Book Summary:


A murder... a new planet mankind desperately needs... a thousand-year old conspiracy... What really awaits us on Eden? In a world beset by political turmoil, environmental collapse, and a predatory new religion, a recently discovered planet, Eden, is our last hope. But two missions have failed to return.
Blake Alexander and his crew lead the final attempt to bring back good news. Meanwhile back on Earth, Micah Sanderson evades assassins, and tries to work out who he can trust as he struggles in a race against time to unravel the Eden Paradox.

Book Review:

When I got the opportunity to review The Eden Paradox I was really excited because I really enjoy sci-fi but tend to read much of it so this was the perfect way to do so. I found the book really enjoyable and highly entertaining and would definitely recommend it to those who love sci-fi or those who want to start reading more of it.

I have to admit that I found the plot a little hard to get into at the beginning and do feel like I had to grasp the idea of the story before I really liked it and this was quite slow going for me but once I was into the actual story I really enjoyed where it went. The world building for the story was also really solid and it was definitely a world that had much support gone into it. The plot itself is also really interesting and was something that kept me invested throughout. 

The writing of the story was also something that I really enjoyed and that found it was really interesting that we got to see the story from the different perspectives of characters who were quite developed and who were exciting to follow their journies throughout the story. I was excited to see where the story was going and would definitely be interested in reading the sequel. 

The Verdict:

The Eden Paradox is a solid sci-fi read which is equal parts compelling and enjoyable.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
