The Rebellious Crown 绝世神医之逆天魔妃

The Rebellious Crown 绝世神医之逆天魔妃 ( 醉紅顏,傲視臨川 ) By 荨秣泱泱     Look who is back! Do you miss me? Wow…time has gone pretty fast since the last time I post a review. Sorry for not posting anything for such a long time, I sort of fell into the reading slump and scrambling my way out tirelessly. Besides, I’ve been crushed by all the texts I've to read for all the literature courses and endless essay…god bless me. So what was I doing in this entire year? I rarely read YA, but I turn my attention toward Chinese YA novels. Sound interesting huh? I actually hesitated a lot whether to finish this review or not, since the majority of my readers are more interested in YA and I don’t know if any of you can read Mandarin or not. Yet…I’m definitely writing a review about one of my favorite books among all the Chinese YA novel I’ve read, and I’m hoping that perhaps someday, you might be able to read it in English translation, or, you might be interested enough to read it in Chines

Shadowing (Wintersong Duology 2)

Shadowsong S. Jae-Jones “Once there was a little girl, who played her music for a little boy in the wood. She was an innkeeper’s daughter and he was the Lord of Mischief, but neither were wholly what they seemed, for nothing is as simple as a fairy tale.”     So…let’s say that I secretly came to post a new review…and I’ll quietly walk away since I don’t think anyone will be noticing a new post coming.   Now, let’s get started, shall we? After a long long long time, I finally pick up all my YA novels once more. (Quiet a long reading slump, I get it.) In case you happen to be wondering if I stopped reading or not (please tell me that you do!), the answer is nope, but I’ve been reading looooots of Chinese internet novels, which I won’t be able to share mush in English, after all, most of them are not translated into English. They’re sort of like fantasy, but a mixture of classic Chinese folklore and tales. Hard to explain…but…just go down below and read my other post about

Flame in the Mist

Flame in the Mist By Renee Ahdieh The stars could fall - the moon could crash from the heavens - and Mariko could not care.     God bless my little, tiny heart…I’m completely on fire. I can feel my blood burning while reading the book. And even though I read the first half of it about a half month ago and finished it just now…I can still feel the flame burning right through me. I need the Smoke in the Sun now!!!!!!!!! Oh god…I hereby declare…Renee Ahdieh now ranks even higher than Sarah J Maas. Her books are must-read!!!!!! I command you, yes you, you, and you. Read her series right now!!!!!!! Why does she always write duology???? I need more of her books!!!!!! The Wrath and The Dawn is absolutely one of my favorite retelling of all time…and now? Flame in the Mist is as great as TWATD series!!!!!   The only daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has always known she’d been raised for one purpose and one purpose only: to marry. Never mind her cunning, which rivals

The Struggle to be an All-American Girl  

The Struggle to be an All-American Girl      By Elizabeth Wong     I know, I’m horrible. But I’m not dead…I’m just lazy. So…before I finish my currently reading, I’ve decided to give you something short. A little reflection on what I thought on my school reading.     It's still there, the Chinese school on Yale Street where my brother and I used to go. Despite the new coat of paint and the high wire fence, the school I knew 10 years ago remains remarkably, stoically the same.     Every day at 5 P.M., instead of playing with our fourth and fifth grade friends or sneaking out to the empty lot to hunt ghosts and animal bones, my brother and I had to go to Chinese school. No amount of kicking, screaming, or pleading could dissuade my mother, who was solidly determined to have us learn the language or our heritage. Forcibly, she walked us the seven long, hilly blocks from our home to school, deposing our defiant tearful faces before the stern principal. My only me

Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express By Agatha Christie     What’s the upcoming movie-book adaption??? Murder on the Orient Express!!!!! So, my professor decided that the book for the next semester’s book club will be—Murder on the Orient Express!!!!!! (Oh wait…I haven’t post anything about The Historian for this semester’s book club right? Sorry for that.)    Never mind that…I’ll do it someday. Now, as a diligent student who hope to persuade her parents to study literature for master and doctor degree, I’ve already read the book in preparation for the upcoming semester. (All those diligent stuff are just nonsense…XDD I’m a lazy student who happens to get all A for “literature” courses.) Back to the book, I’m not really used to read this type of book, detectives and murders. I’m not afraid of dark…but I will be terrified after reading those book. However, to my astonishment…I didn’t feel that at all. Does that make this a bad book? Apparently not. I was rather shock that I r

Illuminae (The Illuminae File 1)

Illuminae By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff       Holy molly…this book is incredible!!!!! I love it sooooo much!!!!   Although I was so confuse at the beginning, yet…the book gets better and better and better!!!!!! it’s definitely one of the craziest books I’ve ever read…the plot, the setting…the design!!! Oh. My. God. The design…poor design team…I can hardly imagine how all those things come into pieces. There are so many things inside this book!!!!! The pictures, the codes…and everything, they all make this book perfect.   This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced
