Science Fiction

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I’ll be the first to admit that this book is completely out of my comfort zone. I have never read a book about virtual reality. In fact, I’ve never even played a video game. It’s not like I have avoided these things on purpose. Growing up, my parents bought me a lot of books and dolls. But video games were…

I’ve never read anything by this author, but he is definitely well known for his other works. After hearing so many positive things about Clines’ other books, I decided to give this ARC a go.

Science Fiction

Artemis by Andy Weir

I received this novel as an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Andy Weir’s novel, The Martian, did so well that it was adapted to a movie.

Romance, Science Fiction, YA Fiction

Select by Marit Weisenberg

I received this novel as an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Sometimes, all I really want is to read some YA fiction. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen very often given my work and my looooong TBR list. Happily, this was one of the novels on that list so I could shoot two birds with one stone!…
