This is still for me, hands down, one of the best sci-fi trilogies ever! I'm always recommending it to people because of how wholesome and fun it is! 💕📚💕

Hated it. First book I have failed to finish for YEARS! I get what she is trying to do - establish new characters and the setting which will lead the way to further novels. Got about 33% through and was just soooo bored. Unless you are a die-hard Science Fiction fan with too much time on their hands- I really wouldn't bother.

Still isolating, so let‘s talk about what comforts you! 💕

1. Love this book, very cozy sci fi, slice of life with low stakes, and found family. 🚀
2. Right now, it‘s curled up in the corner of the couch, under a blanket, with the cat on my lap.
3. Apple cinnamon tea with a little bit of honey. Very good for my throat! 🫖

2thumbs way up for this fun intergalactic adventure! I do not know why I waited so long to read this it is great!
Chambers does an excellent job introducing the characters and weaving in back stories, while keeping the pace going and woooo that last 100 pages is a ride it has been a long time since I read a book I really did not want to put down and this one was that. Her characters both physically and culturally we're creative but not too much.

ChaoticMissAdventures I hate when people compare one media to another but I do see the comparison to Serenity/Firefly with the quirky manic pixie mechanic and the stalwart caption mixed in with other strong characters on a ship flying through space. I am not mad about it! It isn't exactly the same and it was good to keep expectations reasonable. 3mo

This is the first book of the Wayfarers series and I‘m hooked. The unbelievable creativity behind the world building and the wide variety of creatures within was mind boggling. I enjoyed all of it. My favorite part was how this group of misfits brought together by chance had become a tight family. They annoyed each other, they stood up for each other, they were there when it counted. I‘m ready for my next space adventure with the Wayfarer crew.

I am not a hardcore Sci-Fi fan but I did enjoy this book. I didn‘t love it, but I certainly liked it enough to give it 3 stars. I would recommend to the right person.

Fleeing her old life, Rosemary Harper joins the multi-species crew of the Wayfarer as a file clerk, and follows them on their various missions throughout the galaxy.

This was an absolute delight, and I don‘t say that often about Sci-fi. A lovely cast of characters go on adventures in space. Very similar found family vibes to TJ Klune‘s books. I have added the rest of the series to my tbr! 5⭐️

This was so freaking good. Excellent character composition with so much wonderful, masterfully handled. So many great character interactions. It wasn't sappy, but dang it hit the feels. The plot was magnificent & just flowed. It tackled so many BIG social topics in a natural & noninflammatory way. Just amazing. This is one of those books that feels like it just opened a whole new realm of reading possibilities. Do yourself a favor. Read it.

shanaqui The whole series is like this, in slightly different ways in each book! You have a treat ahead. :D 4mo

This was such a boring slog of a read. There was no dramatic tension, there was no tension full stop. Things were introduced then immediately resolved.

Too much nothingness

Managed to finish off my #Roll100 for March.

I really loved this one. The characters were so varied and interesting. Their relationships complicated and sweet. While not much happens from an action perspective, you see the characters grow on their long haul trip. I will definitely be looking at reading the others :)

This was such a delight to read! Space shenanigans reminiscent of Firefly, and characters that are easy to love. The discussions about different cultures, politics, and space science were all well written, entertaining, and mature without being preachy/predictable.

This book is much more focused on characters than anything else. Cause after 400+ pages, not much happened, but I adored every moment spent on the Wayfarer with the heart warming crew!

I‘m currently reading the tagged book which wasn‘t on @Karisa‘s list, but I‘m really enjoying it so have no doubt I will make it to the 4th in the series, which is the one on her list, sometime soon this year! Migrations will be the first off the list I‘ll start next.

Had an amazing day out with @Emilymdxn 🥰

I had a chance to finish The Long Way on the train back home. I found the first 200 pages a bit slow going but finished the second half much more quickly. Pretty good book but I‘m not sure if I will finish the series.

Emily also gave me The Love Hypothesis ❤️ and I‘m debating whether to read that or Red, White & Royal Blue next.

The more science fiction I read, the more I find myself enjoying the genre. My main problem with space-centric science fiction, though, is that I have a hard time picturing what the different creatures/species are supposed to look like, so I end up imagining them all as Zoidberg from Futurama.

My father passed away on Friday after a year-and-a-half struggle with pancreatic cancer. This book was a very good choice to retreat to over this difficult and painful week. The characters are delightful and with the focus on character, I didn‘t get too worried about what the bad guys might be going. I‘m glad I had done some grieving and was less emotionally fragile by the time I got to the finale, though!

A great piece of escapist fiction when you're feeling delicate. An Iyashikei- Arcadia genre story with low stakes and deep friendships set to the grand theater of space.

Hey, look! I finally completed my July #bookspinbingo board! And also one book (tagged), lol. Off to a late start this month, thanks to what was actually a really fun family road trip vacation 🚙🏕⛰. I had some audiobooks picked out for the car, but we could only ever agree on music 🤷🏻‍♀️

I may be the last person to pick up Chambers' heart-warming space opera, but if not, and you are a fan of Firefly, warm-fuzzies and found-family, go for it!

I loved this so much, first off.
Obviously queer found family gets me, and I was pretty much in love with the Wayfarer crew instantly. Maybe introduced a little too likeable somehow, but honestly on finishing it I don't even care. They each got rounded out through the book, and now I'm super curious about how the rest of the series progresses.

Okay this is my new favorite series! I fell in love with these characters and the whole universe. It's a sci-fi space adventure following the tunneling ship, the Wayfarer. They are a ragtag crew of many species just trying to get along and do their job. But they all have different cultures and prejudices and maybe some secrets. I didn't want this one to end. Looking forward to reading the next one!
