A great sci-fi comedy series with a POC protagonist. This book has me not only looking up Spanish-to-English translations, but researching astronomy as well!

My fist novel from Jennifer L. Armentrout under the J. Lynn moniker… I think it turned into a bit of a hate-read. The about quote just about sums up the tone and humour of the book.
There are six books in this franchise, so I’m hoping things will improve the further in the the series I get. Has anyone else read these books?
I’ve always achieved the greatest things when I’m conquering a fear. Sometimes its warning us about danger, sometimes its holding us back.
Glad I got to re-visit the universe of the initial Legend trilogy. This time we follow Day/Daniel and is little brother Eden. A great addition to the franchise.
This quote resounds with so much truth – I love anything that challenges toxic masculinity.
I glimpsed back at some of the books I was obsessed with 10-15 years ago, some of them still stand up, some of them are cringe, and some feel very tone deaf… how do you feel writing has changed in the last ten years, and how has your reading tastes changed?
I loved the stark depiction of survival in this duology – McGinnis was not afraid to embrace the dark side of human nature.
When I think about this novel in perspective of gun ownership – how it is an essential tool for survival; and then hear about the awful and devastating shootings in the United States, it makes me question what the role of a gun is in that country… is it a status symbol? Power and control? It’s rarely seen here in Australia. The only times I’ve seen gun use outside of law enforcement was for things like culling and farm management.
Loving this series of panels comparing the graphic novels to the television show and how the mood is identical. Such a triumph!
Couldn’t resist slipping this last one in… Kit Connor has undergone such a transformation for the character.
I’m not a big fan of fantasy novels with angels, but I do like the idea of being able to fly and the freedom it evokes.
What has been your favourite depictions of angels in a novel? So far mine has been The Mortal Instruments.
I feel like this quote spans a lifetime – in the beginning we’re eager for connection, to be understood; and then we want to leave our mark on the world, pass down a legacy.
What is your biggest dream about leaving a great achievement behind? Mine’s to have my published works (and my Mother’s posthumously.)
To be honest, I did not expect such a poignant quote to come out of ‘The Hating Game‘ but here we are.
What is the latest novel that surprised you? Have you seen the movie adaptation of ‘The Hating Game‘ yet – what did you think?
