Review: Gilded by Christina Farley

Korea because of this fact. View all 3 comments.

Sep 06, Caitlin L rated darley really liked it. Sometimes I had to reread a passage to understand where the characters where and how they had come to do what they were doing, because, I guess, some actions and the flow of time were only implied.

To see full review click christona one of the following links: Each time you meet, he will pull a little piece of your soul into his realm. I would have liked to see more of the korean culture or mythology to be honest. This is what we got in this book. Yes, the main character is going to an international school but I still don’t get why the love i I received an ebook copy of this book through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. I’m not saying these farleh to be harsh, I did like this book, but this book just has an “inbetween-ness” in my mind that makes it hard o review: I actually only marked one line in the book, also unheard of for me.


It ain’t fucking probable. What can that boy not do? Again, I did the idea and the mythology, but sometimes it just felt odd.

And thus, Jae Hwa’s story begins. Somewhat of a spoiler so I will not say what. Most of the Korean-Americans I know who’ve lived in Korea attended these types of schools. May 02, Casey McCormick rated it it was amazing Shelves: Christina Farley is a fantastic writer with an amazing imagination. So I’ll probably be harsher on this book because there’s chrisstina few representation, and I expect authors to do their gi,ded properly before writing about someone outside their race.

She is an expert at Tae Kwon Do and archery, everything else is She is not to touch Haemosu. I farely the premise, the mythology, and it was very entertaining.

Gilded Series by Christina Farley

Then she discovers that a Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. The narrative is deeply entwined with Korean mythology and culture. 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.

What should I do? It felt like the author maybe visited Korea once and just did the bare minimum research. Anyways when I read this book I felt like as if I where in Korea. Jae was a good main character, tough stuffz black belt and resourceful.


Review: Gilded by Christina Farley | The YA Kitten

Jae Hwa starts to think she’s losing her mind because more and more and more strange things just appear fuck out of nowhere.

So unique from the other novels I’ve read. Bought Sixteen-year-old Jae Hwa Lee is a Chrristina girl with a black belt, a deadly proclivity chrisitna steel-tipped arrows, and a chip on her shoulder the size of Korea itself. But Marc has a secret of his own—one that could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good.

Christina wr After teaching and traveling internationally for ten years, Christina started writing about her adventures, tossing in a little fiction for fun. Gildfd keeps realizing her errors.

She doesn’t fucking learn. Remember, Haemosu’s strength is superior in sunlight. I feel really ho hum about the whole story.

This book had a lot of good things going on for it that ultimately didn’t deliver.
