A future where space travel to habitable planets is possible with new species to discover! It sounds fun and exciting but it was really just okay. I‘m not fond of the ending, which usually wouldn‘t bother me but really didn‘t work with this book. The main characters thoughts were interesting and did remind me of Long Way‘s main character but I needed more dialogue. I ended up wishing I‘d spent my night on something that I felt had a point to it.

A spontaneous airport buy, but it's Becky Chambers writing a space story, so how bad can it be, right? 😀

This wasn't even on my radar. I was just browsing on overdrive and found this. Yes, please. 😀

August has been a fantastic reading month for me. With the #HSreadathon running all month, then the #24in48 plus #SummersEndReadathon & #24B4Monday it‘s been a bounty of reading! All up I‘ve completed 27(there‘s an audiobook of A Discovery Of Witches I forgot to add)& 1 started book(Darkdawn). Choosing a fave is tough, it‘s a tossup between The Dakota Winters, If We Were Villians, To Be Taught If Fortunate & The Woman In Black. #AugustWrapUp

It‘s midnight here in Sydney so officially Monday. This is my final tally for the #24B4Monday #readathon which of course will be continuing for both the #HSreadathon & #SummersEndReadathon until Friday for the latter & Sunday for the former. I managed 4.7 books(still have 1 & a bit stories left in TWIB) and almost 25 & 1/2 hours! My favourite was definitely the tagged book, Becky Chambers is a master storyteller.🚀💫

This book was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read! The only complaint I have is it‘s a novella & not long enough! In the 22nd century, 4 astronaut scientists leave Earth on a mission to search four planetoids for life. Science has developed a patch that makes their skin use radiation as food, for the 1st low light planet their skin glitters, The 2nd high gravity, their muscles bulk up etc. Then Earth goes silent. #HSreadathon #SummersEndReadathon #24B4Monday

Clwojick Stacked! 4w

After passing out at 8am this morning, I‘m back in the #readathon wheelhouse, finishing off this novella from Becky Chambers. Pairing it with some Connoisseur Australian Native Collection Icecream(Davidson Plum, Cocoa & Caramelised Pear. Yum) How‘s everyone else traveling so far? #HSreadathon #24B4Monday #SummersEndReadathon

Grabbed a quick #snackbreak to make a cup of tea & butter a fingerbun before diving into the new novella from the author of the Wayfarers series. It sounds so original, in the 22nd Century, scientists can now use a method called somaforming to change astronauts bodies to survive conditions in space that previously would have killed them. Intriguing. #HSreadathon #SummersEndReadathon #24B4Monday

Andrew65 Sounds very interesting! 😊 4w

Lizpixie @Andrew65 it is so far👍 @Clwojick it was very yummy, how was yours? I‘m so happy to have inspired a snack break! @4thhouseontheleft my tooth is still not fixed so I need a straw, especially for hot drinks. I have gotten a blister on my lip from it but I can‘t find plastic bendy straws anywhere anymore unfortunately & wax paper ones turn to mush in hot drinks🤷🏻‍♀️ 4w
Andrew65 @Lizpixie Oh no, hope you can get the tooth fixed ASAP. Nothing worse than tooth pain. 4w

Becky Chambers knocks it out of the park again. This is up with Long Way for my fave of hers - I don‘t want to give away plot but it‘s cinematic, philosophical, intimate. A perfect slender book that packs so much imagination, character and so many big questions into a tiny space, and ends on a huge question - I really hope we get an answer one day. Casual representation of trans and asexual ppl in the midst of glorious sci fi an added bonus.

saresmoore I didn‘t know this existed! I really adore her books for filling a very specific void in my reading life I didn‘t know I had until I read them. 1mo
Ruthiella Yay!😃 Looking forward to this one! 1mo
