Free movie true fiction quotes. What with all the lovely discussions we're having this week, I thought I'd put my money where my mouth is and shill some books! Here are 55 SFF (or SFF adjacent) books I really enjoyed this year, with mini reviews for each.

I think everyone is missing the last scene, where Margaret says Mr. Jingles killed Trevor and the camera went to Montana who had a sad look but i also think she connected some dots because Montana, Trevor, and Chet were all together when the gun shots went off. And Trevor went to go get Margaret, so I'm wondering if those scenes in the preview are them meeting up and maybe Montana will mention it or if Montana is going to try and get her own revenge against Margaret since she never had the chance to nail Trevor.

Free movie true fiction movies. This was my second year doing the book bingo! Last year, I did one sheet. Since I knew about it ahead of time, I thought I'd up the challenge this year, and do two! I just finished the other day. I thought I'd give you a short break down of my selections, and a brief review of my impressions for each title. #Sheet 1: Bingo Square Title Author Review Slice of Life/Small Scale Fantasy Howl's Moving Castle Diana Wynne Jones I've seen the film several times in theaters, but this was the first time I read the book. I was surprised how different it was, but I absolutely loved the story! I was really glad to see that the story deemphasized the war and gave more backstory to Prince Justin. Novel Featuring a Protagonist with a Disability Age of Assassins RJ Barker In a lot of ways, this one feels like the literary equivalent of comfort food. It's really enjoyable, and flew by pretty easily. It was fairly easy to anticipate what's going to happen, but there was enough that was interesting to keep things enjoyable. I really liked the Welsh tinge to the story. I'll definitely come back to this series. SFF Novella The Big Bah-Ha C. S. E. Cooney Read in C. Cooney's collection, Bone Swans. This took me longer than it should (yay moving), but it was really lovely in terms of prose. Since I was only able to get in a page or two before falling asleep, the plot was a bit lost on me. I'll probably re-read this at some point. Self-Published SFF Novel They Mostly Come Out at Night Benedict Patrick I got this one for free, and it was okay. Honestly, I found the writing really uneven. It was really bad about summarizing things that would have made interesting scenes. The main character felt way too passive until the end, and then it turned into a level-up story. Those are big turn-offs for me. SFF Novel Featuring Twins The Lions of Al- Rassan Guy Gavriel Kay I thought the characters were well done, and the setting was a great nod to medieval Spain. I loved the epilogue, too. When the plot was moving it was great. But the book suffered from a lot of info-dumps. It was hard to pay attention a lot of the time due to all the authorial exposition. If the story hadn't ground to a halt so often, I think I would have truly loved this book. As it is, though, it was only likeable. Novel Featuring Vampires The Greyfriar Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith This one was a disappointment. I don't think it needed to be set on planet Earth -- a secondary world setting probably would've been better. Also, all the characters were pretty poorly done. The princess comes off as a Mary sue and the Greyfriar is her edgelord emo boyfriend. The only reason they get along is some hardcore Stockholm Syndrome. The authors specialize in media tie-in fiction for the CW shows Arrow and the Flash, and it's apparent. While I enjoy those shows, my taste in fiction has moved beyond that writing level. I don't think I'll be continuing this series. Graphic Novel or Audiobook Tiamat's Wrath James S. A. Corey The 8th book of a 9 book series. I wouldn't be continuing if I didn't like it. I appreciate that they have finished the storylines of several of the fan-favorite characters. SFF Novel by Author local to you Strange Practice Vivian Shaw I think this is a perfect alternative for people who like the tone of the Wayfarer's series, but disliked the lack of plot. This one has a decent plot with a very interesting villain, but it's rather straightforward. In fact, it ends with a demon ex machina twist. The characters, and their interactions, are really what make this book tick. It's a cozy take on urban fantasy that was just an absolute delight to get lost in. I'm definitely going to circle back to the rest of this series. SFF Novel Featuring an Ocean Setting Stations of the Tide Michael Swanwick It’s hard to pigeonhole this story into one genre. There are many science fiction elements. Virtual reality, cloning, artificial intelligence, and interstellar travel are all in play. But the reader also gets a strong dose of magic, virgin births, and fantastical creatures. Perhaps calling this work a science fantasy is the safest. Whatever it may be, this is an enjoyable brain-tickler that I can't recommend enough. Cyberpunk Blackfish City Sam J. Miller This was an instance where the parts were better than the whole. There were a lot of great concepts in this book, but it didn't gel together. I think the author's writing style was too distant -- the entire story was emotionally cold. 2nd Chance The Kingdom of the Cursed Greg Keyes The second in an ongoing series. I thought the first book was okay, but wasn't as engaged with this one as I had been with other works by Keyes. It's a portal fantasy, and the writing has a very strong fairy tale feel to it. Afrofuturism Rosewater Tade Thompson No knock on the performance, but I had a hard time with the audiobook due to the accent. That shows a personal blindspot more than anything. The actual story was really good! I thought the parallels with Star Trek Discovery were really fun. I wonder if alien fungi is moving into the cultural zeitgeist some. I've purchased the rest of the trilogy, and look forward to getting around to them. If the TBR weren't so high, I'd get to them immediately, but I felt the need to finish these Book Bingo challenges off. Fantasy Novel Published in 2019 The Rage of Dragons (Orbit Edition) Evan Winter I really liked how this novel was structured. I can see how it would work as a strong serialized, self-published story. I really didn't like the plot, though. I think revenge stories are overdone in general, and this really didn't have anything new to say from a theme perspective. Tau became a very hard character to like. I'll continue with the series, but hopefully there's a more interesting perspective/arc/thematic message. Middle Grade SFF Novel The Girl Who Drank the Moon Kelly Barnhill I really enjoyed the authorial voice in this one. It's not the first Barnhill I've read, and she's got a great sense of using prose to convey the world. It's spot-on tone appropriate for the intended younger audience, but is strong enough of a story to hold my audience. I should find more authors similar to her for my reading pleasure. A Personal Recommendation from r/Fantasy Gifts Ursula K. Le Guin I finished this one, but it didn't grab me. I understand Le Guin is an absolute master, but sometimes interest isn't there. In fact, I started (and completed) a nonfiction book in the middle of reading Gifts. I don't plan to continue with this series, but I'll definitely read more of her work in the future. Any r/Fantasy Book of the Month or Read-along Book Senlin Ascends Josiah Bankroft This one reminds me of a mixture of "The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy" and "The Phantom Tollbooth. " It's very episodic, based on the tower's nature. I like the simplicity of the quest (Senlin looking for his missing bride) and how it leads to all sorts of different adventures. I'll definitely continue this series. Media Tie-in Novel The Deep Rivers Solomon I liked this one for what it was, and I appreciated the telephone-game nature of interpretation of the story of Drexciya. I don't think I liked the conclusions that the story reached. As Daveed Diggs' afterword points out, the Remembering in the clipping. song is more of a Seder-like collective experience in story-telling. In Solomon's third-hand remix, they turn the Remembering into a genetic storage of memory into one member of society. I think it was supposed to elicit a conversation about how Caucasian USA wants to sanitize it's historical memory of the American slavery system. But, to me, it felt like it directed the conversation to gaslighting and emotional abuse of an individual scapegoat. While I think the story was beautifully written, I don't think it was cleanly executed. Novel Featuring an AI Character The Quantum Thief Hannu Rajaniemi I really enjoyed this one. It's a straightforward heist tale, and I have a fondness for those. But the post-singularity society was a real treat. The prose is laser-focused on delivering evocative, fun descriptions. Rajaniemi wrote with such verve and panache it's hard to believe this was his debut novel. I'll definitely be continuing on with this series. SFF Novel that has a Title of Four or More Words The Fifth Head of Cerberus Gene Wolfe Three interlinked stories published in one novel. I liked all three, but I think the final one, V. R. T., was my favorite. Retelling! Fair Peril Nancy Springer This one was a lot more humorous than I thought it'd be, and it was definitely a product of the nineties. I liked the idea of Faerie existing as an overlay of our own world. I also appreciated the theme of how the choices of our parents are reflected in our own lives. SFF Novel by an Australian Author The Corpse-rat King Lee Battersby I really loved this one. It's got a lot of humor, and Marius is an absolute delight of character development. I love how Battersby takes him from a selfish heel at the start to a genuinely likeable person by the end. It's a lot of fun, and I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for more of Battersby's work in the future. The Final Book of a Series Children of Ruin Adrian Tchaikovksy As of now, the end. The author has stated he's playing around with a potential sequel, but close enough. This book is a great continuation from Children of Time. It combines a lot of disparate genre elements, notably both horror and utopianism. The main aliens are uplifted octopuses, and (ambitiously), they're far less human than the uplifted spiders. I felt like there was a whole series of material crammed into this book. Super ambitious and highly recommended. #OwnVoices The Lesson Cadwell Turnbull Set in the U. Virgin Islands, this book tells the story of the repercussions of an alien invasion. It's set up as a braided novel -- each chapter is it's own short story. It's interesting to get the perspective of several people who are closely tied to the aliens and to learn about their motivations. Honestly, I couldn't put this one down. It's definitely in my top 5 for 2019. LitRPG One More Last Time Eric Ugland I got this one from the Prime Reader Library; that was this book's only saving grace. The main character, Montana, is an absolute dunce. His backstory is so poorly thought out and inconsistent, it's infuriating. It was a quick read (I finished it in a morning), though, so there was minimal time investment. I don't plan to continue with this series. Honestly, I think the LitRPG square is the weakest one for the Bingo. I don't think I'll voluntarily look for any books in this subgenre again. Five SFF Short Stories Fearsome Journeys Jonathan Strahan (Editor) Epic fantasy is really hard to capture in short story form, and I think this volume suffered from that. There were a lot of good stories that really clicked with me, but some really were a huge chore. #Sheet 2 Bingo Square Title Author Review Slice of Life/Small Scale Fantasy The Golem and the Jinni Helene Wecker Excellent historical fantasy that explores the intersection of immigrants in New York City. Some of the reincarnation aspects to the story were unexpected. But the characters (and their clear personal goals) were the real highlight of this book. Novel Featuring a Protagonist with a Disability A Red Sun Also Rises Mark Hodder A 2012 steampunk novel written like a Victorian epistolary novel. The prose is really well done, as is the worldbuilding -- the aliens are really cool. The book does a great job of confronting the question of evil, and is really entertaining. SFF Novella The Box Jumper Lisa Manetti Told by an unreliable narrator, this story deals with Harry Houdini's quest to expose the falsity of Spiritualism. The timeline is very screwy on this one, so there were some really odd anachronisms. But overall, it was an interesting look at several important historical figures and the Spiritualist movement. Self-Published SFF Novel The Dream Engine Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant This one just was not good. It's a huge rip-off. The world feels paper-thin, and the characters are no better. If you are interested in stories that feature dream worlds, I'd skip this and go to Paprika by Yasutaka Tsutsui and The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome by Serge Brussolo. SFF Novel Featuring Twins Down Among the Sticks and Bones Seanan McGuire Although I don't have a twin, I really felt this book spoke to me about children chafing under parental expectations. I felt like I had been to a therapy session after reading this one. All things considered, it was quite enjoyable, if cathartic. Novel Featuring Vampires Certain Dark Things Silvia Moreno-Garcia I wanted to like this one better than I did. The idea of Mexican vampire gangsters was really cool, but there was a lot of extraneous world-building for a standalone novel. I didn't like where the characters ended up at the book's conclusion, either. Graphic Novel or Audiobook Kushiel's Chosen Jacqueline Carey Second book in the series. Built admirably on the first. The pacing gets a bit loose in the middle, but the overall story is really good. And the steamy sections are quite enjoyable. SFF Novel by Author local to you Exiles at the Well of Souls Jack L. Chalker Chalker was from Baltimore, and I live just north of that. Another second book in a series. I liked the story ok, but it ends on a cliffhanger. I wasn't interested enough to immediately get the next volume. The author's fascination with genitalia was repetitive and uninteresting overall. SFF Novel Featuring an Ocean Setting The Roof of Voyaging Garry Kilworth I started reading this one fresh off of Christina Thompson's excellent non-fiction work: The Sea People. When talking about the Polynesian migration to New Zealand, Thompson wrote about the legend of Kupe and the Octopus. It was really awesome to see Killworth use this story as the opening basis of his excellent work. All-in-all, this is an unsung fantasy classic. The action is brisk, the people jump off the page, and the world feels far more real than many others. I wish this got a lot more attention. I'm definitely moving on to the rest of the trilogy as soon as possible! Cyberpunk Reamde Neil Stephenson This one had a solid premise -- There's an MMORPG that's built around ethical gold farming and hackers are exploiting it for their own financial good. Then, through a really contrived accident, it becomes an homage to Tom Clancy, complete with the gun porn. It basically felt like a bait and switch, and was rather unsatisfactory. Turgid writing, bad plotting, and a dearth of ideas made this one entirely disappointing. 2nd Chance An Illusion of Thieves Kate Glass (Carol Berg) I don't think I've ever read a "comfy" heist novel, but that's the best way to describe this one. I haven't read any of Berg's books for over a decade and this was a nice way to return. I'm interested in following the rest of this series! Afrofuturism Escaping Exodus Nicky Drayden I really enjoyed this one. Drayden does a great job of creating an interesting cast of characters and then spinning conflict from their competing priorities. The setting, a space beast that's been forced into work as a colony ship, is really compelling. It allows for some great environmental commentary. Fantasy Novel Published in 2019 Titanshade Dan Stout A fun, hard-boiled novel. The book plays with its tropes well. I liked how ecological disaster and scarcity drove the story. Excellent commentary on current environmental issues. Middle Grade SFF Novel Genesis Bernard Beckett Excellent philosophical novel for kids. Very interesting, if not unexpected twist at the end. Could also work for the AI square. A Personal Recommendation from r/Fantasy The Cloud Roads Martha Wells I really enjoyed the world building for this book. Moon is a fascinating character, and the interpersonal drama was the highest point of this one. I plan to continue with this series. Pretty good for a recommendation! Any r/Fantasy Book of the Month or Read-along Book Good Omens Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett I read this to prep for the upcoming tv show. It was super enjoyable! I laughed out loud quite a bit. Probably my favorite scene was when the bikers following the four horseman decide to pick apocalyptic names for themselves. Media Tie-in Novel Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus When I saw the movie, I absolutely fell in love with this story. So reading the novelization made absolute sense. In a lot of ways, this was the perfect media tie-in novel. It expanded on the motivations of all the major viewpoint characters. I especially loved reading the viewpoint of the river god, brief though it was. Novel Featuring an AI Character Starsight Brandon Sanderson I liked this one a lot. It was a better book than Skyward -- particularly because it challenged the main character's perceptions about the people she was fighting against. This isn't a cosmere book, but it explores several very similar concepts -- particularly the different realms. M-Bot was a fun character, but I wish he'd been used more. SFF Novel that has a Title of Four or More Words The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet Becky Chambers I thought this one could have been better. Too many characters and too little tension made this one rather limp-wristed. Retelling! Spinning Silver Naomi Novik I really loved this book. Sure, it's a loose retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, but it's also got echoes of the myth of Persephone, also. All of the viewpoint characters are interesting, fascinating people. I love that, aside from the consuming Chernobog, there's no true evil in the story. Everyone is trying to get by with the hand they're dealt. The conflict comes from different priorities ricocheting like billiard balls. SFF Novel by an Australian Author The Stone Mage and the Sea Sean Williams I liked this one. It feels like a post-apocalyptic Australia, and it's cool to see the mix of magic and technology. I remember reading the Star Wars: New Jedi Order: Force Heretic trilogy that Williams co-wrote. This book feels very much like an audition to write a Star Wars novel. Not a bad thing; this was an entertaining work targeted at a younger audience. The Final Book of a Series Dog Wizard Barbara Hambly I came across this one already owned in my Kindle library, and the premise sounded intriguing. So I quickly powered through the series so I could use it for this particular title here. Overall, I liked the series quite a bit. It didn't seem to dated to me. But the climax of the story relied a bit too heavily on magical technobabble to be wholly effective. #OwnVoices The Bird King G. Willow Wilson The opening was a bit loose, and at first I thought the book had a bit of a tin ear. I respect the political points that were being addressed, but it felt a little clumsy. But the ending, and the overall message of the book was very strong. I'm really glad I finished this one. LitRPG Accidental Thief Jamie Davis and C. L. Davis I know the authors of this series, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a fairly straightforward story that reads like a gaming session transcript. I got it from the library and it was a good listen while playing video games. I may continue with the series, but it's not high on my TBR. Five SFF Short Stories Galactic Empires Neil Clarke (Editor) Last year, I read some sword and sorcery and underwater horror. So, to shake it up: space opera short stories! Lots of good stuff here, some that I had difficulty getting through. One of my unexpected favorites is "All the Painted Stars" by Gwendolyn Clare.
