    I?ve been so interested to read this book since I first heard of it a few months ago and have been waiting for weeks now to get it from my library. It felt so nice to finally get it in my hands and I had such fun reading and highlighting the hell out of this book in a single sitting....

    *is no longer speaking to Tehlor* Now that we have that out of the way, this is an unsettlingly prescient read for the state of politics in 2018-19 - like, it's literally about wall-crossing "illegals"and has a bunch of characters you'll want to rip apart with your bare hands and th...

    3.5 stars Great debut! I enjoyed the writing and the world this book takes place in however I felt the romance needed more depth and felt a little rushed as well as the plot at times, though I would definitely say this book is more plot heavy than anything else. It was definitel...

    I read a real early draft and it was magic then and from all accounts has only gotten better. I can't waaaaaittttt. Update 12/13/2018: it has gotten better. This is a story of immigration and revolution and family. Tehlor?s written something gay and special I think. ...

    Let's start by saying that I appreciate the representation and the timeliness of the topic but unfortunately that's all which is the reason for the low rating. The MC, Dani, was nothing special. She was the typical character who wants to please her parents even if it means sacrific...

    ? Video Review ? We all know Dystopian has had its big hype and it seems like it's not coming back anytime soon. But with WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE, Tehlor Kay Mejia managed to write a truly engaging, very timely Dystopian Fantasy that feels different from what we've seen before...

    This book made me feel a lot. Mostly anger. But not at the book. Just at some of the similarities to what we're seeing in the world right now. Dani came illegally over the wall into the legal side of her country. She still grew up close to the border which is very po...

    THIS. BOOK. IS. SO. GAY that i didn't care about the plot. i've zoned out most of the time and i'm not even sorry. _____________ it's time for f/f relationships to have their glory and together they will throw the guts of the guys who made them feel lesser into the deep sea. ...

    We Set the Dark on Fire is one of those books that you could not put it down because you had to see how it ended. It's an excited and interested dystopian, that in some ways reflects our current political world and it's scary sometimes. Usually, I'm not a big fan of dystopia, but that...
