Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

This book was the Mysterious Galaxy YA Book Club pick for May #mgyabc

I didn’t finish this book, but I have a lot of thoughts about it. I didn’t want to give it one star, because I don’t feel it was a bad book, just not a book for me. Personally, it was slow going, but the details were really interesting. It didn’t remind me of any book I’ve read before, which is always a pleasant surprise. Also, I love the LGBTQIA+ representation in this book (lesbian, bisexual, asexual). Overall, what made it a DNF for me was that I wanted more depth to the story. I wanted to know more about the world, the legend behind it, and the different jinx work. I just couldn’t get into it, but I think that this may be a great read for some people, so I wouldn’t discourage anyone from reading it!
