GILDED By Christina Farley


So my very dear friend, Christy Farley, has just released her debut book GILDED and I seriously couldn't be more excited!!! I love love love this book! Because it is set in Korea and has a Korean MC!!! Here's the summary:

When sixteen-year old, Jae Hwa, is uprooted from her home in L.A. to Korea, she thought her biggest problem would be fitting in with her classmates and dealing with her dismissive grandfather. But she was wrong. A Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. And she’s next.
Jae trains with a Korean master, confident her taekwondo will be enough to fight Haemosu. But she’s wrong again. Desperate, Jae delves into the ancient arts of metamorphism and uses her growing power in the Spirit World.
And then there’s Marc. Irresistible, charming, and mysterious, Marc threatens to break the barriers around Jae’s heart. But Marc has a secret of his own. One that could help destroy Haemosu. As Jae grows closer to him, she must decide if she can trust him and whether putting his life in jeopardy is worth the risk.
Jae thought she knew all the answers. It turns out that she’s been wrong about a lot of things: her grandfather is her greatest ally, even the tough girl can fall in love, and Korea might just be the home she’s always been looking for.
I've been  so happy and excited about Gilded and now that it is out, I want everyone to go read it. So I'm doing a giveaway for a copy of Gilded!!! All you have to do is tweet or tumble back to me or leave a comment on the blog! The giveaway will be open for one week!!!

Hi Ellen! Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway! As being a Korean myself, I was very shocked to have found Gilded. You don't see many Asian- heroine is american novels so when I came across Gilded I thought it was so cool! I read the synopsis of the story and I have got to say that Jae Hwa is one cool chick haha. Once again, thank you so much for this giveaway! I'm happy to have come across your blog. :)

Thank you Ellen for being so amazing through this whole process. Last week I had an Asian girl come up to me after my talk at her school and she thanked me for writing a book with an Asian protagonist. I almost started crying there right in front of her. Just hearing her say that made every moment of this journey worth it.
