Gilded Series

Yeah, there’s a lot of romance in this book, but the romance isn’t so much a romance as it is a tool to save Jae Hwa’s ass almost every fucking time.

I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it. The main character goes to a fucking international school. The book gives me the feels at some certain point. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. And I know where the power box is. Jan 17, AO added it. As far romance, again it wasn’t anything new.

Review: Gilded by Christina Farley

Usually Gildde 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 nothing really grabbed a hold of me. Although, I wasn’t expecting much from this. What should I do? She gets defensive, instead of being sorry. Haemosu has been after the oldest daughter of each generation of her family, ever since her ancestor refused his marriage proposal.

What kind of The Last Samurai bullshit is this? The second question I look at is whether this book teach the reader anything. I give points to the author for trying and doing research, but no. Read it if you like paranormal romance that’s for a younger YA audience. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.


She is not to go into the sunlight. And maybe they do, but my friends do not compare themselves to types of Asian food, just as I have never t I’m a mythology person. Feb 21, Shelley rated it liked it Shelves: ONE Asian guy of her age in the book.

And maybe they do, but my friends do not compare themselves to types of Asian food, just as I have never thought about the similarities between me bruschetta. Highly recommended from a reviewer who almost always finds something to complain about. I would recommend this novel to anyone that loves YA, urban fantasy, or that wants to read a unique and f This was a really enjoyable read. The book felt rushed and I feel like little attention was paid to the details that could have made this book stand out more.

But Marc has a secret of his own. I cannot wait for the next book. Because I live right next to one in real life. So unique from the other novels I’ve read. Christina wr After teaching and traveling internationally for ten years, Christina started writing about her adventures, gikded in a little fiction for fun.

Despite the poor originality of the plot, the story was quite good and enjoyable. She is stubborn and not in an entirely adorable way. Another thing I loved about this yilded is the nonstop action from start to finish.

Sep 14, M. The action is fast-paced and moves along brilliantly and has enough complexity to keep the reader thinking. This helped her paint a realistic world for the reader.


The story line was intriguing. Can you think of the last time an Asian guy actually gets a girl in gulded movie? Whiter than white, green-eyed Marc.

I liked that it took place in South Korea and had a Korean main character but I also hate saying that because I don’t like saying I’m farleh someone threw in a character who wasn’t white, because I feel like race shouldn’t matter, but then I get it, that goes back to why people want more then just white main characters. Her beauty was legendary, all who saw her fell in love with her at first sight. These three elements drew me to Gilded.

I liked this part of her. The plot is great, but still nothing that overall wowed me. Return to Book Page. You do not come into a culture and expect to appropriate it.

Marc is “hot,” we’re immediately told, so we know who the love interest is; Michelle is SUCH a great best friend that the heroine has only known for a few months ; and Jae Hwa herself just seems to punch things and other people!
