Review: Forest Of A Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

This is certainly one of the best books I have ever read!

When I first heard about Forest of a Thousand Lanterns I immediately added it to my TBR.
It definitely sounded like something I would enjoy and to be honest, once I knew about this book, I couldn´t stop thinking about it. And to my surprise I was able to get an ARC of FOATL!!!! I couldn´t believe it, I fangirled a lot and almost cried! This book is special for me  because of three things: I got it on my first trip to New York, I met one of my closest and amazing friends from Twitter, Brittany❤️ and I met Julie as well! It was an emotional day ❤️😭

When I finished reading the first chapter of FOATL I thought: OMG and then I kept reading and then I couldn´t stop reading because things were happening and I needed to know why they happened and what was going to happen next.
It was a rollercoaster of feels🙌🙌🙌
I wasn´t able to put the book down, I just new I had to read more and then when I was close to the ending I didn´t want to finish it because IT WAS SOO GOOD but of course, I needed to know how this beautiful and amazing story was going to end.

To say that this book was amazing isn´t enough. IT WAS PERFECT AND OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING.

It is the first villain story I have read and loved.
Julie´s writing style was so perfect and on point that made this story very realistic. Xifeng is definitely my new favorite villain character. She was strong, powerful but at the same time vulnerable. While reading the story I could realized how she struggled with the darkness that was taking over her. She is a character that will fight for what she wants and to be where she knows she deserves to be, as the new Empress of Feng Lu.
The characters of this book were amazing and I really liked their personality. Some of my favorite characters were Shiro and Hideki, they were brave and funny ❤️❤️❤️

This book surprised me when I least expected. There were some twists that I didn´t see coming, I was shocked and WOW just WOW. This story was full of darkness, light and hope and after reading it  I can say that FOATL is definitely worth the wait. It is one of the best books I have ever read in a while and I´m seriously considering to read it again as soon as I can❤️

I can´t wait to read the next book, after reading that last page… well…. IT´S GOING TO BE AMAZING,
What do you guys think? Are you planning to read this book? Let me know in the comments below, i would love to hear your thoughts,
