Wicked Fox by Kat Cho (ARC Review)

Kat Cho’s debut, Wicked Fox, was one of my most-anticipated releases of this year! I’ve actually been following along with the book’s journey on Twitter since last year and still remember when it was titled Gumiho instead of Wicked Fox! For those of you who don’t know, I am very very into kdramas (Korean dramas) and have posted about them on this blog even (although not in a while).

I won’t go into that story in this review, because I wrote a full review… Read More Star-Touched Stories by Roshani Chokshi (eARC Review)
