@worstburrito @goodreads Sounds pretty good to me. @worstburrito @goodreads Loved The Martian but a bit wary of Artemis tbh. @worstburrito @goodreads Definitely. I’m only a few chapters in, and it’s already hitting me hard. How’s Artemis? @goodreads Lyrical, affecting, fantastic. (‘Sing, Unburied, Sing’ by Jesmyn Ward)
