The 2014 Science Fiction Experience

I’m not your biggest expert in science fiction, not having read most of the bests. So undecided as I was about what to read for The 2014 Science Fiction Experience, which has begun already this month, I downloaded all the free science fiction short stories and novellas available on my phone. So far, I’ve readContinue reading “The 2014 Science Fiction Experience”

The First Bird: Episode 3 by Greig Beck

Read the reviews of Episode 1 and Episode 2. Trust me when I tell you, this is one series you don’t want to miss. Following the events of Episode 2, the team is now back in LA, where all hell has broken loose, with the infection now being air-borne. On their way to safety, theyContinue reading “The First Bird: Episode 3 by Greig Beck”

Under the Dome by Stephen King

I never actually believed I’d finish reading Under the Dome in the time decided for the read-a-long, but it seemed like a good idea to try. I’ve discovered, though, that I don’t really like read-a-longs. Recording my opinions about the book every few hundred pages in a little blue diary, I realized that they fluctuatedContinue reading “Under the Dome by Stephen King”

Champions of Power (Age of the Aura # 1) by Samuel Odunsi Jr.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Summary: “There was no other name for the Blessed Galaxy. After being gifted with the Auras, five great powerhouses of celestial creation, the title was a suitable fit. While harnessing such energies, the governing bodies have ruled their respected reaches of the GalaxyContinue reading “Champions of Power (Age of the Aura # 1) by Samuel Odunsi Jr.”

The Babi Makers by Christopher Geoffrey McPherson

I got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This was probably the most absurd book I have read in a while. I’m still debating whether it was absurd in a good way. I loved the cover of the book – how very science fiction-ey. It immediately grabbed my attention. You knowContinue reading “The Babi Makers by Christopher Geoffrey McPherson”

The Calcutta Chromosome: A Novel of Fevers, Delirium & Discovery by Amitav Ghosh

I wasn’t sure if The Calcutta Chromosome was science fiction, until I read that it won the Arthur C. Clarke award. It is a fictionalized account of Sir Ronald Ross’s breakthrough in the research regarding the cause and cure of malaria. Summary: The novel opens in the future and we are introduced to Antar (and Ava,Continue reading “The Calcutta Chromosome: A Novel of Fevers, Delirium & Discovery by Amitav Ghosh”

The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury

I never thought I’d call a science fiction book… beautiful. But that was just me being judgmental, because this collection was really just beautiful. I can’t think of any other word to describe it. Actually I can, it was very original, every story was unique and every story was more than just ‘robots and spaceContinue reading “The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury”

Wheels by Lorijo Metz

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. About the book: WHEELS by Lorijo Metz is a sci-fi adventure filled with mystery and romance; a coming-of-age tale that proves it takes more than super powers to save a planet. Summary: McKenzie Wu stumbles upon a portal, transporting her and herContinue reading “Wheels by Lorijo Metz”

Just a couple of Stephen King books

I discovered Stephen King only over two years ago (it’s sad, I know), fell in love with horror fiction and read a whole lot of his books in a very short time. Then I took a two-year-long hiatus from Stephen King (I talked about him a lot but only read a couple of books hereContinue reading “Just a couple of Stephen King books”

Stephen King’s 11.22.63 – A long overdue review/rant

I have been putting off publishing this review for so long. It’s just been lying in my drafts and I have read it time and again, wondering why it just doesn’t seem right. You know, it’s difficult to write a review that does justice to such a long book – long, not only because ofContinue reading “Stephen King’s 11.22.63 – A long overdue review/rant”
