A Burning by Megha Majumdar – Thoughts

Bookish Discussion: Keeping in form with my change of review style, here’s my first question to readers. What do you call a genre that is fiction, but could also be non-fiction.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood – Thoughts

Book Discussion: How did you find The Testaments in comparison to The Handmaid’s Tale? I really respect Margaret Atwood as an author and I do think she deserved the Booker Award.
