Review: The Rise of Kyoshi (The Kyoshi Novels, #1) by F.C. Yee

4/5 ☕ | The Rise of Kyoshi is necessary reading for all fans of the Avatar universe. You would think that that we wouldn’t be able to frame an Avatar background story in a new light anymore – but F.C. Yee managed to expand the Avatar lore effectively.

Review: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

5/5 ☕ | If you are a fan of Gothic stories and decadent horror, this is definitely for you.

You know that feeling when you’re completely sucked in and already so deeply invested that you don’t want the book to end? It may sound so cliché at this point, but this is literally what I felt reading this book – dreading the last chapter but still keeping at it because… what else can you do when you’ve already fallen head-over-heels in love?
