Out tomorrow!! Skin by Ilka Tampka – one of my favourite books and only re-read of 2015

Book Reviews, Book Thoughts, Recommended, Writing


I already reviewed this book back in March, but as it’s coming out tomorrow and I like it so much I wanted to give it a bit more attention! It was a marvellous and mesmerising book that drew me in like books I used to read as a child or teen. With a convincing and invigoratingly new world to explore, interesting characters, well sustained mysteries and beautiful writing.
