where the heck have I been? The motherfuggin Expanse. That’s where.
I know I haven’t blogged in awhile but I have a pretty good reason… James S. A. Corey’s The Expanse series. If you’re a sci-fi geek like me and haven’t heard of these books yet, you will soon enough. They are awesome, especially the first installment Leviathan Wakes. I don’t think fiction can get any more action packed or exciting than this. Seriously. It’s like a decade’s worth of hollywood summer blockbusters condensed into one hell of a space opera. The second and third books, Calliban’s War and Abaddon’s Gate, don’t disappoint either. I really think this is the first book series to really sweep my off my feet. I went from one book to another without putting them down. I now know how all my nerdy friends must have felt reading all those Harry Potter books… except Harry Potter is kinda lame and The Expanse series kicks ass. Well, in my opinion at least. So anyway, there the Expanse series is comprised of the three main novels that I’ve mentioned but also a ebook novelette and a short story. But if that isn’t enough for you, the fourth novel, Cibola Burn, is on it’s way and I can’t wait. And, to just add to my excitement, news broke a few weeks ago that a television series is already in the works. AWE. SOME. Now what are you waiting for? Read these darn books so I have somebody to talk about them with!
