Rose from Finding Land and myself are starting off the New Year with a Buddy Read! We have both been bouncing ideas, topics, and other blogger-ish things off each each other for the past few months. We’ve been friends since out freshman year of college (that was like 6 YEARS ago!!).
When I saw she had shelved Artemis on her Goodreads TBR list, I asked Rose if she wanted to do a buddy read — and she said yes!
We have both had a very busy end of year, Rose with her NaNoWriMo Project and me with my 50+ work weeks. We both decided January would be the best time to plan the buddy read.
I read The Martian for book club about two years ago, and I loved the humor and sarcasm that Andy Weir put it. It made for some serious ‘burst out laughing’ moments for me. When I saw Artemis was coming out, I knew I had to read it.
Wish us luck with the New Year and our first Buddy Read! Reviews to come shortly.
