Book Review: Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

God of Jade and Shadow caught my eye when it released last July -- I mean, look at that cover! Being buried under a pile of books -- as per usual -- I never got the chance to look into it until I asked a friend about books featuring Mexican mythology. She recommended this book and I snapped it up, once again proving that I have amazing friends with great taste in books. I can’t believe I had nearly let Gods of Jade and Shadow pass me by!

ARC Review: The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad has been on my radar since its publication in 2016.  It received pretty much all of the good press a book could get – it was one of the titles in Oprah’s book club, won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the National Book Award, and was named as one of the books Barack Obama read while in office.  It’s a departure from a lot of the books I’ve been reading these days, but I knew I had to pick it up.
