Currently Reading: THE ROSEWATER INSURRECTION by Tade Thompson:
I haven’t technically opened this book up yet as I’ve just finished re-reading the first book in the Wormwood series while I eagerly await the final instalment being released this month. If ROSEWATER is any indication of quality though, then I’m absolutely certain I’m going to love this book. I honestly think Tade Thompson is breaking new ground in modern science fiction, basically reinventing and reinvigorating the alien invasion genre.
Recently Finished: ROSEWATER by Tade Thompson
ROSEWATER is a near future biopunk sci-fi novel set in Nigeria. It tells the story of Kaaro, a ‘sensitive’ who is recruited by a secretive government agency because of his ability to access the xenosphere, allowing him to read and manipulate people’s thoughts to find hidden and lost objects. There’s so much going on in this book that this little snippet doesn’t do it justice but I’ll be putting out full reviews for both ROSEWATER and THE ROSEWATER INSURRECTION in the next couple of weeks where I fully expect to gush praise for them both.
Next Read: PET SEMATARY by Stephen King
I don’t read enough horror full stop and I’ve always wanted to read more Stephen King. Luckily the spookfest that is the entirety of October gives me the perfect excuse to dive in. I’d love to hear your horror recommendations this Halloween cos it’s a genre I don’t know enough about, despite growing up on a steady diet of horror films, thanks to my beloved yet twisted auntie who sat me down in front of The Exorcist when I was nine haha.
That’s what I’ve got planned this week.
What are you folks reading?
Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned?
