#FridayReads THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL ANGRY PLANET by Becky Chambers - a great read for WorldCon weekend! "I first read this book last summer while I was going through a really rough time. I was stressed and overworked and the ripples of the election were really sinking in. I mostly bought it because of the shelf talker, which had something to do with found family in space and diverse characters.
I was totally not prepared for how much I would love this book.
It’s a true ensemble cast of wonderful characters, both human and not, who become a loving, ridiculous family despite being different alien species and from different groups of humanity. Whenever someone comes into BSC looking for science fiction, I immediately steer them towards Becky Chambers. I’ve even sent it off to someone during an instagram book exchange!
The crew of the Wayfarer reminded me of how beautiful sci-fi can be- I cried at least a few times while reading, and have cried over all of the Wayfarer books. TLWTASAP and the other books in the Wayfarer series are perfect for fans of Firefly, Star Wars, or any other group of scrappy misfits looking out at the emptiness of space and seeing a great adventure." - J
