Earlier this summer I read and loved Barker’s debut novel, Age of Assassins, so I was extremely excited to have the chance to read and review his latest book.

Basically, this book is Justine catnip and dove into it with extremely high expectations.

Welcome to my stop on the A Little Hatred blog tour! I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to hear that one of my favourite authors was coming out with a new book.

Happy Friday, all! Yet again, we are in a time slip. I can't believe September is nearly over! This month's reading is still going pretty poorly, however I have made some progress. Check it out!
I confess that I’m not much of a graphic novel reader, however sometimes one comes along that captures my interest. I don’t often have a huge amount to say about graphic novels, so I’m doing two mini reviews of two very different books today!
