You guys, Kat Cho’s Wicked Fox come out a few weeks ago and we’re gonna talk about it. Be warned, my brain is still processing the marvelous work that this book is so forgive me for the lack of my normal sass-and-trash format. My Goodreads review can be found here.
- Asian-American author writing a book about Asian people. #OwnVoices for the win!
- Mythology! I loved the little inserts of Gumiho lore between the chapters. It really helped to bring the story to life! I also liked how the lore really tied in to the story! No spoilers but…the original Gumiho is a character in the story and when I put the pieces together — I was so shocked. Truly amazing the way Kat was able to drop that one in.
- I liked the use of Korean words! I don’t know Korean but it was really neat to see. I learned that you say the last (family) name first before the personal name.
- So many strong, fleshed out characters!
- Nothing. Literally nothing.
- If anything, it was too short and I need mooooore.
Nitty Gritty Pick this one up! It’s worth the read and the story is so intoxicating you’ll easily read 50-60 pages in a sitting before realizing any time has passed. Kat Cho has written a beautiful story about teenage angst, love, and choosing others over one’s self.
I was fortunate enough to have won an ARC of this book in a BookishFirst giveaway. I am thankful to the publisher for this copy. Wicked Fox is Kat Cho’s debut novel. It was released on June 25, 2019 from Putnam Books.
