I spent the last 6 months reading. A lot. Mostly science fiction books, some poetry and some other interesting stuff. I loved it.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. All System Red by Martha Wells. The Three Body Problem trilogy by Cixin Liu. Binti by Nnedi Okorafor. Supercute Futures by Martin Millar. (more…)
