This is a phenomenal book and a steal at $1.99!!!!      source
This is, hands down, one of the best SciFi books I have read in years (was blessed w an ARC). Please preorder. Will be doing a review thread soon (by "review" I mean, "use every glowing adjective I know". Simply extraordinary). Will win ALL the awards. Calling it now.      source
I am halfway into @monicabyrne13’s The Actual Star and it is *easily* one of the best (if not the best) sci-fi books I’ve ever read.      source
