Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Pride & Prejudice + Muslim Remix = Perfect Romcom! Ayesha at Last was sweet, heartfelt, uplifting, and just perfect. I love the nods to Pride & Prejudice, while staying true to the character’s Muslim heritage. The family interactions were so touching and beautiful, and the slow-burn romance was absolutely adorkable. All in all, this book […]

Gumiho: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho Review: Tantalizing, Thrilling Tale of a Modern Day Gumiho

Gumiho: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho Review: Tantalizing, Thrilling Tale of a Modern Day Gumiho

If I could sum up Wicked Fox, it would be into two (both equally fantabulous) parts: Part 1: Soft, Fluffy School Kdrama The first part of the story starts with the introduction of Miyoung, a cold and calculated gumiho (nine tailed fox) who recently moved to Seoul with her equally beautiful, equally smart mother. But readers […]

Serious Moonlight Review: A Seriously Good Book

Serious Moonlight Review: A Seriously Good Book

I loved the setting, the characters, the issues discussed, the mystery and just the […]

The Bride Test Review: Adorable #OwnVoices Romance with Vietnamese + Autism Rep

The Bride Test Review: Adorable #OwnVoices Romance with Vietnamese + Autism Rep

I’m not really a reader of the romance genre, but The Kiss Quotient and now The Bride Test has redefined the genre for me. Especially since it covers #ownvoices Vietnamese and autism rep. What I appreciated about The Bride Test, is the rags to riches story of Esme, the poor Vietnamese-American immigrant who travels to the United […]

5 Things I Liked About What I Like About Me

5 Things I Liked About What I Like About Me

I wasn’t sure what to expect from What I Like About Me because the synopsis reminded me so much of Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, with the beauty pageant and body positivity aspects. But What I Like About Me is definitely a vastly different book to Dumplin’. It is very quintessentially Australian and I related to it much more than I related to Dumplin’ because […]

Set against the staggering desert landscape of Ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a story about a dark Prince and a Huntress dressed as a man uncovering a legendary artifact to release magic into their world.
