A Half-Built Garden | Ruthanna Emrys

This book has a lot about first contact politics, near-future ways to cope with climatic change, and mothers changing the world for the better while carrying their babies around in slings and changing diapers too. The aliens are also extremely well fleshed out. It was original and different. I like when the first contact situation with its politics and conflicts is so well fleshed out.

It's so lovely!!! I need more books like this!

This has good reviews but the plot develops too slowly and it became so boring I set it aside. I will not continue the series.

The narration of this very entertaining space opera audiobook was perfect, the characters and situations very funny and the plot full of action. I read this for #Bookspin #January @TheAromaofBooks
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Celestine I've been looking for more Sci-Fi! How would you rate this out of 10? 13mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 13mo
TheAromaofBooks @Celestine - My favorite scifi this year was Project Hail Mary. If you enjoy YA, I also really enjoyed the Aurora Cycle (starts with Aurora Rising) and the Sentinels of the Galaxy series (starts with Navigating the Stars). 13mo
Celestine @TheAromaofBooks Thank you so much! Project Hail Mary is already on my to-read list I'll have to get to it soon. 13mo
