The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller | How dangerous your emotions can be?

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?”

Nyxia by Scott Reintgen | Simply one of the best Sci-fis I’ve ever read!

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.

Siberia 56 by Christophe Bec, Alexis Sentenac | An injection of Sci-fi with beautiful illustrations

This was my first ever graphic book from Netgalley. Thank you for the free ARC! Although, a note to my future self: “Do not download graphic books on Kindle, even when it is an available format!” It was definitely a struggle to read.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff | Immersive and unconventionally written Sci-fi you MUST read!

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!

The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman | 6 Reasons why time-travelling books are the best!

Reading time-travelling book is like mixing all of your favourite food together and devouring them in one go (i.e. pizza with mashed potatoes and with tiramisu, it might sound disgusting but when it comes to books, it’s a true pleasure!)

This story has combined romance, fantasy and historical fiction in one huge pot and served it at once on a silver platter. Isn’t that amazing? Continue reading “The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman | 6 Reasons why time-travelling books are the best!”
