Book Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Girls of Paper and Fire has been on everyone’s lips ever since its publication was announced in 2018. As an  f/f romance set in an east Asian-inspired imperial court that deals with the trauma of rape and sexual assault, it got a lot of attention and hype from the YA book community. As excited as I was to read this book, I’m always wary of the hype that can surround new releases, and didn't pick it up until now. However, I’m so glad that I read it -- it's an beautifully written and powerful book.
