Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event held by Jill over at Breaking The Spine! It’s all about those books you just can’t wait for and are counting down the days till they come out.
This week I’m counting down the days before I get to read is Artemis by Andy Weir. I know this book is already out – but I haven’t had the opportunity to read it yet. I absolutely adored The Martian (don’t ask me how many times I’ve read that book) and I’ve been dying while I wait to read Artemis. I think Andy Weir is one of those authors that I’ll just read anything he writes.
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.
Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.
