Review: I’ll Be the One

Review: I’ll Be the One

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Skye Shin takes a chance by auditioning in a US K-pop music competition where contestants must compete against each other to impress the judges in a bid to win an opportunity to train in a South Korean music company. She’s up against hundreds of hopeful youths who are aiming to please the crowds, and she nails her audition, despite facing comments about her weight from the judges. But she has her sights set on success and no one, not even her overbearing mother and a growing crush on her competition, can stop her.

I had very high expectations for I’ll Be the One, and it’s so frustrating when you read a book that has so much potential, but it fails immensely in its execution. Skye is a young teen who has faced continuously comments about her weight, from passerby’s and their wandering eyes to her mother, who never fails to make at least one comment about her daughter’s body. She has grown quite the thick skin which makes her audition for a rising K-pop star competition go viral when she stands up to the judgemental comments about her body. Suddenly, everyone wants to know who she is and the comments come flooding in. Her mother wants her to quit, but Skye can’t give up the opportunity this win could give her. A chance to live in South Korea while training to be a potential K-pop star. That doesn’t help that Skye also has a crush on a fellow competitor, Henry Cho, who comes from a chaebol family (business conglomerate) and is notoriously known for his social media presence.

I’ll Be the One‘s greatest strength was the conversation about body-shaming and Skye’s journey as she navigates her life as a fat girl.  Even though it isn’t own-voices, it was the part that stuck out the most to me and felt the most realistic. My own body isn’t that far off from Skye, and it truly felt like I was looking through my own eyes in some moments. I’m not Korean, but there is a similarity in Asian cultures about body types. My heart ached for Skye as she tries to prove her worth to her own mother. The latter who brushes everything off and continues to force very harmful ideals to her daughter, and does not take into account her feelings and thoughts in the entire process. I also really loved Skye as a character.

Okay, and here comes the rest of it. A lot of the book is about Skye’s internal struggle as she faces fatphobic comments about her body, and I wish the rest of the novel also stood as firm as those elements. Everything else about this book just felt flat. I found the writing style to be so weak, close to the point where I almost didn’t enjoy the book anymore. The dialogue felt so bulky that it read as unrealistic at some points. Some characters were terrific, especially Skye’s little group of friends that she makes in the competition were so sweet. You get some brilliant characters that are well thought out, and then others feel one-dimensional, and it was quite jarring to read. The romance for me was a miss, there was no build-up between the two, and it all felt forced for the sake of the plot. At one point, they would’ve been better off as close friends. There’s a lot of moments where we’re told how to feel rather than showing it play out, and it makes the story progression feel too easy.

The thing about I’ll Be the One is that I can see what the author was trying to create her, and I was so ready to praise this book hard from the very beginning. Still, it lacked in small areas that, overall, impacted my reading experience. I understand this review feels so negative, but I do believe in this book. And I would recommend it to anyone interested in the summary because it was still a fun book to read. It’s one of those books where you really have to take into account your own reading taste. Because I thought I would enjoy this, and while I did somewhat enjoy it, it still lacked in certain aspects. I don’t know if this book will continue to be a series in the future. And I’m not sure if I would be ready to follow Skye’s story in the future.

Review: How It All Blew Up

Review: How It All Blew Up

Rating: 3 out of 5.

*I received a copy via the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book.*

After fear of being outed by a classmate, Amir Azadi runs away and finds sanctuary in Italy. And when in Rome, right? Homeless and alone, Amir finds an unlikely community in Italy and learns to rediscover himself, all parts of him. But on his way home, after an incident on a plane, he’s forced to recount his days and tell his story in front of an interrogation room. All while his family are in another room telling theirs.

As a reader who is very neutral towards contemporary stories, How It All Blew Up was surprising and super refreshing. I liked it; it was something different. The story follows Amir as he recalls his entire journey to and from Italy to airport security. His family were flagged after the flight and separated so the staff could understand what was happening. Amir is an Iranian-American teenager who was moments away from graduation when a classmate threatens to out him to his Muslim family. For a while, Amir is able to buy his silence. Still, it all becomes too much on the day of graduation and, instead of heading to school, he makes his way to the airport and jumps on the first flight out of there. There he makes the decision to go to Italy and is quickly introduced to a community of people who help young Amir as he struggles to let go of his past.

I feel like the bare bones of this novel is extremely good. A story about a boy who doesn’t know what he wants just yet meets a crew of people who are willing to help and learns to understand himself in the process. I just feel like the execution of it was entirely rushed. I have to admit I was entirely hooked from the very beginning. Still, as Amir makes his roots in Italy, the story seems to lose all its interest. If you’re a reader who can suspend enough belief, this story can be magical and thrilling. But I just couldn’t engage with the story, and it began to feel very under-developed very quickly. Despite never having step foot in Italy before the novel, Amir can navigate Italian society quite quickly thanks to his new friends who help him become more comfortable with himself. The age gap between Amir and his friends was a little unsettling. At first, I didn’t think much of it, mainly because they are introduced as essential figures in Amir’s life who help him come to terms with his sexuality. I really found them all sweet in the beginning, giving Amir much-needed stability. Slowly, he realises he’s been looking through rose-tinted glasses, and his perfect friends aren’t as perfect as he’s built them up to be. I feel like the age gap between Amir, and his friends should’ve been acknowledged more, especially since two of them make a move on him when he’s only just turned eighteen.

What the synopsis doesn’t tell you is that the book is also told from other perspectives, mainly Amir’s sister. She is desperately trying to find her brother with quick scenes from his parent’s views. This gave them a lot more depth and understanding. I actually really liked the pacing between Amir’s chapters with the ones of him family as they all tell their part of the story, piecing together and leading to the moment where it all, essentially, blew up. That part was quite fun. I wasn’t too keen on the idea of the story being told in the middle of an interrogation mostly. I guess for the sake of the story, it added a dramatic flair, but I wonder if there was another way of doing it.

I wasn’t anticipating for this review to come out so negative. I quite enjoyed Amir’s story at the beginning. How It All Blew Up was uplifting and adventurous. I was rooting for a better life for Amir. It’s a shame this story was lacking a lot in terms of pacing and characterisation because the plot was so good that I was disappointed that the rest didn’t hold up.

Review: The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

Review: The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

Rating: 3 out of 5.

*I received a copy via the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book.*

When aboard the ship and amongst the crew that saved her life, Flora becomes Florian, a former street urchin turned crew hand who is desperately trying to make a life for herself and her brother. But her voyage takes a turn when the captain decides to sell their unsuspecting passengers into slavery and assigns Flora as the guard to young Evelyn. Unaware of the captain’s plan, Evelyn believes she is en route to an arranged marriage and doesn’t anticipate the impact of meeting Florian. Together, they must work to fight for their own freedom without losing themselves to the depths of the sea.

The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea was rather interesting. It was quite a punchy, fast-paced read of two young adults desperate to do the right thing. I did come into reading this with very high expectations, and while a lot of them were met, I wasn’t exactly all too blown away with this book. But I still enjoyed this story. I consider it a solid and entertaining debut.

What I loved most about this book was the world. I believe it’s the book’s strongest point. At the time of writing this review, the author has stated it is currently a stand-alone, but I would be interested in seeing what else the author has to offer from this world. Even if we don’t continue Flora and Evelyn’s story, the brickwork that the author has laid down here has SO much potential. I love how dark this book was, and I wasn’t expecting it, so it came as an exciting surprise. I truly loved how the author uses the Sea as this dark mother nature figure who is wholly vengeful and protective over its inhabitants. This comes in the form of a mermaid who Florian and Evelyn work to save as the crew members terrorise the mermaid for its mind-altering blood. Florian then encounters witches and finds themselves delving deep into witchcraft in order to protect themselves. There is an excellent commentary on the impact of colonialism and imperialism. Flora strives to be free from imperialist forces and wishes to live without fear of capture alongside her brother. We are also introduced to side-characters who bring much-needed depth to where I think Flora and Evelyn fail to give due to their limiting world-view, this includes a fellow crewmate, which I would love to read more about, what we’re given about him is so intriguing, even a short story to delve into his past would be enough.

The story is fun, and the characters were engaging to read about. And while I did speed through this book, the pacing in this book is a little off, as it is split into three sections. Some moments are rushed through while other areas are given time, which I don’t think it really needed. What didn’t work for me in this story was the relationship between Florian and Evelyn, more specifically, their romance. This book is dependent on them falling in love, but it falls rather flat, which is why I had decided to rate this book much lower than I wanted. The duo meet quite late in the book, and coupled with the weird pacing, the impact of their relationship didn’t feel right or even believable because it’s all based on a handful of short conversations between the two and the rest of the development occurred off-page and told to readers in between chapters. I really liked Flora, they were such an interesting character, and I was genuinely rooting for them and their dream for a better life. Their relationship with their brother was so good, and it’s such a shame, we don’t get to delve deeper into it. Because of the length of this book, it meant so much is introduced and then discarded so the story can continue, and I left sorely disappointed that the narrative just doesn’t return to something that is set up to be necessary. The lack of tension is what led the stakes and story feeling sorely under-developed and lacklustre.

Overall, The Mermaid, The Witch and The Sea was an interesting read. I feel like this story has a lot of potential in its world and characters. I still enjoyed it for what its worth but I really wished we had more time which would’ve made the story feel more fluid and move more realistically. As I mentioned before, the world-building is a shining point, which is why I would recommend and I would definitely pick up any future novels set in this universe because I don’t think it was fully utilised in this book.

Series Review: Shatter Me (Updated!)

Series Review: Shatter Me (Updated!)

Much of this post is copied from my previous series review of Shatter Me from 2018, but before the release of Defy Me and Imagine Me, so I chucked in my thoughts on the final two at the end of the older series review. So, apologies if it all sounds a little familiar. I was initially going to write separate reviews for each book in the Shatter Me series. But I decided that it was going to work much better as one big post about the series. I should warn that this post is spoiler heavy and if you haven’t read it yet and want to read it without spoilers, ignore this. This is less a review, but more of my own rambling of thoughts on each book. Will it make sense? Probably, not. Am I still writing this? Yes.

Shatter Me

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Shatter Me is the worst book of the series. If hadn’t borrowed the entire series from the library already, I would’ve dropped the set the second I finished the last page. But I follow Tahereh Mafi on social media, and I really enjoy her personality so I kind of held onto this series, hoping I would somewhat enjoy these books. This is very much a romance novel with a hint of dystopia. It felt like the story forgets it’s in a dystopian setting where the world is falling apart and then picks itself up every now and then.

I had so many issues with Adam and Warner. I hate that we’re supposed to ship Juliette with both when I just didn’t like any of them. They both think they’re so entitled to Juliette and I was so almost just skipping the pages (and nearly the entire book) when they both spoke. As a villain, I liked Warner. He works as a creepy villain, he works as this incredibly evil guy, but the second he becomes the love interest, I was angry. As a villain, he is brilliant but whatever romantic connection he has with Juliette is just lost on me. I was actually very disappointed because I really wanted to see what everyone was swooning about but I didn’t see it.

I was really disappointed by the ending. Mainly because what’s set up there is what I was expecting to have happened much closer to the beginning of the novel. Here is where the plot picks up and dives itself into dystopia. I understand the addictiveness of Shatter Me, but this was so overrated. Not enough worldbuilding or introduction to the story makes this series worth the hype it’s given. Even the writing was too much. The strikes and messiness were fine but reading it also felt over the top.

Unravel Me

It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from. She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.

The only thing I got from Unravel Me was that I actually can’t stand the romance between Juliette and Warner/Adam. We’re introduced to some serious shit in this series but the narrative doesn’t move on from Juliette feeling sorry for herself because she can’t have the guy she wants. The contrast is so jarring. Tahereh Mafi is such a great writer and I can see it come though in this series, it’s the reason why I’m still reading because she writes in a way that is so damn addicting. But the plot is just… everywhere. Whatever appealing qualities that Adam had in book one literally gets stripped away and pushed onto Warner. Still, Team Neither because Juliette is literally better off without a romantic partner. Kenji, you absolute series saver. Even when I didn’t like him, his logic and him being the only one who had any sense and helped Juliette more than the other two did. Juliette really only grows as a character when the other boys aren’t even near her. Regarding plot, not much happens, there’s like 4/5 crucial moments, but even then a lot of this book is stretched way too much. Again, 97% romance and then the 3%,: the series remembers that something is supposed to happen.

Ignite Me

With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

Ignite Me was my favourite book out of the original trilogy. Here Juliette really grows and shines on her own. Still Warner and Adam really get on my nerve. They’re all in the middle of a crisis like their feelings can take a step back for now when their lives are still at stake. I really enjoyed the lead up to them raising their army to fight back at the Reestablishment. I just wished that took a more significant chunk of the book rather than Juliette and the boys. Not a huge fan of how obviously Tahereh Mafi changed everything evil Warner did previously to now fit his new angel-like image. Still a prick in my mind. Adam is an even bigger fool in this series. It’s like Tahereh Mafi literally did everything she could to get you to despise Adam, and it worked. Juliette grows up a lot in this book, but Adam is actual trash. Like if I were forced to choose, I would be Team Warner, and that’s because I had no other choice. But I didn’t like that Juliette thought it was okay for her to tell Warner that he’s related to Adam. She tries to force Adam, and while Warner had a right know, Juliette had no right to decide when that happened and push it. That ending was good but way too fast. Like all that prep and then everything is quickly wrapped with no reflection as to what comes next? It just felt cheap, and if Restore Me wasn’t announced, this series would’ve been so disappointing.

Restore Me

Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

I thank whatever chain of events that led to Tahereh Mafi deciding to continue the series with three more books because Restore Me, for me, saved the entire series. I’m not even joking, if she had left the series after Ignite Me, review as this whole would’ve been so cynical that I wouldn’t also be sure if I should post it. Like this is what I expected from reading all those reviews from Book One. All that hype and this what I expected the outcome to be.

The world building for once is remembered and actually talked about. The world makes a bit more sense, and we can finally see the world we’re introduced to three books ago. Adam/ Warner/ James finally realising they’re family now and actually beginning to form a relationship was great to read. Restore Me was very much character driven and a much better improvement to the other three books. The last quarter was actually decent, and while the reveal was sort of obvious, there was still the shock. Here I was thinking Adam couldn’t get worse but he has become the biggest “guy who think’s he’s great, gets rejected and now he hates everything.” Like the whole fierce, protective Adam who would anything to save his brother from Shatter Me is slowly fading and it’s a shame. This book was such a great improvement.

Juliette here really gets on my nerve. She’s Supreme Commander but lacks the skills actually to deserve that title. And whenever someone points out that maybe Warner, whose father was the past Supreme Commander, has experience in the role, and has better connections with the other sectors, should help her, she immediately becomes so damn bitter and bratty and complaining that the Supreme Commander role is HER job. And everyone’s like ‘yeah we know, but Warner can help!’ and she refuses to see past that. Like she knows she lacks the experience after being locked away but still does nothing that has any value. After three books, you would expect this behaviour in Shatter Me, not here, in book four.

I still have some hope for this series. I felt like I’ve invested too much time NOT to see it through to the end. I just really hope whatever excitement I had for Restore Me continues onto the remaining series. Please don’t let this be a fluke.

To end: Nazeera Ibrahim, I love you.

That’s all.

Defy Me

Juliette’s short tenure as the supreme commander of North America has been an utter disaster. When the children of the other world leaders show up on her doorstep, she wants nothing more than to turn to Warner for support and guidance. But he shatters her heart when he reveals that he’s been keeping secrets about her family and her identity from her—secrets that change everything. Juliette is devastated, and the darkness that’s always dwelled within her threatens to consume her. An explosive encounter with unexpected visitors might be enough to push her over the edge.

I completely forgot I actually gave Defy Me a full review so here’s a snippet from there:

A lot of people love this, and a lot of people hate this. As a reader who despised the original trilogy, my expectations for these new books were extremely low, but I was fairly impressed by Restore Me and I could say the same things for Defy Me: entertaining yet at the same time, so, so disappointed. In term of story, there’s not much to unpack. Juliette discovers the truth behind her family, her parents and sister, and it is heartbreaking. Hearing about her sister and the truth behind her past was a standout moment, especially in a powerful scene between the sisters at the end. On the other end, we follow Warner and Kenji as they scramble to pick the movement back up after Juliette’s sudden disappearance. Memories of certain characters are restored and suddenly, they all don’t know what’s happening. I really enjoyed Restore Me, but Defy Me felt like it’s filler counterpart.

Imagine Me

Now that Ella knows who Juliette is and what she was created for, things have only become more complicated. As she struggles to understand the past that haunts her and looks to a future more uncertain than ever, the lines between right and wrong—between Ella and Juliette—blur. And with old enemies looming, her destiny may not be her own to control. The day of reckoning for the Reestablishment is coming. But she may not get to choose what side she fights on.

I know I’ve shown that I don’t have much love for this series. But it was quite a strong ending. I found it quite thrilling and a somewhat decent ending for the series. Did I understand what was happening? No. Did I enjoy? Strangely, yes. I can’t even describe how odd this finale was, but my reaction was much better than Ignite Me. I feel like Shatter Me is a cult favourite amongst the YA community and I’m glad I gave this series a chance and I didn’t just let this book fall off my radar. Judging from the more popular reviews of this series, everyone hated the stylistic choice and story narrative, but I think it was one of the better parts of the novel. Especially, since I read the series one after the other, and didn’t have that huge gap to wait like everyone else did. I enjoyed reading the development of Juliette’s journey through this series. I might be in the lesser side where I enjoyed the newer trilogy much better than the original trilogy.

Content warnings for the entire series, most apply to all four books: PTSD, anxiety, depression, suicide mentions, ableism, mention of past abuse, alcohol and medical abuse, racism, gun violence and unchallenged transphobia (restore me)

Review: The Henna Wars

Review: The Henna Wars

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Nishat becomes obsessed with winning her school’s business competition, but everything isn’t as smooth sailing as she thought it would be when her old school friend Flávia walks back into her life. Nishat is crushing hard but can’t get distracted. That is until Flávia also decides to do a henna business, and it comes to a heated discussion of cultural appropriation. After her parents disregard her coming out, this competition is everything to Nishat, and she can’t stand to lost anything now. 

This one’s a hard one to review because I’m struggling a little to put my thoughts into coherent words. It was a super adorable book to read. I truly wanted to love this. But The Henna War was not the book for me. I was not particularly blown away in my reading experience. My first thoughts when I finished this book was: is that it?

Nishat is our main protagonist, and I wish I could’ve loved her more. Nishat is one of a kind. I really loved her unapologetic attitude and how she is very adamant in being herself, loving herself, regardless of what anyone else says. She is very proud of her culture (hey, fellow Bengali) and in her situation, she is remarkably strong, standing up for herself when no one else will. Her younger sister is adorable, and I really enjoyed the great sibling bond between them. Nishat also has her school friends, who she ends up splitting with mid-novel due to clash of interest over their business ideas. Her parents are traditional, and it was heart-breaking to see them become so distant to their own child over their sexuality. With her conflict with the parents simmering in the background, it doesn’t help that Nishat also gets a crush on Flávia. That crush is almost squashed when Flávia decides to a henna business, and Nishat is devastated at her blatant disregard for her culture. And then on top of that, Flávia’s cousin is Chyna, one of the school’s biggest bullies who has been continuously dropping racist rumours about Nishat for years. 

This book introduces a lot of things: Nishat’s decision to come out to her parents, meeting Flávia, discovering Flávia is also new to her school, Flavia using henna as a business idea. Flávia is also dealing with a lot of tension from her cousin’s family. On top of that, all is the central theme of cultural appropriation, which made this a book a great space to discuss such a topic. But I feel like it was all too much and nothing was given the space actually to be discussed. To call it rivals to lovers is a reach, Nishat’s friends were practically sidelined and then reintroduced at the end for the pivotal moment. Nishat has a terrible attitude where she expects everyone else to feel bad for her, but she refuses to extend the same opportunity to everyone else. There was a perfect moment where her sister calls her out on her petty behaviour, but I feel like it was all for nought as everything is brushed away in favour of a happy ever after ending. Nishat’s anger and disappointment in most moments were justified, but she never really seems to learn from any of the bad stuff she does. 

Overall, this review sounds weird because I was genuinely enjoying this book for the most part, and I will offer this book to another reader because I can see it’s value. It’s super adorable for the most parts with an exciting cast of characters. The writing style was not to my liking. I just couldn’t get to grip with it, and it definitely affected my enjoyment of the books. As I said, I believe in this story, and I’ll give Adiba Jaigirdar credit for writing a story that I haven’t read anywhere else. But it wasn’t the book for me.
