By now you all know how much I absolutely love Emma Newman’s Planetfall books, so there’s no surprise that I was eagerly awaiting, and ultimately ended up loving, this book. The first sequel in the Planetfall series, Atlas Alone picks up six months after the events of After Atlas and deals with the consequences of those events in deep, thought-provoking, and totally horrifying way that only Emma Newman can achieve.
Happy Friday all! This is an especially happy Friday because my birthday is tomorrow! I'm really looking forward to spending time with some of my favourite people* while celebrating my 31st year. How fun!
Some of you may know that Children of Time is one of my absolute favourite novels. I love the incredible scope, storytelling, and world that Tchaikovsky captures on the page. Children of Ruin is a fantastic sequel that expands on everything that made the first book great, all while serving a compelling and gorgeous story.
I'm pretty sure I've fallen into some sort of time slip. While April seemed to drag on and on, the month of May flew by in a flash. Despite being busy (as usual) and reading some longer books this month, I still managed to read ten books (and DNFed two), and I'm so proud. The slump is officially over! Hooray!
I absolutely love Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Children of Time and was curious to see what his other science fiction books were like. Walking to Aldebaran is the perfect way to sample his writing style -- clocking in at right around 140 pages, it’s a short but effective story of an astronaut lost in space.
Excuse me, I seem to have lost the entire month of May. Seriously, where did May go? I feel like April lasted forever and now the universe is trying to correct itself by moving at warp speed through May. Just me? Maybe? Okay. I've been reading quite a lot lately, but it doesn't necessarily reflect in my progress because I've been a little firmer about DNFing books! Take a look at my week is reading below.
Happy Friday, everyone! It feels like this week has gone on forever, but the weekend is nearly here. I've had a good reading week, despite some disappointments. Let's get to it!
