How I Learned to Love Sci Fi with Doctor Who, a guest post by author Annie Cardi
Yes, I admit, it’s sci-fi. It’s also about the horrors of war and how we all try to survive and protect those we love.
Another book I refused to admit was sci-fi, and one of my all-time favorite books. I love its examination of how we need to experience all kinds of emotions—even the ones that cause us pain.
A quieter YA sci-fi novel than most, but compelling. What I liked most about this novel is how it’s about Jenna trying to discover what defines us as human.
