Climate Change and Cloud Horse Chronicles; Recent NetGalley Requests

Looking back, I kind of regret including these books together for this post because while one couldn't be more serious...the other is quite obviously a fantasy story. If it comes down to readers of this post only getting one thing from it, I do deeply hope that it's a request for the first book and…

Keep This to Yourself [Tom Ryan]; 2019 YA Releases

I can tell just from the cover that Keep This to Yourself by Tom Ryan is not a book for me. And the synopsis very quickly corroborates this truth. A murder mystery, thriller novel that features a serial killer, a dead best friend, and a boy who feels like he's being watched. I'm sure you can see…

Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die [Nikki Tate]

Choosing to Live, Choosing to Die by Nikki Tate covers a topic I have always felt quite strongly about. Assisted dying is one of those subjects that has been controversial for a rather long time, subsisting in the simple fact that our world as a whole is largely against choosing death in any form.

A Warrior and Amnesia; Recent NetGalley Requests

I've grown rather fond of graphic novels lately and have a tendency to request them a bit more often than I used to.

I'm looking forward to delving into these likely vastly…

Missing, Presumed Dead [Emma Berquist]; 2019 YA Releases

Missing, Presumed Dead by Emma Berquist sounds all kinds of yikes. And it is definitely not my kind of book. I mean, I'll concede that it does sound somewhat interesting. A girl with the ability to tell when and how someone will die, but is unable to change the fate. And then one of these ghosts…

Kind Mr. Bear [Steve Smallman]

I'm incredibly fond of Kind Mr. Bear by Steve Smallman, a tale of an incredibly helpful bear who spends his time always ready and available to offer assistance to his animal friends around the forest. Whenever one of his friends needs something, he is always nearby to provide them with whatever they require and quite happy…

Oppression and Politics; Recent NetGalley Requests

I've already read both of these graphic novels as, if I'm recalling correctly, they were Read Now requests. I enjoyed reading both, though I'll admit that Half-Blood kept me more captivated. The fact of the matter is that Tales from Behind the Window is terrifying due to it's truths. This is a real story about a young woman…
