What I’m Reading:
I’m currently in literary love with Martha Well’s first book in the Murderbot series, All Systems Red. Yowza! This is not what I expected when I started hearing the term ‘Murderbot’ everywhere I went. Murderbot is a clone/robot with a dark past and an introverted nature who hacked their governor module to achieve free will. They just want to watch their soap operas, but now they have to protect their human crew on a hostile planet and-ugh!-the humans keep talking to them. Looks like I’ll be catching up on the other Murderbot books in the series this fall.
