September book: choices
Do people have preferences for a September book?
I have two we could read.
- A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine (and review), recent Hugo-winner. It's a high-stakes political thriller with interesting things to say about imperialism (from both sides of the act).
- Space Opera by Catherynne Valente (review) is a well-done comedy, of Eurovision in Space, but with a real life-affirming heart about art and what it means to be human.
I've read them both and liked them.
Which would people prefer? (I don't promise to pay any attention to replies!)
