Hi my name is Alex. I like books, and talking about them. I have just started a bookish blog:

Review: Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

Kindred - Octavia E. Butler

I can’t recommend this enough. This novel packs a punch even though it stands at only just over 300 pages. It is very insightful when it comes to slavery, race and gender, well written with good pacing which never dragged and I thoroughly enjoyed it. As someone who reads very little adult fantasy/sci-fi, this has definitely been a gateway book for me. I will be sure to check out the rest of her books!
