2022 Book Review: Girls of Paper and Fire

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

YA Fantasy, 2018 by Jimmy Patterson Books, 385 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Predictable. Of course this isn’t as big of a deal if it’s not a mystery book, but it’s still irritating. I wanted a little more shock and surprise.
  • Lot of short clipped sentences, which gave it a strange pace. 
  • Epilogue made me roll my eyes. I wanted a different ending. I liked the way it ended before that epilogue. 

What I Did Like:

  • Loved the MC. She’s relatable, loveable, and enthusiastic. I wanted only good things for this girl.
  • Excellent set up of exploring a group of girls literally a concubine for a king. It made a unique way to explore this fantasy world.
  • Good lead into book 2. The world is set, the story is started, and you love the characters. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fantasy fans who want to explore a world in a different way. 
  • LGBTQ+ allies and readers. 

My Rating: 4 stars

  • Good fantasy explored in an interesting way.
