[Book Review] Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

Book Review of Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid is a book that I heard so many wonderful things about. When my work book club picked it as our next read, I snagged a copy at my local bookshop, Bookery.

[Book Review] The Summer the World Ended by Matthew S. Cox


The Summer the World Ended by Matthew S. Cox... oh my goodness. What a rollercoaster! This is another book where I just want to shout, "GO READ THIS!" This book has heartbreak, quite a bit of terror, and a whole lot of heart.

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way. 

To be honest, I didn't remember anything about the synopsis before I dove into this one. I had read it once, when I agreed to review the book, but by the time I finally got around to reading it, it was like I was totally clueless.

If you enjoy letting a book take you by surprise, I recommend skipping this review and avoiding the synopsis.

What I will tell you without spoiling anything is that this is an intense ride. I almost DNFed it because the first few chapters were so heartbreaking and hit me really hard. I'm so glad I stuck with it though because once the main character leaves her hometown, it's a real page-turner filled with twists and turns!

If you don't mind being a bit spoiled (even with the synopsis), let's dive in!
