Becky Chambers takes #spaceoddity and gives it heart and dimension. The universe is vast, but her stories are really about the little moments. Lots of warm conversation and self-reflection, and she always makes me tear up at least once. I just love her. I'll plug her books every chance I get. 🖤

GypsyKat I have the first two on my Kindle TBR! 6d
readordierachel @GypsyKat I hope you like them when you get to them! (I loved the second even more than the first) 6d

Tanisha_A I love this collage. 😍 6d
Katerina I love these books too 😍 I was a bit disappointed at first that the second was not a direct continuation of the first, but then it didn't matter at all. She has created a great universe and I hope we'll get to see much more of it. 6d
rohit-sawant This sounds wonderful! 6d
GypsyKat @readordierachel I have them already, I just haven‘t read them yet. I feel sure that I‘ll love them! 6d
readordierachel @Cinfhen It took me a little bit to get into the first book, but once I was into it, I was INTO it. But we all have different tastes, and that's what makes reading fun! 2d
readordierachel @Katerina Same on all counts! I ended up loving the second one even more than the first. Can't wait to see where she goes next! 2d
readordierachel @rohit-sawant She's a really talented author! Space opera that manages to be grand and intimate at the same time. 2d

#MayMovieMagic #SpaceOddity

All the creatures who live in a Galaxy far far away are a bit of an oddity, at least to our current scientific exploration!

Ravenclawsbookshelf I love how fun these look! 6d
CrowCAH @Ravenclawsbookshelf they‘re great, short and sweet! And perfect to read out loud to a child with sound effects! 6d

I read this last year. I really didn‘t fancy it but it fitted prompts in 2 different challenges; I ended up really enjoying it!

Cinfhen I thought this was a pretty crafty read 🚀 7d
rohit-sawant Nice one! 6d

A few #spaceoddity graphic novels I pulled off the kids' shelf. I haven't read either. ?
I tend to prefer "quiet novels about ordinary life" and few of them seem to take place in space. ?

“I‘m the Turtle, son. I made the universe, but please don‘t blame me for it; I had a belly-ache.”

So pumped for IT: chapter 2 and can't wait to see how the filmmakers portray a #SpaceOddity (Featured in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) Bill encounters in the form of Maturin, a cosmic turtle. I'm really hoping it'll be somewhat like Nolan's Interstellar on crack.

Heideschrampf Hahahaha i might have to start watching after all 1w

#MayMovieMagic #SpaceOddity I do have this book at home .. but I‘m not that inclined to pick it up 🤷🏻‍♀️

TrishB Not a fav for me. 1w
batsy I'm not sure why, but I don't much feel like reading this one either (or any of her previous books 🤷🏽‍♀️) 1w
Cinfhen It wasn‘t worthy of any of the hype, IMHO #JustSayin 1w
