Crier’s War by Nina Varela: Romance, Revolutionaries, and ALL the Angsty Fluff

I’m honestly so overwhelmed by just how much I enjoyed this book. High fantasy isn’t normally my jam, but from the very beginning of this, I was obsessed. There’s a timeline at the start of the story that in itself was such an entertaining and interesting read for me, and I couldn’t get enough of … Continue reading Crier’s War by Nina Varela: Romance, Revolutionaries, and ALL the Angsty Fluff

The Tea Dragon Society & The Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill: Soft, Precious, and Lush

I knew this was going to be cute, but I never imagined just how cute it would be. Everything about this series is so lovely, it’s such a sweet and heartfelt experience. The reading experience of these books is genuinely so pleasant and calming, I can’t recommend it enough. If you want a quick and … Continue reading The Tea Dragon Society & The Tea Dragon Festival by Katie O’Neill: Soft, Precious, and Lush

Not a Romantic Comedy: Frankly in Love by David Yoon & Why I Cried

There are so many layers to this book, and I’m not sure if I can adequately talk about them in a review. A jumble of thoughts is running through my mind, like a tangle of wires. At its core, Frankly in Love is not a romance. It’s a story about family, set against the quirky … Continue reading Not a Romantic Comedy: Frankly in Love by David Yoon & Why I Cried

She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller: A Day-Long Story of Sisterhood, Friendship, & Family

I sped through this in the span of a few hours on the trip to college and honestly really enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially because Spieller’s debut leaned a lot more on the romance side, and this leans a lot more on the friendship and sisterhood side, but wow, this was … Continue reading She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller: A Day-Long Story of Sisterhood, Friendship, & Family

Caster by Elsie Chapman: A Thriller feat. Dangerous Magic Games, Diasporic Subthemes, & Gangs

Caster is one of those books that only gets better as you continue reading. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew there was magic, fights, and gangs in this story, and I was all in. And Chapman really pulled through in bringing an engaging and extremely entertaining thriller featuring a giant web of … Continue reading Caster by Elsie Chapman: A Thriller feat. Dangerous Magic Games, Diasporic Subthemes, & Gangs

Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi: A Relatable and Modern Contemporary feat. 20 year-old Characters

Mary H.K. Choi's Permanent Record is not a love story. It's a coming of age story. Choi's writing style is refreshing and extremely appealing to an infrequently catered to market. It's labeled as YA by Simon and Schuster (14+), but I think the people who will enjoy and relate to this the most are college … Continue reading Permanent Record by Mary H.K.
