Once again, Becky Chambers strikes gold with her wonderful and insightful science fiction novella, Psalm for the Wild-Built. The start of a new series, this book presents the reader with a philosophical and thoughtful tale of friendship and finding your purpose.
Why are reviews for books you absolutely loved the most difficult to write? You all probably know by now that Becky Chambers is one of my absolute favourite authors of all time. I adore her cosy science fiction writing and a new book from her is always a big event in my reading life. I went into The Galaxy and the Ground Within knowing exactly how much I'd love it, and all my expectations were met.
Happy Friday, all! I can't believe how quickly August is progressing. This week's wrap-up will cover a few more days than usual because I'm currently participating in the N.E.W.T.s readathon! I want to make sure I'm covering all of my subjects and keeping myself accountable.
You all know how passionately I love Becky Chambers’ books -- she’s one of my favourite authors and consistently puts out incredible stories. When her next release was announced, I was initially a little disappointed that To Be Taught, If Fortunate wasn’t going to be a continuation of her Wayfarers books. However I completely trust Becky to give me the gorgeous, quiet stories I crave. My faith in Becky Chambers remains -- To Be Taught, If Fortunate is the beautiful, gentle tale of human exploration that I never knew I needed.
Becky Chambers is one of my absolute favourite authors and I adore her books. Record of a Spaceborn Few was one of my most highly anticipated books of the year, and I must say that it did not disappoint.
Another week has come and gone. How is it already August 10th? I honestly thought it was the 3rd this morning -- times flies! This was an amazing week for reading with two five-star books! Let's dive in, shall we?
It has been awhile since I did a weekly wrap up! The month of July was absolutely crazy and I relied scheduling posts weeks in advance -- I didn't have time to whip up these posts! Now life is back to normal, but still busy.
I've been thinking about doing this for awhile. Science fiction is such an incredibly rich genre, but it's hard to figure out where to start! Whether you've been a fan of sci-fi TV and movies or just curious to dip a toe into a new genre, I promise that there's something out there for you!
I don’t often participate in memes, but I thought this was one was a great idea! It’s a mid-year look at the best books I’ve read in 2017. Some of them are new, some are older, but they’re all fantastic reads! You can see my full reviews by clicking the links.
Well, here are two of my interests combined! I’m not a huge Disney person in general, but I grew up on the princesses (I’m pretty sure I wore out my VHS copy of The Little Mermaid). Thank you so much to Nadwa from Painfully Fictional for tagging me!
