Amazon has a list of the year’s best books. What we care about is the Sci-fi list, so here it is:

I’ve already bought Oathbringer and Artemis.

Of the rest, Persepolis Rising is definitely on my list. David Wong’s “What the Hell Did I Just Read” is also on there, I loved the last book.

Ann Leckie has no chance of ever getting my time, ever again.

The Book of Dust is getting passed around all the time in my social media echo chamber, so I’ll give it a shot.

What else should I add to my TBR pile?

Ada’s Blog: The Luggage

It’s from Discworld. The Luggage is from Discworld. I didn’t realise it at first, but somehow, subconsciously, I always wanted a storage bin to follow me around and eat people. Okay, maybe the last part needs a bit of tweaking, but still.

Not pictured: Me.

Pratchett’s stories have always been an escape for me. I absolutely adore Tiffany Aching, a little witch-in-training with whom I can totally relate. But the Luggage was a bit of Discworld that I always enjoyed, that unstoppable force, that magical trunk that overcame mountains and deserts to get back to his owner.
I love my Luggage. It rolls behind me, carrying my stuff like a faithful servant. No more aching shoulders, no more tingly fingers from all the heavy groceries. I love its blue LEDs, the whirring of its servos.
I LOVE IT.
It doesn’t love me back. The AI is not quite there yet, but I’ve done a few mods. We’ll see. It’s learning already.
