50/50 Friday - Favorite/Least Favorite Sci-Fi of 2019

What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. I'll have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let me know!

Topic for the Week
Favorite/Least Favorite Sci-Fi of 2019
Rules are the same as last week. You can choose a book that was released in 2019 or just one that was new to you in 2019. Your choice! No wrong answers! Let's get down to it! 


I read only one Science Fiction book in all of 2019. So it's going to be the best and the worst. Though I did like this book! 


You heard nothing happened on December 21, 2012, right?

Not exactly.

Here's where the cosmic shift began:

As election year 2008 unfolds, Tess Vaughn’s deepest desire is to give up romance and live a quiet life in rural Arizona. But when the former investigative journalist jogs into the arms of married presidential candidate Senator Harris Cantrell Henry, she finds trouble galore.

Not only does Henry tell her things she doesn’t want to hear about abuses of the National Investigative Homeland Security Agency (NIHSA) and his political nemesis, Senator C. Clelland Collins, he babbles gibberish about doubles, ETs, and UFOs.

Tess finds herself pregnant when she ends the trysts. Her daughter Mikka’s paternity and precocious talents are secrets she knows she must keep. But her secrets aren’t safe when Senator Harris Henry becomes the 44th President of the United States.

On 11.11.2011, the hyped pre-2012 window of positive opportunity, President Henry announces his intention to engage the United States in the international fight against global warming. But his deepest desire to provide full disclosure of his contact with extraterrestrials remains an uneasy secret. When President Henry disappears, Tess’s fears for Mikka’s safety mount.

Tess enlists the assistance of two upbeat New Age ministers, Marshall and Savannah Updike. Their greatest desire is to witness the triumph of good over evil in 2012. The couple challenges Tess’s common sense with their discovery of a Bible Code prophecy about an enigmatic “Starchild” whose fate is linked with President Henry. And the Updikes insist that meeting another handsome hunk is Tess’s best hope for Mikka’s survival.

Carson Hodges’ one-pointed desire is to live in the moment and reach enlightenment. The Native American healer charms Tess with his lack of guile and manages to steer her one step ahead of trouble. That is, until Tess’s brother Paul Vaughn – whose only desire is to be loved – talks too much to the wrong people.

Will the Starchild fulfill her karmic desire as the clock races toward December 2012?
