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.

Book Review: To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers

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.

Book Review: Atlas Alone by Emma Newman

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.

Weekly Reading Wrap-Up: 24 May 2019

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.

Book Review: Before Mars by Emma Newman

I make no secret of the fact that Emma Newman is one of my favourite authors. I absolutely loved the first two books in her Planetfall series, Planetfall and After Atlas, so I had faith in the fact that I’d also love Before Mars. Each Planetfall book is a little different, and Before Mars is no exception with its gripping psychological thriller plot. I ended up absolutely adoring this book and falling back in love with the sci-fi genre, which I have been neglecting for a long time.
