A mini-haul around the lamp that I finally painted green to fit into my room decoration. I'm proud of my finished DIY project, and looking forward to these books

The last book of a nice Page-Turner Series that I didn't want to stop reading.

Now it's official, I have to finish this page-turner series before reading anything else. I wish they would make a tv series out of these books.

I wanted to like this, after all it's one if those classic sci-fi books that are often recomended, but I'm DNFing this after 46 pages. The two human characters are so outdatted and cliché, their dialogue was probably OK when the book was published, but nowadays there are better books to read.

Last Command is a spin-off prequel story with Leonidas as the Main Character. Quite entertaining.

This is the second book on the Fallen Empire series and it was an entertaining page-turner like the first book. So I'm definitely binge reading this series and reading the first three books in less than a week. 😉

This is a mixture of romance with space opera, where imo the insta-love was taking too much over the plot. So I won't be reading the rest of the series so soon.

Star Nomad, the first book in this series was full of action, and included a captain full of jokes, a moody cyborg, a pessimistic engineer and space pirates! What's not to like?

Even with an interesting premise, this was too confusing and rushed-up for me to like it. It would probably improve with a revision and a rewrite. #reviewathon I would like to thank #Netgalley and Independent Book Publishers Association for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book in this awesome YA trilogy with desert setting and Arabic mythology. It reminds me of City of Brass, but imo this is even better. #nightoriented #Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Suicide Club: A Novel | Rachel Heng

The premise here was interesting, but its narrative was very much slice-of-life, which isn't my favorite narrative style, and very slow-paced. I consider it #genrebusting because it was literary slice-of-life and dystopian science fiction. #Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

BarbaraTheBibliophage Sounds like a good fit for the prompt. Sorry it wasn‘t a better book. 👊🏻📚♥️ 2mo
LeticiaToraci It was very well writen, so I would recommend it to anyone who likes character-driven dystopia which is not the "people walk through a wasted scenery" type. 2mo

A wonderful tale of the desert, with so many important underlying themes and a compeling story. I'll be surely following this series. The "Goodreads Choice Winner of 2016" prize this book has won is completely deserved.

This was interesting, only the writing style was at times a tiring narration, reminding me of a fairy tale. I'm still in doubt about following this series.

This book may seem exaggerated in its dystopian vision but is it really so? I look at our world and encounter uncomfortable similarities. #Booked2019 #SocialMediaFocus @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Cinfhen It was a little too close for comfort but I hated how Eggers made the MC such a dishrag 😬 4mo
LeticiaToraci @Cinfhen I think that the style of writing had a bit of magical realism to it, for example, when Mae met that old couple on the barge it was as if she was meeting her parents who were hiding after the circle was completed. Many thing seemed to be made intentionally for symbolic reasons, one of them being Mae's utter lack of consciousness. 4mo
Cinfhen I honestly wasn‘t reading so intently... I missed a lot of those nuances😬 4mo
LeticiaToraci When I like a book I usually have theories about it, if they are correct or the right way to interpret the book Idk, but I often imagine them. 😉 4mo
LeticiaToraci The film finished very different from the book. I don't know if it was better, to me it seemed like a forced happy ending. 4mo
