The Wayfarer series by Becky Chambers is my favorite series I've read this year. I love that it's a feel-good Sci Fi with heart, and both books are full of little gems of wisdom like the quote above. If you like Firefly, Star Trek, Farscape, Star Wars, etc. then you should try out this series. The next book, Record of a Spaceborn Few, comes out in the summer.

Reading is one my favourite ways to pass the time and take my mind off the clock, and old sci-fi - Asimov particularly - has always been a fun way to stretch the mind. This book, a classic, has me quite struggling though!
.
The premise is interesting, allowing the story to explore issues of identity and mis-appropriation of resources amid greedy political and corporate squabbles. So far, so topical. The dialogue is where the trouble is. It's so very, very patronising to women! Gah, still topical!! There's an incredibly long way to go on equality, as recent events have shown, but thankfully there is progress on that journey nonetheless. Sometimes harrowing in how it's made, but there is progress.
.
For a wonderful read in a not dissimilar vein and brought bang up to date, go find "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" by Becky Chambers. It's so very warm, funny, and thought provoking - I really would describe it as a beautiful book. It shows a brighter universe, now and in the future. :^)
.
Oh - if anyone has the sequel ("A Closed and Common Orbit") and would send it to me, they could be sure of some BBnT space themed goodies in return...

I'm excited to get into this. Long Way to a Small Angry Planet was such a fresh, enjoyable, clever read and it deserves all its accolades. High hopes for Wayfarers 2 🌌❤️✨

We're so excited about the next installment of Becky Chambers' Wayfarers series. A really enjoyable, fresh sci-fi tale with some likeable characters revisited 🚀🌌💙

No one makes me love AI the way Becky Chambers does 🤖❤️
Just finished A Closed and Common Orbit, and it's as lovely and filled with humanity as The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet was.
