This book has a great opening, a great premise and a satisfactory ending. I also really loved all the dragon quotes between all the chapters.

But unfortunately for me, i have three main problems with this book.

The first one is, I felt there was too m
The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
" Yeas!!! Keep reading them!!! XD "
Alex is 61% done with The Great Zoo of China: Funnily enough the constant action is wearing me out a lot. I kinda want it to slow down for a bit and get some character or world development rather than action for a while.

Akira Kurosawa
“Page 61: No matter where I go in the world, although I can't speak any foreign language, I don't feel out of place. I think of earth as my home. If everyone thought this way, people might notice just how foolish international friction is and the would be put an end to it.”
Akira Kurosawa, Something Like an Autobiography

Michelle Cohen Corasanti
“Hatred is self-punishment. Do you think they're feeling bad because you hate them?”
Michelle Cohen Corasanti, The Almond Tree

Kiera Cass
“So I have absolutely no privacy anymore? None? Because the four of you had to check scores with each other?” His frustration was clear.
“You know, for someone concerned with honesty, you ought to be grateful.”
He stopped and stared. “I beg your pardon?”
“Everything is out in the open now. We all have a pretty good idea of where we stand, and I, for one, am thankful.”
He rolled his eyes. “Thankful?” “If you had told me that Celeste and I were at about the same point with you physically, I would never have tried to come on to you like I did last night. Do you know how humiliated I was?” He scoffed and started pacing again. “Please, America, you’ve said and done so many foolish things, I’m surprised you can even be embarrassed anymore.”
Kiera Cass, The One

Gabrielle Zevin
“Sometimes books don't find us until the right time.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Brandon Sanderson
“I'm not really sure why. But... do you stop loving someone just because they betray you? I don't think so. That's what makes the betrayal hurt so much - pain, frustration, anger... and I still loved her. I still do.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire
