Series gets off to a fantastic start with this blistering action-packed alien
contact story set in a dystopian earth featuring two remarkably gutsy female
leads, rebelling against the ruling tyrants.
I confess I haven’t read
the prequel stories, Avendui 5ive set
in the same world or the earlier works of PK
Tyler. But when I got a review copy, my interest was piqued by the
“Margaret Atwood of the indie scene” comparison. And after having rushed
through this one, I am definitely looking to reading anything else from her. A
year, when xenophobia has been termed
as the word of the year by Dictionary.com, this book truly brings out a
different dimension to that word. A startlingly original novel, The Jakkattu Vector is the first in a
series that chronicles a disturbing contact story of aliens arriving on a
ravaged earth destroyed by environmental disasters, but with veiled intentions
and genetic experiments that go horribly wrong. The story begins on an

I have already been crooning about my die-hard love for Blake Crouch - His latest, Dark Matter - a twisted dark pretzel of a delightful science-fiction thriller was the icing on a noteworthy career full of glorious books. I first came across him before Wayward Pines became a TV Series.
And now this - Good Behavior hit the small screens across America on TNT a month back and is raking up the TRP's, purportedly one of the best shows after Southland.

When I was approached for a blog tour of Remember Yesterday, I jumped for the chance. As I had really enjoyed the opening chapter in the series, Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn and along with the rest of the world, was waiting with bated breath about the fate of Callie Stone and the world she was trying to save.
A YA sci-fi with time-travel forming a critical part of the narrative, the first book was definitely a hit with the readers - mainly because of the delightful world built up and also how Pintip chose to portray her heroine, Callie Stone - a strong and level-headed girl, selfless to a fault; her ultimate sacrifice that probably prevents the world from plunging into a disaster. But after that ultimate shocker of an ending, Pintip comes back with an even stronger sequel - raising questions about time-travel with some breezy recap on this world-altering incident. Did it really save the world and her sister Jessa ?
As I plunged back into this familiar, well realized world, set some…
