The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

I'd heard the title before, but decided to read The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet for Read Harder's task 23. I have to admit that the title is intriguing but I hadn't considered it my kind of sci-fi before. Not that I can really categorize what my kind of sci-fi is, I just... Continue Reading →

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, translated by Anthea Bell

Stars: 4 of 5 I have to admit that I was spellbound by this book almost as soon as I started it. The prologue has just the touch of mystery that intrigues me and then the story never loosened it's grip. This is actually one of the quickest books I've listened to, finding any excuse...

United: An Alienated Novel by Melissa Landers

Review:  United is the final book of the Alienated series by Melissa Landers. As a whole, the series has been fun, even though the love story is a bit nauseatingly adorable at times. It's the world building that really makes the series worth reading. As you might remember from Alienated and Invaded, there is much more at stake... Continue Reading →

The Breaking Light by Heather Hanson

Review: This is a fun little Romeo and Juliet story. I know, fun and Romeo and Juliet story don't really belong in the same sentence, but trust me here. It's pretty obvious from the description that I had read on Amazon that it was going to go this way too, but it's not entirely predictable... Continue Reading →

The Girl in the Road by Monica Byrne

Review:  This was a really weird story set in the near future. I liked it, but it was really weird. The protagonist, Meena, is a woman on the run and quite disturbed. It's told in the first person with time jumps between Meena and another woman who predates her, Miriama. The narrative seems confusing at... Continue Reading →

Zodiac by Romina Russell

Review: I'll be honest, I was with this book for about the first three quarters of it. And then it lost me. Actually, I was really enjoying it, despite the typical YA love triangle and a nobody who becomes the last hope of civilization. It's YA, I get it. (Disclaimer: I LOVE young adult books,...

Bloodchild and other Stories by Octavia E. Butler

Review: This is the first of Butler's work that I've read, or listened to in this case. The narrator is Janina Edwards. I listened to it on the Prime Channel "Worlds Away: Sci-Fi Classics" and am so glad I saw it there. I decided to make this my Task 22 for Read Harder 2017, Read... Continue Reading →

Invaded by Melissa Landers

Review: This is the second book of the Alienated Series, for the review of the first book, click here. Now on to what this one is about: Cara always knew life on planet L'eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L'eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two... Continue Reading →

Alienated by Melissa Landers

Review: I enjoyed listening to this book, but I didn't fall in love with it. All the characters are well written and the dual point of view was great, but it was definitely a YA story. There are some YAs that have appeal for all ages, but some are really meant to be read and... Continue Reading →
