Hi everyone! After yesterday’s lengthy posts : Aliens : Comparing and Contrasting Five Diverse Examples and folklore book tag : completely unoriginal post idea but with my very own thoughts I was going to post tomorrow, but when I (finally) found out what WWW Wednesday was after seeing it at The Cosy Corner and an explanation at Caitlin’s blog, I wanted to do it (especially since it’s Wednesday)!
This will be a short, snappy post (I think), don’t worry!
What I Finished Reading
The Dark Forest by Liu Cixin
This is the second book in the Three Body Problem trilogy (I will do a full length book review on this trilogy soon) and it really goes into the nitty gritty of how Earth would react to an alien invasion — on the global scale, political scale, and public scale. It is indescribably impressive how Liu Cixin was able to envision such a world and put it so clearly on paper.
What I Am Currently Reading
Death’s End by Liu Cixin
This is the third and final book in the Three Body Problem trilogy (yep, you guessed it, when I finish this book I can write a review of the trilogy) and I’m a little over halfway through. *SPOILERS AHEAD* When the strained peace between Earth and Trisolaris is shattered after Trisolaris’s betrayal, and the dark forest theory is terminated, Earth goes back to chaos. But when Trisolaris is eliminated by a dark forest strike, Earth must face an even greater threat : the rest of the universe, essentially a massive dark forest. Our home planet has to figure out a way to defend itself from a dark forest strike and broadcast to the rest of the universe that they are harmless. The key to doing this? Three fairy tales.
What I Am Going To Read Next
A Phoenix First Must Burn: Sixteen Stories of Black Girl Magic, Resistance, and Hope by Sixteen Authors : Elizabeth Acevedo, Amerie, Patrice Caldwell, Dhonielle Clayton, J. Marcelle Corrie, Somaiya Daud, Charlotte Nicole Davis, Justina Ireland, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Danny Lore, L. L. McKinney, Danielle Paige, Rebecca Roanhorse, Karen Strong, Ashley Woodfolk, and Ibi Zoboi.
That title is just so pretty 😀 and the summary is fascinating. I put a hold on the ebook version, but unfortunately it won’t be ready for a while. Still, I can’t wait to read this book!
Here are the gorgeous covers of these three books. Images are not mine.
