Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back! If you haven’t read my previous blog post Reading in the Time of Corona – you can click on the link and have a read. Basically I muse what kind of texts (books, audiobooks, comics, manga, magazines) one should look for and what to avoid like the plague. 😀 This is the continuation of that text in which I’m going to give a few lots and lots reading recommendations. Apparently. 😀

Review: The Haunting of Tram Car 015
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to another instalment of Nessa reads and reviews! Today I will review P. Djèlí Clark’s latest book The Haunting of Tram Car 015. If the author’s name sounds familiar and you’re trying to remember if I’ve reviewed something of his before, you’re on the right track (oh God the unintended puns! 😀 ). P. Djèlí Clark’s works have appeared on the blog before: my 1st encounter with his writings was A Dead Djinn in Cairo and the 2nd The Black God’s Drums. I’ve helpfully put the links to my reviews that contain more information about the author, my thoughts on his works (spoiler alert: they’re magnificent and you should go read them as soon as you can) and some photos too (I even used the same bookmark for The Black God’s Drum and The Haunting of Tram Car 015). 🙂
Review: The Black God’s Drums
Hello dear reader(s) and welcome back to the blog! I know it’s been a long time since I reviewed something for you… I have been reading and catching up on my reading, but I’ll write more about this in a dedicated blog post. However, this October I participated in another Dewey’s Readathon (the next one is on April 6th 2019) and that helped me get back in the reading saddle so to speak. 😀 Anyway, for this instalment of Nessa reads and reviews I present P. Djèlí Clark’s The Black God’s Drums. If the author’s name sounds familiar to you, I’ve already reviewed his novelette A Dead Djinn in Cairo on the blog so you can check out that post. If you haven’t read that, well it’s as good a time as any. I’ll wait, we have all the time in the world. 🙂
