Like January, here’s the books I read in February and what I thought about them.
Prompt: By the year 2100 Earth’s ecosystem is dying due to a lack of trees. In an effort to combat this, the world’s scientists develop and plant millions of genetically engineered trees. The current year is 2118 and you just witnessed a sapling strangle your childhood pet.
Prompt: “No, I said we were safer, not safe.”
Prompt: With a large birthmark and an old antiquated family name, her bullies were vicious. Her mom was getting more depressed, her dad more violent. That’s when, in line with the rest of her tragedy, a grotesque monster came out from under her bed. To her surprise, however, it had come to help.
Prompt: The moon shines brightly in the sky, illuminating the shore around you. The scent of the sea and sand, along with the rush of the waves and the taste of salt fill your senses to the brim. Moving your body, you take your first step forwards.
With the new year, I will be posting a monthly “Books Read” on the first day of the following month (ex. January’s will be posted on February 1st). I’ll give my brief thoughts on the book, and if I really enjoyed it, it’ll likely be given a Book Spotlight post soon thereafter.
Prompt: You’re a lawyer-wizard who gives objects temporary sentience so they can defend themselves from asset forfeiture.
