What are you currently reading?

Wicked Fox by Kat Cho

A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.

Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.

But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process.

A secret santa on Twitter sent me this book in January- it was a wonderful surprise! A fun YA fantasy novel so far. There is a glossary in the back detailing the various Korean words and terms that pop up along the way. It’s a very helpful inclusion. Definitely recommend the physical format for this book.

What did you recently finish reading?

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
– Review to come. This was a cute contemporary/chick lit romance. It has a unique combination of light and aww-worthy moments and surprising depth of characterization. Something about the style made this less of a flowy read for me, could just be a subjective taste. Kind of hard to explain. Going to think carefully before writing up my review.

Credence by Penelope Douglas
– Review to come. Wow, this book. I had a -feeling- about it. Something about the description (heroine snowed in at a remote mountain village) and drama (there are quite a few shocking/polarizing aspects) and being in the mood for a romance. Everything came together and just clicked. I was transported by this book. Douglas’s writing is addictive pageturner status. There are so many things that happen in the story that will classify Credence as a dealbreaker for many readers though. Will be an interesting review to write. In short, I loved every second, but I think many won’t because the premise and little choices along the way were more than a little wild and out there.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
In an enthralling new historical novel from national bestselling author Kate Quinn, two women—a female spy recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during World War I and an unconventional American socialite searching for her cousin in 1947—are brought together in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption.

Twisted Pines by Lane Baker
Where have all the children gone? At rustic summer camp Mendocino Pines, that’s the question on everyone’s mind. First one, then two, then three campers vanish—only to reappear a short while later with no recollection of the missing time. The disappearances raise questions about the children’s safety, not to mention the camp’s time-honored reputation.

I Hope You Get This Message by Farah Naz Rishi
Seven days. Seven days. The Earth might end in seven days.

When news stations start reporting that Earth has been contacted by a planet named Alma, the world is abuzz with rumors that the alien entity is giving mankind only few days to live before they hit the kill switch on civilization.

I recently got over a nasty stomach virus and after much rest and relaxation, am feeling refreshed enough to read and blog more actively again! Thanks so much for reading this post. Have you finished any of the books mentioned or have plans of reading them? What you have finished reading lately? Always eager to hear your thoughts. ~ Kitty

  1. Good to know you’re doing better! You’ve got some great reads on here that I’m also really looking forward to. I was planning to read Credence last week but I decided to wait until my mood craves a dark romance. I’ve only tried one of Douglas’ books before and it wasn’t 100% my jam but I’m very curious about this one so I’m glad to hear you loved it! Keen to see what you’ll think of Wicked Fox, too! Happy reading 🙂

  2. Looking forward to your full thoughts on Wicked Fox. I also want to read I Hope You Get This Message but it might be a while before I can get to it so I’ll be looking forward to your thoughts on that as well. 🙂
