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.

ARC Review: The Bastard Legion by Gavin Smith

This is the first book by Gavin Smith that I’ve read, and I’m so happy to say that The Bastard Legion lived up to my hopes and expectations.  It has so many things that I absolutely love: a dark and gritty world, cool and complex technology, morally grey characters, and a butt-kicking leading lady.  This is a tough one to review because I feel like you should really dive in and discover for yourself, but I’ll do my best.
