I saw someone on Twitter review this and it caught my attention, and I'm really glad it did. I loved reading this unique concept and the audiobook was an excellent experience. Apparently it's also going to be a movie featuring Robert Pattinson and that is absolutely the perfect casting. I can't wait to see his take on the very chaotic Mickey.
Tal and I have been rewatching Doctor Who for a few weeks now, so when I saw EMPIRE OF THE WOLF pop up on Netgalley I knew I had to request it. As soon as I was approved, I curled up to read it and it's totally rekindled my love for reading Doctor Who content. As I write this, I'm listening to an anthology of short stories (12 Doctors, 12 Stories) and I've added a dozen more to my tbr. Oops.
I am absolutely obsessed with the cover of this book. It has the perfect vibes, my favourite colours and a tagline that is straight-up irresistible. Unfortunately, CHILLING EFFECT did not live up to my hopes and I was a little disappointed and frustrated that it wasn't quite what I wanted it to be. I was hoping for something like THE LEFT HAND OF DOG or the Becky Chambers series, but that's not what I got.
I was so excited to get a finished copy of this book. Even just looking at the cover had me excited. Mike Chen's BROTHERHOOD is a fantastic story about Obi Wan, Anakin and Padme, and adds depth to their characters while also telling us about that business on Cato Neimoidia.
I read The Forward Collection and followed it up with The Trespass Collection, which I thought was the whole lot. It turns out there's a lot of collections I missed, and The Black Stars Collection is the next one I stumbled across! They're available in ebook and audio via Kindle Unlimited, which is a great deal for lots of interesting short fiction. If you'd like to sign up for Kindle Unlimited, my link is here and at the bottom of this review. This collection is a sci-fi collection by Black authors looking at new worlds.
I read and reviewed THE LEFT HAND OF DOG when it came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So when I was offered a chance to review JUDGEMENT DAVE, I jumped at it. These are strange little favourites of mine, perfect to curl up with and lose myself in for a few hours of sci-fi …
I don’t know what I was expecting from this book, but it wasn’t what I got. What I got was an amazing, light-hearted and fun read that was like reading a bubblegum pop song. I loved every second of it. Even during the tense moments of this book, it stayed hilarious and the tone has me absolutely obsessed with this book. I can’t wait to clear some more of my TBR so I have an excuse to buy more of Scalzi’s work after reading this one.
Okay, I'll admit. I wished for this one before I'd read my copy of The Good Luck Girls, already sure that I'd love them both. And I was right! This is an incredible duology that packs a punch, with a dark and desperate side to the usual heroics of YA dystopia. Rating: 4 stars.
I read The First Sister last year and absolutely adored it. So when a review copy of The Second Rebel landed on my doorstep completely unprompted, I actually kind of lost it a little. I was so excited to get the second instalment in one of my favourite sci-fi series. Rating: 4 stars!
I was emailed a review request for this one, and I couldn't resist the weird sounding summary. I'm so glad I agreed to read it, because this strange sci-fi hit all my found family weak spots. Rating: 4 stars.
