Does Good Sci-Fi Need to be Realistic? (and is it really different from fantasy?)

There can be a fine line between science fiction and fantasy, so much so that they can occasionally be hard to distinguish from one another. So what makes the two genres different?

Wonderful Books to Read in One Sitting

It's really difficult to find the time to read a book in a single sitting. It's even rarer to find a book that CAN be read in a single sitting. But sometimes I come across a book that is just so easy to glide through - like they were designed to be devoured in a day. Here are 10 lovely books that I think you can do just that with.

The Upside of Unrequited // a truckload of diversity and relatable experiences

Before I even picked up The Upside of Unrequited I was quite nervous to read it. I loved Becky Albertalli's debut novel, and I didn't want to find myself comparing the two. But despite the two stories existing in the same world, they ended up feeling very separate. And although I didn't like it as much as I loved Simon, I found that Upside was cute and relatable in a whole different way.

5 E-ARCs I Need to Read

I've been marvellously on top of my Netgalley and Edelweiss requests this year. Instead of focusing on catching up with older requests, I've been reading my newer requests the month they are released so they don't pile up. That way I can publish my reviews in good time in the hype build up around the release dates. However, that does leave a couple of ARCs that I need to reserve for further down the line, not to mention a few e-copies I requested many moons ago back when I was a mess and when the releases had come and gone. That leaves a total of 5 books that I really ought to be reading this year, and I'm hoping with this post I can get some encouragement on which books to read next!

My Spring TBR

I'm looking to mix it up with a bunch of different genres this Spring, so my TBR for the season is pretty varied. I have some Historical Ficiton, 2 Sherlock Holmes adaptations, 3 Contemporaries, and 3 books by Sci-Fi/Fantasy books by Laura Lam that I'm hoping to get through.
