Blog Tour: Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit

Anna and the Swallow Man

I don’t read a lot of historical fiction but I absolutely adore middle grade novels so when I heard about Anna and the Swallow Man, I knew I was going to have a lot of feels and would probably need a lot of tissues. The book; however, turned out to be not exactly what I […]

ARC Review: Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

Vengeance Road

You know what makes me happy? That YA Westerns are finally becoming a thing. One of my favorite (and most anticipated books of the year) was a YA Western and as soon as I heard that Vengeance Road was a YA Western (AND SAW THAT BEAUTIFUL COVER), I was sold. I ached with the need […]

Review: L’homme qui rit (The Man Who Laughs)

quirit

La société lui avait tout de suite, d’emblée, à la fois, fait ses trois offres et donné ses trois dons, le mariage, la famille, la caste. Le mariage? il avait vu sur le seuil la prostitution.
