So…just finished Infinity’s Reach…
Just over a week ago now, I mentioned that I’ll be reading and reviewing nothing but indie books for the next little while. I only realized quite recently just how large the self-pub scene has become and I’d never even considered such books prior to starting this blog. However, having come across the blogs of several independent authors in my short time on WordPress, I decided that I should really give indie books a chance. I therefore went ahead and downloaded a number of such books, with Infinity’s Reach at the top of my list.
I’ll be honest: I was really hoping I’d like this book. After making my original post, I really wanted to start this series of reviews on a positive note. That said, I finished reading this book a few hours ago, and…it’s not looking good. I haven’t started the review yet, but I can say right now that it won’t be pretty. Honestly, I feel a bit bummed to be saying this.
On a brighter note, the next book on my reading list is Other Systems, by Elizabeth Guizzetti. I’ve been looking forward to reading this one for a while, partly because of the gorgeous cover art (see here) and partly because the blurb, displayed below, sounds utterly fascinating. It’s a big book – Amazon estimates its page count to be just shy of 600 – but it really sounds like something I could get into.
Without an influx of human DNA, the utopian colony on Kipos has eleven generations before it reaches failure. Earth is over ninety light-years away. Time is short.
Expect a full review of Infinity’s Reach in the next few days.
