EarthseedOctavia Butler
Great North RoadPeter F Hamilton25th November 2022This was one of those books where everything was resolved in the last couple of chapters, annoying because it was good before that.
Children of RuinAdrian Tchaikovsky12th October 2022I really did not enjoy this book
Way StationClifford Simack3rd October 2022
The Belt (1-6)Gerald M. Kilby21st September 2022
State of TerrorHilary Clinton29th August 2022
Breakfast of ChampionsKurt Vonnegut8th August 2022A reread
Beacon 23Hugh Howey4th August 2022Bleak, I do love HH though
Axiom's EndLindsay Ellis31st July 2022This got good reviews but didn't do it for me, I don't think aliens-on-earth is my genre
Attack SurfaceCory Doctorow26th July 2022
HomelandCory Doctorow19th July 2022
Little BrotherCory Doctorow9th July 2022
Revelation SpaceAlistair Reynolds1st July 2022It would be an understatement to say that I did NOT enjoy this and could not wait for it to end.
The good psychopath's guide to successKevin Dutton & Andy McNab3rd June 2022Written in a really annoying way, not sure it contained any particularly useful information
For we are manyDennis Taylor30th May 2022I'm over the Bobiverse now
Red MarsKim Stanley Robinson25th May 2022A classic
Dark stateCharles Stross16th May 2022
Empire gamesCharles Stross29th April 2022
I choose youGayle Curtis16th April 2022So badly written, awful plot that doesn't really make sense. All the characters were unlikeable. Nothing is revealed til the last chapter and even then it makes little sense.
The galaxy and the ground withinBecky Chambers13th April 2022This one is new, woo
Record of the spaceborn fewBecky Chambers10th April 2022Yep, definitely read this before
A closed and common orbitBecky Chambers3rd April 2022I'm sure I've read this before
A long way to a small angry planetBecky Chambers27th March 2022Re-read
The 22 Murders of Madison MayMax BarryMar 12, 2022Kinda lightweight but enjoyable parallel world stuff, would recommend
ExhalationTed ChiangMar 06, 2022As with all short story collections some were excellent, some less so. I particularly liked 'The Truth of Fact, the Truth of Feeling', 'What's Expected of Us' and 'Anxiety Is the Dizziness of Freedom'. 'The Lifecycle of Software Objects' was too long and silly.
The City Where We Once LivedEric BarnesFeb 24, 2022Dark, unsatisfactory ending but that kinda fits.
Light From Uncommon StartsRyka AokiFeb 22, 2022This was nuts. I enjoyed every second of it.
Never Let Me GoKazuo IshiguroFeb 2, 2022A sad book, good read but nothing jolly about it.
All Systems RedMartha WellsFeb 06, 2022Lots of people rave about these Murderbot books, I liked it well enought but not excited to read the sequel.
The Other MotherJen BristerFeb 01, 2022Some of this was very relatable, obviously. Given it's about her first year or so with the twins it would probably have meant more if I'd read it a few years ago.
Demon Haunted WorldCarl SaganJan 20, 2022Quite dated now but still weirdly relevant. Bit hard work though.
BewildermentRichard PowersJan 14, 2022Ooof this one hurt me. Prepare yourselves.
The Fifth SeasonNK JemisonJan 04, 2022Can't decide if I liked this or not. Not my usual cup of tea but I'm editing this review 2 months later and the world is still living in my head. Perhaps I should read the sequel.
