Book Review: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress, #1)

I was really looking forward to picking up Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress, #1) by Julie C. Dao, after seeing so many positive reviews for it. Unfortunately, this book just didn’t live up to my high expectations. An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl’s quest to… Continue reading Book Review: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns (Rise of the Empress, #1)

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar… Continue reading Book Review: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

Book Review: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

I recently did a reread of Marissa Meyer’s Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1). I first read it back on its initial release and had completely forgotten about what happened, so I figured a reread was in desperate need before I continued on with the rest of the series. Luckily, it was just as fun as I remembered… Continue reading Book Review: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)
