Feeling Sci-Fi may delete later…. Good Friyay, Friends of B+S! I don’t know if it’s the surreal world we’re living in right now, or me accidentally huffing plant fertilizer powder yesterday, but I’m in the mood for AI/ human love affairs and otherworldly alien best friends. Luckily for me, I found the perfect book meme to not only talk about my latest book obsession but also give a little thanks back. Here’s “F is For Friday: Feeling a Little Sci-Fi edition”.
Push away your workweek worries, and jump into your bookish weekend by answering these 4 questions:
F: Feature your latest book obsession (it doesn’t have to be your current read)
I: Indicate which book/s you are looking forward to reading this weekend
F – Favorite quote of the week/day
F – Five things you’re happy or grateful for this week
Let’s give a warm thank you to Nomadic Worlds for providing us with such a lovely meme to indulge on…
So… my latest obsession will be leaning towards Sci-Fi, as previously stated. Because I don’t have much Sci-Fi experience in recent history, I will have to think about the last book I read in this genre that I was going crazy over. Hmmmm…
Come to think of it, I was mostly watching Sci-Fi, not reading. Which is another reason why I want to start reading it. I loved watching Sci-Fi so much that I must love reading it as well. And I watch a lot, a lot of Sci-Fi… it’s in my top 3 genres to watch. Anywho…
For the sake of having something to say, I will talk about my latest Sci-Fi tv show obsession:
Oh Westworld… you had me at “futuristic park that allows you to act out your most illicit fantasies on robot hosts with artificial consciousness.” With a tagline like that, you’re bound to give me some great content.
And, Boy, do they! Westworld gives you everything you would want in a true Sci-Fi drama. Realism mixed with surrealism, confusing the mind, and enthralling the senses. The characters are either gorgeous or ruggedly handsome, and they didn’t get overly creepy with the human on AI sex.. .but there was still enough to keep you intrigued.
If you’re into that sorta thing, of course… hehehe….
**arhemm** I digress…
This one’s easy! It’s the same book that recently inspired me to want to read some Sci-Fi in the first place. I have been noticing this lovely cover sparkling on my bookshelf for days now, and finally I decided this weekend would be the one that I start reading it. This book was in my OwlCrate October 2019 box which featured two Sci-Fi books!!!
Ughhh…I just love OwlCrate soooo much!
Don’t know what OwlCrate is? Check out my blog post all about it!
Crier’s War written by Nina Varela Goodread synopsis:
After the War of Kinds ravaged the kingdom of Rabu, the Automae, Designed to be the playthings of royals, took over the estates of their owners and bent the human race to their will.
Now, Ayla, a human servant rising the ranks at the House of the Sovereign, dreams of avenging the death of her family… by killing the Sovereign’s daughter, Lady Crier. Crier, who was Made to be beautiful, to be flawless. And to take over the work of her father.
Crier had been preparing to do just that—to inherit her father’s rule over the land. But that was before she was betrothed to Scyre Kinok, who seems to have a thousand secrets. That was before she discovered her father isn’t as benevolent as she thought. That was before she met Ayla.
As I’ve stated in previous posts… I try to keep myself naive to a lot of what any book I plan to read is all about. I like to be surprised and go in with zero judgment or expectation. I was able to hear the author talk a bit about herself and the book and its genre in general (without specifics) the month it was released and I fell in love with her. I’m pretty sure I subconsciously told myself that she would be my first Sci-Fi author to read.

“Crier was beautiful. Created to be beautiful, but it was more than that. […] It was the way her eyes lit up with interest, the way her fingers were always so careful, almost reverent, as she flipped the pages of a book.”
From the pages of the book I found this quote and it made my heart smile. I was once told I behaved something similar when I read as well… I guess I am Crier and Crier is me. We shall find out…
I like this one… it’s nice to take time and appreciate all that you have.
