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!
check out the full blog tour schedule here!

If there’s anything I want in YA, it’s girl gangs.
You’ve all heard me scream about the importance of female friendships in YA, and how much I love reading them.
Well, when an opportunity arose for me to hop on this blog tour for Undead Girl Gang, I jumped at the chance. (“Jumped” meaning actually physically got freaked out and extremely excited.)
I was very pleased to not be disappointed by this book! There wasn’t a lot of hype for it (though there SHOULD be), so I didn’t form the highest of expectations, but it definitely did surprise me. It took zombie girls to a WHOLE new level.
This is my stop on the Undead Girl Gang blog tour! Thank you to Penguin Random House for providing me a review copy in exchange for a spot on this blog tour.

So I absolutely ADORED The Nowhere Girls.
Pretty cover?* Check. Important messages? Check. Great characters? Check. AND SO MUCH MORE.
It was just such an inspiring book, and it’s something that I feel EVERYONE needs to read, because it’s just so so powerful. It made me feel all sorts of emotions—sadness, anger, frustration, hope, bittersweetness… I’M JUST A MESS FROM THIS BOOK OKAY.
Just read it pleeeeeeease.
*Obviously this comes first.

*Please note that I am sick and therefore my thoughts may be a little jumbled, and this post may or may not have a sucky featured image.
I don’t usually read contemporaries. So then they all decided to attack me.
I first thought contemporaries were all drama-y and not that interesting to read. (Save the school drama for school please.)
But actually, contemporaries are smol little beings that 1) are unique in style and voice, 2) talk about and address modern issues, and 3) are almost always deep and meaningful. Meaning not your school drama type of book.
So after realizing this, of course I have to go and read some fantastic contemporaries.
