My first introduction to him was the fantastic Girl With All the Gifts, a heart tugging thrilling zombie adventure that was recently adapted… Continue reading Fellside by M. R.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth | 1 Minute Reviews

What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons | 1 Minute Reviews

When I started reading What We Lose, I thought it was a memoir. 50 pages in I happened to turn over the proof and noticed the words “a novel”, alongside realising that the author’s name was Zinzi, not Thandi. I had become so enraptured in the writing, I hadn’t for a second thought it wasn’t… Continue reading What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons | 1 Minute Reviews
