Sleeping Giants is a debut novel of Sylvan Neuvel. The first book of Themis Files series. that will hit the shelves on April 2016. It is described as in between WWZ and the Martian but, since I haven't read any of them I would compare this book with what I know better. This is a mix between X-files and Fringe tv shows. How cool is that?
What first caught me was the cover, simple and captivating with this beautiful turquoise colored square with that strange symbol in the middle. Sleeping Giants is a mix of sci-fi and fantasy with political involvement, a mad scientist, mythology and lots of conspiracy.

I needed two days to collect my feelings and thoughts about my last reading: The Gracekeeper written by Kirsty Logan, published by Harvill Secker in 2015. I don't even know where to start. This book was a blast. Just after a few pages Logan style caught me and I was lost in her waterword, I smell the salt in the wind and heard the swush of waves on the boats. This book is one of those kind of books that I do not simply like or love, is all of this thing and even more.  Kirsty Logan manage to piant a gourgeous and colorful setting.

am a fan of Mitchell work, just put his name on a book and I am sold . The book is published by RandomHouse just in time for Halloween in a date that is not left to chance. Trust me, this is THE book you want to spend a stormy night with curled up under the covers feeling the chills through the spine. Definitely one of the best spooky stories of my all life. After reading online enthusiastic reviews about “Slade House” I had really high expectations and I am pleased to say, I wasn’t disappointed. 

Read  David Mitchell’s book fills my head and gives me satisfaction. In “The Bone Clocks” as well as in the much more famous, and my absolute favorite “Cloud Atlas”, the story is not linear, but rather arranged in a concentric structure. It is six stories, each set in different moments of Holly Sykes’s life , in a span of time from 1984 until 2043. And it is the time, its flow, which constantly stand in the  background of this story.
