Can’t-Wait Wednesday – 25th November, 2020 #Brainfluffbookblog #CWC #WOW #SciFiMonth2020


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. I have linked this post to #Sci Fi Month 2020

This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – A Desolation Called Peace – Book 2 of the Teixcalaan series by Arkady Martine – release date – 2nd March 2021

#science fiction #space opera adventure

BLURB: An alien armada lurks on the edges of Teixcalaanli space. No one can communicate with it, no one can destroy it, and Fleet Captain Nine Hibiscus is running out of options.

In a desperate attempt at diplomacy with the mysterious invaders, the fleet captain has sent for a diplomatic envoy. Now Mahit Dzmare and Three Seagrass—still reeling from the recent upheaval in the Empire—face the impossible task of trying to communicate with a hostile entity.

Whether they succeed or fail could change the fate of Teixcalaan forever.

I absolutely loved A Memory Called Empire, as it’s one of my Outstanding Reads of the Year – I’m reviewing it tomorrow. And so I am very much looking forward to this sequel! This has been an excellent year for space opera adventures – and it looks as though that run is going to continue into the coming year – yay! Anyone else got this one on their wish list?

    • It’s a cracking read – I wasn’t sure whether I’d like it as I’ve read some rather disappointing space opera reads this year, in amongst the jewels. But I absolutely loved it.

  1. I’m wondering how I missed this series. Been reading quite a bit of sci fi and these sound thrilling. I’ll be watching for your review.

    • I absolutely loved the first book A Memory Called Empire, Laura – I’ve reviewed it today (26th) and it is definitely going to make my Outstanding Reads of the Year list:))

  2. Wow, that’s crazy, I can’t believe the second is so close to release.
    That’s definitely something for you to look forward to given that you just read the first one.
    Lynn 😀

    • I actually read this one a bit earlier in the year – but I tend to stack up some of my sci fi reviews for November:)). But I’m thrilled I won’t be waiting too much longer for this next book…
