🎧 Network Effect by Martha Wells    —  audiobook // I’m finally reading one of my most anticipated novels of 2020 and it’s so much fun! If you aren’t familiar with Murderbot, the first four installments in the series are novellas and this one that just came out is a full length novel. Murderbot is one of my favorite characters ever because it’s so relatable, and its point of view is hilarious even in the shittiest of situations. In this novel it’s reunited with its friend A.R.T. (you don’t want to know what it stands for) and I’d been waiting for this since the second novella, I swear they’re the best duo and I live for their shenanigans.

🎧 Vagabonds by Hao Jingfang   —  audiobook ARC // like I said in my (not yet full) review, this was an interesting experience that I’m not looking forward to repeating. In case it isn’t clear, I actually really, really liked this and I think it did very interesting things. It’s basically literary fic in a sci-fi trenchcoat and if you’re wondering what that means: a whole lot of introspection and philosophy, not even one space battle and more physics than your average novel. Which, to me, meant that I really enjoyed it, but I am also aware that I would have hated it if I hadn’t been listening to it in audiobook format.

📕 The State of Us by Shaun David Hutchinson    —  e-ARC // I am determined to read it before it comes out, I can finally feel the will to read again after an almost two-months slump but unfortunately a) uni doesn’t leave me a lot of time and when I do have time I also have house chores and then I’m too tired to do anything but watch some episodes on the couch; b) I actually feel like reading fantasy and specifically sapphic fantasy and this is definitely not that fdhsgslkghslhgslkg so we’ll see.

    1. ohhhh i would say it’s mid to high level of scifi to be honest? i am also not one who can read scifi unless it’s in audiobook format (that’s how i read all novellas and how i’m reading the novel). To be honest a lot of things fly over my head when i’m listening to it, but what i take away from it is still more than enough to understand and appreciate the story, and it’s very character and relationship driven too. But i totally understand what you mean and if you’re not certain i’d recommend trying an excerpt and see if it might be for you!
