That’s a really long title. This is a really long post. It was going to be a book review but it turned into more of a book report. You’ve been warned.
I recently finished The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. It’s a YA historical adventure fiction story, but written with modern-style prose which makes it more digestible for today’s average teenager.

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline has been marketed as dystopian—which it is, taking place in a future Canada ravaged by global warming where people have lost the ability to dream—but I found it to be just as much, if not more, of a coming-of-age story.

After I plotted two books beginning to end, I thought I’d write them a lot faster. Instead, I seem to be writing at the same pace as I’ve always written, and due to my limited time, my word count has grown at an even slower pace than it did when I wrote the first draft with no plan at all.

If you have any questions about the books here or want to start a discussion, I can go more into depth in the comments.

I picked this book up because of its cover. I bought it because of the blurb. I finished it in the span of twenty-four hours because it was fucking amazing. (Side note: If the word “fucking” in that last sentence offended you, skip the book.)

In my last year of university, my dissertation tutor wanted me to read this book. While it sounded interesting enough, the only way I could get a copy was by buying it online and I was trying not to buy any books because my suitcase was heavy enough as it was.
