The book this week is Colony by Scott Reeves. I haven’t started reading this yet because I just got it in the mail yesterday. It’s about a group of people who leave Earth to start a colony on another planet.

The sentence:

The sun had been no more than a rumor to her, a luxury reserved for the rich who lived on the upper levels, where the bottom-dwellers like her hadn’t been allowed.

That might be enough to get me to blast off into the unknowns of space too. It doesn’t sound like a happy time.

I agree, it doesn't sound like a happy time.

Thanks for participating!
