I don’t know, it just felt strange. It wasn’t anything overwhelmingly unique, but it was enough to keep me interested. View all 10 comments.
Look at this book. I read this book before,during and after a trip to South Korea and I highly recommend it to people who are visiting that country. She is an expert at Tae Kwon Do and archery, everything else is As another reviewer pointed out, the heroine jumps into the OCEAN armed with a bow and then, minutes later, worries about protecting the bow from water damage when boarding a canoe. But it didn’t stop there.
This is good clean stuff. Goodreads is just a registry of books.
The idea of Korean mythology just was an excellent choice that was perfectly executed by Christina! Anything someone tells her not to do, she does falrey. Mar 30, TimeyWimeyBooks rated it did not like it. But Marc has a secret of his own.
It turns out that Jae’s been wrong about a lot of things: This is Hotteoka sweet and delicious pancake she eats and I must say I liked.
You know how I know? Over and all this book is amazeballs please read this book! Christina writes fantasy for teens and children.
But I let him into my head. Feb 15, Shannon marked it as to-read Shelves: It had some excellent parts; the setting is wonderful, the mythology is beautiful, the Korean culture is excellent.
Review: Gilded by Christina Farley
I simply wanted an underrepresented group of people tofinallyget a chance to shine. Nothing remarkable or extremely original, but not bad either. Apr 06, Natalie Never trust a duck rated it it was ok Shelves: This is a platform in a Seoul subway station. Christina Farley, a former school teacher in Seoul, has written a compelling beginning to a saga that will appeal to many YA readers.
It’s quite full of stereotypes, like the insta-love, the “I love you” said after a couple of weeks and the female protagonist’s silly choices. Insanity by Susan Vaught. Apr 15, Denise rated it it was amazing.
Like a jilted suitor, Haemosu waits, angry.
Usually I love mythology intertwined with fantasy and this should have been up my alley with dragons, a spirit realm and elements of the Far East but falrey really grabbed a hold of me. Until you are no longer with us.
Review: Gilded by Christina Farley | The YA Kitten
You would be hard-pressed to find an extremely traditional Korean talking well about a Japanese, for instance. Jae was a good main character, tough stuffz black belt and resourceful. View all 3 comments.
