Blog Tour Review: The Dragon Warrior by Katie Zhao // The Asian Middle Grade Fantasy Perfect for PJO Fans!

I’m back on brand today with another Asian fantasy!!

If you’ve been a reader of my blog long enough, you’ll know that one of the things I cherish and champion the most is Asian books, especially Asian fantasies. This time around, though, it’s a bit different, because it’s a genre I don’t usually review: Middle Grade!

I have a soft spot for Middle Grade books, though I don’t read nearly enough of them, so when the lovely Shealea announced a book tour for The Dragon Warrior at Caffeine Book Tours, I knew I had to sign up.

Today I’m excited to review The Dragon Warrior (and feature some photos, quotes, and an aesthetic) and talk about all the things I loved about it!! It’s one of my most anticipated releases, and I hope it’s one of yours too.

May’s Moments of the Month: September // I Disappeared on Accident… and Was Terribly Unproductive

Hi, I miss you guys!!

I’ve done exactly what I hoped I wouldn’t: disappeared from blogging because of school. I want to say I wasn’t expecting it but… I was. I was just really hoping I could keep myself afloat with everything going on my life but clearly things don’t work out that way!

I tried to come up with more things to talk about that happened in September, in an effort to update you guys on my life, but everything has just been consumed by school. But it means this post is SLIGHTLY less short than my usual recaps!!

Blog Tour Review: Crier’s War by Nina Varela // The Stunning Slowburn F/F Enemies To Lovers of My Dreams (+ INTL Giveaway)

I’m not usually a big romance obsessor, but this one really nailed it.

Slowburn, enemies to lovers, AND f/f?? Nina Varela really said “May rights” and “gay rights” with this one, because I love all of those romance tropes and she executed them perfectly in her debut.

If it isn’t already clear, I absolutely adored Crier’s War, and today I’m hopefully going to convince you to pick it up! (If not for everything I mention in my review, then certainly for this actual sent-from-heaven book cover.)

Thank you so much to Karina @ Afire Pages for allowing me to be a part of the blog tour for this amazing book! I’m a day late in posting this, and I’m so extremely sorry.

Blog Tour Review: The Stars and the Blackness Between Them by Junauda Petrus // One of the Most Gorgeous Stories of the Year

Ever read a book and feel viscerally changed as a person?

That’s me with The Stars and the Blackness Between Them, because oh my god. There are so many emotions running through me because of this book, and I don’t know how to fully articulate them. But today I’m here to attempt to write a review and convince you to pick this book up, because it’s worthy of all your love and adoration.

When Penguin reached out to me about their Daring Debuts Blogger Campaign that featured this book, I jumped on the chance, because I had a strong feeling that the book would be beautiful and that I would love it. And I was right!! So thank you to Penguin for being the absolute best for sending me all these amazing books!!!

ARC Review: SLAY by Brittney Morris // An Enjoyable, Beautiful Book Celebrating Blackness

Hello I’m still screaming that I was lucky enough to read this book!!!

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have gotten an ARC of one of my most anticipated releases for the last half of the year. (And talking to the publicist was one of the highlights of my year, because she’s genuinely the kindest soul ever.)

I can safely and HAPPILY say that I was not disappointed by this book in the least! And I’m excited to be sharing my thoughts with you today and hopefully convince you to pick it up when it releases next month!
