Posted May 4, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 13 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An awesome sci-fi concept with limitless possibilities, with plenty of action and emotion to make this a novella you won’t want to miss. “I know what side of the street I like better. But you don’t always get to choose the side of the street you walk on.” ~ Tony Valdez This may […]

The nitty-gritty: Higher stakes, terrifying alien robots, and plenty of human drama as well, I thoroughly enjoyed this follow-up to Sleeping Giants. I had a blast reading Sleeping Giants last year, and despite some issues with the format, I enjoyed Neuvel’s original take on the alien invasion story. If you haven’t read Sleeping Giants, the […]

Posted March 21, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 20 Comments

The nitty-gritty: Biting humor and politics collide in Scalzi’s latest, a fast-paced trip through space. Within two days, Kiva was within five million marks of going into the black for the trip. “I’m a fucking financial genius,” she said, to Captain Blinnikka, back on the Yes, Sir. “Or you’re war profiteering,” Blinnikka said. “I’m not […]

STAR’S END by Cassandra Rose Clarke – Review

STAR’S END by Cassandra Rose Clarke – Review
Posted March 13, 2017 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 18 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A thought-provoking family saga set far in the future, with corporate intrigue, secrets and plenty of finely drawn relationships between children and their parents. Star’s End was not the Cassandra Rose Clarke book I was expecting. But then again, I didn’t really have any expectations when I started, other than I knew that […]

GEMINA by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – Review

GEMINA by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – Review
Posted December 26, 2016 by Tammy in 5 stars, Reviews / 6 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A feast for the eyes, Gemina surpasses Illuminae in both story and format. This is one science fiction series you need to be reading! According to Goodreads, I finished Gemina on December 7th, which was about three weeks ago. Due to life-stuff, I haven’t posted any reviews since then, which I feel terrible […]

Posted November 29, 2016 by Tammy in 4 stars, Reviews / 7 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An fantastic, action-packed follow-up to Time Salvager, full of complex characters and relationships, and yes, some time travel! I’m always happy to read a Wesley Chu book, especially since he’s the author of one of my favorite science fiction series, the Tao books. And I always love when a favorite author ventures out and […]
