A Book that Won Me Over

The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars She reminded herself bitterly that this was what curiosity had bought her: fifty keystones for a singer who refused to sing, a friend who wasn't her friend, some one who was hers and yet would never be hers. The Winner's Curse is now… Continue reading A Book that Won Me Over

A Crush So Unrequited

My first attempt to watch A Love So Beautiful was a total failure. Even though I was intrigued by the cast and premise of the drama, I simply could not handle the tonal cadence of the Chinese language; it sounded so weird compared to the Korean language, which I had grown to love. Another reason for my… Continue reading A Crush So Unrequited

Thank God I Got Carried Away

Caraval by Stephanie Garber My rating: 4.75 of 5 stars In many ways, loving Tella was a source of constant pain. The latter quote perfectly describes what Caraval is about: a girl who goes through a lot of suffering because of her sister. In a way, this book is another tribute to Frozen. The plot… Continue reading Thank God I Got Carried Away

To Take a Heart

To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo My rating: 4.75 of 5 stars Thank you, Macmillan, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
