Random question, but is that a balloon dog chew toy beside you? My terrier has one! Most on focus – thanks for a couple new TBR’s!

ArtBooksLife Denise D Cooper says:

I read The strange library, is that a kids book? I remember it being strange as all get out LOL

kasia says:

Hahaha I loved the exasperated Nutella :p

distant_sounds says:

The Book of Strange New Things is my favourite book. I’ve read some fantastic novels over the last few years, but that one stands at the top.

Kathy Trithardt says:

I just got my naked hardback of Jen’s book in the mail last night, and did a little happy dance with it and the proof to the confusion of my roommate.
Packing for Mars (and Mary’s other books) is (are) really amusing; I love her nonfiction style.

Q. Allen says:

I am really curious on The Strange Library. I have always loved science fiction. It has lead me to write my first book, The End Timers. It’s a story about a woman who buys a membership into one of those luxury bunkers. Buy it now on Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077JBHL81
Hopefully one day you will be doing a great review on one of my books!

Excelsior Books says:

I haven’t read any of these. They sound good.

curious hmm says:

su j says:

Happy Thanksgiving Russell – hope you and Dan have a great day with fantastic food.

Patrice Jones says:

I am reading Ancillary Justice in February as a buddy read with Heidi from My Reading Life. It will be my first sci-fi book. I’m so nervous about it.

Jennifer Arnold says:

You reminded me of needing to read The Book of Strange New Things. Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving from L.A.!

robert elder says:

Happy Thanksgiving! I can not wait for the stuffing and gravy, candied sweet potato! I am still reading Everything I Never Told You.

Chris Bookish Cauldron says:

Boo to working on Friday! Maybe Friday would be a good day for you to catch a *cough cough* cold. Oh very intriguing picks. I have been meaning to read Ancillary Justice for the longest time. I don’t read much sci fi but one of my fave books of all time is technically a sci fi book, Flowers for Algernon. So maybe I need to branch out more. Lovely recommendations! Happy reading 🙂

Mel's Bookland Adventures says:

Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

James Holder says:

Some interesting books I’ll have to look up when I have time.
I read Ancillary Justice a few years ago and didn’t make it past the second chapter. I really did not like it at the time. But, I may change my mind if I ever give it another go. Which I should probably do in the new year.

The Steam Powered Wife says:

Are there any instances or flashbacks where someone loses a young child in Ex-heroes? I want to read it but I don’t like zombies + little kids!

Susan Frances says:

May I suggest ‘A Glimpse Beyond the Aether”?  New Sci Fi / Romance by Susan Frances, published by Pegasus.  It is about a future that has absolute knowledge of what happens to us when we die.  Imagine the implications.

Yesica1993 says:

Some of these I had not read. But I did read The Book of Strange New Things. It was so haunting! I may have to re-read it. I have also wanted to read The Sparrow.

I’m new here and loving your channel.

The Nerd Girl Reads says:

These are some great recs! I’ve have crimson petal and the white on my tbr for ages! Will add the book of strange new things to that too.

MegTheMaven says:

Definitely adding Ex-Heroes and The Book of Strange New Things to my TBR!

Sydney P. says:

Thank you for your suggestions!! May I suggest Sarah King’s Zero series? It’s an amazing sci-fi story with a great plot and catchy characters.

The Steam Powered Wife says:

I’m currently reading The Book of Strange New Things. Loving it!

Cheryl Holsonbake says:

Oooh! Read Ann Leckie’s book! So good!

The Bookish Land says:

I defiantly need to read Jen’s books! Heard so many good things about it. Thanks for the recs!

Getting Hygge With It says:

Love this! I have book of strange new things but haven’t read it yet. Ancillary Justice fell of my radar so I’m super intrigued by that one!

Cami Castle says:

I love it when you do these books you may have missed videos. I missed all of these and they all sound great! Thank you!

Louise AStrongBeliefinWicker says:

I was doing really well avoiding temptation until you got to the Murakami… I’ve never heard that he’d written a children’s book. Oh and my library has a print and audio copy! I’ll have to check it out.
