I was expecting something slightly more funny and less serious, but How to Survive a Robot Uprising tackles the upcoming robot-apocalypse describing different types of robots that will bring our demise. It is easily portable and fits in a pocket, gives tips about escaping a smart house and if anything, made me aware of all the possible thing that can kill me.
Quick read, not as funny as I expected it to be though, and I'm afraid that in the event of a robot-apocalypse most of the information might be out-dated.
These are my reads for the upcoming weekend.
I am about 100 pages into The Sunne in Splendour. Penman hits the ground running and hooks you. I was holding my breath during Sandal Castle and thought, why do I not read more of this woman's books? So good.
The Clockwork Dynasty is a Netgalley read about mechanical beings that exist undetected among us... but actually takes place in 1725 Russia - I'm botching the blurb but it's different enough to be intriguing.
Getting dressers for post- wedding apartment and saying goodbye to my little brother who will be moving across the country on Monday. So emotional weekend ahead.
What are your weekend plans?
While I'm seriously behind on my reviews, my reading and listening did not suffer too much this month. (I've been preparing an Open House for this weekend) The titles with links have reviews, the ones without are still pending.
