The Haunting of Tram Car 015

I’d checked this one out of the library a few months ago and never got around to it before another hold got placed on it, so I had to bring it back.

I read Joukhadar's first novel, The Map of Salt and Stars, a few years ago and LOVED IT. It made my Top Ten Reads of 2019 list, actually. So, I was freaking PSYCHED to see his second novel get published. And, this cover is gorgeous. That's about all I have to say about this "I knew… Continue reading The Thirty Names of Night
