    Guest reviewer today, is my lovely bookworm fiancé, William who is a big sci-fi lover The speculative fiction genre debuted with, amongst other narrative structures, the Voyage[^1].

  • SUPERNOVA ERA BY CIXIN LIU

    I absolutely loved The Three-Body-Problem by Cixin Liu and there goes my fascination for the authors’ work. Beyond excited, when I learned that he just released a new novel : Supernova Era. The approach is a little bit different this time, I would say it’s even more of a Young Adult kind of vibe contrary to […]

    “Think about waking up one morning and finding you don’t have a voice in anything.” Sometimes I receive bookmails and I’m excited for them because I know the books, and once in a while, I receive the most random bookmail that I never heard of. So, It can go both ways: whether I hate it […]

    The Fifth Season : Dark and Brilliant Worldbuilding

    A thousand years later, Trang finally reviews a fantasy novel. Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I reviewed the fantasy genre.

    The Illuminae Series have to be one of the most entertaining YA science-fiction that Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman have delivered in the past years. When I heard about Jay Kristoff releasing a new scifi series, I couldn’t help but having very high expectations. It ends up being one of my favourite reads of the […]
