The Fold by Peter Clines

This book was a riveting story about a rift in space, a fold that can help people teleport and go between dimensions at a moments notice. It is a book that delves into a fantasy we all have dreamt of as a child. It goes through wild adventures and keep you enthralled throughout the entire book. The author, Peter Clines, has written several other amazing books that I have enjoyed so I had no doubt that he would be just as amazing in this book as well. I love the sense of adventure and imagination that we all were captivated by as children and he embodies it through his writing. I found myself stuck back in the shoes of my 8 year old self wondering what the universe was possible of doing and how I could see the magic of the world around me.

Eleanor by Jason Gurley

This was a heartbreaking novel about loss and the battle that comes with depression that gives us all a beautiful glimpse into a family's journey of healing. Everything is sad and broken at first and we slowly gather speed and then all at once you're in this rabbit hole of surprises and trying to figure out what is going on while keeping up with who is who and suddenly you find yourself putting this puzzle together and you are almost on the edge of seeing the big picture. It was wonderful in all aspects and really left you with thought provoking questions and a heart full of bittersweet love. I was utterly blown away and dumbfounded by this novel and the concept he presented of a rift in time.
