Winter’s Orbit – SciFiMonth Readalong Week 4

I was really sad to come to the end of Winter's Orbit, but also very happy to reach the conclusion and unravel all the mystery and romantic tension. So glad we chose this as the readalong book for this month, because it's the perfect one to discuss with others!

We've reached the halfway mark of Winter's Orbit by Evarina Maxwell, and things are definitely picking up the pace! If you're catching up, here are my thoughts on last week's reading, and here is the Goodreads page where you can find all the questions and other people's posts. Week three includes chapters 16 to 22, so please be aware that this post will contain spoilers up to that point and including earlier chapters as well. Read at your own peril!

Winter’s Orbit – SciFiMonth Readalong Week 2

Right, last week's post was a bit rubbish on my part but I'm setting out to talk about week two's reading ahead of time, so hopefully I offer something a little more insightful and do justice to the brilliant questions that, this week, have been posted by imyril over on the Goodreads page for the readalong. Things are getting more interesting after the introductory section of last week, and I want to take this moment to say that this post will contain spoilers for Winter's Orbit up until the end of chapter 15, so if you aren't there yet and don't like to know, please don't read ahead!
