I’m always on the lookout for some good science fiction, and The Tesla Legacy caught my eye. Not only did I meet the author at YALC last year, it’s a YA sci-fi novel set in a modern high school that sounded so much fun. I whipped through this book incredibly quickly -- it’s a perfect read-it-in-a-day book.
I’ve been reading so much fantasy lately and I’ve had a craving for some great sci-fi. Enter This Splintered Silence -- a book I had heard nothing about until I had the opportunity to request a copy. I’m so glad I took a chance on this novel -- it is a fast paced sci-if thriller that will delight fans of Lauren James’ The Loneliest Girl in the Universe.
Brandon Sanderson is an author I trust completely. I will buy every single one of his books because I know I will like them. When I heard that he was writing his very first science fiction novel, I was so incredibly excited. My expectations for this novel were sky high (heh) and I have to say that Spensa and the gang absolutely smashed those expectations.
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Steven Erikson's newest book, Rejoice, a Knife to the Heart. This thrilling sci-fi novel is out in UK stores today! I'm so pleased to be able to share an extract from the book on publication day -- take a peek below.
When I requested a copy of Planetfall, I assumed I was going to get a standard ‘humans colonize a planet, things go wrong’ science fiction book -- which is great, don't get me wrong. However, Planetfall turned out to be one of the most unexpected, brilliant, and compelling sci-fi books I’ve ever read.
So I have been reading a lot lately. Seriously, a lot. And while I’ve been trying to dedicate myself to writing a review for every single book I read, that’s just not really possible. Sometimes, regardless of my feelings for a book, I just can’t quite come up with a full-length review! This is neither a good thing nor a bad thing -- it just means I can sum up my feelings quickly.
So if you’ve seen my Beginner’s Guide to Science Fiction, you’ll know that I love The Martian. It was the book that really got me into reading sci-fi and it holds a very special place in my heart. So when I heard that Andy Weir was coming out with a new book, I was so incredibly excited. My expectations for Artemis were high, and I’m so happy to say that they were surpassed.
