Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

#mswl I’d really love a tightly plotted adult space opera. Kind of thinking a failing “abandoned” human colony sets out to make their way home. Maybe some crazy time dilation or something has occurred. Maybe very few men on the colony survive & they are trying to save them..cont.

For this particular #mswl, I’m not looking for intergalactic empires, rogues, mercenaries, smugglers etc. I really want to feel the vastness of space, that feeling of being alone. I want the story and the setting to mimic that feeling of isolation as well as Passengers did!
