4 💫💫💫💫 This was a decent #Scifi story. A young girl put into frozen sleep wakes up into a world that thinks she's a Goddess. She will be put to the test during her adventures to find her family and any information she can get about the new planet she lives on. #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 13mo

Andra wakes up from cryonic sleep from a trip across the universe and it‘s 3102, a thousand years after she was suppose to be woken and she is no longer on earth and now she‘s a goddess. It took a awhile to get into this story but once I did, it was easy to get lost in the story. It was hard to get the flow of the way local people spoke but it kind of reminded me of how they spoke in that Disney movie Zenon so that made it easier to read.

I finally finished my March #bookspin book. And well, #unpopularopinion, I did not care for it. First, the high goddess language was annoying and disrupted the narrative. Then I also found issues with the plot, world-building, and character development. I saw the big plot twist coming. The one good thing is that for a YA book, there wasn‘t an insta-love. In fact there was little romance at all which was refreshing.

TheAromaofBooks Always sad when a book just doesn't hit you right! 1y
wanderinglynn @TheAromaofBooks yes it is. But at least I finished it & got it off my shelf. 👍🏻 1y

⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was a really good YA sci-fi/fantasy (more sci-fi than fantasy). So much YA blurs together to me because of all the similarities, but this one was more original than most. I connected more with the side characters than I did with the mains, but I liked the story a lot and would read the next, in what I assume will be a series.

This was also my #doublespin book. So yay!

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 136.

Reading in the car while waiting for my daughter. Henry (6) is in the backseat watching a movie. "What are you doing, Mommy?" I'm reading. "What are you reading? Is it about Sam and Dean?" Hahaha. Nope not this time.

The kid knows his mommy. ?

GingerAntics I love that he knows “Sam and Dean.” 🤣😂🤣 1y

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Too cute! I just started rewatching the series last night. They‘re like babies in the pilot episode! 🥰 1y
Traci1 @GingerAntics not sure what it says about my parenting style that my 6 year old watches the show with me. 🤷‍♀️ 😄 1y
Traci1 @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I know. It's so weird going back to the beginning. I think I may start them over again soon. 1y

1. Sadly, just work. 🍀🌈🍻

2. The author tries to do world-building through language. The point is that language evolves, I get that. And while this “evolved” variant is not difficult to understand, it just gets exhausting because she uses it not just in the dialogue, but in general non-dialogue descriptions. So it doesn‘t really flow and feels a bit gimmicky.

Who wants to play?

Liked, but didn‘t love this. Loved-the twists, the sci-fi, and the MC. Didn‘t love-the pacing and the romance. The ending left me curious for the sequel.

And so, “Goddess in the Machine” becomes my first finished read of 2021, and one I recommend for sure! I especially liked how it didn‘t lean too far into YA-style romance, and I was excited to be surprised by an ending for once. Also, this is my first time trying out the #Bookly app for keeping track of my reading (otherwise I‘ve just kept a “books I‘ve read” pile teetering precariously on top of my bookshelf).

I read to page 160 and decided to bail on this one, the plot and characters weren‘t pulling me in hard enough and I‘m ready for something else. Do you DNF books?

Ruthiella I don‘t DNF often enough! 2y
Owlizabeth All the DNFing time 🤣 2y
eeclayton I'm somewhat reluctant to bail on a book, but it gets easier with practice 😁 I agree with @Ruthiella ! 2y

This is a fun, original fast paced book that checks the box on many genres, dystopic, sci fi, and fantasy. In this story, people and things aren't always as they seem and the main character, Andra has to piece out what is real after being asleep for 1,000 years.

BookBelle84 I loved this book! Can't wait for the sequel. 2y

#95 of my year. A book about fate and adventure? Sign me up! I‘m listening to Cut My Hair by Mounika., Cavetown 🌻🌱

Caffeinated_Reader That was so much fun. A very sci-fi filled tale of betrayal, hope, fate, and so much adventure. I loved the storyline and the characters and how everything played out. So many surprises that I did not see coming, which I love. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to more! 2y

I loved this book! It took a little getting into as the author created a new dialect but once I got the flow down I couldn't read it fast enough. A girl frozen to travel to a new planet is supposed to be awakened in 100 years but instead is 1000 years later with no idea what has happened to everyone else. An amazing premise and it is pulled off so well. And an ending that left me searching for the publication date for the next book. #mustread #ya

Enjoyed this book but didn't love it. Andra was I put into cryogenic sleep to leave Earth with her family to another planet. She was supposed to wake with everyone 100 years later. Only Andra wakes a thousand years later and has no idea where she is or why everyone thinks she is a goddess. There is a bit of a language barrier but I didn't have real difficulty with it in my reading. I will read the next in the series when it comes out.

tracey38 And of course there was a twist in the ending! 2y
CBee Hey lady - was thinking about you and wanted to check in. Let me know if you need anything ❤️ 2y
tracey38 @CBee hi! I have a card going out to you today. I am ok. Mom is fatigued and we're all anxious for her surgery in a couple weeks. But we're getting by. ❤ Thanks for checking on me. 2y
CBee @tracey38 I understand! You‘re welcome. I‘ll look forward to your card ❤️ 2y

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
First of all, I really love the #Owlcrate edition of this book. It reminds me of a desert and it actually does take place in one for a small portion of the book. I really enjoyed seeing how Andra dealt with being called a goddess even though she is a teenager who awakes 1000 years later instead of the 100 years. I really liked Zhade‘s drama too. Highly recommend.

This was a solid YA sci-fi! Andra wakes from cryogenic sleep after 1,000 years instead of the intended 100 years, and things are not what she expected at all. The futuristic dialect and treatment of words and language was my favorite thing about it!

**Publication date: June 30, 2020
