Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

This is one of those novels wherein everything was against my odds. Netgalley didn’t approve my request, and I ended up forgetting about it despite the intimidating amount if praise this novel’s been receiving the past few months. Thankfully Edelweiss accepted my request. Dark Matter is about endless possibilities. That’s all I’m going to say…

The Fireman by Joe Hill

I just realized that it took me almost a month to finish this novel. I read the whole ASOIF series in a span of about 25 days, meaning about 5 days each for a 1000+ page novel. This novel is only 700+ pages long but I didn’t finish it soon enough. I can blame my…

The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

I haven’t had a great read from Netgalley in months. I’m glad that I saw this on the most requested section and decided to give it a try. One of the best decisions I’ve made this 2016. If you’re planning on reading this novel then you should avoid spoilers at all cost. I read the…

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey

It’s not usual that I enjoy zombie related books. I haven’t read much, but I’ve seen a lot of movies and several tv series about it. When I first bought this book months ago, the only thing I knew about it was that it’s about zombies. I was a bit reluctant to buy it, and…

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

*This is a review for the first book of the series This is another instance where it’s daunting to write a review because the novel is well-known and loved by millions of people. As a Sci-Fi/Fantasy reader, it’s embarrassing that I’ve only read this once, and I’ve waited ’till 2016 to read this. I’m glad…

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

What is the best way to make your YA book standout? Change the format of the novel. That was the first thing that made me even look at this novel. Most of the time if it’s YA and people are talking about it, I tend to stay away. Props to the authors for coming up…

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

I hope no one kills me because I know most of the people who read this really enjoyed it in the end. This is another one of my unpopular opinions, so bear with me as I try to explain what went wrong, for me. Every time I pick up a sci-fi novel, I always read…

The Circle by Dave Eggers

I hate books with unlikable characters. The mere fact that it took me 14 days to finish this short novel clearly means that something bad was going on. The novel didn’t captivate me in any way possible. The premise was great, but the execution was laughable. The Circle is a company wherein transparency is the…

The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells

I won’t deny the fact that at one point in my childhood, I wanted to become invisible. It wasn’t the top priority in my list of “I hope one day I’d suddenly have this super power”, but it was still there, probably at number 6 lagging behind Wolverine’s Claws, flying, super strength, teleportation, and Johnny…

Armada by Ernest Cline

“Kill or be killed. Conquer or be conquered. Survive or go extinct.” If you clicked on the link above and read my review of RPO, you would know that I was completely blown away by his first novel. RPO will always be my favorite novel of all time, and that fact managed to alter my…

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

One of my favorite novels of all time. Of all time. Amazing world building, best I’ve ever read for now. Amazing in a way that every detail was thought of very well. Aside from the best world building I’ve ever read, the characters were also just as superb. Wade Watts has been added to my…
