The best thing to do with this book is reading it without knowing anything about it. It's the perfect combination of characters and plot and I absolutely love it.

what a beautiful surprise this book was.

I will be the first to say that I have let other people’s opinions on books influence me tremendously since I found goodreads and booktok. so I decided to step away from all of that for a day and explore a bookstore like I used to with little to no preconceived notions of what was popular and what wasn’t.

I picked up this book based on the cover and blurb and came out of it astounded. this book was equally enjoyable and challenging considering i’m not typically much of a sci fyi fan but I think that made it all the more better.

this was a love story, an adventure and a philosophy lesson all in one and I loved every second.

3.75/5 stars! Rounded up to 4 stars!

A huge thank you to NetGalley and Katherine Tegen Books for sending me an E-ARC for an honest review.

I have so many thoughts and feelings about this book! It was such an interesting read. I will do a spoiler review when this book releases, but until then, here are my non-spoilers thoughts!

I think that my favorite thing about this book was the romance and the plot. This book has so many different twists and turns and I could not stop reading it. There were so many moments where I would shout or jump up in shock and surprise and excitement because of the plot. The best way to describe this book is a LGBTQ+ interpretation of the movie 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY! If you love space missions, science-fiction, AI's and really interesting writing, then I really recommend this book!

Thanks for reading!
