My Review:

This book was like reading an old 80’s B-Movie and I loved every bit of it, it had such a goofy and terrifying concept and I had a lot of fun going through it.

SINthetic by J.T. Nicholas

cover124795-medium

My Review:

I had a lot of fun with this one, it had exactly what I was looking for in a scifi book. It really did make me think about what makes us humans, and I really enjoyed reading this. It was sad to read the treatment of the crime when it was revealed to be a Synth. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to more from the author.

Description:

“Darkly engrossing, SINthetic shines a stark light on the age-old question, what does it mean to be human?”
—Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author  

The Artificial Evolution

 
They look like us. Act like us. But they are not human. Created to perform the menial tasks real humans detest, Synths were designed with only a basic intelligence and minimal emotional response. It stands to reason that they have no rights. Like any technology, they are designed for human convenience. Disposable.

In the city of New Lyons, Detective Jason Campbell is investigating a vicious crime: a female body found mutilated and left in the streets. Once the victim is identified as a Synth, the crime is designated no more than the destruction of property, and Campbell is pulled from the case.

But when a mysterious stranger approaches Campbell and asks him to continue his investigation in secret, Campbell is dragged into a dark world of unimaginable corruption. One that leaves him questioning the true nature of humanity.

And what he discovers is only the beginning . . .

My Review:

What an amazing story, I can’t tell you how moving reading this book was. The stories really pulled you in and took you to the world and experiences that the author had. I liked that not only were there true stories that were great but the fictional parts felt as real as the memoir, it really hit’s home that this is a real person and had real experiences. I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys good writing and a really good memoir.

It consists of a novella, a short memoir focusing on her childhood, a collection of short stories, as well as several essays on the subject. The fictional stories are character driven, most of which are based on Alyce’s life experiences.

About the Author:

My Review:

I had so much fun reading this book, I’ve been a Marvel comics fan for a while and thoroughly enjoyed Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-Man comics so when I saw that a book was coming out I was so excited to read it. This book does not disappoint! It has the spirit of the comics while staying true to the characters and world. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend this to fans of the comics or those looking for a good young adult novel.

Final Girls A Novel by Riley Sager

cover100349-medium

My Review:

This is one of the best mystery books I have ever read, it was such a good read. It had me guessing until the end and even then it was kind of a surprise. The character of Quincy really felt like a real person and I felt for the struggles that she had to go through. I can’t say how much of a joy this was to read, it had twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and it was so well-written. I can’t recommend this book more to fans of the mystery genre.
