I’ll Be the One by Lyla Lee is a book I was really looking forward to since I love any book about a competition, and the K-pop concept sounded like a lot of fun. This book was a very entertaining read, and I loved Skye’s strength, but she is not a very complex character and neither are the side characters. I also had some issues with the pacing and the lack of descriptions of Skye’s performances. This book is an enjoyable read if you are looking for something relatively short and sweet, but for me, I would have liked to see more. Continue reading

The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala is a new amazing YA fantasy trilogy that has me so excited. This book isn’t even out until April, but I am so pumped to get into this world. The cover is striking and the concept is one that I haven’t heard of before. A story inspired by ancient Indian history and Hindu mythology is really intriguing. The early reviews on Goodreads are calling it a cat and mouse game. Doesn’t it sound like a fantastic adventure book? Continue reading
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia is a dystopian that this one sounds incredible. I am immediately drawn into this book because of the forbidden love trope.

Looking forward to finding out more about this one in the spring!
