As a precursor to the launch of our new theme, we counted down to the review of our 100th book on Pinterest. If you missed it, here are the 10 books featured in our countdown.
Number 100: Rat Queens
We are impressed with this new series from Image Comics, which features a bad-ass mercenary group of female fighters who put the ‘sexy back into wholesale slaughter.’
Number 99: Ancillary Justice
Number 98: The Wicked
We’ve been working on filling out our fantasy selection, and this delightful historical fantasy was a perfect addition to our library.
Number 97: Wonder Woman Unbound
I can’t resist a good superhero history, and Wonder Woman Unbound was a fascinating look at the strange history of this iconic character.
Number 96: A Calculated Life
How far will intelligence take you? A Calculated Life is another Philip K. Dick award nominee.
Number 95: The Empire Striketh Back
Until we read Shakespeare’s Star Wars we never realized the bard was such a perfect fit with one of our favorite sci-fi franchises. Of course we had to feature the sequel.
Number 94: Countdown City
Number 93: The Martian
We can’t say enough about how much we love this book. It’s everything we wish NASA was mixed with great geeky humor and thrown into the riveting type action of Apollo 13. There’s even a second review!
Number 92: The Tropic of Serpents
I couldn’t wait for the sequel to A Natural History of Dragons. Tropic of Serpents is just as amazing as the first book, a mix of 19th century memoir with dragons.
Number 91: Self-Reference ENGINE
What a bizarre book. The space-time continuum is all wonky, there are Freuds under the floorboards and anthropomorphic socks. It’s interesting experimental sci-fi, and a 2013 PKD nominee.
