Becky Chambers’s A Psalm for the Wild-Built has the honour of being my first read of 2023.
And what it read it was.
It had all the beauty and warmth I’ve come to expect of Chambers, with so many quotable moments. I’m sure I drove my wife nuts with the number of times I interrupted her to read something cute aloud. But she knew what she was letting herself in for when she gifted me this for Christmas.
A Psalm for the Wild-Built differs from the type of book where a lot happens. Instead, it’s the type of book that fills your heart with the warmth of a good cup of tea. It’s also the type of book that makes you ponder deep, philosophical questions.
As with everything I’ve read from Chambers, I cannot recommend it enough.
I look forward to checking out A Prayer for the Crown-Shy soon.
