A super short story that mostly follows the mental health effects of events from Exit Strategy on one particular character and, of course, the ways in which Murderbot helps. I adore Murderbot and am excited to read Network Effect soon.

#Audible SALE! Only on sale for another 36 hours. I set aside 6 to look at after work. Most categories have 2 pages so it‘s a quick lookyloo. The books seem to be under my $7.50 sweet spot and quite a bit are under $5.

I made peanut buns and an extremely unhealthy cappuccino to use up the last of the half-and-half. Now I‘m gonna see how I like A PSALM FOR THE WILD-BUILT. #gaymay

Mimi28 I‘m interested to know what you think. I bought that book because the reviews said it‘s supposed to be like a “big hug” lol. I never read it though. 6h

“Science fiction is not predictive; it is descriptive.

Predictions are uttered by prophets (free of charge), by clairvoyants (who usually charge a fee, and are therefore more honoured in their day than prophets), and by futurologists (salaried). Prediction is the business of prophets, clairvoyants, and futurologists. It is not the business of novelists. A novelist‘s business is lying.”

This was such an enjoyable, fun read. I often can tell how much I‘m enjoying an ebook by how often I check the page number and I was a third of the way in before I even looked at how long the book was. A lovely cast of diverse and funny characters, and I enjoyed the ending, even if parts were predictable (in a comforting way, not a boring way). I would definitely accept a job with the KPS 🦖.

Another action packed Murderbot novella. In this one, Murderbot is reunited with Dr. Mensah and her team. It has some really sweet, emotional moments (poor Murderbot), but also some great fight scenes. I‘m looking forward to the full-length novel next.

These books are like popcorn. You can‘t read just one. I read the first last May and, for some crazy reason, didn‘t read the rest. Happy to say I have rectified this. I love Murderbot. Their observations on human behavior are the best. We are incredibly predictable creatures that are very fragile physically and emotionally.

My favorite of the series is pictured above. (It was really, really hard to pick a favorite.)

Patchshank Im also making my way through this series and loving it. 1d

An adequate end to a prequel series that left a few too many open ends. For the full review, please visit http://benjamin-m-weilert.com/index.php/2022/05/04/book-earth-awakens-2014/

Meh. Just not my kind of thing. Lots of Doctor Who quotes sans context lumped together by themes. The best lines seem to all be in here along with lines that look suspiciously like they were chose for page layout more so than content. DNF at page 50 because, while book-shaped, this does not fulfill book-want for me.

TheAromaofBooks Books of quotes just never seem to work for me. You can't really sit and read them, and how often do I just need a quote on a random topic?? 😂 1d
Zoes_Human @TheAromaofBooks Yeah, I think I might be the same. i love Doctor Who though, so I thought I‘d try it. 1d
