Fragments of your Soul by E.S. ErbslandFragments of Your Soul by E.S. Erbsland

I’ve always been a fan of alternative worlds with mysterious creatures. Erbsland does a fantastic job of building the world Arvid Bergen is thrusted into; there are shapeshifters, runes, and a mysterious god who seems untrustworthy. The universe is really strange and brilliant, and the vivid description guided me through the plot and kept me wanting more. I can’t wait for the next book in The Mirror Worlds Series!!

Broken Places by Rachel ThompsonBroken Places by Rachel Thompson

As an aspiring memorist, this narrative hit close to home for me. I’m not a sexual abuse survivor, but I can relate to using books and music as a way to escape from a problem, or if I just need to forget about my emotions. Books and writing have always been a safe place for me. The story is touching and courageous, and I felt a deep connection to the author as she took the reader through her journey of recovery. A beautiful narrative, highly recommended.
