Issues aside, Gilded is a quick read. Again, in this case I would reply strongly to the affirmative. Oftentimes this book felt like a lot of other YA novels.

Okay, so there have been a few books published that take place in Asia or might have an Asian main character or hero, but does it happen often? Nothing remarkable or extremely original, but not bad either.

Gilded Series

She is not to go into the sunlight. But Marc has a secret of his own—one chriwtina could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good. Or fought him in our world. Besides writing, Christina loves traveling, running, driving too fast, and eating dark chocolate. Although, I wasn’t expecting much from this.

Review: Gilded by Christina Farley

Jae Hwa starts to think she’s losing her mind because more and more and more strange things just appear fuck out of nowhere. It felt like the author maybe visited Korea once and just did the bare minimum research. She doesn’t seem to take initiative on her own.


Princess Yuhwa fled the country. Jan 14, Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies rated it did not like it Shelves: So unique from the other novels I’ve read.

She’s a very complicated character who has to make some tough choices, and while she might not always make the “right” choice or even the “smart” choice, her motivations are entirely believable and sympathetic, and Jae Hwa’s sheer determination keeps her committed and focused.

I often receive books for review, but this does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. But, hands down, my favorite part of this book is the Korean mythology. If you are looking for something new this is your solution. Because he vanishes in a trick of the light. The atmosphere of Seoul feels real, but you don’t get much of it at all because this book takes place in an international school where everyone might as well be white.

Gilded (Gilded, #1) by Christina Farley

For one thing, the heroine was so infuriatingly stupid at times. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Then she discovers that a Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. Marc is the name. I cannot wait for the next b Speechless.

Yuhwa doesn’t want none of that shit. A mystical adventure about a pulls-no-punches princess and the power of her magical pen. Haemosu gets terribly jealous of suitors.

It wasn’t chrisrina bad book! Had I the time, Gillded would look up all chrisstina Korean myths and binge binge biiiiiiiinge on them.

Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers. You won’t regret it! Just to say, Jae, the main character, is fine; she gets into a lot of her trouble only because of her stubborness and her annoying tendency to skip the “think about it” phase before doing whatever thing, but in the end she’s fairly bearable.

Just not a fan of her attitude. There is not a single Korean boy in the book besides for the one-time mention of the motherfucking douche who spars with her in Tae Kwon Do class. Another thing I loved about this book is the nons I loved this book.

All he has to do is meet with her five times and then he can whisk her away into the spirit realm. For more information, click here.
