There is something about Young Adult Sci-fi / Dystopian series like Divergent, the Hunger Games, the 5th Wave, that appeal to me more than anything else.
Whisper by Lynette Noni was an unexpected page-turner that kept me awake at nights. What can you not like in a book full of political manipulations, secret governmental facilities, special abilities, and hidden experiments?!

In this epic continuation to «Nyxia», following the events of the first book, Emmett Atwater and his crew have landed on the planet of Eden. But not under the circumstances they were hoping for. Their instructions were simple – play nice and extract Nyxia in great quantities, something they were trained to do on Genesis 11 spaceship.
Lies, intrigues, secrets, and betrayals continue in this sequel, as the crew tries to figure out their new alliances and set their allegiances. Continue reading “Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen | 5 Cool Things to use NYXIA for!”
I remember the first time I read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and how curious I was to discover and learn more about Art, Novels and obscure references used by the author.
This same feeling hit me when I was reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. When so much work goes into one novel, it is impossible to not want to learn more, to understand all of the references and to “educate” yourself on all of the 80s pop culture present in the book.

There were a few books this year that I picked up because of their amazing-sounding Blurb. New Earth and Old Earth, Sci-fi and Dystopian, this new perfect life where noone can ever harm you, where there are no crimes, no illnesses, no hunger. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations.
This keeps happening to me over and over again, and I’m starting to doubt my ability to choose good books for myself. Maybe I’m being particularly picky or maybe I am making poor choices. Or the blurbs tend to lie more often than not! Continue reading “The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller | How dangerous your emotions can be?”
That is correct! I read what turned out to be one of the best Sci-fi books I’ve ever had a chance to get my hands on! Even though I read this back in June of this year (Thank you NetGalley and Crown Books for the ARC!), I still cannot stop thinking about it. Continue reading “Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!”
This must have been the book I was the most excited about this year. It’s all about gaming, hackers and virtual reality! The synopsis sounded very interesting, especially for someone like me, who loves video games.
Unfortunately, this was one of those stories where the romance ruined the whole experience and made me sigh and cringe multiple times throughout. Continue reading “Warcross by Marie Lu | Clichés, romance and advanced technology”
Never have I ever… read a sci-fi book THAT good!
Never have I ever… heard about anything similar!
Never have I ever… seen such an unconventional story-telling!
The list can go on! If you read «Illuminae» before, why don’t you join the game in the comments down below?
I knew I would love this novel, however I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did and I was slightly worried about the way the story is told, a little bit apprehensive that I won’t be able to connect with the characters. But fear not! It was truly a unique reading experience that I intend to repeat as soon as possible – «Gemina» will be just as great!
