Last year, I got an ARC of Anna K and was so excited for a modern retelling of one of my favorite classics. I adored it, it was fresh and modern and still had the emotional punch of the original. I then went on to win a caption contest giveaway from the lovely Jenny Lee for a signed copy – check out my openmypages Instagram to see that!
So anyway, on to Anna K Away… this was my first Libro.fm ALC and boy did it make my daily walks fun this weekend. I was slightly worried without source material to pull from whether the story could maintain its intensity, but it definitely does. All of the secondary characters really get their due in this one, all of the storylines we loved in the first novel got extended and flushed out in really fabulous ways. It’s all glitz and glam and drama but there are also so many sweet coming of age moments. I loved the frequent change of local and the deep dive into Korean culture and K-Pop. Another fun read from Jenny Lee!!
