[Arc Review] The Martian by Andy Weir

Uncategorized 0 Comments

06 August

Hated it. It was a push to get through most of this book. I had to really dedicate myself and my willpower to the task. Unfortunate, because there were so many glowing reviews for this book. Guess I’m the odd duck. If you enjoy long, tedious descriptions of jury rigged science, I suppose this book is for you. I couldn’t handle it after awhile. Even when there reached a point where we weren’t forever in Watney’s head, it only held appeal for a little bit. This book is dull, despite that Mark Watney has everything going wrong for him and… Read more »

There was this one time Ann Aguirre was giving away books if you signed up for her email newsletter and this was the only book on the list that I hadn’t read or didn’t own. It includes her short story Thistle and Thorn, which I’ve seen her tweet about people demanding more from that universe. I figured it’s about time to see what the fuss is about. Dawn of Eden (4.5 stars) The first novella in the book is by Julie Kagawa, whom, wait for it, I’ve never read a single thing from. Gasp! I know! How did that happen?… Read more »

[ARC Review] God’s Daughter

30 March

As vikings are my heritage and in my blood, this was a must pick up for me, and it was an enjoyable read. The book begins with our protagonist Gudrid, witnessing the death of her mother by hanging as a sacrifice to Thor. Immediately, we are acquainted with Gudrid’s hatred of Thor for this loss, and her inspiration to reject Viking myth and lore in favor of the Christian religion. Very briefly, the events of Gudrid’s adolescent life are extrapolated- after the death of her mother, her father soon followed and so she was taken in and trained by a volva (viking… Read more »
