Book Traveling Thursdays: Dawn (Xenogenesis, #1) by Octavia E. Butler

Happy Thursday! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these, mostly because the group itself is on hiatus, but also because of my unofficial hiatus for most of the second half of last year. Because I’m traveling right now, I decided to do one of these this week instead of a more… Continue reading Book Traveling Thursdays: Dawn (Xenogenesis, #1) by Octavia E. Butler

Happy Wednesday! For this week’s Mid-Week Mini Review, I had to highlight Dhonielle Clayton & Sona Charaipotra’s debut book about the hidden, vicious cruelty inside the world of competitive ballet. As a former ballerina, this novel definitely exposed the harsh and bitter side of professional dancing for those who are unfamiliar with the struggle of… Continue reading Mid-Week Mini Review: Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton
