Book review: Progress Report

Progress Report


Progress Report,
by Roman Lando
239 pages
on 12/9/2022
Scifi technothriller

Ecopy received from the author for review

These days, I rarely request a review copy and even less often accept one. But when Roman Lando contacted me about his self-published scifi technothriller, I thought the genre had some potential. I was hooked when I read the synopsis and the first pages.
I am so glad I accepted to read Progress Report. I devoured it in a couple of days and can close my 2022 reviews with a bang!

Book review: Upgrade


by Blake Crouch
Ballantine Books
352 pages
Science Fiction/Thriller


The last book I received for review took me forever  to finish, as I found it quite boring.
It just took a few days for Upgrade, which I avidly devoured. This was my first try with Blake Crouch, and now I really want to read his two previous books.

Friday Face Off: Under the Sea

Friday Face Off

The Friday Face-Off was originally created by Books by Proxy:
each Friday, bloggers showcase book covers on a weekly theme.
Visit Lynn’s Books (@LynnsBooks) for a list of upcoming themes.
Please visit also Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy (@tammy_sparks)
thanks to whom I discovered this meme.

This week, the theme is
“Under the Sea”

I’m finally back! Last time was in March… Time flies.
For this week theme, this famous French classic scifi came to mind. That could be a nice incentive to reread it!
I still remember the gorgeous Jules Verne editions I read it as a child:

Vingt mille lieues

Bu there are other really neat covers:

Friday face off Under the sea

The choice was very difficult this week: I basically love each cover!
My favorite today is the last one, which is the Barnes & Noble 2012 Leather Bound edition.
It actually reminds me a bit of the style of my childhood edition, this time in blue.

Next Friday:
“Sparkling like the sea – a cover that is turquoise”
