I needed a new non-fiction memoir to break up my diet of science fiction, contemporary, and fantasy (paranormal) and what better way to add in some flavour that a book written by a comedian. I’m going into this blind, so I don’t know what to expect… do you pick up the odd book out of your favoured reading genres? Give some recommendations, I love finding a new read.
I loved this book so much!! A gorgeous cover and lightning fast pacing bring this diverse sci-fi to expert level!
Finally finished this quartet early last year after constantly getting distracted by shiny new books. I’ve got the latest release ‘The Darkest Legacy’ following Zu on my TBR shelf ready to conquer soon… a dystopian world where kids have X-men type powers and labelled outcasts and threats. Such a great concept; pity the film adaptation didn’t get past the first book.
A gorgeous cover with representation of non-neurotypical, POC, and queer characters that was a little polarising for me, but a fun and interesting read. Review to come soon…
Have you read any good book representing a minority lately that you want to recommend?
It’s been a very long while since I have read anything middle grade but wanted to give this series a chance: an action adventure sci-fi series that had a great cover design. Reminded me of Tin Tin in Space.
Plus I couldn’t resist featuring my puppy Buster – he likes to cuddle with me when I read.
Decided to tackle another title from Phil Stamper – promising cute queer contemporary romance. And I’m just in the mood for this type of read!
I’ve fallen in love with Murderbot and this series… it’s one of the best sci-fi collection I’ve read in a while. Still have The Expanse series lined up to tackle next, but does anyone have some great recommendations for awesome sci-fi series?
I started reading the BrainShip series in my teens and was a massive fan of Anne McCaffery… recently discovered there was another book in the collection that had slipped under my radar. Are there any books in series that have gotten published without you knowing? I’m going to have to go through my back catalogue and ensure nothing else has slipped through the cracks.
I have to read more Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner! And this adventure duology seems just the ticket!
