I Wish I’d Read…Providence, by Max Berry

This article is part of the ‘I Wish I’d Read’ series, celebrating the many awesome books I missed out on thanks to a particularly stressful year and an extended hiatus.

Of the many books I couldn’t get to this year, I’m most bummed about Providence, by Max Barry. The promise of an all-out space battle? Check. A small group stuck in a spaceship, hurtling toward the unknown? Check. A series of unfortunate events that throws the reader into the intensity of being alone in space where nobody can hear you scream? Double check. The description is exactly what I’m looking for in science fiction and I’m telling myself that one day, when I’m desperate to get into the books I had to move on from, this one will pop back out. Read more about the author and book below, or purchase a copy for yourself. And of course, a big thank you to G. P. Putnam’s Sons for the free review copy!

NOTE: I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
