‘The Gilded Wolves’/Reading Blog #1

I’m up to page 108 in ‘The Gilded Wolves’. I’ve heard many mixed reviews about this novel, plus many comparisons to ‘Six of Crows’. So far, the only resemblance I see to ‘Six of Crows’ is that there is a planned heist, and it involves a group of people. Aside from those two facts, theContinue reading “‘The Gilded Wolves’/Reading Blog #1”

Asian Readathon Blog #2

I’m now at Chapter 10 of ‘Girls of Paper and Fire’. There is a lot of build-up as Lei and the other Paper Girls prepare to meet the Demon King. There’s also lots of history about aristocratic women and their fashion sense, along with deep-rooted class differences between Paper and Steel castes. I really appreciateContinue reading “Asian Readathon Blog #2”
