    Summary: Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to – someone who is light years away?

    Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity amongst the stars. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.

    Their only communication with each other is via email – and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit across space. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love.

    But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?

    Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone . . .

    Summary: Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

    In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

    Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

    But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.

    Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home.

    But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.

    Autumn TBR

    Hey guys. I’ve started doing quarterly TBRs instead of monthly because I found with monthly TBRs I would end up not reading any of the books I had planned to and I would end up reading anything else. With the quarterly TBRs I feel more freedom to read what I want while still reading my TBR books. Anyway, here is my Autumn TBR.
