ARC Review: Tales of the Celestial Kingdom by Sue Lynn Tan

Today’s review is about TALES OF THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM by Sue Lynn Tan. It’s a compilation of short stories, from familiar characters, that occur before, during, and after the Celestial Kingdom duology. They offer insights into what these characters were up to behind the scenes. I recommend reading the duology beforehand since there are spoilers.

Book Review: Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown

Today’s review is about FEEDING THE SOUL by Tabitha Brown. I read this book nearly a year ago and forgot to post my review.
