Five Fun Science Fiction Novels to Read in 2019



What makes these five (well, six) reads so awesome? They're all self-published.

Show these authors some love by checking out their work and leaving a review. :)


The Girl From Thandar (Synchronicity Book 1)


"When college co-ed, Scarlett, wakes up she knows something is off, but she has no idea just how off! Finding herself on a ship going god knows where Scarlett realizes she’s in trouble. Trouble turns out to be an intergalactic hell hole where slavery, prostitution and violence are not only accepted, but are the bread and butter of corrupt governments, criminals and raiders."


The Inter-Terrestrial: volume 1


"An alien scientist has a half-human "inter-terrestrial" son on the primitive planet of Earth. Aliens from neighboring planets (Mars and Venus) think they own the Earth and are adamant that it not be used by higher species without their consent. For twenty years, this alien father has been trying to figure out a way to get back to this forbidden planet to see his son, desperately looking for an opportunity to present itself."


"'Dookimon' is the hottest TV show in the galaxy. Broadcast from a space cube orbiting Uranus, it is a place where those who are genetically unique (mutants) can come to shine. But when the cube's central computer becomes self-aware and starts abducting innocent mutants, it is up to Charlie, an inter-terrestrial child of two worlds, to rescue them with his amazing powers and an unlikely robotic ally."


"A dishonourable discharge left Margo unable to find honest work on Earth. Signing onto a colonizing mission heading to a new world promised a fresh start. Or at least that's what she'd thought. 
Strapped into a crashing colony ship, she realized how wrong she'd been."

"Willow Grace is a brilliant medical student who enjoys partying just a little too much. Nych Haywiyth is an engineering student with an underground lab and a dirty little secret. The two of them were never meant to come together. "


Honorable Mention:

Lives Of E


"After an accident involving a quantum computer built by his best friend, Erik's life changes. Almost every day, it seems. At first he notices subtle changes in his life. Other days the differences are so extreme that he begins to question whether he is going insane or if he is just having a lucid dream. Unfortunately for Erik, figuring out what is really happening to him will be nowhere near as difficult as finding out if there is a way to make it stop."

  1. I love the idea of a self-published book. Science fiction is not my usual genre, but these sound fun.

    1. Sci Fi has so many subgenres that I believe there's a science fiction book for everyone - I hope you find one that strikes your fancy! ;)

⛤ How I Fell In Love With Crystals ⛤

When I was eight years old, I accompanied my grandmother to Washington state to visit my uncle, who lived out there with his wife at the time. While there, we took a trip up to Mount Rainier - driving up the windy, fogged-covered roads in an old pick-up truck and stopping for herds of silently moving deer crossing the pavement. There were a couple of stops along the way to admire a small waterfall or nab a photo of the rushing creak water under a bridge. 
But it was up at the top, inside the gift shop, that I found something that spoke to me.
There was a large bin of gemstones, each of them available for about $0.25. I remember digging through pieces of jagged chunks of amethyst and quartz until my tiny child fingers wrapped around the perfect one.


Like pulling the sword from the stone, I was meant to have this particular piece of quartz. Rounded and cloudy at the end, with a sharp pyramid tip, it was exactly the kind of quartz crystal you'd expect to see at the end of a magic wand o…

Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

Etiquette is a tricky realm in which to maneuver. Often, it varies from place to place and country to country. What's polite in one area of the world (slurping your noodles in Japan = 🖒) could be considered unfathomably rude elsewhere. So, let's approach this from a modern, millennial etiquette perspective, shall we?

Five Etiquette Rules I (Personally) Find Pointless

1.) Handwritten Thank You Notes- I try to be an environmentally friendly and conscious individual, truly I do. And I think that is perhaps why I have such a beef with "thank you" cards. Actually, any cards. Holiday cards, birthday cards, get-well-soon cards....it's all just paper. And it's all going to end up in the trash or recycling.

That tree died for something I glanced at for 30 seconds. If you truly want to thank me for something or wish me well, just email or text. Let me know in person next time you see me. If we are bosom buddies, you may even have permission to call and tell me.

2.) A…

The Goal-Getter Playbook Review

Work has been hectic lately; there have been a lot of changes within the company I work for and while change is inevitable (and usually good) it can leave me feeling a little scattered and directionless. 
So it was the perfect time to look at setting some goals for myself, determining what I'm truly passionate about and what steps I need to take to turn that passion into something that works for me, instead of against me. 
Enter The Goal-Getter Playbook:

The Goal-Getter Playbook is so much more expansive and in-depth than any other life planner I've ever considered - and it goes way beyond career planning - this playbook will help you organize, manage, and maximize your entire life. No stone is left unturned here. 
Now, I need to preface: I'm not a "goal setter". I don't like plans or schedules, time blocking, penciling in self-care, color-coding my Outlook calendar, etc. I'm more of a go-with-the-flow, works well last minute and under pressure, que sera s…
