• I’m only a few pages in and I already LOVE Genie and Quintin’s banter.
  • I love how diverse this book is. Yes. Go Asian rep.
  • I just love Genie already she has so much spunk.
  • BOYS WHO BLUSH. I mean it’s not Quentin but I have a forever soft spot for boys who blush including Rutsuo.
  • I love this retelling of The Monkey King!! This is amazing! Also it’s weird he has a tail…
  • His “parents” lool. He certainly put enough “parent” into them.
  • Haha when they walk in on the two of them 😂😂😂
  • Well in Genie’s defense I would have punched him too for calling me a stick.
  • Well this took an unexpected turn, how are they going to contain the spirit of Ruyi jingu bang if they strip Genie of her physical form? Wouldn’t she just be reincarnated?
  • Gettin’ steamyyyyy. Wouldn’t it be weird to have the hots for someone you knew in a previous life but had no inclining or your feelings? Like in all the reincarnation stories they’re always lost lovers. But instead, it’s like coming back to your best friend realizing literally EVERYTHING has changed. Feelings and otherwise.
  • Oh snap. Androu is the Red Boy. He’s been playing the long game!!!
  • Oh yes. Hello, two boys at the concert. This is the kind of love triangle nonsense I live for.
  • I love Yunie so much. Why does she have to suffer???
  • Man, now I’m doubting whether it’s Androu or not. I mean it seems probable, but at the same time maybe it’s not??
  • Okay, so it probabaly wasn’t Androu. I also have this theory it’s Erlang Shen because all of a sudden he and Guanyin never appear together anymore but…
  • Oh flip, after him trying to convince her to go to heaven with I’m even more sure Erlang Shen’s the Red Boy.
  • Called it!!
  • I mean I knew they’d win so it was no surprise but I just want more time with themmmm.
  • Oh flip. What does being a go-between even mean??
  • 7/10—I LOVED LOVED this book. It has an amazing connection to Chinese mythology. Genie has so much fire and she’s super smart and super funny. Also she looks nothing like people think Chinese people look like. She’s tall and strongly built. I just LOVE it. I can’t wait for the sequel. Because honestly after that ending there can’t NOT be a sequel!
