I liked the themes I’ve been doing the past two months, both for Black History Month and Women’s History Month. I don’t think I will continue with themes, but I couldn’t help myself doing it one last time. Of course, this has nothing especially to do with April, but I thought I would read some science fiction since I had a book in just about every one of my categories.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. I have been wanting to read this book for months now, and I finally have it on my monthly TBR. In fact, it’s the book that inspired the sci-fi theme. I don’t know much about the plot other than it’s about a girl who takes a picture of this mysterious robot that shows up and she deals with the fame fallout.
The Whole Brain Child by Daniel J Siegel, MD and Tina Payne Bryson, PhD. So this isn’t science fiction, per se, but it does kind of fit into the science realm. It’s one of the books I picked up for parenting, and I’m interested to see what it says. I like holistic approaches, and it seems to be leaning in that direction.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This was a big series in the YA community that actually completed last year with the book Obsidio. The format is really fascinating which is what pulled me to the book in the first place. It’s a collection of notes and emails and other correspondence back and forth. I’m intrigued.
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. I think I read this book in school, but I don’t really remember what it is about, other than it probably takes place on Mars. But it fits the science fiction theme, so I’m excited to read it.
