This is going to be a small post to announce that I have decided to take a blog hiatus. Due to increasing workload, I am unable to devote time to blogging, as of now. Also, for the past few weeks (due to increase in workload), I have read only a few books. For a blog focused primarily on book reviews, this means nothing to write about. ☹ Further, I am increasingly finding it difficult to do networking, and blog-hopping due to paucity of time.
Once pressure on work front decreases to some extent, following which I can again start reading books, I will be back. Hopefully, this will be a short hiatus for a month.

to my first author Q&A. I have been wanting to do them for quite some time
but couldn’t since I’m a big
procrastinator. Nevertheless, let’s dive into this feature.
I’m interviewing indie author Sacha T.Y. Fortuné. I liked her debut
contemporary romance novel, Climbing The
Walls, very much. Her characters and their struggles are still deeply
entrenched in my mind.
Please feel free to check out my review of Climbing The Wallshere.

The Revolutionist by Robert Tucker
That’s how Luther Baggot, a bounty hunter assassin, slays his victims. Baggot is after a list containing the names of influential social democrats who fled Otto von Bismarck’s tyrannical regime.
Two of these families are the Josephsons from Sweden and the Wohlman brothers from Germany, both of whom took refuge in America. The Josephsons settle on a farm in Minnesota, and the Wohlman brothers establish a successful business in Chicago.
Unfortunately, Baggot tracks down Olaf and Ingrid Josephson and kills them. Consequently, the Josephson children, Newt and Julie, are forced to flee. They hide in a logging camp up north and ultimately land in St. Cloud. There they meet Matias Bauman alias Heinrich Wohlman, a former friend of the Josephsons. He takes them to Chicago, an unfamiliar world to them, where they are plunged headlong into the bedlam of urban politics and the violence of their past.
