*Very minor spoilers in first paragraph* "Frexing" -the world's oldest past-time and the favored activity of all of the Feeders that live on the spaceship Godspeed, when the "Season" is active. And I don't mean the social season for high society. I'm talking about the scheduled mating season on G...

I read this because I'm looking for books that have religiously motivated missions to the stars, and the ship in question is called the Godspeed. Alas, it does not fit my criterion; Godspeed is just a name. The plot is murder mystery on a generation ship, so it's sort of the ultimate locked room sce...

This book was really enjoyable. I enjoyed reading it, the concept was really interesting and it was full of mystery. Stil, many things did not work for me. I hated the relationship between Amy and Elder. They get along way too quickly according to me, it seems like they've known each other for ever ...

Although I saw some of the twists coming, I did not see them all. I'm actually not sure I ever read a book set on a spaceship before, so this was interesting. The characters were interesting and I felt bad for Amy in particular. She ended up in a pretty awful situation and had a lot of trouble han...

If you’d take a look at my could-not-finish shelf on Goodreads, you’d realize I’m not the most patient reader… Okay, I’m not patient at all. The point is, I’d much rather put down a book then attempt to finish a book I’m not feeling. This generally happens because I’m not in the mood for whatever ge...

According to one of the promo blurbs, this is a "genre bending" story that is part sci-fi, part murder mystery, part budding romance, and part dystopian. It fails pretty hard as science fiction, being somewhat lacking in the science department (and by "somewhat" I mean "ridiculously"). It fails ...

I came across this book while browsing my local library's site, and it just happened to be available. I went into it knowing nothing about the book at all, and ended up pleasantly surprised. We open with Amy, a 17-year-old daughter of a scientist and a top military official who are all being cryog...

Talk about a fun and true science fiction young adult book. Anything science fiction these days is generally a very Dystopian novel - survival and trying to figure out what happened to society. Across The Universe is everything sci-fi, space ships, weird sexual creatures, with bonus twists and turns...

I loved this book. While the cover is awesome, it’s more romantic than the contents. This is primarily a sci fi book with a little bit of romance thrown in.The chapters alternate between Amy’s point of view and Elder’s point of view. Amy’s first few chapters really got my heart pounding and sucked m...
