16 posts | 10 read | 9 to read
Black Mirror meets What If Its Us in this gripping, romantic, and wildly surprising novel about two boys lost in space trying to find their way homewhile falling in lovefrom the critically acclaimed author of We Are the Ants. When Noa closes his eyes on Earth and wakes up on a spaceship called Qriosity just as its about to explode, hes pretty sure things cant get much weirder. Boy is he wrong. Trapped aboard Qriosity are also DJ and Jenny, neither of whom remember how they got onboard the ship. Together, the three face all the dangers of space, along with murder, aliens, a school dance, and one really, really bad day. But none of this can prepare Noa for the biggest challengefalling in love. And as Noas feelings for DJ deepen, he has to contend not just with the challenges of the present, but also with his memories of the past. However, nothing is what it seems on Qriosity, and the truth will upend all of their lives forever. Love is complicated enough without also trying to stay alive.

There are a lot of things I liked about this YA m/m space romance but I‘m thinking listening to the audiobook may not have been the best way to enjoy it. It‘s too hard to go back and review confusing scenarios. I did root for Noah and DJ but it was a very complicated story. I did enjoy the humour and their side kick Jenny - there‘s even an annoying holographic character also called Jenny. A bit of a Red Dwarf meets The Matrix vibe. Low pick

NEXT SEASON?! Wow, I really do love Shaun David Hutchinson‘s writing. He really gets you to love the characters almost immediately. Then, he can pull the rug out from under you, and you still love them. There better be a sequel to this, because I need to know what happens “next season.”

I had to get on the hold list for this one, and it was supposed to be a month. Today, it just magically appeared available for download, so as soon as I get some sleep, do this phone interview for a job, and get something to eat, this is happening!!!

(2021) Three teenagers wake up in and around a damaged spaceship, not knowing how they got there or why. Adventures and romance ensue. It's light (mostly) and moves fast (always) and I enjoyed it.

It's also another from the list of books that Texas lawmaker Matt Krause wants to remove from libraries. So thanks Matt for the rec and bless your little heart.

Read #BannedBooks , y'all!

Not a roller coaster of a book. More like a tilt-a-whirl. Luna recommends it too.

Moonprismpower Agreed. 1y

💫 I love YA!
💫I just finished this today. LOL funny.
💫Usually age range of protagonist is 15-18 but occasionally there‘s college age. Teen angst. Writing style. Protagonist goals.
💫What I love most is YA gets really into the teen drama.
💫Wheelhouse: 80‘s, time travel, magic, dystopia, dark but not too scary.
How about you? #litsylove ?? 😀

Humorous, cheesy sci-fi and a romance. Loved it.
Favorite quote:

DJ “What is that all over you?”
Jenny “The less said about it the better. But the picture book was right, everyone poops...aliens too.”

Why do I dislike walking? Probably because walking on sidewalks around town is boring? Frustrating always having to wear my mask around people and wait for crosswalks too. I like walking with friends. And walking in wooded trails ...which I have to drive to. And at this point are so overly crowded with people it feels pointless sometimes. But I‘m doing it today anyway. Listening to an audiobook and treating myself to iced coffee dammit. #litsylove

magyklyXdelish Treating yourself when you do something you don‘t necessarily want to do but know is good for you is awesome! Whenever I go to therapy I treat myself to coffee across the street ♥️ 2y
RaeLovesToRead This picture made me laugh out loud! I love walking but having to do it every day makes me feel just like that 😂😂😂 2y
Moonprismpower @RaeLovesToRead yes! I‘m trying to break down my walks into destinations. That way in get my exercise and steps in. But the walk itself can still be a pain in the butt. I do enjoy my laziness. 😄😅 Next stop the hardware store. 2y

RaeLovesToRead @Moonprismpower sounds like a good plan! 😁 I've got a few loops that I do locally. Reluctantly haha 2y
Moonprismpower @Kdgordon88 thank goodness I‘m not the only one. I was feeling like an odd duck. 😟😀🤣 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I feel the same way!! Wish we could walk together ❤️ 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Kdgordon88 the struggle is real!!! 2y
Moonprismpower @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks yeah and we could shit talk walking while doing it! Then get icecream when we finish because what is the point if no treat??? 😁😂😂🤣 2y

I think holding state tests during COVID is an absolute cruel joke, but here I am proctoring a state test... at least I get some reading time?

Chaplin and I are starting this one today! I'll admit, I grabbed it from the library because of the cover, but now that I've thoroughly read the blurb I think this MIGHT be another Gays In Space book, which makes me even MORE excited to start it! 😁💕📚 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #chaplin #gaysinspace

This book had everything. Action, mystery, love and friendship. It even caught me off guard and went in a place I never seen coming and things happen that I never seen coming. Shaun David Hutchinson is a wonderful writer with wonderful stories. This story is diffently one I would have to reread to catch the things I've missed or to see how I missed what was going to happen.

Reggie We are the Ants is one of my favorite books. Thanks for throwing this out there, I‘ll have to check it out. 2y
BookNightOwl @Reggie totally agree We Are the Ants is one of the best books I've read. 2y
