Andy Weir Author Spotlight: Reviews Of The Martian And Artemis

Andy Weir Author Spotlight On Novels And NonfictionWhen I first watched the movie version of The Martian, I had no idea that it was based on a novel. I also didn’t know that the author of that novel, Andy Weir, had first published The Martian in chapters on his blog, then self-published it on kindle, before seeing it rise into a successful work of fiction and adapted into a movie a few years later.

That’s definitely a crazy ride for any aspiring author, and I think The Martian is such a beautifully crafted work combining science, adventure and sentiment that Weir deserves all the strong praise he has received for it.

When I received an ARC of Artemis on Net Galley, I decided to read both books by Weir back-to-back and I think that may have been a mistake. Unfortunately, for all of the strength of The Martian, Artemis felt like a definite sophomore slump to me. Read my full reviews below to find out why.

10 November 2017 Book Releases I’m Looking Forward To

Ten November 2017 Book Release I'm Looking Forward To On Novels And Nonfiction

Every month, I pick 5 nonfiction and 5 fiction books being released that month that sound like good reads to me, based on my personal preference in topics and genres, as well as advance reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.

In this month’s list, I’m definitely most excited about Prairie Fires on the nonfiction side and Artemis on the fiction side. I’ve already requested both on Net Galley and have reviews scheduled for later in the month. Other picks from this list that are still available for request on Net Galley (for the bloggers out there) are Little Broken Things and The Story Of Arthur Truluv.

Hopefully you find something here that catches your eye!
