4/5 ☕ | When you’re used to reading fast-paced books with big characters and bigger endings, reading a quiet book like this would feel like a shock to the system. For me, reading Strange Weather in Tokyo has been a welcome change – a sudden stop: to breathe and slow down.
6/5 ☕ | Words of Radiance is a brilliant follow-up to a first book that already delivered on all fronts to an astonishing level – cementing The Stormlight Archive series as one of my favorite fantasy series of all time.
4/5 ☕ | It has taken me years to read this book without choking up. And though I still feel that unmistakable emotion bubbling up, it’s now faint enough for me to actually finish this book without feeling bad about life. If there’s anything I regret, it’s that I should’ve let myself read this sooner.
6/5 ☕ | And so I declare this: The Way of Kings is my number 1 read for 2020, so far. The last time I felt this way, I was throwing my paperback book across the bed after I read about that infamous Chapter 51 of A Storm of Swords.
4/5 ☕ | Reading Please Pick Me felt like peeking into something so intimate. With sections titled: flowers, thorns, roots, and seeds – this whole book is a metaphor for, fittingly, growth and all these less-than-picture-perfect facets of life that fundamentally still make up who we are.
5/5 ☕ | I feel like this is one of those books that I won’t forget for a time. Read this book. But be prepared and please bring tissues with you – because it would definitely make you an emotional mess. As it did to me.
5/5 ☕ | The Silvered Serpents is a solid outing by Roshani Chokshi and a strong sequel for such a fantastic series helmed by The Gilded Wolves. This book is emotional and gripping at the same time – something that so few stories have managed to achieve at such a flawless degree.
