Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus - John Gray I am laughing as I am writing this review.

I read this boko at a rather tender age of 20. I am all for girl power and gender equality, and am aginst stereotypes and all that. But this book made a point with me. I appreciate that.

Speculative worlds:


Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler – Reviewed.


The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula le Guin – Sometimes, I have no words for the books I enjoy.


Killbox by Ann Aguirre – I really loved this addition to the series. So much character growth. Seriously.


Fantasy with LGBTQIA protagonists:


A Companion to Wolves by Sarah Monettte and Elizabeth Bear – So immersive. I must have a soft spot for stories with the kind of fierce, strange, playful and familial loyalty that exists between wolves and people.


Captive Prince by C.S Pacat – Reviewed.


Supernatural YA with protagonists from mixed backgrounds:


Razorhust by Justine Larbeleister – Reviewed.


Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory – Reviewed.


Non-fiction for those who wander:


Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury – Just brilliant. Both practical and inspiring. 


Daring Greatly by Bene Brown – Wonderful advice on building resilience. See the TED Talk.


The Soul of the Marionette: A Short Inquiry into Human Freedom by John Nicholas Gray – Reviewed.
