“It is that quick, it is that strong, it is that beautiful. And it is totally impossible.” 

I had a strange relationship with The Loneliness of Distant Beings, it held my interest enough when I was actively reading but as soon as I put it down to do something else it would all fade from memory and I didn’t feel like I had to pick it back up. I just sort of felt a bit meh about it all.

“Even though she knows it’s impossible, Seren longs to have the sunshine on her skin. It’s something she feels she needs to stay sane. But when you’re floating through space at thousands of kilometres an hour, sometimes you have to accept there are things you cannot change.

Except that the arrival of Dom in her life changes everything in ways she can barely comprehend. For a while he becomes the Sun for her; and she can’t help but stay in his orbit. Being with him flaunts every rule designed to keep their home in order, but to lose him would be like losing herself.

In the end they must decide what is most important: loyalty to the only home they’ve ever known, or to each other?” Summary from Goodreads.

Please be advised there are some spoilers beyond this point.

I will get to Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give another month (probably November), as it was not meant to be this month.

The books I completed were:
