Hello, people of the internet!
My personal reading challenges have been very successful, so why not continue? I won’t be reading as many books this month because I want to write more discussion posts – they are a lot of fun to write!
Anyway, enough about me and my aim to discuss (or rant) more about books, here are the two books I aim to read this month!
The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
When Rosemary Harper joins the crew of the Wayfarer, she isn’t expecting much. The Wayfarer, a patched-up ship that’s seen better days, offers her everything she could possibly want: a small, quiet spot to call home for a while, adventure in far-off corners of the galaxy, and distance from her troubled past.
But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptilian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life on board is chaotic, but more or less peaceful – exactly what Rosemary wants.
Until the crew are offered the job of a lifetime: the chance to build a hyperspace tunnel to a distant planet. They’ll earn enough money to live comfortably for years…if they survive the long trip through war-torn interstellar space without endangering any of the fragile alliances that keep the galaxy peaceful.
But Rosemary isn’t the only person on board with secrets to hide, and the crew will soon discover that space may be vast, but spaceships are very small indeed.
I have been wanting to read a fictional book with space in it for a very long time! That and just look at the cover! I think it’s gorgeous and subtle at the same time. I haven’t read anything like this before, so I haven’t got a clue what could happen in this story.
Oh, I just can’t wait to read it!
Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins
Lazy, hazy days are for falling in love…
There’s nothing quite like a sun-drenched romance to brighten up your summer holiday. Whether you’re by the pool or having a staycation, this collection of twelve gorgeous stories will transport you to the best holiday you’ve ever had.
So grab an ice cream, stretch out on that sunlounger and indulge in some summer romance.
For those of you who don’t know, I read My True Love Gave To Me, which was also a collection of wintery, romance short stories written by several authors and edited by Stephanie Perkins, back in December last year (you can read my review of it right here. I absolutely loved it! So when I saw this collection of summery, romance short stories written by several authors and edited by Stephanie Perkins, I knew I had to get it.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
Thank you for reading!
