The Disasters Reviews
I had SO MUCH FUN listening to this!!
I'm not going to be able to write a real review because I wouldn't even begin to know how to write names of people and places but this book was just a delight from start to finish. I can also highly recommend listening to it (especially if you're someone who normally tends to not be able to focus on too much action, like me) because the narrator was awesome and he really made Nax's character come alive.
This was really fun! And I say that as someone who's not usually into sci-fi. I'm actually really curious how the Muslim rep is to someone who knows, because it's a surprisingly big aspect of the book. But yeah, basically, I love Quirky Squads on Missions books and this is one of those and I found it delightful. On-page bi MC, too.
Space opera with a heist, I’m in.

The Disasters is a fast-paced space adventure that manages to be fresh and fun. M. K. England's debut shows a knack for rollicking hijinks while still making time for character development.
The book also manages to be effortlessly inclusive. This is a future where everyone is welcome, and yet everyone still struggles to find their way. I'm hoping for a sequel soon with more adventures for our lovable team.
This is a super fun read. Readers get a great look at the anxiety and fear of a young pilot coming into their own. They're surrounded by others in similar states, but with vastly different externalizations of similar fears and needs fears.
Plus romance... and some cursing.
There are tons of easter eggs to be found in the richly written worlds (yeah, that's plural). If you're anything like me, there will be plenty of points where you smile and nod at the book saying, "I know that one!" The tipping ...more

Unpopular Opinion Time 🐸☕
I mean. This book is coming at me, really. I feel personally attacked.
This book was tailored specifically for me: outcasts + heist + space + found-family trope??? Wow, rude much? That’s basically what my dreams are made of.
And moreover it is also diverse and queer?
Did I sell my soul and dint’t even realise it?
Im pretty sure I ghost-wrote this book and that I’m writi ...more
