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.

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.

Gay witches book.

That’s what this book, These Witches Don’t Burn, has been dubbed, and honestly, what better way to promote it?

Today, I’m very excited to bring you a review and aesthetic of These Witches Don’t Burn as part of the Penguin Summer Lovin’ blogger Campaign! This campaign features three different LGBTQIAP+ books that have recently been published, and I’m honored to be the first stop for this book!

ARC Review: Stronger than a Bronze Dragon by Mary Fan // Enjoyable Asian Steampunk Fantasy!

Another Asian fantasy?? You heard right.

I’m back with yet another review of an Asian fantasy I adored, because it’s just my brand!!!

When I first heard of this book, I was really intrigued by the blurb, because it talked about an acrobat warrior girl and a witty thief going on an epic adventure, and just hearing about that dynamic added five years to my lifespan. It turned out to be a super fun book to read, with a unique blend of steampunk and magic, and I’m excited to talk to you guys all about it today!

ARC Review: The Candle and the Flame by Nafiza Azad // Rich Asian Fantasy with Beautiful Writing and Fierce Characters!

There’s nothing I love more than Asian fantasy!!

(Asian FOOD is the only exception I’ll make—and this book has that as well.)

Today I’m here with a list of all the things I loved (and the few things I didn’t) about The Candle and the Flame!! I first heard of this book months ago and knew I had to read it. It sounded amazing from the start (djinn! Silk Road! magic!), and then the gorgeous cover was released, and my excitement for it increased tenfold.

I genuinely mean it when I say that if my review doesn’t manage to convince you to pick this up, the cover will, because LOOK AT IT.
