Science fiction – Escapist fiction. So What?

It is true that science fiction and fantasy genre is often regarded as an escapist fiction. As an avid reader of fiction books, I can honestly say that books of any genre can be an escape from reality. On the contrary, I prefer reading realistic fiction to escape reality. It is infinitely easier to get sucked into the life of the characters who live in the real world. The real world works on simple principles that all of us are already familiar with so I don’t need to focus on how the world works. Whereas, science fiction and fantasy have their own set of rules and unique principles that govern their world. They inspire me to think on an intellectually different level than what an average realistic fiction book can provide.

Top 10 Tuesday: The Good and The Bad of 2018

Finally, I decided to do another TTT. This one is hosted at thatartsyreadergirl.  Check out her prompts, if you guys want to join in.

Feb Wrap Up- A month of Thrillers

I cannot believe February is over already.  At the beginning of the month, I had too much energy for blogging, maybe that's why halfway through the month, the energy sort of fizzled out. And now, its the end of the month already, and I only have half-written drafts, which I have no motivation to complete.  Anywhoo, I have finally found the motivation to write a wrap-up post. 😀  FEBRUARY- A month of mostly Crime/Mystery/Thrillers.
