Wicked Fox
Wicked Fox | Kat Cho
A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul. No one in modern-day Seoul believes in the old fables anymore, which makes it the perfect place to for Gu Miyoung and her mother to hide in plain sight. Mihoung is a Gumiho, a nine-tailed fox, who must eat the souls of men to survive. She feeds every full moon--eating the souls of men who have committed crimes, but have evaded justice. Her life is upended when she kills a dokkaebi, a murderous goblin, in the forest just to save the life of a stupid boy. But after Miyoung saves Jihoon's life, the two develop a tenuous friendship that blooms into romance forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon's.

#thoughtyouwouldlikebutdidnt #gratefulreads read this a few months ago and it was ok. Not my favorite which is a shame cause I love foxes but this just didn‘t hit the mark for me.

The lore was really interesting but the characters and the plot fell flat for me.

If you feel oversaturated by faux-European fantasy, check out this twist on Korean folklore! I haven't watched K-dramas, so some of those tropes may be more obvious to other readers, but I thought this was a great unlikely allies/enemies to lovers story, with mouthwatering descriptions of food. Miyoung's torn loyalties and revenge vs protection were some favorite themes, roguish Junu was my surprise favorite character.

Oh, I am loving #BOTM‘s sci-fi/fantasy YA picks. In this one, gumiho Miyoung is challenged by who she is and how she wants to live in the human world when classmate Jihoon discovers her true identity. This is another book that left me eager to pick up the next book.

What a read! Half-gumiho, half-human Miyoung loathes killing to survive but does her best to be good, feeding only on evil men at the full moon. But when she saves Jihoon, a human boy, from a goblin, losing her fox spirit in the process, she has to risk everything to figure out how to get it back without becoming the monster she's always feared she would become. Lots of tension and drama & loved all the Korean mythology. Definitely recommended!

It was ok, but just not what I expected. This feels kind of insta lovey to me. It also seems like they‘re hot and cold. One minute they‘re in love and the next they‘re mad at each other. Just didn‘t like this as much as I thought I would.

Missusb Yeah I found it long and melodrama-y. But that‘s apparently very much a K-drama tone. 4mo

Miyoung is a gumiho, a nine tailed fox, who saves a boy, Jiyoon, while he is being attacked by a dokkaebi, a goblin. In saving his life she has put hers at risk. I really liked this for the most part. I felt the second half dragged jusssst a little. However, the Korean culture, the food, all the mythology, the glossary in the back for all the Korean words used, the family dynamics, and all the DRAMA made this an enjoyable read. Pick!

TrishB Great review 👍🏻 book sounds interesting! 4mo
BooknerdsLife Awww Thank you for the review! 👍🏼 I have this book on my kindle, might need to push it up on my TBR 🙌🏼📚 3mo

The game I‘ve been playing for years, League of Legends, has this character shown up above named Ahri. And her bio is that she is a 9 tail fox creature who feeds on the lives of men. I just thought the game makers were being creative. Turns out it‘s Korean folklore. That ball she is holding which I thought was just some magic ball is her yeowu guseul- fox bead, which is her soul. Hmm, the more you know. Thanks reading! Lol.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I originally ran across that creature in of all place a book from the Vampire Diaries...haha. I love the books that pull from mythology. 4mo
DivineDiana Fascinating! 4mo
LibrarianJen Strangely reminds me of the Oodkind from Dr. Who. 4mo

Reggie @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @LibrarianJen @DivineDiana It is fascinating. I‘m surprised you ladies didn‘t say it showed up in Supernatural. Lol. I do like mythology retellings and tie-ins. I even jumped the gun on this because the boy in here even tells her chapters later there is a gumiho character in League of Legends named Ahri. It was pretty cool. (Cause I‘m a nerd like that..😎) 4mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Reggie That‘s great when your tie in thought shows up later in the book!! Very cool! 4mo
LibrarianJen I haven‘t watched much of supernatural 😳 I know, I‘m the worst nerd ever. 4mo
Reggie @LibrarianJen not ever having watched Dr.Who is my secret shame. 🤫 don‘t tell anyone. Lol 4mo

I really liked the story and the mythology in this one! It felt like it dragged on towards the end but I'm definitely interested in a sequel, if one is coming!

📚 Currently Reading: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho!
🦊 This book is really cute and fun so far, I love how Korean mythology is woven into the story and how it reminds me of a lot of kdramas I‘ve watched. I‘ve got about 100 pages left so I‘ll see if anything happens to change how I feel about the book, but so far it‘s a ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ book for me.

The Good:
1. I love this cover, title, series name and setting

2. I enjoyed most of the characters and the overall plot

The Bad:
1. The romance is weird and felt random.
2. DEAR LORD STOP CASTING AUDIOBOOK NARRATORS WHO TALK BREATHLESS AS IF THEY'RE A FAINTING GOVERNESS FOR THE WHOLE BOOK! I should hear a difference in your voice when you pour milk in cereal or get murdered!
3. Pitched as fantasy romance. Feels like paranormal contemporary.

allureofbeauty I kind of want to read that one. Also cute bookmarks. 5mo
SassenachTheBookWizard @allureofbeauty thanks! I hope you enjoy but I wouldn't recommend the audiobook 5mo
allureofbeauty @SassenachTheBookWizard what was bad about it? 5mo
Ruri_kaichou Thanks for the heads up on the audiobook. I know it's subjective about the voice you prefer, but itcan totally make or break a reading experience so I like to see thoughts about them. I'll make sure to get a print copy 5mo

Not sure what I was expecting from this. The first half was.so.good. but the second half just kind of ruined it for me, and now I can‘t really recommend it unless you‘re really into plot twists that happen just for drama‘s sake.

Wicked Fox took me on YA Fantasy ride through Seoul. It follows Gu Miyoung, a gumiho (nine-tailed Fox), and Jihoon, a teenage boy. Gumiho must kill men by stealing their energy to survive. Fate throws Miyoung and Jihoon together when Miyoung saves Jihoon from a goblin attack. In the process Miyoung loses her bead, her gumiho soul. She and Jihoon must work together to get it back to Miyoung. Excuse me while I go plan my trip to Seoul!

Look what arrived at today‘s home mailbox.

I “claimed” this title from BookishFirst. I had done enough other reviews to claim a free title. This looks really fun.

It was a cute picture until I used the flash. And now she won‘t sit still again.

Had so much fun reading this fun-filled, enticing story which reminded me a lot of the K-drama I watched, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, a long time ago. I really liked the exploration of the folklore of the gumiho, nine-tailed foxes that feed on men‘s life force. How fitting that I read this when I was in Seoul! #WickedFox #youngadult
