What I did not expect was science fiction revolving around space and the universe to delve so deep into philosophy, feelings and those nuances that makes humans…well, human.
If there were ever a book I were to recommend on mental health, teenage angst and real feelings – this would be it. Eliza And Her Monsters is a breath of fresh air.

I waited for this book with such excitement and bought the e book because I had literally no patience to wait for even a day for this to get delivered. A dragon alive in Louisiana who loves Vodka Martinis and Netflix? HELL YEAH!
Amidst the ongoing pandemic, this book can trigger a lot of anxiety for those who may be sensitive at this stage.

Neil is pure genius. Back in school, in art class, we would draw with a pencil, outline it with a black sketchpen, and then colour it. Neil does the same. He outlines reality with fiction, with borders of a surreal world that comes to life as you move ahead looking at this piece of art.
The best one I read in January that left me with a book hangover for a little longer than expected – The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
