Scythe is a book that has taken the UK book blogging community by storm. It is much-beloved by our US pals, and the highly anticipated sequel has just been released in the States. I was really looking forward to this book, however I ended up a little let down by the lackluster characters and plot.
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Simon Ings' new book The Smoke! This twisting tale of literary fiction is sure to grab you from the first pages. Told in the second person, it's a bold and unique take on dystopian fiction and alternate history.
I was immediately intrigued by Gather the Daughters, and not just because of its gorgeous cover. The synopsis sounds like a creepy, horror-filled, literary dystopia. It gave me the same vibes as The Handmaid's Tale, which I recently read and loved, so I eagerly dove straight in.
Happy Friday! I’m sadly back from holiday and have readjusted to real life. I did manage to read two books this week, but also bought a whole bunch more. What TBR challenge?
Conjoined twins! Cults! Dystopian San Francisco! Murder! I took one look and realised that this would be a unique read and just ticks so many boxes for me. I was really impressed by this book -- I ended up really enjoying it and am officially a Laura Lam fan.
