I like stuff with romantic elements and angst, usually YA, fantasy, paranormal/urban fantasy or variations thereof. Usually wrinkles nose at sci-fi due to unlikely tech. Straight girl who likes boys that like boys!

The Martian - Andy Weir

I read the the bookpushers review of The Martian and became curious enough to try the sample, even if it is sci-fi. I don't do sci-fi cause the tech (in the few books I have tried), alwasy strikes me as so far-fetched. 

 

So the sample pulled me in, and here I am, reading about a dude stranded on Mars. With (from what I remember from school), fairly likely tech. Convenient that he is the fixit-guy (technical engineer) and botanist and not the, say.... geologist & chemist, but I can deal with that.
