It's a Question of Space
 It's a Question of Space: An Ordinary Astronaut's Answers to Sometimes Extraordinary Questions - Clayton C. Anderson

[I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.]

I’m going to admit I had no idea who Clayton Anderson was when I requested this book, but it sounded interesting, and interesting it turned to be, indeed. There were plenty of little things I never suspected regarding life on the ISS, and in space in general, and I feel like I’ve learnt a lot. Which I’m sure is absolutely not going to be useful if I write a sci-fi story someday. Never.

It’s a fast read, in Q&A format, which is ideal when, like me, you read a lot during breaks at work, or while commuting. No long chapters that make it difficult to stop (almost) any time. These cover a lot of various things, from how the human body reacts in space to the kind of operations astronauts have to be trained in, from the former space shuttle program to little things like ‘how to you wash yourself in micro-gravity’.

While I felt that Anderson might have misinterpreted a couple of questions (I’m thinking more specifically about the one regarding ‘what do you think of people who say the moon landing is a conspiracy’), overall his answers were simple and often full of humour. The man doesn’t hesitate to make fun of himself, and admits when he goofed on the station. He doesn’t always get into details, and he doesn’t hide it when he doesn’t know something, so perhaps some of the answers were a little lackluster; still, in general, this was fairly informative for me.

Conclusion: 3.5 stars. And I wouldn’t mind reading his other book, for sure.

Taboo Series (Books 1-5)
Taboo 5 - Kol Anderson

Honestly this had some potential and at the end of Book 2 I was quite intrigued by where this was headed. Unfortunately between episodes it was almost like the author changed his mind on where to take the story and this happened between every single episode.  Overall it was just all over the place and I never got a sense I understood anyone EVER...much less what would drive any of these people to do what they were doing.  

 

Add to that...my heavens the editing got worse with every book.  Quite disappointing.

 

Definite potential but lost its edge and its direction too many times to fully enjoy.

The Covenant - Evangeline Anderson

Kaitlyn is a witch and an S.E. (Special Enforcer) in charge of the paranormal cases in her area. When a local vampire, Summer, kills an innocent man and is captured on tape, it seems an open and shut case to bring him down. 

 

But the simple case turns complicated as there's a witch serial killer on the loose and it seems that Summer is not all he seems to be. Could it be that Summer might have the answer to exactly what is threatening all the witches? And why does Summer affect her so? 

 

Of course he's gorgeous and irresistible, but a witch and a vampire mating is totally against the rules, right? Then if it's so wrong, why does Summer's touch feel so right? Can Kaitlyn survive long enough to find out or will the witch serial killer get her, too? 

 

The Covenant features:
