 +===== 2021 =====
 +==== March ====
 +  * [[wp>​Ancillary Justice|Ancillary Justice]] by [[wp>Ann Leckie]] - Munro loaned this to me, said I'd enjoy it.  The synopsis looks interesting. ​ Finished: This was not bad.  I thought I'd be more captivated by the two characters who had multiple bodies, but the idea wasn't focused on as much as I'd have liked. ​ Nothing else stood out really. ​ Meh, it was okay but not sure I'll bother reading the other two in the trilogy.
 +==== February ====
 +  * [[wp>The Expert System'​s Brother]] by [[wp>​Adrian Tchaikovsky]] - This was interesting.
 +  * [[wp>The Expert System'​s Champion]] by [[wp>​Adrian Tchaikovsky]] - I was happy to read more of the original story, but didn't enjoy this one as much, story kinda petered out.

 +==== August ====
 +  * [[wp>​Transcendent_(novel)|Transcendent]] by [[wp>​Stephen Baxter]] - Third in the trilogy, enjoying this one slighty more so far than the second. ​ Finished: Ugh, this was okay, I wish I hadn't bothered with the whole trilogy. ​ He didn't really explore the FTL casuality ideas that I was interested in, and the whole thing was pretty uninteresting. ​ Shame, I had high hopes. ​ It took me a long time to get through.
 ==== June ==== ==== June ====
   * [[wp>​Exultant (novel)|Exultant]] by [[wp>​Stephen Baxter]] - I'm finding this pretty difficult to read, quite slow.  I'm a big fan of some of Baxter'​s other work, so will slog through and finish this trilogy in the hopes that it pays off.   * [[wp>​Exultant (novel)|Exultant]] by [[wp>​Stephen Baxter]] - I'm finding this pretty difficult to read, quite slow.  I'm a big fan of some of Baxter'​s other work, so will slog through and finish this trilogy in the hopes that it pays off.
