#ARCstravaganza #11

#ARCstravaganza is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful Flavia over @Flavia the Bibliophile where book bloggers/bookstagrammers have a chance to show off their ARCs/eARCs/Galleys!

Hello Readers! This is my 11th week participating in #ARCstravaganza Monday & this week I’ve chosen Artemis by Andy Weir! I was very excited to have won this arc through a Goodreads Giveaway since it is one of my most highly anticipated reads. Now, many have asked me whether I read The Martian & the answer is no I have not simply because the hype train got the best of me with that book. I still fully intend on reading The Martian & I know this because as much as I’ve been tempted to, I still have not watched the movie haha! That being said, Artemis perhaps comes with more hype & high expectations. No worries I will not be discouraged this time…also, who wouldn’t want to live in the first city EVER on the moon?!? Jazz sounds like a MC I will love getting to know & so I will be reading Artemis in anticipation of its November 14th release date 😉

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.

What are some ARCS/eGalleys you’re excited to have Bookworms? are you a fan of Andy Weir? looking forward to Artemis? If you’ve read The Martian, do you think I should still read it or watch the movie? haha! sound off in the comments below 🙂

  1. Yes! Still read The Martian! It is so good and there is so much attention to making the science factual. Also, I love how the book doesn’t magically have solutions to any of the problems. Weir did a great job of exploring human stupidity and how in a place like the moon, it can cost you life. And you gotta use that same brain to get out of the mess you created for yourself. So good. The movie is also good, but I think the book is better.

    1. Oh now i’m definitely more intrigued Kailyn! I hope this one is just as good as The Martian if not better. I’ll def read The Martian before watching the movie if I enjoy his writing in Artemis 🙂

  2. I’ve seen plenty of people getting really excited for Artemis, but until your post I hadn’t bothered checking out the blurb or checking out anything more than the cover to be honest. It sounds amazing, I’ll be waiting for your review for this one Lilly and if it’s as good as it sounds I’ll definitely be adding it to my to-read list too.
    I really hope you enjoy this one, also it’s great you managed to win it through a GR giveaway too! 😀 ❤
