2016 Goodreads summary

Hello people!

How was Christmas? Any bookish gifts? Well I didn’t get any, but I got some fantastic ones, so I’m totally happy :D.

Anyway, Goodreads already prepared a standard yearly summary and I think now’s the time to share it with you since I think that’s pretty much how it will look like at the end of the year. Not that I won’t be reading, but I don’t think I’ll actually finish anything by then.

If you’re curious about what I’ve read and how I rated it here’s the GR summary of this year in books:

Merry Christmas!

I want to wish you all the best Christmas! I wish you all the perfect gifts both bookish and not :).

Make your family happy and your pets feel cuddly.

Eat just as much as you want and still be able to stand up :D.

And I wish you some quiet time just for you and one of your new books ;-).

 

Stars, time travel and a mystery to solve

I didn’t expect to like this story so much. I like Star Trek shows, but I’ve never read graphic novels or books, so that was something new to me and I didn’t know what to expect. It was worth it 🙂

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This story mixes two timelines, one when Uhura, Spock, and Kirk are still at the academy – Uhura stumbles upon a strange transmission and tries to solve the mystery. Unfortunately, the academy doesn’t want this information to get out.  And the other part of the story that takes place a few years later and follows brand new recruits with T’laan being the main heroine here. These guys are still in training and on one of their missions they get into a space-time disturbance and find the source of Uhura’s signal from years ago. The thing is, for the people inside not much time had passed. Continue reading “Stars, time travel and a mystery to solve”
