I won this book through a Goodreads First Reads contest. Although a bit different from my normal taste these days, I was eager to sink into this historical fiction, a genre I don’t read as often as I’d like. I was not disappointed.

I seriously loved The 5th Wave and I have been dying to read this since then. I can’t really say much about the plot as it will give way to much away but there are many MANY twists and turns and I loved it so much I can’t stop fangirling!

I finished reading Hyperion on the plane back home. This again is a (1989) book I had not heard of until I saw it in the Gollancz 50 series (which delivers at a low price the “best” 50 books in science-fiction and fantasy, like Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind and Gene Wolfe’s The Book of the New Sun. Its only drawback being a vivid and ugly yellow color! I don’t often read space opera sci-fi; however, this book is a masterpiece that completely deserves its inclusion in the Gollancz 50 series.

So, full disclosure: I’m a pretty big The Office fan, and I watch The Mindy Project. So, yeah, I like Mindy Kaling’s brand of humor. It’s sort of self-effacing in a girl power-ish kind of way.

This book is her memoir-slash-autobiography written pre-Mindy Project, but post-the Office.

This one was a tough pick for rating between 4.5 and 5. I’m not a big giver of 5 stars, so I had to really think about this one. And it was a hard choice, but my rating would go to 4.5 stars. That’s not to say that it was a bad story, it was amazing. Totally on my all-time faves. :)
