IT’S UP. IT’S FINALLY UP.
Y’all. I’ve been meaning to review The Shadowglass FOR FREAKING EVER. I have no excuse for being so late to the party. None. Zip. Zilch. The daeva may now devour me and sacrifice me at an altar to Tea Pahlavi.
But! Here is my (slightly self-centered) present in celebration of this amazing book’s publication! This isn’t just a review! This is…yet another rambly unedited video book review!

Howdy-do, guys, gals, and non-binary pals! How’s everyone’s April been so far? I hope everyone’s had a good week. I know I am, and I am so excited about what I’m going to be sharing with everyone today!
Y’all know I go hard for books published by Filipino authors. And I especially go hard for books published by Filipino authors that discuss issues and events that are relevant today. Enter My Fate According to the Butterfly by Gail D. Villanueva.

March flew by like nothing, didn’t it? To be honest, it felt like I’d just written my February 2019 Wrap-Up and my March 2019 TBR and suddenly, March was over. As a matter of fact, in only a few days, April will be half over – and I’m only getting around to posting this wrap-up and TBR just now. I am tired, y’all.

Picture this. Everyone on my Twitter feed and their mother had read Descendant of the Crane, a 2019 publication that was touted to be like Chinese Game of Thrones. That, plus an utterly gorgeous cover, pretty much guaranteed that this book would make it to the top of my must read list.
By mid-February, I had pretty much lost all hope of ever getting an ARC and had resigned myself to just pre-ordering and waiting for the Chinese fantasy goodness to arrive on my iPad. But then – the clouds parted and lightning struck. Edelweiss granted my request for an ARC. I screamed, took a screenshot, tweeted said screenshot, and reveled in the congratulations from my followers – as well as the dire warnings from those who’d read it already that this book would break my heart.
They were right. Read on to find out why!
