"Life is beautiful and life is stupid." 🔮 When the end of the world arrives on Earth, no one expects it to be announced by a blue half-flamingo, half-anglerfish creature with the voice of an angel, or the person you love most in the world, or a non-threatening American waitress in Cleveland depending on who you ask. 🔮 People are even less prepared to learn that Earth's absolute very last hope is the washed out, broken up, and decidedly no-longer-good former glam rock sensation Decibel Jones and the Absolute Zeroes. 🔮 But that's jumping ahead. Really, it all started a hundred years ago when the Sentience Wars almost destroyed the galaxy. 🔮 In the peace following the Sentience Wars, everyone involved felt like it was time to celebrate while also imposing a non-negotiable hierarchy on civilization. Thus began the Metagalactic Grand Prix, a combination talent show, beauty pageant, fight for supremacy where all participating species can demonstrate their sentience along with as many special effects and as much stagecraft as they can manage. 🔮 After years of existing in relative obscurity, humanity has finally entered the galactic stage. Now all we have to do is put all of our faith in two thirds of what used to be the greatest glam rock band ever and hope that they can sing their hearts out to prove our entire species' sentience, our ability to rock, and how very much we should not be summarily vaporized in Space Opera (2018) by Catherynne M. Valente. 🔮 Have you ever asked yourself what The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy would have been like with 90% more singing? If the answer is yes, then Space Opera is the Douglas Adams inspired homage to Eurovision that you've been waiting for. Even better? It's out right now and a sequel is slated for 2021. 🔮 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #lovereading #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #beatthebacklist2019 #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeatur #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #spaceopera #catherynnemvalente #beatthebacklist

How My Week Went:

Forget weird, this week was just absurd. Already looking forward to my three day weekend next week lol

What I Read:

Finished One Dark Throne and I have a lot of Thoughts. And many Feelings. Onward to Gravemaidens. In other words: I’m doing pretty well with the ARC August thing.

Now, tell me about your week!
