happy book birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I just noticed that Natasha said in her review that this book is full of "cute queer boy demons" and my gay heart is already palpitating
It's here and I am so glad I got the coverless ARC because.. this cover.. is... not my cup of tea..
WE HAVE A COVER AND I AM
Please let November come sooner! I NEED more Wren and Lei!!!

OH. MY. GOD. This cover is absolutely stunning and I am 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
I don't love it *quite* as much as the first cover, but at the same time it is GORGEOUS and I CANNOT STOP STARING AT IT.
Productivity? What is that? Why bother doing anything responsible when I can just stare at this cover all day long instead?
This book may not have a release date, cover, or title yet, but it's sure as hell one of my most anticipated releases regardles/> ...more
Like with the first book I had a feeling that this was somewhat unoriginal. It had some clear The Hunger Games vibes - girl becomes figurehead for resistance, girl gets a (strange) 'codename', girl doubts whether resistance is actually better than established ruling faction. Also, it had some world-building problems. Still, I enjoyed the characters, the overall direction of the story and the LGBT representation.

anyways :) the heavens looked down favorably upon me and the publicist decided to give me a physical arc of this (after I wrote a five body paragraph essay in my review request)
Note: This review contains spoilers for Girls of Paper and Fire. You can find The Nerd Daily’s review for it here.
When I finished Girls of Paper and Fire, I thought it a beautifully written book set in a fabulously intricate fantasy world whose plot had a few things that bothered me. My consensus: a good book that I’d definitely recommend but not necessarily rave about.
Then it kept intruding into my thoughts.
Although I admittedly didn’t love this as much as book one (which is unsurprising, considering how much I loved book one. Although I do worry this somewhat fell to ‘middle book’ book syndrome, as I was a tad underwhelmed) I still thoroughly enjoyed it and am ridiculously excited to see how this trilogy is going to conclude. I’m just devastated I’m going have to ...more
*single tear* Last year, Girls of Paper and Fire came out. This year, I was lucky enough to have my request for a Girls of Storm and Shadow ARC granted by the publisher! I was super excited to receive this in the mail, so thank you Little, Brown and Co. for sending GOSAS to me.
If I was lukewarm about GOPAF, I am pleasantly REELING from GOSAS. Natasha pretty much gave me everything I asked for at the end of GOPAF in GOSAS. Color me impressed!

"Oh, honey, that was.. we didn't like that at all."
I'm not as disappointed about this as I might have been had I actually liked book one to begin with. But I did hope the story, or plot, would transition into interesting avenues, or at least properly process trauma and/or grief. And it didn't. I feel like little to nothing actually even happened in this/>"Oh, ...more
★★★★★ 4.75 stars
Picking up Lei and Wren's adventures where Girls of Paper and Fire left off, Girls of Storm and Shadow is a bold piece of brilliant storytelling. It is a tale of political warring, with shifting alliances, intrigue, complex dynamics in an empire in turmoil and the heart-wrenching choices the characters are forced to make and paths they have to travel as a result. ...more
While this is a young adult fantasy series again I must stress these should be for the more mature audience. There are several things included in the series that deserve a bit of w ...more
WHY DID SO MANY OF THE THINGS HAPPEN IN THIS?!
I can’t believe I’ve got an Arc for this! I know what my first book of October is going to be :))
Not long ago, I was a girl of paper and fire. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let a little bit of snow smother those flames.
Thank you so much to Natasha Ngan for an autographed ARC at BookCon!
Also, a shoutout to Raena, the librarian who runs the monthly YA book club at my local library who gave me her ARC of GoPaF when she heard I had an ARC of this one so I'd have a matching set, Angel bless her.

GOD I'M SO GLAD THIS IS OVER
this series is so tiring and boring and stupid and pointless...this book had NO PLOT. I just read 400 pages...and I'm like "that's it? that's the book?" because it was so STUPID. an entire book of lei
literally, point out ONE thing they accomplished in this novel and i will be surprised. they did little things, like finding allies, but the entire book was people just keeping secrets, and action scenes that lasted way too lonstarsGOD ...more
And now we have a whole world to set ablaze."
OH BOY. I thought the first book gave me everything I needed with wholesome queer girls together in an amazing fantasy story?
We forget what else gets me goin'.
MORALLY GREY BADASS FEMALE CHARACTERS.
And this book is full of them.
I don't want to say too much about the specifics of this, because well, spoilers, but oh boy, do I love a good morally-grey/>MORALLYworld ...more
