This is not my usual type of read… sci-fi books have never interested me. Butttt I kept seeing it on “good reads” lists and…. (I hate to admit this) Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars Instagrammed a picture of it… so I took the plunge, downloaded The Martian by Andy Weir, and gave it a try!
A man named Mark Watney gets left on Mars (don’t worry, I’m not giving anything away) and the entire book is basically a monologue of his thoughts, feelings, and sarcastic comments about the whole debacle. Within the first 5 minutes I was actually laughing out loud, embarrassingly enough.
