Sugar, Smoke, Song

I received an advanced review copy of this book from Edelweiss, and I’m voluntarily providing a review. I was intrigued by so many facets of this collection of stories. Reema Rajbanshi’s debut novel Sugar, Smoke, Song was a beautifully written work that was deeper than it appeared to […]

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

I finally got around to reading The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, a true story that I have been meaning to read for ages, but have been putting off due to personal concerns, which I’ll address after my trigger warning. EDIT: I’ve updated this review after being […]
