Abroad in the Stars (Galaxia Pirates #1) by A.M. Halford
Abroad in the Stars - A.M. Halford
Abroad in the Stars is the first book in the Galaxia Pirates series, and we get a very thorough look at just what being a Galaxia pirate involves. Tony is their navigator, and has done a magnificent job of it so far, earning his place among the crew. Only a select few know of his 'real' identity of Antonio Santiago. Personally, I would say that Tony is more real than Antonio, but there you go. When the Captain's brother returns to the ship, sparks fly between him and Tony. Actually it was more than sparks that flew when they first met in a dark alley, but you'll read that bit for yourself. When Tony's parents decide they want him back, the crew of the Galaxia will do all they can to get their crewman back. And Craig will stop at nothing until he gets his lover back.
 
This is a brilliant story, HOWEVER if you are looking for rainbows and unicorns, then you're probably going to be disappointed! Personally, I loved the rough and tumble of it. Tony wanted exactly what Craig wanted to give. Both of them understood each other with no miscommunication. The steamy scenes are intense and brilliantly written. The world-building is mostly about the ship and Tony's family, but really, that is all you need for this story. You get an exceedingly good idea of the troubles the pirates face, and how much being a crew member means to them, and just what they will do if one of them is in danger.
 
Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this story grabbed me from the beginning. Fantastic start to the series, fantastic story, can't wait for more. Absolutely recommended by me.

Reading progress update: I've read 15%.
Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie

Is there a book before this one??? Cause I am totally lost right now. I know I need a good space opera right now, but I am just getting facts/feelings/things thrown at my head and nothing is making sense right now.

A Wrinkle in Time
A Wrinkle in Time (Time, #1) - Madeleine L'Engle

I read this book a long time ago, probably in 5th or 6th grade, but I felt like I needed a refresher before the movie is released later this year.

 

All in all, I really enjoyed it. It is obviously written for kids so it was a very quick read and easy to get through. Some of the science of it is more complex than I remembered though, so it's definitely still a good read for adults. 

 

It is definitely a book of the 60s. The language and phrases used were things that would never be said today, but I think that's part of the charm of this little book. I adore the characters, especially the Mrs W's and Aunt Beast. 

 

I'm definitely glad that I reread this. Now I can't wait for the movie version, and I can't wait to see what Ava Duvernay and the cast do with it!

Annihilation
Annihilation - Jeff VanderMeer

I first picked up this book last year, after I saw the trailer for the movie. I was very intrigued. The movie looked really great. 

 

But when I first picked it up, I could not get into it. I got about 40 pages in and gave up. But I decided to give it another chance this week, since the movie comes out next month and I wanted to know what to expect going in.

 

But the truth is, even after reading the book, I’m still not sure what to expect. I feel like so much of the book is left to the readers’ imagination that I don’t know how it’s going to translate to film. But that’s not important.

 

I really overall enjoyed Annihilation. Slow at first, but after about the first third of the book, I got really interested in it. But I wish it would’ve given more answers. So much was left open-ended. Too much, in my opinion. I really don’t know much more about Area X than I did when I began reading the book. Maybe that was purposeful. Sure, I know the biologist’s thoughts and theories about what she saw, but that gives the reader no solid truths about Area X and what’s really happening there. (I do NOT understand the Crawler at all and was very confused about the descriptions of it and what it was doing, even though I feel like those were very important to the story.)

 

Maybe the other two books in the series continue to explain things better, so I guess I’ll have to read those to really grasp what went down in this book.

Dawn of Chrysalis

After narrowly claiming victory in the first invasion, the F.O.R.C.E. team thinks it has time to rest. Not so. When Whatsit finds out Chrysalis is in danger, he's determined to rescue his fellow Chrysallamans. It's a task he knows he cannot accomplish without the help of his human brethren, but humans and Chrysallamans may not unite against a common foe. Will they work together or be destroyed?
