This is going to be a first for me: I’m reviewing TAGALOG work.
I typically don’t do that because, despite being a Filipino living in the Philippines, I’m not all that fluent in Tagalog (or any of the many dialects of our country). I have trouble immersing myself in non-English work, and am always afraid that I won’t do the review justice.
But then I read Janus Silang Books 1 and 2. And while I can’t really say I’ll be able to offer comprehensive review of this local YA series, I can make up for it in fangirling. Because holy crap, these books are amazing AND THE SERIES ISN’T DONE YET. I’m also looking forward to some proper English translations for the benefit of my non-Filipino friends.
PS: In light of this deviation from my usual readings, I won’t be following my usual review format and will instead go a little more freestyle than usual.
But there might still be spoilers, so if you’re still interested – I’ll see you after the jump 😀
