The Gilded Wolves Reviews
Six of Crows, you said?
Take my money, I said.
I started reading Gilded Wolves on 1/14/2019 and finished it on 2/24/2019. (Please disregard my reading date. I was having a major reading slump and got a bad cold so it shouldn’t decide whether I love this book or not by the date). This book is definitely an excellent read. I enjoy the humor between the characters. I like that bit of forbidden love, or just the characters forbidden themselves from it happening again even though both enjoyed each other’s company. I like their stolen looks and th ...more
I received this book for free from BookSparks as part of their YA Winter Reading Challenge.
I just want to preface this review by saying that I haven’t read Six of Crows, which everyone has been comparing this book to. Since I haven’t read it, I can’t speak as to how similar this book is to SOC. Personally, I got a tiny bit of an ACOTAR inner circle vibe.
I have to admit that I was pretty confused at the beginning of this book. There was a lot going on and I didn’t quite understand the forging a ...more
So good. So precious. So beautiful.
If you're wondering, yes, it is like Six of Crows with The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure sprinkled on top ( I bet you were wondering exactly that)
I loved this. A lot.
Here's a brief description of the characters:
Severin: The only similarity between him and Kaz is that they're both thieves and well the "leader" of the group. Severin is very VERY caring and he also laughs a lot(?) but he isn't as smart as Kaz. I still love him though.
Laila She dances a lot ...more
ARC provided by Wednesday Books via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts and review.
I really wanted to love this one. The premise and tone were right up my alley, and I just about combusted with excitement when I found out I was approved for an ARC.
The only thing I really liked was how diverse the main cast was. Half of the characters are PoC, and at least two are LGBT+. I've heard that one of the characters is on the autism spectrum, but I'm not familiar enough with autism to feel comfo ...more
After The Star-Touched Queen, Roshani Chokshi could write me a threatening letter in yellow crayon and I'd still be foaming at the mouth for more.

“Half of winning, my dear wallet, is simply looking victorious.”
🌟 This was one of my most anticipated books for the year and given how much I love Six of Crows, I thought I would love this one! My problem is that I wanted something as awesome as SoC and not another milder copy of that book.
🌟 I have been searching and asking and reading reviews since I started this and it looks readers are divided into two groups; one ...more
The setting is Paris, 1889, and the world is a strange and industrious place, run by Forgers and curators of fantastical items. Séverin is a treasure-hunter with a crew, and he’s looking to find the item he needs to be reinstated in his rightful place, to receive the inheritance taken unfairly from him—but the item will come at a cost, and he and his team will need to overcome many obstacles to retrieve it.
I’d been meaning to read Roshani Chokshi’s work for quite some time, and when I heard a ...more
