WAITING ON WEDNESDAY - A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, it spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s talking about!

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.
But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.
Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet introduced readers to the incredible imagination of Becky Chambers and has been nominated for any number of awards and accolades, including the Baileys Prize for Women's Fiction, the Tiptree Award, the Kitschies Golden Tentacle and the Arthur C. Clarke Award.
A Closed and Common Orbit is the stand-alone sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and is perfect for fans of Firefly, Joss Whedon, Mass Effect and Star Wars.
Heck, it had me at fans of Firefly! One of the most beautiful covers of last year belonged to The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and you know what it was beautiful inside too.

A Closed and Common Orbit is book two in the series and I am beyond excited for its release in October.

Have you read book one?
