And here's one more from the library: Mercury Heat. I saw this go by several weeks ago and was really intrigued by the premise. Mercury is ridiculously hot on it's sun-facing side, and ridiculously cold on the other side. Between the two there's a temperate zone where it's right around Earth-temperatures. So Mercury has been colonized by a nomadic workforce who has to keep moving to stay alive. They're building solar panels to trap the sun's energy, which is then transported to Earth.
Meet Luiza Bora. Her personality-type, 57B, made her dreams of being a police officer on Earth impossible. So she's moved to Mercury. Her first assignment is to investigate the death of someone. It could have been an accident. But as more and more people try to kill her the more she investigates, it suddenly strongly smells of murder.
If you like a strong, sensibly-dressed female-action hero and aren't offended by seeing people's heads kicked in, Mercury Heat is for you! I honestly can't wait for volume 2!
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
