3.5There are so few "Aladdin" retellings out there, and so this wasn't quite the retelling I wanted it to be.What I would like is a retelling that really delves into the potential historical and cultural setting of the original tale, sticking fairly close to the bones of the story because that hasn'...

I am so glad I requested to read this sneak peak. I cannot express how much this book has my attention and I seriously cannot wait...

Vitro -- Jessica Khoury Book 2 of Corpus **This book can be read as a stand-alone apart from the first book in the series, Origin. In fact, there is some dialogue alluding to the South American facilities, another research group owned by the fictional company of Corpus, which, if I'm not mistaken...
