November was a great reading month. I read many books which were on my TBR for quite sometime. I read a total of 8 books, out of which one was a graphical novel. November was also sci-fi month so I read a couple of science fiction books too.
I am a fan of the thriller genre in general, but being a nerd, I prefer sci-fi thrillers. I get the best of both genres – Science Fiction genre and Thriller genre. Sci-fi thrillers usually have some suspense element and are centered around either a creature wreaking havoc to some scientific research or some aliens who decide to destroy Earth or something else which keeps us at the edge of our seat until we are done with the book. These books hook you and are fast paced while also having some hard science elements in them.

I participated in Sci-fi november event this month as mentioned in my introduction post. This was the first time that I participated in this event or any event for that matter. I have never participated in readalongs and blogging events so it was a lot of fun.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch is a fast paced science fiction thriller about multiverses published this year (2016). I saw mixed reviews of this book so I initially thought I will not get a hard copy and instead read an ebook. I read some 25% of the book and lost interest. I then realized few days back that maybe it was because of the format of the book that I did not enjoy it much, as these days I am not able to read on Kindle for some reason (just don’t feel like reading on it). This week I got a hard copy of this book and finished reading it this weekend. And you know what, I absolutely loved it.
