The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak Fun, nerdy, relatable and yet shocking - a tale of being a teen in the 80's

Back to the blog and so long to the unannounced, unplanned hiatus. Or rather, I hope so?

And none the wiser, cause… Continue reading The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak Fun, nerdy, relatable and yet shocking – a tale of being a teen in the 80's

So I’ve been putting this one off for quite a while. Because sometimes, when you read a really, and I mean REALLY good book, you’re just afraid your review will not do it justice. I still think that.   But, despite that, I have decided to finally get to it and write the best review I… Continue reading A Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet Or the sweetest and most fangirl-provoking scifi read I've enjoyed this year
