United States: If I Ever Get Out of Here by Eric Gansworth

I know I specifically mentioned in the about section of this blog that Read the World Project would not be focussed on reviewing books by American or English authors and I’m not departing from that sentiment all together.

Canada: Lightfinder by Aaron Paquette

Lightfinder is a book I polished off during diverseathon and one that I have been putting off reviewing because it was a book I wanted to love.

Today I want to review a book that I still feel pretty torn about. Crossroads of Canopy is a debut fantasy novel by Australian author Thoraiya Dyer who identifies as a PoC and has received some buzz for her short stories.

The Philippines: Dwellers by Eliza Victoria

At just 124 pages, Dwellers by Eliza Victoria is really more of a novella than a novel. Set in the Philippines, particularly around Manila, this fantasy novella follows the story of two young men who have the ability to inhabit the bodies of others. This ability is a family secret which they cannot disclose to…… Continue reading The Philippines: Dwellers by Eliza Victoria
