really liked it
bookshelves: lgbtqia-rep, fantasy, young-adult, read-in-2018, poc-rep, boys-love-boys, fiction

if you’re:
⚪️ a man
⚪️ a woman
🔘 tired of occupying a human form

and you’re looking for:
⚪️ a man
⚪️ a woman
🔘 a fun & unputdownable heist book with a multi ethnic group of rebels consisting of plus-size ace girls and bi boys teaming up, despite nigh-impossible odds, to achieve the unachievable, featuring also the most wholesome friends-to-lovers gay romance and the most nerve-wracking ending

Then you better SMASH that “want-to-read” button because this was FUCKING GREAT.

Asexuality means you literally do not feel sexual attraction. According to Google, the direct definition is "without sexual feelings or associations."
However, some aces might still be interested in HAVING sex — they just don't feel the same appeal, physically, that "the majority" (aka people who DO feel sexual attraction, aka most of the population) do.
Some asexuals ARE sex-repulsed (I am one of those said aces), but some others can have no opinion regarding sex, or some others may even like it. It all depends on the person. :)
Asexuality does not automatically mean you have a low libido! Asexuality and having a sex drive are different from one another.


Maia I was already excited about this book because it is Destiny Soria, and Iron Cast was great, but now it's even better!!!

SAME. Like...finding one of those things is hard enough but fat and ace? Impossible.
I just hope their asexuality isn't linked to their fatness.

they share the same tropes and are both diverse but in terms of plot and characterization, they’re nothing alike! both hella fun and enjoyable tho!


Chaima ✨ شيماء Bethany wrote: "Ace girls and bi boys? Fucking yes!!! Gimme now gimme now!"

I literally SCREAMED like they actually use the terms “asexual” and “bisexual”.....explicitly.....on the page......WE STAN


Vanessa Jup. Loved that one. Would also add that the main female character is fairly unsympathetic BUT in a very well written way! I loved that.
