What the K Is This?

I really should’ve done my research on the source material because little did I know that Anna Karenina was actually about infidelity. The main characters practically had a deadly affair and ruined each other’s lives just to soothe their loins. The same thing almost happened in this book.

It Wasn’t All for Nothing

This was mostly a satisfying ending to a gripping trilogy. I reread the previous two books before starting The Queen of Nothing just to refresh my memory, so I got to enjoy the world of Faerie in all its terrible glory.

A Love Triangle that’s Actually Likable

Not only does this book have a super cute cover; it also has one of the most relatable characters in YA fiction. Most readers will like the sweet “love triangle.” But if you’re a fellow book blogger or reviewer, you’re going to resonate with the story on an entirely different level.

This Manga Has Nothing to Do with Cannibalism

I Want to Eat Your Pancreas is one of my least favorite manga this year. However, regardless of my frustration with the protagonists, I liked the overall message of the story: You can enjoy life even if you have a terminal illness.

Always Such a Flirt

I bought this book only because it was written by a real-life couple. The idea of creating a novel with a loved one appealed to the romantic in me, and I wanted to see how two intimate people could integrate their unique voices into a single point of view.

If My Life Were a K-drama

Do you know what I love about stories in general? They stimulate my creativity and make me imagine a lot of things, both possible and impossible. K-dramas, in particular, excel in this regard because of their seemingly flawless characters and inevitable happy endings.
