  1. You have so many on here that I haven’t heard of. I still feel out of the loop when it comes to the new releases. The only one I have on my radar is Bear and the Nightingale I will be watching for your reviews on some of these!

  2. Dude… the bird on See What I Have Done looks piiiiissssssed. That is not a happy little avian, lol.

    There are some very interesting books on this! I honestly had no heard of most of them but will now be watching for reviews and thoughts on them, (especially American War — what an intriguing premise!).
