Bio

“I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life.” And if I can’t get out into the world and live that way, then books are the way I accomplish it.

Really enjoyed this concept and thought it was well executed. Seeing different versions of people across different worlds was interesting - how the environment you find yourself in plays such a major role in changing who you are as a person. Vivid world building, satisfying character development, fast paced action, and twists a long the way. Surprised people found it hard to get into… but then I’m also surprised people like Colleen Hoover books. So if you agree with that statement then this read is a must lol

Super interesting read. Sci-fi distant future tech philosophy - plausible enough to make you ponder what the role of technology is in the meaning of life and the formation of the universe. Dry but not dark.

Good WWII thriller set in the US. I’ve read a lot of WW fiction but never anything set in the US dealing with domestic spies. Really enjoyed the angle.

Loved this! Mind bending. Amazing POV from multiple characters effected by the anomaly. Really thought provoking. Putting myself in their shoes was fascinating

Beautiful and devastating. One of the best WW2 historical fiction I’ve read. POV of death added an unexpected layer of depth, imagery of Munich is vivid, the characters feel like family. 10/10

Overall a positive read, but it took me a long time to get though. Characters were interesting and the imagery was vivid but I found the plot slow. Enjoyed it mostly because I recently visited Savannah and loved the city - reading the book assuaged my nostalgia, making me feel like I was still there.
