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.
Readers are picky people. We are loyal to our paperbacks, hardcovers, or e-books, and often will not buy a new book until it is in our preferred format.

There was so much hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi. It is the kind of book that YA readers have been crying out for for ages, and Menon absolutely hit the nail on the head.

Happy Friday, book lovers! I didn't do a weekly wrap-up last week because it conflicted with my monthly round-up, so this will cover the past two weeks. Aren't you guys lucky? Here we go!
It's my birthday today! So instead of your regularly scheduled book post, here's a picture of the cats with poorly drawn party hats. I'll be back tomorrow 🙂
This book was shortlisted for both the Hugo and Nebula awards this year, and it's easy to see why. Ninefox Gambit is an incredible feat of science fiction -- Lee manages to create an incredibly intricate and complicated, yet entertaining world.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman – he’s one of my favorite living writers. With the success of Amazon’s adaptation of American Gods, I feel like there are people out there who have never read his books but would like to start. Here’s your quick guide to Gaiman! If you want to start with The … Continue reading A Guide to Reading Neil Gaiman
