Back Pages: Illuminae – Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Back Pages: Illuminae – ..

In November I had a small idea for a blog tour called Back Pages. I wanted readers to go back and read those books they has been planning to and never got around to. I had every intention of hosting a legit blog tour for it. Well COVID happened and plans ended up changing while everyone got used to a new sort of normal. So while Back Pages isn’t going to happen has planned, I’m kicking off my new version of the plan with the review of my selected book.   Illuminae was an unexpected reading experience for me. I’m […]

Blog Tour: Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit

Blog Tour: Anna and the Swallo..

I had heard about Anna and the Swallow Man back in May at BEA. I was talking to a friend on the showroom floor and she mentioned the book and it had been in the back of my mind ever since. When I was contacted about reading it for a blog tour I immediately said yes. I knew it would be a tough read thanks to the subject matter and parts of it really were.
