The character arcs that our main four went through was wonderful. None of the main characters got out unscathed but they learned so much along the way. Not to knock Ana but I still found the chapters from the boys to be far more interesting to read. These kids are beautifully complex and I love them for it. There is one major question unanswered and I have feeling about that. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

A Canticle for Leibowitz | Walter M. Miller

This sci-fi classic is still on my TBR, at the heart of it is an argument about the innate destructiveness of #humannature I'm not saying I completely agree with Miller, I'm not saying I don't either...

I, Robot | Isaac Asimov

Mehso-so

sadly parts of Asimov's writing are too tedious for my tastes but I was absolutely not expecting for him to have such a dry sense of humor throughout parts of this book and make what are effectively programming jokes 😅 still this was an interesting read if nothing else

All in all I enjoyed the book. I begin liking the characters, even though they're not an outburst of creativity. But I still wondered what would happen next to them and cared about all of them.

Still, there's a HUGE point I just can't oversee: If you wake up 200 years in the future you don't just blend in like Aurora did. A person from 1820 waking up in 2020 won't just go and say “Oh, what a lovely I-Pad you got there.“ Nope.

Finished this just at sunset on my last full day in the Azores. 5 million stars for the reading location, ~4 stars for the book. A lovely standalone sci-fi/fantasy set on a colonized planet that is mostly ocean with many small islands, and a native species of giant sea creature that can communicate telepathically with humans. An excellent pairing with my island vacation! (though no telepathy with the dolphins or whale that I saw)

llwheeler I haven't seen this book on the lists of sci-fi/fantasy with LGBTQ content that make the rounds periodically, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it. One char has a lot of internalized homophobia at first that made me quite nervous for the direction the story would go, but it didn't go there (imo). 5h
llwheeler @wanderinglynn @TrishB it was so beautiful there! 5h

Aftermath | LeVar Burton

From 1983-2006 he introduced millions of children to his love for reading. More than just an actor but an activist for literacy, one who is rarely credited for such a tremendous achievement. He is currently treading books on a podcast called Stitches.

Dark Force Rising | Timothy Zahn
post image

I have now finished the second of Timothy Zahn‘s Star Wars trilogy and I have to admit I‘m getting sad. The second book was much better than the first, and has me upset that I only have one left. The humor, relationships, and action so far have felt like a page-turning soap opera and I‘m not ready for it to end! (Don‘t read this page if you haven‘t read the book- it‘s the last page!!)

Cortg I've checked this out from the library several times but never get around to it and end up returning it. I've heard great things and it's STILL on my TBR. 23h
