Being part of the Galactic Commons is bringing changes to the Exodan Fleet, and change can be a scary thing. Sometimes you need a bit of perspective to know what’s good for you…
In the Exodan Fleet, everyone is guaranteed a home and food on their table, and everyone works to make a contribution to the Fleet in return. But life isn’t without difficulties. This week focuses on the challenges faced by those who make the Fleet their home…
From the ground, we stand; From our ships, we live; By the stars, we hope
Welcome to the Exodan Fleet.
Signal boost for a read-along close to my heart! My regular partners in crime Lisa of Dear Geek Space and Jorie of Jorie Loves a Story are continuing their guided read of the Wayfarer books! Not read A Closed and Common Orbit yet? Have read it, but would love to chat through it (or reread it; you know you want to)? They’ve got you… Read at your own pace from Christmas, weekly discussions start mid-January.
The heart-rending follow-up to last year’s break-out debut, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, I liked A Closed and Common Orbit so much I read it twice in two months. Honestly, do I need to say more?
It’s the final week of the @SFFreadalong of A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers, so ‘ware major spoilers for the finale! This week we’re hosted by Mogsy from The Bibliosanctum as we reach a new crisis point that will test Sidra and Pepper’s loyalties and their commitment. Will it be a happy ending?
Welcome to the second week of the @SFFReadalong of A Closed and Common Orbit. This week, we find Sidra struggling to adapt to her new existence as she searches for a way to come to terms with the kit. In the past, Jane must face her fears if she is to survive in the shuttle.
It’s time to dive back into deep space with the read-along for A Closed and Common Orbit, the much-anticipated sequel to last year’s break-out debut The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet. This week we’re hosted by Lisa from Over the Effing Rainbow – we’ll be reading through December so if you’re interested in participating, hop on over to the SF/F Read-Along group to join the discussion.
It feels like I’ve been writing about The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet all month, but it’s time to round up with an actual review of Becky Chambers excellent debut.
Rosemary Harper has faked a new identity and signed on with the Wayfarer as a clerk. Captain Ashby hopes she’ll open doors to juicier contracts. Everyone else just hopes she’s less of a pain in the ass than their fuel engineer.
It’s the last week of the SciFi Month Read-Along of A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, which means spoilers a-go-go and all the feelings as we reach the climax. My heartfelt thanks to Over the Effin’ Rainbow for organising the Read-Along and hosting this last week – I’d been wanting to read this novel, and I’ve enjoyed every minute.
Marking my first post on WordPress rather than LJ (turns out moving platform is like moving house; terrifying and exhilarating and oddly requiring far more tea and boxes than you expected), it’s the third week of the #RRSciFiMonth read-along of A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet (previous weeks here and here) organised by Over the Effin’ Rainbow.
I’ve fallen behind due to Life and Other Animals, so it’s a belated round 3 today in brief advance of the final week of the read-along plus a review tomorrow.
Our host for week 3 is Claire Rousseau who has set some excellent questions (it goes without saying that this far through the book there will be spoilers, yes/yes?)
For those just dropping by out of the blue: this is the second (weekly) installment in a group delight in A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, being organised by Over the Effin Rainbow as part of RRSciFiMonth (Ronseal: an opportunity to delight in all things SFF for a month – check out Twitter for a run down of all the stuff going on). It’s not too late to join in – we’ll be reading a quarter of the book a week (and of course you can read it in 3 months time and come back to join in the comments if it takes your fancy). So, getting on to this week’s entertainment…
I’m calling it now: this is far too much fun, and everyone should read it. Okay? Okay.
I seem to be getting involved in a bunch of social review and discussion, which makes me exceedingly happy – not least in this case, as I’ve had my eye on A Long Way To A Small Angry Planet (by Becky Chambers) and this is a perfect excuse to get on and read it! If you’re interested in joining in, the schedule for the readalong is here, and I’m sure you’d be very welcome to jump on board.
I’ll be posting weekly updates along with the rest of the group, followed my usual review when I complete the book.
