Reading progress update: I've read 8%. - totally compulsive listening
The Princess Diarist - Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher reading her own diary looking back on her involvement with Star Wars and including journal entries made at the time of the first movie - how could I resist that? WHY would I resist that.

 

With dry wit, unflinching candour, a dash of carefully expressed malice and a wry sense of humour, Carrie Fisher takes us into her confidence. I'm going to be dipping into this eagerly when I need to relax.

Martians Abroad: A Novel - Carrie Vaughn

"Especially considering the gravity situation. I would have thought underground would be easier. Not as far to fall as from those tall buildings. But apparently they liked that sunshine thing. Wimps...

 

I still felt naked without my breathing mask. What if the air ran out? However much my brain knew it wouldn’t, my gut wasn’t so sure."

Some mixed feelings about this one.  Well-written.  There are moments it's good SF -- where you get glimpses of future and extraplanetory pieces that do contribute well to the atmosphere.  The story isn't that interesting (other than the premise) at past the halfway mark.  I think it's because the plot has basically gone into teenagers and cliches in an academy for the special territory.  And I have yet to like any of the characters.

"I resisted an urge to find a fire extinguisher and put them all out—it would have been my first impulse at home. Open flame and artificial atmospheres didn’t go well together...

 

They were so casual about the air here."

"Charles was usually too smart to get caught when he did things like hack a mining rover or borrow gene-splicing lab equipment to engineer blue strawberries just to see if he could."

"On top of that, the keys were helpfully labeled with numbers that matched the cycles’ ID plates. It was like someone wanted me to borrow one."
