These Violent Delights is one of my most anticipated reads of November 2020, and i have been hearing such awesome praise! If you don’t know what These Violent Delights is, it’s an ownvoices 1920’s Shanghai with a Romeo and Juliet retelling with rival gangs 🔪🔪. I found this tag

Juliette Cai – favourite fierce, bloodthirsty heroine
Kyoshi just wants revenge, and she is bloodthirsty and fierce when it came to the man that betrayed her and killed her friends.
Roma Montagov – favourite soft boi
Malik is just so precious. I love him so much, and needs all the protection he needs from the author and in book 2.
The Scarlet Gang – a popular book you just couldn’t get into
Oh boy, this is going to be unpopular. I do not get the hype around City of Brass. There was nothing amazing about it, and for basically all throughout the book it dragged. I had no interest in the characters and I just gave it 3 stars because it was decent.
The White Flowers – your favourite underrated read
Maya is good and it’s one of my favorite book. Less than 500 ratings.
Shanghai – favourite book set somewhere far away from where you are
WHTF is set in ancient Arabia so that is far away from both time(ish) and the land.
Monstrous – book featuring a monster/monstrous character
This book has tons of monsters in it, and so much Navajo folklore in it.
The Madness – a book that you would choose to keep you company during quarantine
I’ve been quarantining for 7 months technically, but I have 2 more extra weeks of Quarantining so AEITA is keeping me company 🙂
Kathleen – your favourite book featuring political intrigue
So much politics are involved and i love it.
Benedikt and Marshall – a ship you wish would get together *just kiss*
This book is so cute and adorable. And it takes them quite a bit to kiss.
Dorogaya – a book that makes you weak in the knees
Even though it’s not exactly a full on rom-com with it tackling a discussion about loads of things, it’s so cute and makes me fall on my knees.
Ripped Out Throat – a cliffhanger that made you want to rip out your own throat
This book isn’t so bad, but that ending-I need to start book 3 immediately.
