Oh my god.
This cover is so gorgeous, I can't take it.
I must read this book.
I am a shallow person like that.
A shallow person that needs this on her bookshelf.

No title, no description, I don't care. Renee wrote The Wrath and the Dawn. She wrote Shazi and Khalid. I will automatically buy anything she writes now.

Conversation with parts of myself upon finishing:

Heart: RENEE, WHAT KIND OF TWISTY EMOTIONAL GENIUS WAS THIS. SEE THIS? *flings crumpled red thing on floor* THAT WAS MY HEART.

Brain: BUT HOW. The layered-ness. The prosey-ness. So melt in your mouth delicious. I wanna eat it! Is it edible? *nibbles laptop* No. No it is not. That was a mistake. Why did we do that.

Body: *starts singing R. Kelly* I don't see nothing wronnnnnnnng with a lil bump 'n griiiiiiind (this book was STEAMY)

Soul: I'm hurting.

Renee Ahdieh could be writing about how to feed penguins and I would still probably read it.

set in feudal Japan
using legends, myths, and actual history

Written by Renée Ahdieh

Um, I actually wanna cry with joy

Edit Oct 5th, 2016 That cover is literally ablaze with beauty.



Edit Aug 9th, 2016 We have a title.

And finally the mystery of Ahdieh's Asian garments on Pinerest has been revealed: Flame in the Mist is apparently going to be based on 47 Ronin (hence the Japanese setting) and the famous Mulan, which is only one of my favourite Chinese legends and Disney movies ever, so yeah, I'm calm. NOT.

Now that I have your attention, let me take the time to hype up this book I haven't even read yet. Because I already know it is going to be absolutely amazing.

This is by far my most anticipated release of 2017. I would do anything right now for an ARC tbh. (Renee...if ya reading this...)

I preordered this book the second I saw the name Renee Ahdieh tagged on that breathtaking cover. Ever since I read The Wrath & the Dawn

The cover is FUCKING GLORIOUS.

1) Mash-up between Mulan and 47 Ronin
2) It is set in feudal Japan, using a mix of legends and history to tell the story.

YES. PLEASE.

P.s. Please, let there be a cute Japanese boy in it.

THIS WAS INCREDIBLE AND GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Okay, my actual blurb:
Flame in the Mist is impeccable.
To anyone who has read Ahdieh's first duology, it should come as no surprise that her newest book contains spectacular worldbuilding, magnificent characters, and a kickbutt heroine who doesn't need a knight in shining armor.
More importantly, Flame in the Mist is a book you want to pick back up again the second you finish it, believing that somehow there is
