Goodreads Monday written in red script, surrounded by blue and green ferns

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start! I’m slowly returning to the blogging mode, since I’ve been away from posting for a while. I hope this is the return of something consistent for me!

Goodreads Monday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. You highlight a book from your Goodreads TBR that you can’t wait to read! Since not many people love Goodreads, this may count toward your personal TBR pile!

This Week’s ‘Goodreads Monday’ Choice

Machinehood by S.B. Divya

Machinehood is on my radar for intense reading! It has both SFF elements and a intense plot. I’m excited to begin this book!

Synopsis

Welga Ramirez, executive bodyguard and ex-special forces, is about to retire early, but her client dies in front of her. It’s 2095 and people don’t usually die from violence. Humanity is entirely dependent on pills that not only help them stay alive, but allow them to compete with artificial intelligence in an increasingly competitive gig economy. Daily doses protect against designer diseases, flow enhances focus, zips and buffs enhance physical strength and speed, and juvers speed the healing process.

However, Welga’s client is killed by The Machinehood, a new and mysterious terrorist group that has simultaneously attacked several major pill funders. The Machinehood operatives are part human, part machine, something the world has never seen. They issue an ultimatum: stop all pill production in one week.

Global panic ensues as pill production slows and many become ill. Thousands destroy their bots in fear of a strong AI takeover. But the US government believes the Machinehood is a cover for an old enemy. One that Welga is uniquely qualified to fight.

Welga, determined to take down the Machinehood, is pulled back into intelligence work by the government that betrayed her. But who are the Machinehood and what do they really want?

What is on your TBR pile? Which books are you excited to read?
