Three weeks. Three books. One winner.
Just kidding. All three books were winners to me although I have a clear favourite.
BAREFOOT SEOULS is the third book I’ve read in the MY KOREAN CRUSH series. This was a cute book with a lot going for it (K-pop love interest!) but there were also a few minor issues which dropped the rating down a star for me. FAT GIRL ON A PLANE was a great book with an interesting format. I found the MC a bit unlikeable but compelling enough to root for throughout the book.
My fave was PRIDE by Ibi Zoboi. This is a modern Pride & Prejudice retelling and I loved the characters, loved the setting, loved the diversity of this retelling. It was everything I wanted it to be and definitely my fave YA P&P retelling.
I’m currently reading WASHINGTON BLACK, one of the Giller Prize nominated books, and I have mixed feelings about it. But more on that when I finish…
