I decided to start doing highlights of books that really gripped me every year. Even though it isn’t 2023 anymore, I’d figure, let’s start there!
I do have an Audible library but it’s extremely difficult to share your library data with other people, so blame Audible and not me.
Now onto the highlights.
Okay. Fun, fun, fun! Just, fun! I did blurb this, but still, I read it again and it was just so freaking fun! Get this, now! Accessible space stuff? Check. Accessible space ships? Check. Just go get this now!
I’ve written about the hype before but despite the fact everybody hates this book, I picked it up precisely because everybody hated it. I picked up the Graphic Audio version of the audiobook because I didn’t like the audiobook by Recorded books and I was just, well, hooked, and it allowed me to escape and dream about having my own Xaden Riorson, well, let’s not go there! The series is hated by most people. In fact, by everyone I know, in and out of the disability community, but I like how it was an inspirational story. Some readers say it was problematic disability representation, but I actually think we need more disabled authors writing problematic representation anyway because none of us are a perfect representation.
It is romance though, despite what the synopsis will have you believe. It’s not a fantasy book. It’s a romance book.
I can’t stop thinking about this book. It was educational, and very nice to get some African history and politics in this. I can’t stress how much I loved the banter between these two as well.
This was a lot more fun than I expected! I had a huge blast with this one and liked it better than the first book in the series, because, well, honestly, I have a soft spot for alpha sweeties with money, let’s be honest.
Trust me, next year there will be a much better roundup. I had to go down to dinner before finishing this post and now I wanna read so, for now, Toodles!
