Book Tag | Fall Reading

Destiny tagged me in her Coffee Book Tag post the other day, but I had already been eyeing up the Fall Reading Book Tag she also did recently so I’ve decided to do the Fall Reading tag today and the Coffee Book tag next week – because I can never have too many book tags prepared ;D

Mini Reviews: The Tensorate Series | One word: Incredible

Mini Reviews: The Tensorate Series | One word: Incredible

Let me start my review off by saying that this series by J.Y Yang is legitimately incredible and deserves all of the stars ever. It’s a beautifully written novella series which contains a breathtaking world, intriguing characters, human/animal relations, and fascinating stories which expertly combine into an overarching plot. Each novella contributes something new, offering different perspectives which keeps the story fresh as well as a rich depth and breadth to the world, which by the way, is AMAZING. I tore through all 3 books in just a few days and cemented J.Y Yang as an auto-buy author for me!
