4 Science Fiction Books to Read in April

Welcome to April, everybody! I know it's already April 4th, but I literally thought of this yesterday, so, better late than never? This month I've decided to set a reading goal. I want to finish/read four books before the 30th. And I have declared this month, Sci-Fi Month.

I am going to finish The Remembrance of Earth's Past Trilogy, by Cixin Liu. I finished book one, The Three-Body Problem a couple of weeks ago, and I am almost done with book two, The Dark Forest. I decided to hold off on a review until I finish the whole trilogy. Death's End is book three. I am excited, I am too deep into this story. I have to see how this goes down. Humanity has been preparing for an alien invasion, for centuries. The Doomsday Battle is getting closer.

Another on my list include Artemis, by Andy Wier. This book has been on my TBR list for a while now. Now is a good time to crack it. A space adventure featuring a small-time smuggler on the ever tempting "big score" mission? Yes, please. I just imagine a bank heist story in space. Should be fun.

The last book on my list for this month is Parasite, by Darcy Coates. I found this at Barnes & Noble, read the back, and saw the words "The parasitic alien wears its victims' skins and adopts their personalities." Yeah, of course, I want to read that. I'm thinking something like Body Snatchers on steroids, but we'll find out.

The biggest question is not if I'll read these books. The question is if I can reach my goal of reading them by the end of the month. We will find out. Hopefully, I'll have some reviews to write soon.

So to recap, my reading list for Sci-Fi Month is:

The Dark Forest (Cixin Liu)

Death's End (CIxin Liu)

Artemis (Andy Weir)

Parasite (Darcy Coates)

Happy April everyone! And happy reading!
