Reading the 2nd Red Sparrow book. Really good for any one that likes spy novels.

To be fair this book relates to how Academia and Scientists themselves are doing sloppy work and cutting corners in order to get papers published in order to move their own careers along and hopefully secure more fundings to float their own boat.

The second book is more historical fiction and less romance novel but still not exactly my cup of tea.
I'm kind of surprised you bothered reading the second one if you didn't care for the first.

I enjoyed the historical fiction aspect of it and was interested in the story. I didn't care for the romance novel bit. I had 3 other books on hold (I read on my ipad and check out books through out library) and figured I would give the second one a shot.

Also- Just finished the 2nd in the Red Sparrow series. Very fun and fast read. Now to find something new.

If you're still looking for something to read I highly recommend The Martian. Not particularly new, but one of my favorite recent books.

Absolutely loved it. I ended up reading it in a few days. For anyone that enjoys reading- if you haven't read it I highly recommended it.

I did enjoy that one, but what I found really inspiring was the author's own story. Not so much about him - though he's a really smart guy with the technical knowledge to back his stories - but the process about which he originally got the book published. Basically, he's a blogger who published through Amazon.

Just finished "The Fire Line" by Fernanda Santos. It is the true store of 19 heroes who perished in a brush fire in 2013 in Yarnel AZ. Most of these guys work seasonally for very low wages and NO health or life insurance benefits. Being from the North East it is something I knew very little about. Many homes are built, and continue to be built, in areas in the Southwest that are put in direct harms way come fire season.
