In conversation with Sarah Suk, the author of Made In Korea

Kindly grab a box of tissues because this book is the definition of CUTE

I’m not even joking, the amount of serotonin I got from Made In Korea was unreal.

Made In Korea was one of my most anticipated releases for this year and after reading an early copy of it, I can proudly say that it is definitely in the top 10 for my favourite 2021 reads! Everything from the amazingly developed plot and characters to the cute and awkward romance, this book made me want more. I’ve written a more coherent review on Goodreads so if you are interested in my thoughts on this book, you can read them here! I also have a K-pop playlist that I made for Made In Korea which you can check out on Spotify here!

After I finished reading Made In Korea with my friend Katie and sending too many out of context screenshots to my IRLs, I knew I had to interview Sarah, because I simply couldn’t get enough of the book! A huge thank you to Sarah for doing this interview and without further ado, let’s get straight into it!

All about ARCs: How and where to get them + Some tips

I have an obsession with ARCs…!

I would be lying if I said that I don’t go on netgalley and edelweiss every single. There is something about getting approved for an ARC, being all excited about it and then that exact title sitting unread on your kindle for months.

Let’s be honest, ARCs are pretty cool! Being able to read a book months before it hits the shelves and then providing your opinion on it is not only a great experience for the readers anticipating the book but also helps the author get a head start.

We are only four months into 2021 and *checks spreadsheet* I already have 20 ARCs for books releasing throughout this year and one for a 2022 release which I am super grateful about! So, how do you acquire ARCs? What even are ARCs? Let’s take a deeper dive into these questions!

March 2021 Wrap-up// Yea Life Goes On~

Time definitely flies

School has been going on and I genuinely did not notice that it’s already April. Offline school isn’t as bad as I expected it to be. I am actually understanding stuff and it is fun to meet my friends everyday!

March was a LOT. I read a lot of great books and there were too many K-pop releases to count so without any further ado, let’s get straight into the post!

There has been a huge rise in hate crimes against Asians in America so please check out these resources and educate yourself. Consider donating if you can!

Blog Tour review: The Unbroken// A military fantasy with sapphics and colonialism

It is official, give me a book with colonialism and sapphics and I’ll instantly be on my knees.

Wonderful stories and book covers are flourishing in 2021, especially adult fantasies with yellow covers, sapphics and themes of colonialism which basically say “be gay and overthrow your empire”.

If the above keywords weren’t enough to make you add The Unbroken to your TBR, today I present to you a review of the book as part of it’s blog tour hosted by Caffeine Book Tours!

Recommending books based on K-pop songs (or maybe vice versa)

Welcome to me screaming about two of my most favourite things in the world!

It is after I change my blog’s name that I finally decide to talk about music here. Love that for me.

K-pop is something I’ve loved dearly for almost two years at this point. From initially getting into it after listening to BTS’ Boy With Luv in 2019 to listening to countless K-pop artists every single day, the music genre has inevitably become a huge part of my life. The thing about K-pop that I love is the overall relatable and catchy music and the wonderful storytelling through both music videos and lyrics which truly makes them different from other mainstream artists.

I started reading diversely in mid-2020 and have fallen in love with it ever since. Though I’ve been reading ever since I can remember, diverse books have had a huge impact on me because seeing myself and people from all around the world being represented in literature gives me nothing but joy.

So today I am going to mixing both these things and recommending some books based on K-pop songs (or I may be indirectly brainwashing you all to listen to K-pop, no one will ever know 😎)
