    Oh my goodness gracious, I LOVED THIS!!! From the setting, to the atmosphere of the world, to the f/f romance, I adored just about everything in this book. I think Natasha Ngan just claimed a spot on my auto-buy authors list. What's most striking to me about this novel is how self-a...

    I am very impressed. The thing that stands out to me the most is that the writing was both beautiful and engaging. I enjoyed the main character's arc, the f/f romance, the rebellion aspect, and the class politics. The ending and epilogue were great! Felt like a movie. Audiobook: Abo...

    Whoa this was perfectly magical and emotional and harrowing...so deserving of the hype! It's such a dark premise, but it's handled so well. And can I just say the amount of Asian #ownvoices fantasies coming out at the moment is incredible (!!) not only that this has an f/f romance, dem...

    Yes, I'm totally biased. But guys, this really is the book of my heart. As I say in my author note: The story within these pages is a work of fiction, but also a work of love. The world I created in Ikhara has been heavily inspired by my experiences growing up in Malaysia, a countr...

    In Lei?s world, demons rule over mortals and she, a Paper girl?the lowest of the casts?has no power whatsoever. Until she is sent to serve the king?in bed, mainly?and creates allies. She then realizes she might just have power after all and be meant for more than bedding the ...

    Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan is a young adult fantasy read that again I must stress should be for the more mature audience. There are several things included in this one that deserve a bit of warning before picking it up, violence, slavery, abuse, rape along with animal crue...

    I'm so glad this book, an f/f book about an Asian girl who is a survivor of sexual abuse, is a NYT bestseller. Girls of Paper and Fire is a beautiful, necessary book. It's also very dark by YA fantasy standards. It's worth reading, but I think one should keep in mind that it contain...

    This was a good YA fantasy book. I?m a huge fantasy fan so I was excited to read this. While the pace was a tiny bit up and down at times, enough went on to keep me on my toes and to keep reading. It looks like this is going to be a start of a series which I?m happy about. The w...
