Billed as a romance, this book is a well-plotted, beautifully written story about 2 agents on opposing sides traveling through time, planting seeds, & pulling threads in order to set their side up for winning because in war, it‘s all about winning...until the 2 agents fall in love & have to find a way to escape the war & be together. Love the premise & while I liked the story, the romance/falling in love wasn‘t really believable. Still, a pick.

Up next, one of the books I picked up at a Parnassus Books. Technically a novella, this one has blurbs from Madeline Miller, Kelly Link, Martha Wells, John Scalzi and Ann Leckie. On top of all that, it‘s a finalist for a 2019 Goodreads Choice Award for Science Fiction. If this isn‘t a good read, I‘m going to be sorely disappointed!

On a work trip, sitting at the bar in a fancy little Italian place, reading a good book. Ahhh, perfection.

1. If nothing else, read the tagged book that‘s due back to the library next week.
2. Lots of eating. Might meet my niece‘s boyfriend this year the stars are properly aligned.

"Books are letters in bottles, cast into the waves of time, from one person trying to save the world to another."

Intriguing and wonderfully weird science fiction time war forbidden romance. This novella was not what I expected but was very well written. The story unfolds as a series of letters between 2 rivals of a war. It includes a diversity you don't see often in this genre. For that reason, it's an important piece of modern literature.

I enjoyed this space adventure- aliens, space pirates, psychic cats-it was a fun read! Don‘t be deceived by the cartoonish cover, this read is definitely for adults. I hope the next book has more about the cats!

A weak pick - maybe a 3 if I assigned numbers (which I don't). The language is wonderful and poetic, and fortunately it's not an entirely epistolary novel, there's narration in between the letters. However, I have Demands on my time travel stories, and this is a little too soft - not much of the hows or whys. It makes sense as the main characters don't know. Still. Fast read, only 200 short pages.

Romeo and Juliet meets Doctor Who. What‘s not to like? I think the novella length was perfect for this story. It left you wanting more without feeling like you missed out on anything.

rachelsbrittain Completely agree. I really enjoyed this one 4w
