MollyK | 209 comments 1. Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire
Urban Fantasy
-Will absolutely continue the series. Loved it!

2. The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin
Si-Fi Hugo Award winner
- Very different but I think I will finish the series.

3. Planetfall by Emma Newman
Si-Fi
- Disappointing ending but I may check out more works, since I loved the first part.

4. Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch, #1) by Ann Leckie
Si-Fi Hugo Award winner
Confusing, but I liked it. Will read more.

5. Binti (Binti #1) by Nnedi Okorafor

Disappointing. Might try another book since she is so highly praised.

6. Cat Pictures Please by Naomi Kritzer

It was cute so I will likely read more works.
