Look at this book. It should be noted that this is pretty standard youth escapism fiction though so the usual defiance of parental authority is in evidence. We get to see the shopping district of Myeongdong. View all 10 comments. The heroine, Jae Hwa, is strong and resourceful, and she’s not afraid to throw down.

Review: Gilded by Christina Farley | The YA Kitten
I tarley born farle Vietnam, but my sister was born here, as are many of my friends. This book has been a plot line like I have never read before. 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.
The culture feels authentic. The only problem was the Korean words. The gilced book felt rushed and the characters could have used some more development. The author just takes for granted that we will care about these characters: This is what we got in this book. I liked the premise, the mythology, and it was very entertaining. I need to just spam authors with links to Kdrama.
Anyways when I read this book I felt like as if I where in Korea. I stop midstride at his words.
Issues aside, Gilded is a quick read. Still, it had a very unique premise and I liked it. I would recommend this novel to anyone that loves YA, urban fantasy, or that wants to read a unique and fun story that introduces the mythos of a fascinating country. I am unsure as to if Farley had addressed this herself, but I am looking forward to seeing how it continues and what Jae Hwa does next.
May 28, kceyagi rated it it was ok. Sixteen-year-old Jae Hwa Lee is a Korean-American girl with a black belt, a deadly proclivity with steel-tipped arrows, and a chip on her shoulder the size of Korea itself.
Her father has christjna, thanks to his job, and she is now attending an international school in Seoul, where she is a fish out of water. I highly recommend this to readers who love mythology.
Lists with This Book. You can see all of eternity if you happened to look up his ass. Sep 14, M. Jae Hwa is a girl who has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and is extremely proficient with a bow and arrow. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the farleu of my review.
Gilded by Christina Farley Series: I felt like I was immersed in Seoul, South Korea with Jae—wh Ancient mythology, descendant of a legendary princess, and forbidden romance. Jan 26, Meredith rated it it was amazing.
Review: Gilded by Christina Farley
If this is a ho hum review it is probably because that is how the entire book felt for me. True, I don’t know any non-Koreans who have, but I’d like to think there’s a really awesome diverse student body. Like a jilted suitor, Haemosu waits, angry. Apr 06, Natalie Never trust a duck rated it it was ok Shelves: This book takes place in Korea. Yes, the main character is going to an international school but I still don’t get why the love interest had to have the “all American hero” look. She is stubborn and not in an entirely adorable way.
I actually only marked one line in the book, also unheard of for me. Had I cgristina time, I would look up all the Korean myths and binge binge biiiiiiiinge on them. A middle grade contemporary fantasy Scholastic Press.

She repeatedly makes the same fucking mistakes. But I never get it back. I wanted a cute Korean guy, ok? I swivel in a circle. Without Annette by Jane B.
