Book Review! A Crown of Wishes by Chokshi

Thank you Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for the opportunity to read and review this book! My opinions are entirely my own.


Let me just start off by saying – this is a thoroughly enjoyable adventure! While I haven’t read The Star-Touched Queen (YET!) I have heard some criticisms of Roshani Chockshi’s writing style, and was a bit hesitant going into A Crown of Wishes… and ended up being VERY pleasantly surprised! Chockshi manages a rare feat of turning a poem into an adventure, a song into a story. Each sentence is a delight and leaves me filled with so much writer envy I can hardly stand it.

Writing aside, the story is brilliantly mapped out as well. Characters leap off the page, their agency never forgotten, their wit and verve endless. You will swoon over Vikram and cheer for Gauri. Their entirely original tale has the potential to be shared for years and years. Sassy birds and haunted pasts fill out the corners, the twists and turns on Gauri and Vikram’s path leaving you gripped. You won’t be able to put down this book!

Overall, I definitely recommend this book to fans of Renee Ahdieh’s The Wrath and the Dawn, and readers who can’t get enough of Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes. Also, if you haven’t read Star-Touched Queen yet don’t fret – this book stands entirely on its own!
