Alien Next Door, Joey Spiotto
Alien Next Door - Joey Spiotto

Ahh-hahahahahahahahaha - *huge intake of breath* - hahahahahahaha!


What if the Xenomorph was not an implacable killing machine but rather an average Joe alien with everyday problems? Find out from this book full of visual and verbal puns playing on the Alien film series.

Touched by an Alien
Touched by an Alien - Gini Koch

So this book was fun! It kicked off with action and more action. This was perfectly escapist for all the shit going down right now in the US.
In other time I might have been annoyed with Kitty. While she has some flaws and was honest, she also was a little too perfect (being able to able a gun without practice, hang upside down, and other feats of strength) and knew exactly what to do most of the time. But honestly, I really, really didn't care. Go Kitty! I enjoyed all the secondary characters and loved the humor. There was a little bit of a love triangle (but didn't last long). Kitty fell a little too fast for Jeff (days), but what the hey? I really didn't care. Kitty's family (both human and animal) was hilarious.
Read for Romance-opoly moon track

review SPOILER ALERT! 2020-04-28 07:17
Alien Earth by Megan Lindholm
Alien Earth - Megan Lindholm

TITLE:  Alien Earth


AUTHOR:  Megan Lindholm






"A classic science fiction adventure from the backlist of Megan Lindholm, who also writes as Robin Hobb.


Generations ago humanity abandoned Earth. Now they have returned.


Far from home, the Human race tries to atone for killing Terra thousands of years ago. Rescued by the enigmatic Arthroplana in their mysterious Beastships, they have been inserted into the fragile ecologies of the alien twin worlds of Castor and Pollux, where they must make no impact, where every drop of water must be returned. Humanity has adjusted – or tried to.


Despite the constant watch of the Arthroplana and the Human Conservancy, John Gen-93-Beta has agreed to captain the Beastship Evangeline on an unthinkable journey to a dead planet… Earth.


And so begins an engrossing voyage of discovery for five travellers: John, his First Mate Connie, stowaway Raef, Tug the Arthroplana and the Beastship Evangeline herself. On a planet none quite expected, each learns the power of being human."





I've had this book stuffed in my bookshelves, with all the other delightful Megan Lindholm novels, for decades.  And finally got around to reading it.  This is a beautifully written, semi-introspective science fiction novel, featuring original aliens and exploring various aspects of humanity and its place in the universe (sort of).  This book is hard to explain, there is so much in it.  The characters all have individual personalities, there is character development, the plot is simple but effective, the world building consistent and original, the writing sublime, poignant and exhilarating.  It also happens to be a standalone novel.  This was a very enjoyable reading experience.

Review: Rescued by the Alien Pirate (Mates of the Kilgari #1) by Celia Kyle & Athena Storm

Rescued by the Alien Pirate
Mates of the Kilgari #1

Science Fiction Romance - Aliens

I woke from cryostasis a prisoner. My crime? I have no idea. 


I was stuck with a hundred other women, all headed to who knows where. Captive in a dank, dirty cargo hold. 


Then, out of the darkness, came Solair. 


A handsome alien. Golden skinned. Horned. The dashing captain of a pirate ship. They rescued us--he gave my people food, shelter, and promised us safety. In exchange?


He took me for himself. 


But the people who captured us, haven’t given up. They want us back. They’re powerful and will do whatever it takes to find us. The only thing stopping them?





He wants me. And what he takes…


He keeps.






Rescued by the Alien Pirate is book one in the Mates of the Kilgari series by Celia Kyle and Athena Storm.


I’ve been on a Sci-Fi Romance kick lately. The cover and title intrigued me, so I decided to give this new series a try. I’ve liked other books by Celia Kyle, but have not tried Athena Storm. 


The concept sounded good, but unfortunately the women introduced; especially our lead heroine killed this book for me. 


Varia our heroine. When we meet her she is imprisoned on a spaceship with several other women who have popped out of the cryo-stasis they where put in. Their are still many women in the cryo-stasis; besides the few that’s tubs have stoped working. They don’t know why they are their and she’s become the de facto leader. She is not a nice person. I’m not sure what the authors where trying to go for with her, but she came across as ungrateful, aggressive, demanding, and just all around an awful person/character. She was so mean to the Kilgari, alien pirates, that saved her and the other 106 women from certain death. All she did was pick a fight with our lead hero Solair. All her conversations where a fight. She did not utter one word of Thank You nor did she engage in a calm discussion about anything. Instead she was irate with the Kilgari aliens. Not sure if she got better or changed her attitude, but the fist impression of her turned me off. 


Solair our pirate alien Captian of the Queen and all the Kilgari aliens are such nice guys. I like the Kilgari race, but I felt sorry for Solair and all the Kilgari. They are all bending over backwards to help the Human women. They have limited resources and are trying to make due to accommodate all the new mouths to feed and well the women are comeing across as ungrateful. As for Solair our hero, Varia showed no respect to him even though he’s the Captain and his whole crew are making sacrifices for these women. It was just sad to see these nice aliens not get more respect. 


Their are a lot of secondary characters introduced. We meet several other Human women and other Kilgari aliens. The alien guys are awesome and relatable, but the human women are eh. 


As for the romance between Solair and Varia I never felt it. I stoped at 30%, so not much was happening on this front only that Solair feels a strong pull towards Varia and thinks that she is his fated one and only mate. I didn’t get any chemistry between them only fighting. 


I wanted to like this one, but Rescued by the Alien Pirate was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 


Rated: DNF’d at 30%
