Good afternoon, friends! Sorry this is a bit late, My fibromyalgia is acting up so I was napping a lot. Anyway, I’m skipping ahead to talk about a book I was sent to review, They Called Me Wyatt that will be released June 2019 from California Coldblood Books, an imprint of Rare Bird Books.
I finished this on March 23rd, but after this I will be going back to my February reads and review in order I read them just like before.
About the author and book: Natasha Tynes is a Jordanian-American award winning author of the speculative book They Called Me Wyatt. This murder mystery is set in Jordan and the US. The book shines a light on issues of immigration, identity, love, and the constant need to fit in a foreign land (Goodreads).

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
First, I have to say as a murder mystery I didn’t see coming who done it. I’m very glad that my guess was so wrong, haha. The whole concept I thought was very interesting and what kept me intrigued the whole time. I really appreciated the representation of panic attacks and mental health. As someone who suffers from panic attacks it’s nice to see shown in books. I also enjoyed when the main characters were in Jordan, I so love reading about a different setting from which I live. I was very much touched reading about Siwar’s negative experiences as a woman in Jordan, along with the good experiences.
For constructive criticism, I would have liked to see the people suffering from mental health to have gotten help, but I can see why one of them wasn’t.
I highly recommend it if you like murder mysteries! I can’t wait to get myself a finish copy in June!
As always, thanks for reading!
