Microreview of Variant (Variant, #1)

My daughter practically eats books, she reads them so fast. I’ve always loved books and, as a kid, I never went anywhere without one in my hand or tucked away somewhere. Nowadays, for fun the two of us will go out for coffee (hot chocolate for her) and snacks and to read. Usually, I read an adult book, but last weekend I decided to use books to connect with my daughter another way, and that’s by reading what she reads. Also, though I’m not actively writing atm, I figured doing this would give me a feel for YA books, as I just may one day give the genre a go. So, we went off to the library and borrowed a ton of books. Variant, by Robison Wells, is one of them.

Re-Wired – by Greg Dragon (featuring Dyane Forde) for One Breath Books

I interviewed Ned Hayes, author of Sinful Folk, a while back. Months later, I got an email from him with a very interesting offer:  Would I like to contribute to “A book podcast with very quick reviews of books. One Breath for each book…”

Say what?

Well, I gave it a shot and here it is! You can read the full written review here.
