12. Abaddon's Gate

By James S.A. Corey (539 pp)

Abaddon's Gate is Expanse #3. There are 2 others published and one coming out in November. Then I have to wait like everyone else. I also have read almost all the novellas but I'm not going to put them up here. Love these books so much. Amos is my new favorite fictional character. More Amos. In this one, the protomolecule has built a weird gate and all kinds of science and military ships are going out to investigate. Then a ship gets blown up and its blamed on Holden and all kinds of crazy stuff happens. Recommend.

11. The Games

by Ted Kosmatka (305 pp ebook)

The Games was recommended on a forum I'm on and I finally grabbed a copy. When I was a teenager I loved horror and thrillers. This feels like the kind of books I read back then. The story is about some point in the future when the Olympics includes a competition where countries bio-engineer animal competitors and the creatures fight to the death. The U.S. uses some unorthodox method to create their latest competitor and things go very wrong. Lots of gore and people running screaming for their lives. It’s not literature but super fun read.
