.... and I'm out. This is insufferable. Granted, I'm not the target audience to begin with. But it's not even the concept of "1001 Nights as a YA love story" that is putting me off the most, even though that does have at least something to do with it. Shahrazād, in the original version, uses a...

4.5 stars Oh my, my, my, I am breathless ! What a glorious twist of One Thousand and One Nights. The vivid detailing in this story was so richly done I think I gained 5 pounds on description of foods alone. The clothing, the town, the palace, the horses, the landscape, each given such beauty in this...

There were a ton of things I loved about this story, and I'm sure I'll miss some in this review, so sorry in advance! It's been billed as a Mulan retelling, which I think is a huge stretch, as the only similarities are girl crossdressing/masquerading as a boy, a bit of learning to fight, East Asian ...

Full disclaimer I bought this on a whim because I thought the cover was pretty. I honestly didn't know much about it, but I had seen it a lot online. This was a couple of years ago so when I decided to pick it up the other day I went in remembering really nothing about it. I was pleasantly surprised...

Book Riot Read Harder Challenge Item: A book set in the Middle East This is a first novel, and it feels like one. The prose is overwritten and tends toward the purple, and it resorts to using the same descriptions far too often. Like, we don't need to know that Jalid has "tiger eyes" each time he ...

"And they held each other in stillness until a silver dawn broke the horizon." It's hard to believe The Wrath and the Dawn is a debut novel. It's so damn well written. So many quotable moments between the characters. And going in, I knew nothing about A Thousand and One Nights so I have nothing to ...
