Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Sky Weaver! The concluding book in the Iskari trilogy is the best one so far, and I'm super excited to share a review below! If you're interested in seeing my thoughts on the other books in the series, you can check out my review of The Last Namsara and The Caged Queen.
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.
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.
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 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.
