Review: Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim

I’ve missed writing full-length reviews. I cannot believe that the last one I wrote was nearly a month ago. I blame mini-reviews and how addicting they are. 

But fortunately, I’m back with my review of Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim, which I enjoyed immensely, much more than I was expecting to. Come for the Chinese culture and Maia’s Mulan-esque character arc, stay for the sizzling romance and the quest.

It’s the end of August. It’s the end of August. It is THE END of AUGUST. 😱😱😱

It could be because of the sin for being too precious for this world. Or it could be because there’s nobody else except me in their life willing to show them love and support. (I’m not crying, you are.)

Something you’ll discover about me is that I like to steal random book tags from the Internet and do them eons after they first hit the blogosphere. I mean, isn’t that what the Internet is for? (The answer is yes.)

So today, I’ll be doing the 20 Questions Book Tag, created by Buydebook at Goodreads. Here I go!
