Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

The first chapter of this book hooked me! I knew as soon as I finished it that I would love the book. My attention waned a lot in the middle with the Black Clan’s camp, though. It started to feel kind of generic fantasy and I started losing interest. Thankfully it didn’t last long. Once certain things started happening, it grabbed me again and didn’t let go! And what an explosive ending!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Japanese culture in this book!! […]

Review: The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Review: The Young Elites by Marie Lu

The gods gave us powers because we were born to rule. I was DYING to read this book ever since I heard about it, because I love Marie’s world building and the idea sounded awesome. Then, some not-so-great reviews started trickling in. I lowered my expectations. But, I still had hope, because I can’t imagine it being bad if it was written by Marie Lu. The result? I was blown away! The first thing you need to know is that […]
