Best of the Month

My favorite read of the month was To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers.


In her new novella, Sunday Times best-selling author Becky Chambers imagines a future in which, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the solar system instead transform themselves.

Ariadne is one such explorer. As an astronaut on an extrasolar research vessel, she and her fellow crewmates sleep between worlds and wake up each time with different features. Her experience is one of fluid body and stable mind and of a unique perspective on the passage of time. Back on Earth, society changes dramatically from decade to decade, as it always does.

Ariadne may awaken to find that support for space exploration back home has waned, or that her country of birth no longer exists, or that a cult has arisen around their cosmic findings, only to dissolve once more by the next waking. But the moods of Earth have little bearing on their mission: to explore, to study, and to send their learnings home.

Carrying all the trademarks of her other beloved works, including brilliant writing, fantastic world-building and exceptional, diverse characters, Becky's first audiobook outside of the Wayfarers series is sure to capture the imagination of listeners all over the world.

  1. You did have a great reading month. I really want to start the companion to the Fablehaven series sometime early next year. I love Fablehaven so much and it's nice to see you enjoy it as well.

  3. Really relieved to see a high rating for Violet. I've heard some things about the pacing of it that made me kind of nervous, but I'm hoping to start it soon.

    1. I don't disagree with the pacing complaints, but it really worked for me.
