Page Turner: Hex

If I had a nickel for every time I read a book titled Hex and was disappointed with it, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but it's weird that it happened twice.

The book is an in-world written account of the Biologist of... Continue Reading →

This is more likely than not the last instalment of Isolation Book Club. I hope other bookworms out there took advantage of the free time we ended up with our hands.
