Blog Tour Review: The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea G Stewart // Immersive Fantasy that Unfurls Deliciously

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.

Thank you so much to Kate for making it possible for me to have received an ARC of this book and be a part of this blog tour!

ARC Review: The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar // The Delightfully Sapphic QPOC Romance of My (and Your) Dreams!

Is there anything as beautiful as feeling represented in media?

The Henna Wars was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I’m so excited for everyone else to be able to read and love this as much as I did. I expected a lot of things going in to this book, but I honestly was really surprised by how much I connected to the main character as a queer person of color!

I’m here today to hopefully convince you all to pick up this wonderful book. I know a lot of people are eagerly awaiting this book’s release, and you will not be disappointed!

ARC Review: The Electric Heir by Victoria Lee // A Poignant Story of Survivors

Victoria Lee said I’m gonna give the gays everything they want but also break their hearts a little. as a treat.

Some of you may recall last year when I talked a lot about The Fever King, an epic dystopian-ish sci-fi fantasy about magic and plagues and two boys in love. It’s one of my favorites, so when I was offered the chance to read and review the sequel, I was beyond ecstatic!

Today I’m here to talk about (aka gush over) The Electric Heir. It, as stated, includes gays and heartbreak, and it was the perfect sequel and ending to Noam and Dara’s story.

(Also bonus! You can get The Fever King for 99 cents right now on Kindle US!)

This review is spoiler-free, for both book 1 and book 2.

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.
