I read this for the first time back in August 2019 as part of a week-long read-a-thon and I think I got it all wrong. It was the height of summer, I was listening to the audiobook on 2x speed and as you can imagine the result was a sub-par reading experience and a 3-star rating. As I didn’t give this book a fair chance, I decided to give it another go this October.
As I was scrolling through Goodreads I realised that I’ve read, and want to read, quite a few Tor.com novellas. For those of you who don’t know, Tor.com is the science fiction and fantasy publishing imprint of the Macmillan publishing house. They publish both emerging and well-established authors in both novella and novel format.
Booktube has quickly become a great source of entertainment and book recommendations for me. I watch lots of creators and read lots of their book recommendations but it’s hard to know who’s recs I should be listening to. To help with this, I took inspiration from a few videos and decided to start a ‘taste test’ series.
