    1. My face feels as if it’s turning as red as kimchi.I’m out of breath, and my nerves are fried squid.What. The. Fuck. Just because a character is Asian, it doesn't mean she thinks like that. Never once in my life have I ever had a thought along the line of "Man, I feel as limp as a bowl of Pho noodles." No. Just NO.This review will be sprinkled with profanity, rage, and random insertions of hot Korean men gifs that serve no purpose whatsoever. Why? Because I can.It's going to be fucking long b [...]

    2. "AN ABSOLUTLY BREATH TAKING READ!"Uniqueats all there is to it.This book has been a plot line like I have never read before. The idea of Korean mythology just was an excellent choice that was perfectly executed by Christina! I am so excited to carry on with this series in the coming months.I highly recommend this to readers who love mythology RICK RIORDAN FANS HELLLLOOOOO THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU! I also want to give props to the amazing cover design of this WHOLE series! <3 In love.

    3. An amazing contemporary fantasy that explores the vast legends of Korea, this richly detailed novel kept me turning the pages well into the night. Jae Hwa starts off as a strong character and ends as a noble one, using both her brains and her brawn to win the day--she's exactly the kind of girl YA literature needs.

    4. To be fair really 1.5 stars. To see full review click on one of the following links:The BlogBooklikesDespite the fact that Asia is the world’s largest continent and that many of these countries play an important part in both the past and the present, YA tends to ignore them. I don’t know why. It’s not like any of the myths and legends that this part of the world has are any less interesting than its western counterparts. And for that matter, these countries do not lack hot men either.Unfor [...]

    5. Disclaimer: I'm Korean American. So I'll probably be harsher on this book because there's so few representation, and I expect authors to do their research properly before writing about someone outside their race. Did not finish. Got to page 150 and realized I couldn't read more. Pros: - Clearly researched well - Prose was good from what I could seeCons: - I do not like the main character, Jae. Specifically because she mentions how she wishes her bully would pick on other "immis" (short for immig [...]

    6. As usual I didn't pay anything for this book but instead received it for free. This time via the courtesy of the Kindle Firsts program. Despite that kindness I give my candid thoughts below.Firstly, this is a YA novel so the criteria I apply differ from those of a standard adult novel. The first thing I look at is whether I'd want my own children to read this book from a moral standpoint. Joyfully, I report that this book contains nothing really sexual in nature, unless you count some occasional [...]

    7. 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. In the novel you will find references to the amazing underground system in Seoul, the palaces,the KTX train,the coffee shops,the food and the vibrant atmosphere of the city. Besides you will also find a romantic love story and a kickass heroine who doesn't give up. Korean mythology is also skilfully depicted throughout the novel. This is Haechi, The Guardian of Seoul, [...]

    8. This was a really enjoyable read. The story is set in South Korea and involves the myths of this country, which is an element that made the book incredibly unique. I really enjoyed learning about a country that I was completely unfamiliar with, and Farley weaves the everyday life and mythos of this exotic land perfectly with the plot. The story is faced paced, and is a really enjoyable read. I would recommend this novel to anyone that loves YA, urban fantasy, or that wants to read a unique and f [...]

    9. Christina is one of my very talented CPs and I can't wait for you all to read GILDED. Such a fantastic novel. Make sure you click that "Want to Read" button!

    10. I've suspicion that if I would read this book I would end hating it for the same reasons I hate The Last Samurai. No, thanks.

    11. I’m not sure where this went wrong for me. I feel really ho hum about the whole story. I’m not sure if I just wasn’t into the Korean mythology or the characters or just the overall story but I never really connected with this. It took me an entire week to complete and if you know me you know that is absolutely unheard of. I actually only marked one line in the book, also unheard of for me. By comparison in the first 5 chapters of Cress I have 11 highlights.I’m completely socially incompe [...]

    12. Speechless.This book leaves me speechless. Such a new and unique story. Christina Farley is a fantastic writer with an amazing imagination. If you are looking for something new this is your solution. When I first got Gilded I was unsure because of never having read something like it, but being a lover of both fantasy and mythology I thought to try it. I was extremely surprised and in love with this book though and it even ignited a solid interest in Korean mythology. I cannot wait for the next b [...]

    13. I really liked the "idea" of Glided. Although, I wasn't expecting much from this. And if you noticed my low rating you can see that I didn't get much either.

    14. I received an ebook copy of this book through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.Gilded sounded great. Unfortunately it wasn't as good as it could have been. 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. Also, I don't know if it's just me but I don't get why the love interest wasn't an asian guy. Yes, the main character is going to an international school but I still don't get why the love i [...]

    15. This book This book is one of those books that at first your not sure if you like the book or not. But once you give it a hundred pages to read you will get hooked on the book. I love how the characters are build up in the story. The book gives me the feels at some certain point. Before I didn't know what this book was until I went to a festival and actually met this author. She was so nice to me Eventhough I was with her 24/7 which I feel bad for. Anyways when I read this book I felt like as if [...]

    16. Wow, 4.5! I realllllly loved this book! So unique from the other novels I've read. It was really interesting to learn about Korean culture and myths, something I've never even thought about! This book really makes me want to learn more. The only problem was the Korean words. Having taken Tae Kwon Do not to far back in my life, I've learned some Korean words, but when I didn't and it didn't explain what it means, it got me really confused. Other than that, AMAZING!

    17. Hey, another YA fantasy set in Korea! Maybe this one will be better than Prophecy Too bad we have to wait until March 2014 to find out!ಥ_ಥ

    18. I'm a mythology person. Someone just has to the say the word and I promise, I'll be there to side tackle them and beg them to tell me moreI learned some mythology from this, and it may be my fault due to the skimming I may have done, but I didn't get as much as I would have liked. What I did get a lot of was Asian references that I feel like people of Asian descent wouldn't necessarily use. And maybe they do, but my friends do not compare themselves to types of Asian food, just as I have never t [...]

    19. This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd I received an ecopy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review MY THOUGHTSThis was an enjoyable book. I didn't really have any problems with it, but it's not a new favorite. Still, it had a very unique premise and I liked it.Jae's father recently moved the two of them from LA and now she has to deal with living in a new country, go to a new school, and a grandfather who may hate turns. Well, things get worse when it turns [...]

    20. *I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I eyed this book a long time ago and ached to read it since then. Generally speaking, I'd say it worthed all the longing, after all.The Korean mythology stuff is truly intriguing, even though I would have this world to be further explored, as well as I would have liked to delve deeper into Korean culture as a whole -now, at least, I am more motivated to do it by myself. Despite the poor originality of the plo [...]

    21. Ancient mythology, descendant of a legendary princess, and forbidden romance. These three elements drew me to Gilded. But it didn't stop there. Once I started reading, the characters, (Jae, her mysterious and aloof grandfather, her best friend Michelle, her love interest Marc) the setting, and fantasy elements kept delivering. Christina is very knowledgeable on her Korean history. This helped her paint a realistic world for the reader. I felt like I was immersed in Seoul, South Korea with Jae— [...]

    22. 1.5 stars. I really wanted to like this book. The setting and its mythology--so unusual for your standard YA fantasy--should be enough to make this book stand out, but the lackluster characters and sloppy storytelling bring this book down.The author just takes for granted that we will care about these characters: 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 [...]

    23. I loved this book. The heroine, Jae Hwa, is strong and resourceful, and she's not afraid to throw down. But at the same time, she's respectful and good to those around her. She's a very complicated character who has to make some tough choices, and while she might not always make the "right" choice or even the "smart" choice, her motivations are entirely believable and sympathetic, and Jae Hwa's sheer determination keeps her committed and focused. Another thing I loved about this book is the nons [...]

    24. The only reason I got through it is because it wasn't too long and the mythology kept me going. Otherwise, I would have left it. Jae Hwa is justt very smart. At all. Anything someone tells her not to do, she does it. Her ideas are executed pretty badly. She constantly messes up. This is different from being flawed. A hero has flaws. Unfortunately, Jae Hwa's flaw is stupidity and that doesn't make for an interesting read. Also, the love interest is white. Which is fine if you wanna do an interrac [...]

    25. **I received this book for free from (Publisher) via (NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy, Korean Mythology*Rating* 3-3/5*My Thoughts*Gilded is the first installment in the Gilded trilogy by new to me author Christina Farley. Farley's main character is 16-year old Jae Hwa Lee a Korean-American who left LA for South Korea after her mother died. Jae Hwa is a girl who has a black belt in [...]

    26. This was fun! I actually really like the international school setting. Most of the Korean-Americans I know who've lived in Korea attended these types of schools. True, I don't know any non-Koreans who have, but I'd like to think there's a really awesome diverse student body. Aka I was okay with white boy love interest, haha. Moving along The book was a fun adventure romance with lots of Korean mythological characters. Read it if you like paranormal romance that's for a younger YA audience. More [...]

    27. "The souls of my ancestors tickle my nose, my chin, my ears, like butterflies released from a cage, skimming past me with kisses and blessings." This book rested at 4 stars because I enjoyed the rich imagery of the Korean folklore. Then the author hit her stride at the 80th percent mark and bounced the rating to 5 stars! Once the subplots fell away and the protagonist took charge, this plot soared!

    28. This story is wonderful on many levels: exotic setting, well-rounded, real characters, a fantasy adventure with a love story thrown in for good measure. Loved it.
