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!

N/B – These rep lists are not totally complete either because I haven’t read the book yet or I have read the book but forgotten some of the rep!

Top 10 Tuesday | Diverse British Fiction

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Books Which Represent the Diversity of Britain –

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt was actually Books That Take Place in Another Country but I felt really moved to do something about my own country and its diversity. Part of this is motivated by a very long and enduring grudge that I have against the British film industry which continually perpetuates this idea of Britain as some kind of posh, white British utopia full of Keira Knightley’s and Benedict Cumberbatch’s. But my Britain is a lot less Pride and Prejudice and a lot more Kidadulthood. This is not to say that everywhere in Britain is like that, but I am from a world of estates, tracksuits and hanging around in the streets rather than big houses, tweed, and Oxbridge.
