Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
Star Trek - Alan Dean Foster I’ll be honest and risk having my geek cred revoked—I’m not a Star Trek fan. I don’t hate it, I just never got into it; I’ve only seen a handful of episodes (largely DS9 and Voyager); most of my working knowledge of the series comes from Futurama, Galaxy Quest and geek osmosis, and I did see the 2009 film. Which is why I saved this book from work, thought I could give it go and see what happens. It’s an enjoyable read, if cheesy and stilted and purpley at times. Foster does bring a touch of humor into the text, which offsets the darker scenes in the book, but otherwise, it’s a standard novelization. The main reason this gets a two star (more closer to two and a half) is because of the aforementioned circumstances. I didn’t hate the book, but it’s not my thing.
