For Those Who Hated Wicked Saints: What We Devour – An ARC Review

Eat your heart out, Wicked Saints! Because this book is going to give you a run for your money. With characters you will absolutely fall in love with, a unique (but confusing) magic system and a plot that just keeps giving, a single review is not enough to sum up just how intricate and detailed all the elements of What We Devour are. In fact, there are so many other things I had to exclude from this review just so I could keep it relatively short.  … More For Those Who Hated Wicked Saints: What We Devour – An ARC Review

Desi Readers Deserve Better: Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses – An ARC Review

Very rarely do I ever refuse to finish a book. Almost all the time, I will put it aside and return to it at a later date when I feel like I’d be more accepting of the content. Sometimes I return to it, sometimes I don’t. But I will always have it on the back burner, waiting to return to it. However, this is not the case with Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses. … More Desi Readers Deserve Better: Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses – An ARC Review

Take My Money: Fire with Fire – A Blog Tour Review with Favourite Quotes

Writing reviews about perfect books are extremely difficult because I’m so used to dissecting a book and finding mostly negative qualities about it, despite how much I can love it. When I started reading the first few pages and saw that it was a modern setting (I guess I missed the memo when I read the synopsis), I was a little turned off. But, I was absolutely blown away with just how good Fire with Fire is. My expectations were blown sky high, completely out of proportions because everything in the book just works. … More Take My Money: Fire with Fire – A Blog Tour Review with Favourite Quotes

Definition of A Problematic Fave: Spark to Shadow – A Blog Tour Review + Favourite Quotes

It makes me come off as standoffish and elitist but I’m not one to ever pick up a self-published or even indie-published book. I’ve been burned one too many times in my early review days and with so many books to read and so many reviews to write, I’m highly selective. But, Spark to Shadow has renewed my faith in books published in the non-traditional way! It’s not without it’s problems but from beautiful landscapes, a feminist-inspired society, strong female leads, adorable soft boys, sex positivity, Asian influence and dragons, this is one book you have to pick up immediately. In fact, I’d recommend that everyone go and buy it now! … More Definition of A Problematic Fave: Spark to Shadow – A Blog Tour Review + Favourite Quotes

Please Make This A K-Drama: Made in Korea – A Blog Tour Review and

Being frustratingly short is Made in Korea’s biggest flaw; I wanted so much more of the story, so much more of the details, the emotions and the romantic development! Featuring a cast of Koreans and a story full with intricacies only those raised Asian would be able to understand, Made in Korea is utterly charming and completely wholesome. And while there are a couple of things I didn’t quite like, it was a great debut novel and I cannot wait to read so much more from Sarah Suk. This is definitely one for the “Best of 2021” lists! … More Please Make This A K-Drama: Made in Korea – A Blog Tour Review and

YA Equivalent of A Black Mirror Episode: The Ones We’re Meant to Find – An ARC Review and Favourite Quotes

Reading The Ones We’re Meant to Find left me feeling conflicted. On one hand, I loved the plot, the characters and the world Joan He crafted albeit a confusing one (but I always have a hard time wrapping my head around sci-fi settings!). On the other, there are quite a number of things I was dissatisfied with. But, the more I thought about it, the more this duality made sense; after all, the duality between the sisters are the very core of The Ones We’re Meant to find. … More YA Equivalent of A Black Mirror Episode: The Ones We’re Meant to Find – An ARC Review and Favourite Quotes

Bigger, Bolder, Better: Red Tigress – An ARC Review

While Blood Heir’s message about human trafficking and Othering was compelling enough to overshadow the lack of complexity in the overall storytelling, it is much harder to do overlook Red Tigress’ flaws as the latter is pure fantasy storytelling. Despite this, Red Tigress is more engaging, the characters are well-developed and the book as a whole feels more compelling. Reading it makes me so satisfied and leaves me doing a happy dance. … More Bigger, Bolder, Better: Red Tigress – An ARC Review

Remarkably Underwhelming Yet Overcomplicated: Wench – A Blog Tour Review

For a book that reads rather easily, Wench overcompensates a rich, detailed world with an abundance of meaningless description that although sets the scene and adds quirky trivia about characters, does nothing but make a wordy book even more wordy. Hi, book fam! Another day, another book tour and today, I’m featuring Wench by Maxine … More Remarkably Underwhelming Yet Overcomplicated: Wench – A Blog Tour Review

Fantasies Don’t Have to Be Violent: Cast in Firelight – A Blog Tour Review

Despite the title of this review, Cast in Firelight does have a healthy dose of violence involved but I promise you, this isn’t some form of clickbait! And, I will get to that in a bit but first, I have to say I was incredibly delighted with Cast in Firelight despite my misgivings about it. After all, seeing a white author’s name attached to a book that is clearly about Indian culture and characters is rather frustrating and I was completely prepared to obliterate the book. … More Fantasies Don’t Have to Be Violent: Cast in Firelight – A Blog Tour Review
