There are times when you finish a book and all you can do is sit in silence.
Today, I’m here to review (and convince you all to read) These Violent Delights, a highly anticipated book I’m sure all of you have heard of and have been counting down the days until. When I reached the end of it, I lay on my couch in silence with a feeling in my chest akin to the release of a held breath, a sense of awe washing over me as the full weight of the book and everything in it sunk in. And I can’t wait for you all to feel the same way about it too.
Also, I’m mentioning this for absolutely no reason at all, but… tomorrow (Nov 17) is my birthday, aka this book’s release date, so maybe you could buy this book and get a 21-year-old Asian author on the NYT bestselling list as a cool birthday gift to me!!!

Another day, another sapphic book!
Last year, I fell in love with the YA fantasy Crier’s War. It had everything I wanted in a book: slowburn enemies to lovers f/f, compelling characters, and absolutely stunning writing. I’m so excited to have been able to read the sequel Iron Heart and be reviewing it today! If you’re eagerly awaiting this book after having read the first one, or interested in this series (especially with their gorgeous covers), I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

There are no spoilers for Iron Heart in this review, and though I tried my best to keep every reference I made to the events of Crier’s War vague, they may be viewed as spoilers, so take care!

I’m back with another Asian fantasy to push on to you!
I am so excited to be here today to talk about and review The Bone Shard Daughter, which was one of my most anticipated releases of the year. While it was not what I expected, I loved it so much and I can’t wait to see others fall in love with it too! (And I’ll say after being disappointed by several Asian fantasies this year, I am beyond happy this was quite an exception.

Welcome to my stop on the Unravel the Dusk blog tour!
I won’t be posting my book review today, because unfortunately I didn’t love this book as much as I wanted to. (Rest assured, though, many of the issues I had were due to personal and not objective reasons, especially being in a bit of a slump!)
But I will be sharing a few aesthetics I made, as well as some photos I took, and talking about a few themes that the book explored that I enjoyed! Everything I discuss will be spoiler-free, both about Spin the Dawn and Unravel the Dusk.

It isn’t every day you get to read about book blogging in an actual book.
I’ve always wanted to read about a teen book blogger like myself, and so when Simon & Schuster reached out to me about the chance to read What I Like About You, a book with exactly that, I couldn’t help but say yes!
Though I had one slight issue with the book, it felt more of a personal than universal thing, and I still had lots of fun reading this cute romance. Told in a modern, fresh voice, Halle’s story is definitely unputdownable, and you’ll find yourself loving all the relationships she forges and needing to know what happens next!!
