Book Review: The Tesla Legacy by K. K. Pérez

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.

Book Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

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.

Blog Tour: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

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.

Review: Planetfall by Emma Newman

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.

Flash Reviews: Science Fiction Classics

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.

ARC Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

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.
