It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

This was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was really hoping for this to be a 5 star book for me. While it didn’t quite make it as high as my expectations, I enjoyed it a lot! The concept is really cool – I loved the gilded ones, alaki, and the deathshrieks. The narrator (Shayna Small) is FANTASTIC! Honestly, she brought this book to life and I know that I wouldn’t have enjoyed it half as much as […]

If you enjoyed These Broken Stars, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too! It had a similar feel despite the fact that the world and concept was pretty different. I loved the setting and the concept! There’s a land of magic and gods on the ground, where only one remaining divinity still reigns. All the rest of the gods are believed to have abandoned the land of magic to the sky, but there’s a hidden city of science in the sky and […]

Wow. What a powerful story! This book absolutely broke my heart, and I felt so angry and indignant for the things that Shirin had to go through. This book is definitely important, and one that I think everyone should read! I hated the pathetic, soul-sucking effort it took to finally make a single friend brave enough to sit next to me in public. Coming from a place of privilege, it’s hard to ever imagine what going through these things would […]

If you know me, you know I am a HUGE sucker for Asian Fantasy. Especially if it’s Japanese. And there’s so few of them! This had everything I love about Japanese fantasy – oni, yokai, kitsune, miko, Shinto shrines, and plenty of glorious Japanese culture. (Which I am positively obsessed with.) That was definitely my favorite part of this book! It was super easy to picture everything – you know how some books tell you they’re in a certain country/place, […]
