Book Review: An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green

“What is reality except for the things that people universally experience the same way?” Book Rating 4.25/5 Book Review An Absolutely Remarkable Thing had a strikingly original idea, or maybe I just haven’t read enough science fiction! I loved the narrator, April May, although sometimes she infuriated me. But at least she knew it. The…

Book Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Book Rating 5/5, no contest Book Review I LITERALLY CAN’T PROCESS HOW GOOD THIS BOOK IS. If you haven’t already read Dark Matter, please go read it. Go get it right now. Buy it here. I am shooketh. I stayed up late reading this. I mean, if you know me, you know there is practically…
