I’m happy to announce that Children of Memory exceeded my expectations and was a wild ride from the front to back. It may not be perfect, but it is a great science fiction novel with signature Tchaikovsky creativity all wrapped in a great philosophical question.

I want to thank MacMillan Audio for the advanced copy of the audiobook via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
I am not sure what I was expecting going into this read but I was beyond surprised and thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
This post will wrap-up each of the books I read, but I’ve also already written Goodreads blurbs and will be posting up Amazon reviews too. Amazon especially is such an important platform for Indie/Self-Pub authors so if you’re not posting reviews on Amazon, I highly recommend doing so at least for the Indie reads. Also these are in order that I read them, not in order I preferred them. All of these books were incredible and I continue to be blown away by each self-pub book I read.
