Waiting on Wednesday [248] – ARTEMIS by Andy Weir

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!

Are you an Andy Weir fan? Let me know what you’re waiting on this week:-D

      Ha ha, I’m sure there are many people who haven’t read The Martian, but I recommend it, it’s a blast:-)

      I’m glad you loved The Martian as well! I have a good feeling about this. He’s such a good researcher, that it’s bound to be good *crosses fingers*!

  1. My encounter with The Martian, in book form, was not a good one – just for once I happened to like the movie far better than I did the book. But when I saw the news of this book yesterday, on IO9, I thought I would give this author a second chance, in the hope that his writing skills improved with time. And then there’s the Moon to be considered: how could I resist a story set on it? 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

      It was such a fun book, and knowing how much you love science, I think you’d LOVE it. The science is a big part of the story, and I thought it was fascinating.

    Had no idea this was on the way, but I loved The Martian, and who can turn down a good heist story, especially one set on the moon?

      It surprised me too, it just popped up in Facebook, I think, since I follow the author. I was very happy to see it, though:-)
