📚 seven of 2020: The Rosewater Insurrection by Tade Thompson ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As fascinating as the first book, this tale of invasion broadens the scope, giving more detail on the alien invaders and moving to a multiple viewpoint narrative. Really enjoying this series.

📚 six of 2020: Rosewater, by Tade Thompson ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really neat blend of alien invasion, psychic abilities, and the Nigerian setting. As with 2017 #PKDickAward nominee After the Flare by Deji Bryce Olukotun, I really enjoy the non-Western setting and influences.

It’s this year’s Philip K. Dick Award nominees (plus two, as one nominee was the third book in a trilogy)! 📚

Ada Hoffman, The Outside
Megan E. O’Keefe, Velocity Weapon
Susan Palwick, All Worlds Are Real
Sarah Pinsker, Sooner or Later Everything Falls Into the Sea
Tade Thompson, The Rosewater Redemption
Sarah Tolmie, The Little Animals

📚 three of 2020: Dune, by Frank Herbert ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1966 Hugo Best Novel

This one (mostly) holds up well; still an excellent book, with its mix of SF adventure, ecological messages, political maneuvering, and religious themes. Well worth the re-read after many years.
