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.

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!

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!

Blog Tour Review + Aesthetic: The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf // A Moving Story Beautifully Told (INTL Giveaway!)

It’s well-known that I’m in love with Asian books.

I mean, I can’t seem to shut up about Asian books I’ve loved and Asian releases I’m looking forward to. The Weight of Our Sky certainly isn’t exempt from my love.

When Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads announced a blog tour for Southeast Asians for this book, I immediately signed up. A chance to read one of my most anticipated books of the year, and talk about how it related to my Southeast Asian identity? Hell yeah.

I was ecstatic to be accepted for the blog tour, and I’m so thankful that I got to read this stunning book. Hopefully by the end of my review I can convince you all to read it as well!
