I have to admit I was a bit excited when I saw that this book was a “Jimmy Patterson” selection. I received this book in one of my bookish subscription boxes, and let’s be honest, it has a powerful and eye-catching cover. I had a hard time putting this book down. I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to the next book in the series. Reading this book contributed to these challenges:Year Of Asian Stories
Hello my pretties! I’m kicking off the first weekend of February with an in-depth interview with the one and only R.R Campbell, author of the newly released science fiction thriller, IMMINENT DAWN.

My Real Children by Jo Walton is an engrossing read. Perhaps even an impactful one. It took hold of me and wouldn’t let me go. I don’t think it’s responsible for my bout of 2am insomnia the other night, but it sure took advantage of the situation, enticing me to stay up reading instead of trying harder to get to sleep on a work night.
