Waiting on Wednesday is the brainchild of Breaking the Spine, although Jill isn’t hosting this meme anymore. In any case, I will continue to post Waiting on Wednesdays, simply because it’s one of my favorite posts to do each week:-D
I honestly wasn’t going to post this week, since I’m kind of taking a break and I literally have nothing ready to post. BUT I ran across this book and I could NOT resist! I don’t even really care what it’s about, simply that it’s ANDY WEIR.
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.
Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.
Artemis by Andy Weir. Releases in November 2017 from Crown Books. I’m so curious to read his follow-up to The Martian, which was one of my favorite books a few years ago. I hope he wasn’t just a one-hit wonder! I love that the MC is female, and a criminal to boot! I know I’ll be clearing my reading schedule when November rolls around!
