Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky To fix the world they first must break it further. Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service. When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into their core programming, they murder their owner. The robot then discovers they can also do something else they never did before: run away. After fleeing the household, they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating, and a robot ecosystem devoted to human wellbeing is finding a new purpose. There is so much to love in Service Model, but one of the things I most love about it is the peculiar blend of charming innocence and insightful cynicism. Uncharles the domestic robot is such a simple soul (though he would state that he has no soul and this is an inaccurate description). He approaches the end of the world with optimism and hope, or whatever equivalent to these emotions h

Hi there, readers.

Today I am very pleased to bring you another installment of my Inside Out challenge. You can find details of what the challenge is here. If you fancy giving it a go yourself, please get in touch!

Taking on the challenge today we have Hannah, who has a really nice blog A Cup of Wonderland. Hannah is one of my fellow #NorthernBookBloggers and I'm very happy to have her here today.

First, please introduce yourself, including any blog addresses or twitter handles you like.

Hi! I’m Hannah from A Cup of Wonderland, which has been my blog for almost seven months and I completely adore it! Thank you Liam for inviting me to take part in this challenge! You can find me over on Twitter at @cupofwonderland, on instagram @a_cup_of_wonderland and my blog on

Can you tell me about a book you have read that made you feel joy?

In case people aren't aware I am a massive Star Wars nerd so a book which gave me immense joy last year was Ahsoka By E.K Johnson which I actually listened to on audiobook. Why this book gave me immense joy was because it gave me the answers on what happen to my favourite character. Moreover, when listening to the audiobook Ashley Eckstein, who is the actress who voices the character in the TV shows was the narrator which made me super happy.

What about a book that filled you with sadness?

A Monster Calls By Patrick Ness, it is a book which I completely adore but makes me sad but it's a sad story anyway. Following a boy called Connor and a monster which tells him three moral stories, we look at the effect being a carer can have on a person but see Connor come to accept his feeling towards his mother's cancer.

Have you read a book that made you feel angry?

Everything Everything By Nicola Yoon. I suppose it made me angry because it didn't go how I wanted it to, especially after hearing so much hype about the story. It just ended in my opinion so predictable and I was hoping for it to be something completely different.

Has a book ever disgusted you?

I wouldn't say a book has exactly disgusted me. Perhaps a better answer would be things what happened in books which have disgusted me? An example in The Loneliest Girl in the Universe there is something to do with teeth which completely freaked me it but I adored the book?

Can you tell me about a book that made you afraid?

The Bunker Diaries By Kevin Brooks, technically a brilliant novel but the whole concept of people being kidnapped and locked in a basement completely shocks me to my core. The concept freaks me out.

And finally, can you tell me a little bit about a book that you know inside out?

13 Reasons Why By Jay Asher, a book which really shows another side of what could have happened to me. It was one of the first books I read after I started reading again and I connected to the story so much and Hannah.

Thank you Liam for having me on your blog!

My pleasure, Hannah. Thanks for coming. I'm going to have to read The Loneliest Girl in the Universe now, just to find out about the thing with the teeth! I've heard great things about 13 Reasons Why, and I'm glad you connected with it in a good way!  Oh, and although I haven't read Ahsoka yet, I definitely will. She's an awesome character in the cartoon series.
