Even though I haven't read much Young Adult this year, I still notice the popular books and trends. One of the books which has been HYPED UP is The Gilded Wolves. Almost everyone was talking about it. Especially since it involves a diverse set of characters, the praise was high. So when I got the mood to read a YA book, this was the first one that I picked.
There has been so much hype for this book online since the time it released. I added it to my list and was waiting for the paperback's price to go down so I can own it as a physical copy. Sadly, it never went down.* I finally caved and got the ebook just in time to participate in the Autumn is for Asia read-a-long happening on Instagram. The Poppy War is the buddy read book for September, and it gave me the motivation to finally read this tome.
I read the trilogy over a month or so, taking a break during my finals, and IT. WAS. AWESOME. I considered doing individual review for each book, but I don't think I can now that I've read it all. There's just so much to talk about! Today, I am here with a discussion post, where basically Teenu and I talk about the trilogy, giving you our opinions, our favourite parts, and much more.
