Read all about it…#RRSciFiMonth


A quick post to notify you of a readalong that starts at the beginning of December.  I’m announcing this now whilst we’re still in Sci Fi Month (hosted by Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow) to give you all time to lay your hands on a copy and take part.  I’m just thoughtful like that.  Anyway, if you’ve read Becky Chamber’s Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and fancy getting on board for the next adventure this readalong could be just for you.  Here are all the details plus the link to the Goodreads page (schedule pasted below for quick ref).  If you fancy joining in then dive in with the comments or stop on over to the Goodreads page so we can all welcome you aboard.

And now, for the science bit…

A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2):

closed-and-commonLovelace was once merely a ship’s artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has no memory of what came before. As Lovelace learns to negotiate the universe and discover who she is, she makes friends with Pepper, an excitable engineer, who’s determined to help her learn and grow.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that no matter how vast space is, two people can fill it together.

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet introduced readers to the incredible world of Rosemary Harper, a young woman with a restless soul and secrets to keep. When she joined the crew of the Wayfarer, an intergalactic ship, she got more than she bargained for – and learned to live with, and love, her rag-tag collection of crewmates.

A Closed and Common Orbit is the stand-alone sequel to Becky Chambers’ beloved debut novel The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and is perfect for fans of Firefly, Joss Whedon, Mass Effectand Star Wars.

Here’s the schedule:

Week 1: Friday 2nd December – Start of Part 1 up to Page 94 (“…yellow, silver, white…”), hosted by Over the Effing Rainbow
Week 2: Friday 9th December – Page 95 (Jane, Age 10 “Jane was still tired…”) to End of Part 1, hosted by imyril at There’s Always Room For One More
Week 3: Friday 16th December – all of Part 2, hosted by Lynn at Lynn’s Book Blog
Week 4: Friday 23rd December – Part 3 to End, hosted by Mogsy at The BiblioSanctum

    Oooh, thanks for the heads up! While I haven’t read “A Long Way…” yet, it is on the Sci-Fi Month TBR so hopefully I’ll be able to finish it and participate in the readalong for the sequel. I do love a good readalong! 🙂

    Just a few more weeks! My first time hosting a week for the SFF group too, this should be fun 🙂

    I had this one on my TBR for this month but it’s probably not going to happen so I’ll try to participate in the readalong! 🙂

      Excellent! That would be brilliant. I’m really looking forward to it.
      Lynn 😀
