-LEAVE NOW, WHITE MAN! PLEASE LEAVE NOW!
-Thank you for saying what I couldn’t…

With the start of the television adaptation of Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, I knew that I had to read the series of books. It’s been coming for a while, but finally, it was the turn of these books. I have to say, just like the TV show, that I was happily surprised at how good they were. I managed to finish reading the first book, The Magicians, in a few days.

It was an interesting reading year. I finally managed to read more than 100 books in a year. It was challenging to say the least. However, it kept me focused. From time to time, I didn’t read as much. I kept away from reading multiple books at once. I only did this from time to time when the book I was reading wasn’t that good.

For some reason, Sun of Suns popped up in my reading queue late last year. I wasn’t sure what to expect. While Sun of Suns started quite confusingly (it was hard to pin down the reason why it wasn’t gripping as the rest of the series), it matured quickly into a great book.
I managed to read four of the five Books of Virga late last year. I started this year by finishing Ashes of Candesce. All in all, it was a great series. I’m a bit sad that Schroeder didn’t write more books in this series. It just started getting really interesting towards the end, when more bubbles were discovered adjacent to Virga, some of which contained artificial life that existed outside of Artificial Nature.
I like the concept of AIs that are thinking whilst eschewing consciousness. It’s a theme that I’ve seen come up in a few different books that I read in 2015 (Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds).
It has been years in the making, but finally, this Christmas another Star Wars movie hit theaters. Since George Lucas wasn’t in charge anymore, and that they had managed to snag JJ Abrams to direct, I had high hopes.

Alastair Reynolds has been one of my favorite authors ever since I discovered him. In recent years, with his departure from the Revelation Space universe, his work hasn’t been as good. He was a master at hard science-fiction, creating intricate storylines that blew me aways.It was with high hopes that I anticipated his Poseidon’s Children series. I started the last book in the series, Poseidon’s Wake, a few days ago and finished it quite quickly.

Syfy’s shows haven’t been earth shattering recently, but they haven’t been bad. When I learned about the TV adaptation of The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey, I was intrigued. I was able to get through the first few books quickly enough to see what the TV series would compare to.
