Winding down after a long day of travelling and nature spotting - today's critters included a snake, several insects, and two million bats 🐍 🐛 I'm also enjoying the crazy paintings on the wall of my room!

#quoteoftheday I've only been reading translated SFF for a year or so, and I'm loving it! Reading a familiar genre from a very different perspective and culture is really quite fascinating. Western scifi tends to be more individualistic and character-driven while Cixin Liu's books focus much more on big plots - the characters are relatively unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

This multi-generational tale of human colonists on an alien world was so close to being a five-star read! The world-building was astonishing, especially the sentient plants, and it was fascinating to watch how society shifted over seven generations. However, there were some annoying bits. The chapters were inconsistent in their tone and some could have been a lot shorter. ⭐⭐⭐ from me as it was an interesting read that dragged at times.

I stayed up far too late to finish this book, and, just - wow. It's a simple story, but it weaves a complex narrative through different perspectives of all the characters, and asks some thorny questions about friendship, small town dreams, and the cost of doing the right thing. Insightful, moving, and very human. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me!

marleed 5 star for me as well! 6d

My weekly update for #BFCr4 I'm pleased with the reading side of things - I finished two books and started a third - but I haven't been to the gym for a few days thanks to a lurgy I picked up from the kids 😷 And, yeah, not snacking has been hard...

Daisy Jones & The Six | Taylor Jenkins Reid

I love Netflix documentaries, so I really liked the set-up of Daisy Jones and the Six with each character telling their version of the story of the rise and fall of the biggest (fictional) band of the Seventies. Full of rock and roll, simmering resentments, and slightly different versions of the story, it was a great read.

Six books down on #TBRbingo with John Scalzi's OLD MAN'S WAR counting as a book set on a spaceship.

Pickpick

It's taken me a while to read this because my heart could only take so much. IF THIS IS A MAN is Primo Levi's account of his time in Auschwitz written in a quiet and matter-of-fact way which makes it much more powerful as he describes how the Lager slowly eradicated his humanity. THE TRUCE describes Primo's Odyssean journey back to Italy which manages to be gently humorous and heartbreaking in a different way as Primo slowly rediscovers himself.

Caroline2 One of my all time favourite books ever. 💖 2mo

Old Man's War | John Scalzi
post image
Pickpick

Military sci-fi is usually not my thing - space battles and square-jawed soldiers tend to bore me. But OLD MAN'S WAR is military sci-fi filled with warmth and humanity and very likeable characters. It also works in humorous musings on getting old and the joys of being young and unstoppable. An enjoyable read!

KtheBookwyrm I enjoy John scalzi and this series in particular, despite not being a big fan of military sci-fi as well. 2mo
rretzler Scalzi is one of my favorite authors and I‘ve read all of his books - except for this series, which I‘ve been putting off because of the military sci-fi aspect. Glad to hear that I will be able to read and enjoy - I should have guessed that would be the case with Scalzi. 2mo
Lucy_Anywhere @KtheBookwyrm and @rretzler thanks, guys. The Collapsing Empire was my first Scalzi book, and I really enjoyed it 2mo
rretzler If you ever listen to Scalzi audiobooks, just a tip to pick the ones with Wil Wheaton as the narrator. He and Scalzi are good friends and Wheaton does a great job with Scalzi‘s humor and sarcasm. My favorite combo for audiobooks! 2mo
wanderinglynn Love this series! ❤️👍🏻 2mo

I'm absolute trash for books like this. They are completely ridiculous and I'm rolling my eyes the whole time, but I love 'em! THE ALCHEMIST'S SECRET is a pretty standard offering with a troubled action man hero and a sexy scientist traipsing around southern France while being chased by evil Catholic priests.

So I loved this but was also a little bored with it..? It was slow and lyrical and beautifully written which, depending on my mood, meant I was either completely absorbed or easily distracted. I loved, however, how the different narratives slowly weave together and I was flicking through the last few chapters desperate to know what happened. Overall, it's a pick but needs to be read in long sittings (and not with a toddler rampaging around!)

My favourite fitness thing is a toss up between the Couch to 5K app and Yoga with Adrienne videos. I'm in a house with five adults, two cats, and an almost-toddler so finding a quiet room for yoga is impossible at the moment! So running it is 😀

A new epic fantasy with lots of classic fantasy vibes, THE EMBER BLADE was a fun read. I really liked that it had a few more shades of grey than you usually find in classic-style fantasy, and I loved how much the main character grew throughout the story. My only niggle is the lack of strong female characters who really affected the story which, sadly, is too often the case with quest fantasies.

twohectobooks I read his YA duology called Malice and it was pretty decent but not mind blowing. Apparently he‘s written this and a ton of other stuff too, which I did not realize! 3mo

I can't finish this book. I tried. I really, really tried but I've given up. The world-building is astonishing and KSR has some really cool ideas about what humanity could look like in three hundred years. But I need more than just cool world-building. Like a plot. And interesting characters. And a protagonist I don't want to punch in the face for being such an immature, selfish, spoilt and downright unlikable human being. Ugh.

twohectobooks Have you read other books by this author? I read The Years of Rice and Salt last year and the more I think about it the more I realize it was a slog but I wanted to like it so bad because of the cool premise. I wonder if all of his books are like that. 3mo
Lucy_Anywhere @twohectobooks This is the only KSR I've read! Like you said, I stuck with it for ages because he has such cool ideas - the main city of Mercury travels on tracks to stay out of the sun for example. And people have so much love for his books... I wanted to like it a lot more than I did 3mo
