I recently asked on Reddit for the Best Sci-fi they ever read LOL I’m not posting the link here because you’re going to find my reddit account and let’s say it’s filled with secrets ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hyperion was highly recommended by a lot of people, following byย The Expanse series by James SA Corey andย The Culture series by Iain M. Banks. The Book of The New Sun by Gene Wolfe is also worth mentioning and lastly, Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie.

The Black Company – This epic fantasy sounds too fun to pass on. I keep on stacking up so many books of this genre, I really need to read some fantasy soon before I collapse from withdrawal.

Hyperion – Don’t tell me you haven’t seen this one at least once before. I need me some more science fiction in my life.

Gardens of the Moon – Recent discovery thanks to Bookstooge. He even showcased some specific editions with really astonishing cover art. Can’t NOT try this out.

The Fifth Heart – A Sherlock Holmes story by the author of Hyperion. Why not? ๐Ÿ˜€

Marvel 1602 – I recently read Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader by Neil Gaiman (A Batman story). Who wouldn’t want to see his contribution to Marvel’s side of the world now? He seems to be quite fond of Andy Kubert’s art too. Not surprised ย by that though! ๐Ÿ˜€

Lashaan:ย A return to University with the end of the Holidays definitely took away a lot of that precious time I would have put in to check out the never-ending list of movies/shows I want to watch. I still managed to check out some really good ones though. I especially have to mention that Sherlock’s S04E02, The Lying Detective, was one of the best episodes ever! Good Will Hunting was one truly beautiful movie with an incredible cast. I’m surprised I haven’t seen this movie before. I also watched The Infiltrator with Bryan Cranston and man… was he awesome. But let’s also mention how beautiful Diane Kruger is <3. The Force Awakens (I needed to finish the past two trilogies first!) and I’m quite impressed by J.J. Abrams direction! Star Wars is in good hands, I say! ๐Ÿ˜€ I also binged through every episode of Black Mirror after the release of Season 3 on Netflix. Goddamn, some of the episodes are truly mind-boggling!

If you’ve seen any of these, feel free to mention it in the comment section. I’d love to fanboy with y’all! ๐Ÿ˜€

Trang: I started The OA on Netflix ย recently and it made me think of Vicious by Victoria E.Schwab! ๐Ÿ˜€1481614058_oa

Lashaan: There hasn’t been too many newly announced movie trailers during January, but man were there a bunch of TV show announcements (and there return after the mid-season break)! One of the shows I’m truly looking forward to is Season 5 of House of Cards! With American politics being in such a mess nowadays, I think an alternative reality that is essentially fictional (maybe… somewhat… better) wouldn’t be so bad for my conscience! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you all for checking out our monthly wrap-up and donโ€™t forget to check out any posts that might interest you and that you might have missed out on!

So whatโ€™s going on on all of your minds? What have you discovered this month? What are your thoughts on the books/TV shows/movies weโ€™ve mentioned?

Yours truly,

LASHAAN & TRANG
