Reading project, week ending 7 Jul 2019

What have I read this week?

A Highly Unlikely Scenario, or a Neetsa Pizza Employee’s Guide to Saving the World by Rachel Cantor

This is a science fiction novel about Leonard, an employee of Neetsa Pizza in a future version of Earth. I thought this was okay. It was interesting, but I kept feeling like it was meant to be funny, but I didn’t find it amusing.

Steampunk! an Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant

This is an anthology of steampunk stories. I liked this a lot. There was a good variety in the different stories.

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

This is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel about a girl called Lynn who lives with her mother next to a pond which they need to defend against all comers. I thought this was okay; it didn’t quite work for me, but I did finish it.

Before the Broken Star (The Evermore Chronicles Book 1) by Emily R. King

This is a fantasy novel about a young woman called Everley who has a clockwork heart and is seeking revenge for her family’s murder. I quite enjoyed this, and might read the next one.
