An alternate history about a mysterious weapon and old world Gods. I read it in a few hours would definitely recommend. #blitsy #blacklitsy

Light and fluffy. A book written in letters but the government is slowly banning letters from the alphabet. It‘s ridiculous and cute.

Two slaves escape from a plantation in Georgia and slowly make their way north on an literal Underground Railroad. I‘m definitely reading something light and fluffy next. #blitsy #blacklitsy

This novella is only 135 pages but I think it should have been at least twice that. The story and characters needed to be fleshed out more. I wouldn‘t recommend unless you really need something to read on the plane

This has been on my TBR for a while. I finally picked it up because it has similar topic to the book I borrowed from #Byobook club. It‘s about how people around the world treat their dead(funeral practices, body farm, death tourism) I‘m willing to try more non fiction because of this

Meh. I enjoyed Setterfield‘s previous novels much more than this one. It was slow, meandering and I had a hard time connecting with the characters.

This review is super late because life happened. I enjoyed this book but not as much as her other novels. It was a bit slow in places and had way too many side characters. Otherwise it is an enjoyable romantic-ish book.

3 seasons of an amazing podcast in one okay book. It lacked some of weirdness that I loved about the show. If you‘ve never listened to the show I would recommend reading the book first.
