Airframe by Michael Crichton. I read the description for this and immediately went out and bought it:
“The twin jet plane en route to Denver from Hong Kong is merely a green radar blip half an hour off the California coast when the call comes through to air traffic control:
‘Social Approach, this is TransPacific 545. We have an emergency.’ The pilot requests priority clearance to land – then comes the bombshell – he needs forty ambulances on the runway”.
It started out good but the conclusion was really kind of disappointing.
Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig. This is partly a handbook for those with depression/ anxiety and partly Matt Haig’s account of his experience with depression. Really good, a must read for people with depression.
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. I read this years ago, probably around the time it came out (which means I must have been about 10) and it was really interesting to read it again. I had forgotten large parts of it and must not have quite fully got all the references to the bible. If you read the His Dark Materials series as a kid I would highly recommend reading it again.
(Not pictured because ebooks are a thing.)
The Ship by by Antonia Honeywell. I was actually going to buy a copy of this so I’m glad I found it on Netgalley. It could have been a really interesting dystopia but was ruined by an annoying main character. See my full review here.
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson. This book was amazing. Its like The Martian but longer and on the International Space Station. Also the first line is “The moon blew up without warning and for no apparent reason“. See my full review here.
