If you enjoyed and lol’ed (in some places) while reading Andy Weir‘s (see Andy Weir’s interview) The Martian (read book review here), the story of an astronaut Mark Watney, who struggles to survive, alone on the red planet. Maybe, you’d watched the movie directed by Ridley Scott, in which Matt Damon portray’s Mark Watney. Maybe, you just more of the red planet. Whichever the case is, you’d want to take a look at these books.
In 2017, I started my voracious reading journey with the word “productivity” in mind. In my workflow, I wanted to be as productive as I could but later realise that it has its limitations. First limitation that I come across as I continued on my path as I found that there is a vast field and there are sub-niches that fall under that word. I had to make a decision on how will I benefit more in terms of productivity itself but more importantly having/developing that mindset? I came across 28 books throughout the year. Few were recommendations from people who share similar goals as mine and few were picks of my own.

I have managed to gather around a list of books that are available this month for Science Fiction and Fantasy fans.
The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2017 by J. J. Adams and Charles Yu | 384 pages
Science fiction and fantasy can encompass so much, from far-future deep-space sagas to quiet contemporary tales to unreal kingdoms and beasts. But what the best of these stories do is the same across the genres—they illuminate the whole gamut of the human experience, interrogating our hopes and our fears.
In the first part of this list series, I did include most of the titles that I have already read. In this list too, I am prohibiting common, well known books like Harry Potters, A Song of Ice and Fire, Fight Club. These are the books that readers are highly familiar with and there is high chance that most of us have seen the movies/tv-series and read the books. This list is also not specific to any genre.
Blurb: Edited by Christopher Tolkien, attempts to extract the story of Beren and Lúthien from the comprehensive work of The Silmarillion, in which it was embedded; but that story was itself changing as it developed new associations within the larger history.
I recently got my hands on Buzz Books 2017 Spring and Summer edition. After reading many excerpts, I am excited to share some titles that I am eagerly looking to read this year. Yet, I might not be able to read and finish all of them, the sole purpose of sharing these titles right now is that if you decide to read any of them, I hope to read your views on them.
