#LastSunReadalong Week 2: Chapters 5-8

Posted 23rd November 2019 by Sia in Promos, Queer Lit / 0 Comments

I had a lot of fun livetweeting this section, and you can find the thread here, but now it’s time for the weekly recap! Chapter 5 opens with us getting a little more of a glimpse of how Rune and Brand’s normal, day-to-day life goes; Rune likes to sleep in, and Brand is apparently the […]

I honestly can’t […]

The second in the Love Has Claws series, Burial Club is set in the same world as Nine Years of Silver, but slightly earlier in the timeline, in a different place and with different characters. None of this disappointed me, since Nine perfectly encapsulated Briar and Quinn’s story; a direct sequel, or any other continuation […]
