    ?you are not defined by the men in your life, no matter how powerful. You lived before them and you shall live after them. You can?t let them determine your path.? 3 1/2 stars. Now THIS is the feminist YA fantasy of 2018, not Heart of Thorns. It's imperfect, yes, falling into ...

    i got this book in owlcrates september box and im so happy because this wasnt even on my radar! this book was relatively short and so it wasted no time with a slow build up. the story dived straight into the world building which, honestly, was a bit overwhelming. but eventually tha...

    This is such a lush sci-fi with an AWESOME premise! Body-doubles and rich backstabby courts and rebellions and the actual most intricately detailed culture and world! (Although lowkey thought it was fantasy?! I think the non-galaxy-starry cover threw me haha.) It's also really importan...

    A book, for me, can have a thousand tropes, but as long as it has this one specific element, it can be a thousand times glorious. Intensity. I don?t want to read a dull story. I don?t want to not feel anything. I want to be moved to ugly tears and be made so angry I can?t ...

    Science fiction can be hit and miss for me, so I don?t request ARCs from the genre terribly often, but when I heard the synopsis on this one?and the fact that it has own-voice Moroccan rep, which I?d never seen in a story before?I knew it was one I couldn?t afford to miss out...

    Okay so I have not been having good luck with YA SFF this year. But wow I really liked this. There were so many elements that I am obsessed with. The best thing was hands down the amazing and complex relationship between Amani and Maram. Despite looking identical, they are as different...

    I have been waiting for this book and I didn't even know it. Smart, fast-paced, sexy, heartbreaking, with spectacular worldbuilding. The cultural details, from names to clothes to physical descriptions to poetry are so painstakingly and carefully done. It's a sci-fi that feels like a f...

    This was another just okay read for me. I wasn?t a fan of some of the scifi elements, maybe that type of stuff just isn?t my thing. I did really like Amani and her poetry fetish. Although the writing was excellent and the romance was nice, I just wasn?t fist pumping over this one...

    I am, as the poets say, a complete fucking mess over this book. I love this book for many reasons. Least of which is that lately I?ve been full of the restless, dissatisfied energy that seemed to move into my heart after finishing a book, I?ve been chasing that particular high y...

    Release date: August 28, 2018 Ok pretty sure this is going to be another one of my top reads of this year. It felt like a fantasy story with sci-fi elements mixed in and was just so wonderfully original. I was initially going to mention that I thought this story had echoes of Star W...
