Into The Forest

4/5 stars

I feel like this book is unrealistic to how two young sisters would adapt to their post-apocalyptic reality. They’re wrought with horrible decisions. The younger sister, Nell, had a moment in the book when I felt like she could redeem herself but backed out at the last moment. The very end of the book was another stupid and horrible decision; I didn’t get it. But despite my issues with Into The Forest and my shaking my head and disagreeing with almost everything the girls did, I really enjoyed this story. It enraptured me from start to finish.

I, Robot

5/5 stars

Wasn’t sure what to expect when I dove into this collection of short stories, but I was pleasantly surprised! I loved the mystery of having to solve logic puzzles along with the characters. This was my first real science fiction / Isaac Asimov book I’ve read but I look forward to reading more in the future.
