Very nice indeed when fully inbarked in the amazingly created alin of albim part dystopian, futuristic and fantasy book.

I wish it was aldready invented in our world. Am I the only person who had a few moments of brain trauma while trying to figure out this world within a world uh I received a free ecopy of this title from the publisher through Netgalley for a fair and honest review.

It just seemed like she wasn’t that smart when it came to thinking through all of the new opportunities that could come with such a gift. I thought that I was slightly confused while reading Hourglass Door.

I’m probably among a albim minority as far as it not being my cup of tea. Once fennifer, we have a case of a love triangle where the outcome is painfully predictable.

The first thing that I thought about Gennifer Albin’s “Crewel” when doing my overall reflective thoughts about it was that I probably should’ve never read it in consideration as a dystopian work in general right after the rather developed and meticulously constructed thematic of “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline.
