Excuse me, I seem to have lost the entire month of May. Seriously, where did May go? I feel like April lasted forever and now the universe is trying to correct itself by moving at warp speed through May. Just me? Maybe? Okay. I've been reading quite a lot lately, but it doesn't necessarily reflect in my progress because I've been a little firmer about DNFing books! Take a look at my week is reading below.
I make no secret of the fact that Emma Newman is one of my favourite authors. I absolutely loved the first two books in her Planetfall series, Planetfall and After Atlas, so I had faith in the fact that I’d also love Before Mars. Each Planetfall book is a little different, and Before Mars is no exception with its gripping psychological thriller plot. I ended up absolutely adoring this book and falling back in love with the sci-fi genre, which I have been neglecting for a long time.
As soon as I heard about Do You Dream of Terra-Two? I knew it would be the exact kind of book I love. I went into this debut sci-fi novel with high expectations and they were surpassed. A beautiful, thought-provoking story of mankind’s first manned interstellar mission, Do You Dream of Terra-Two? will haunt you long after the last page.
Happy Friday! This month has been a bit wild so far, but at least I've had plenty of time for reading! I've been so busy these days. I'm ramping up my Bookstagram activity, filming videos like crazy, watching ungodly amounts of RuPaul's Drag Race, and have been making progress on my most anticipated book of the year. Basically, I'm ready for a nap.
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.
I am not shy about shouting out my love of Emma Newman’s Planetfall -- it is easily one of the best books that I’ve read this year. I have been looking forward to reading After Atlas ever since I finished up Planetfall, but I just hadn’t found the time until this summer. After Atlas is not a direct sequel to Planetfall, rather it is a companion novel set in the same universe, but it did not disappoint.
July was a crazy month for me. Not only was I incredibly busy with starting a new job, coming back from holiday, going on holiday again, and then going to YALC, but I also acquired and read so many books! I’m not going to break these down like I usually do becuase this post will be impossibly long if I do, so feel free to chat with me in the comments!
