Recap: January 2017

Oh man, nothing motivates me more than setting my new Goodreads reading challenge goal and starting new spreadsheets (yes, there are multiple, not just one). So I finally put an end to the reading slump and read all them books.

All them books

January was a CRAZY reading month because I started SO MANY books and didn’t end up finishing as much as I could have. which sounds wrong considering the amount of books I did finish BUT that’s just due to all the audiobooks I managed to listen to (which don’t take up any of my usual reading time).

Top Ten Favorite Comics

Top Ten Tuesday

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I’m trying really hard (but fail) not to get too much into comics and limit myself in the number of series I read because comics = $$$. So there aren’t that many comics/series to choose from yet but the ones that made the list are THE BEST because they were the chosen ones, deserving all my money.

Top Ten Hidden Gems of 2016

Top Ten Tuesday

Making lists of underrated books is always kind of hard because you gotta look outside your social bubble and consider if they really are as under-hyped as they seem (because spoiler: they often aren’t. The times I’ve seen Chaos Walking called under-hyped… LMAO).

Review: Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I received this book for free from the publisher. This did not affect my opinion or the content of this review.

Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2)

by ,

Published:

Summary

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

Review: The Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley

The Stars Are Legion

by

Published:

Summary

Somewhere on the outer rim of the universe, a mass of decaying world-ships known as the Legion is traveling in the seams between the stars. For generations, a war for control of the Legion has been waged, with no clear resolution. As worlds continue to die, a desperate plan is put into motion.

Zan wakes with no memory, prisoner of a people who say they are her family. She is told she is their salvation – the only person capable of boarding the Mokshi, a world-ship with the power to leave the Legion. But Zan’s new family is not the only one desperate to gain control of the prized ship. Zan finds that she must choose sides in a genocidal campaign that will take her from the edges of the Legion’s gravity well to the very belly of the world.

Zan will soon learn that she carries the seeds of the Legion’s destruction – and its possible salvation. But can she and her ragtag band of followers survive the horrors of the Legion and its people long enough to deliver it?
