An Everything & More Interview: Katie Zhao

Hi readers!

I’m just about quivering with excitement for this interview today!! I’ve been a fan of Katie’s stories since The Dragon Warrior! Since then, it’s just been so amazing to see her write (and sell!!) more books. I know Last Gamer Standing is at the top of my TBR pile, and How We Fall Apart‘s release date is coming up on August 17! Which, of course, should be at the top of your TBRs as well πŸ˜‰.

Mini Reviews: Kingdom of Secrets and Made in China

Hi readers!

Yes, I know that I am so behind on reviews πŸ˜ͺ. These are some more books that came out on August 3! Unliked Like a Love Song and So We Meet Again, this post has a bit more of a mixed bag. Here are my thoughts on Kingdom of Secrets and Made in China (a memoir!):

Mini Reviews: Like a Love Song and So We Meet Again

Hi readers!

I feel like I haven’t blogged in a while. Most of July and August were dedicated to moving (the boxes are never-ending) and being overwhelmed by a lot of other things outside of my control. However, I do have the blogging itch back! I have some reviews coming and other (hopefully) fun ideas in the works, featuring music of course. But anyway, back to the reviews: first up are Like a Love Song and So We Meet Again!

Blog Tour: Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao

Hi readers!

August is marching along, so that means that September book releases are coming!! Including…IRON WIDOW by Xiran Jay Zhao πŸ‘€. Thank you to Caffeine Book Tours for selecting me and my blog as one of the hosts, and here is the launch post about the tour and the other hosts!

When I say you’re not ready for this book, you’re not ready for this book, but, at the same time, you need this book! So without further ado, here is my IRON WIDOW review, plus some fun quote graphics at the end ~

Review: How We Fall Apart by Katie Zhao

Hi readers!

I hope you all are doing well! August is winding down, and students are preparing to go back to school. While this is my first August/fall that I don’t have to go to school (😱), reading How We Fall Apart by Katie Zhao caused me to relive my high school days. HWFA is intense suspense as much as it is sharp criticism of the competition in schools, a fire that is fanned particularly in the Asian American community.

Mini Review: She Who Became the Sun and You Can’t Say That!

Hi readers!

What a week. Not only do I feel like the summer is flying by, but there has been a lot of personal stuff going on which makes time not feel real (even more so lol) πŸ˜…. But! I have some fun reviews today, both which I enjoyed a lot! One is adult historical fiction, and the other is a YA anthology consisting of interviewsβ€”they are very different, but, hey that’s okay πŸ˜‰.

Mini Reviews: The Taking of Jake Livingston and Yolk

Hi readers!

Do you ever have those days where you just dream about something coming true that you almost believe that it’s reality? Odd start to this post, I know (a lot on the mind recently), but it also semi-connects to these books I’m talking about today!

Author Interview: K. Ancrum on Darling’s Inspiration, Fanart, and Fancasts

Hi readers!

I’m pretty sure the beginnings of all of my posts are a variety of “How is it x month already??” and this one is going to be that way too πŸ˜‚. So…I can’t believe it’s July, and I also can’t believe I haven’t posted anything on this blog since mid-June. Whoops.

Mini Reviews: The Secret Starling // Darling

Hi readers!

The summer heat over here in the U.S. is stifling, to say the least. I’m not the biggest fan of the heat lol; please give me air conditioning and maybe the ocean.

Mini Reviews: The Marvelous // The Sea Is Salt and So Am I

Hi readers!

I feel like all of my introductions are just me being like “how is it already ___???” 😭 But seriously, time truly does seem to go faster as you get older. Besides my perpetual surprise at this weird concept called time, I hope you are all doing well!

I’m excited to review two books that come out today (June 8)! Both surprised me in unexpected ways, especially The Marvelous by Claire Kann. Anyway, the reviews!
