Special Feature: The Other Me by Sarah Zachrich Jeng

Typically I am not a huge sci fi fan. I have tried a few over the years and it’s just not my genre but I don’t mind thrillers that have some sci fi elements. The mashup typically works well for me and I don’t mind branching out and trying something a little on the new side. That was what drew me to this one—that unique mash up of mystery/thriller and sci fi elements.

I don’t know if I will move it to the top of my TBR list, but there is enough here in the description and in some of the early reviews to give me pause and consider a book that might be a little out of my comfort zone. Some early reviewers have called this one a little strange which would normally be off putting, however I think in this context and genre blending, I think it’s supposed to be strange.

If you are looking for a thriller with a different vibe this summer then I think this book could be just what you are looking for. I liked the concept of making a different choice with the life you have versus the one you might have had. I think this book will explore some interesting concepts and have a very unique feel right from the beginning. I am excited to see what people think of this one and of course it’s on my TBR to check out!

Special Feature: The Minders by John Marrs

I don’t read a ton of sci fi but I do enjoy a good dystopian novel and this latest novel by John Marrs sounds like it strikes the perfect balance between dystopian and sci fi that will appeal to a wide audience! This one even has a bit of government conspiracy which is one of the reasons why it caught my eye!

Marrs has written a number of thrillers that have been widely praised but this appears to be his first dystopian/sci fi novel and I am so excited to check it out. It sounds like it’s also going to have some thriller elements so this one looks like it’s going to have broad appeal for audiences. This one boasts a lot of action and suspense which, in my mind, means it will read quick.

If you are looking for a new thriller with a heavy mix of sci fi and dystopian lit then you are going to want to get this one on your radar. Marrs has a large fan base and his thrillers have been widely praised by fans. This one in-particular has already received a lot of hight praise too! While I cannot fit this one on my review schedule for this month, I plan on reading it very soon in the future. It’s out now so if this one sounds appealing to you, then you should grab yourself a copy now!

Review: Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff

When HBO picked up this book to turn into a series, I was thrilled! I didn’t know anything about the book or the author but I know that HBO always turns out well done series so when I saw the previews for this one, I couldn’t wait.

I also have been getting more and more into the horror genre and when I was approached to do a feature and interview with the author before the HBO series released, I was intrigued and immediately said yes.

After doing the interview and reading more about Lovecraft Country, I decided to wait and watch the HBO series in favor of reading the book first so that I could then watch the series and enjoy it without it ruining anything.
