*Spoiler free, but spoilers for Girls Of Paper And Fire*
Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn’t the end of the plan—it’s just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei’s head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within. Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?
I really, really loved Girls Of Paper And Fire and I was really looking forward the sequel. I knew it was going to be intense. A war is starting and there are enemies everywhere for Lei and Wren. The publisher actually sent my a physical ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I still can’t believe they sent it to me and I’m still kind of in shock haha. Thank you so much JimmyBooks! This will not effect my review. Continue reading “Girls Of Storm And Shadow by Natasha Ngan”

I absolutely adored Wilder Girls, so I’m thrilled to be able to share some love for it!

BookCon is a big book convention that takes place in New York at the Javits Center (it took place in Chicago one year, so I don’t know if it will ever move!). It usually takes place the first weekend in June and tons of people go! Lots of people post about being excited for BookCon and all the fun things they plan to do. Me, I get really nervous. The kind of nervous where I wouldn’t mind if it was spontaneously cancelled. I don’t want to be completely negative, because I do end up having a good time and I do end up having a ton of fun, but I guess I want to talk about how I struggle with it.
