Sci-Fi 2019 - The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Recursion by Blake Crouch + 50/50 Friday


This week I'm spotlighting one of my Sci-Fi Month 2019 reads (Image credit: Photo by Sebastien Decoret on 123RF.com with a quote from This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone), Recursion by Blake Crouch.  I'm so excited to pick this up just because Dark Matter was so amazing.  Plus, I've heard only good things about this as well.

Beginning:

Barry Sutton pulls over into the fire lane at the main entrance of the Poe Building, an Art Deco tower glowing white in the illumination of its exterior sconces.

56:

For a moment, the man just breathes heavily into the phone.  Barry thinks he hears a woman also crying in the background, but he isn't sure.

50/50 Friday: Book You Read In A Day/ Book You DNF'd


Read In One Day The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson, Clayton Cowles - I feel like I haven't mentioned just how much I loved this when I read it back in October.


Book You DNF'd - Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman - I wanted to love this, but I ended up giving it up at 25% through it.


What are you reading this weekend?  Are you taking part in Sci-Fi Month this year?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
