The calendar page has turned, the planets have aligned … SciFi Month is here! Hosted by our most excellent captains imyril of onemore.org and Lisa of Dear Geek Place this is the time of year to deep dive into all things science-fictional and maybe knock a few titles off the old TBR tower.
I don’t normally do this kind of “here’s what’s coming” post, I know, but I’m trying to keep my brain busy today, so let’s talk anticipation!
What am I reading this month?
I’m planning to read and post about the following:
- Fire of the Dark Triad by Asya Semenovich
- The Echo by James Smythe (actually, I’ve just finished this and oooooo, so many thoughts!)
- Astra: Lost in Space by Kenta Shinohara
- All Systems Red, Rogue Protocol, Artificial Condition and Exit Strategy by Martha Wells (because no, I haven’t read them all yet, and yes, I know I’m the only one who hasn’t!)
The marvellous imyril and I have also been buddy-reading Too Like the Lightning by Ada Palmer and we have Thoughts to share.
And, of course, I’ll be taking part in the SciFi Month Read-along of Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell. (As if you don’t know by now that I’m a sucker for a read-along). All details for the read-along can be found via the link to Dear Geek Place above, where the awesome Lisa is keeping us organised.
Not much, as I’m trying to keep things chill. While I’m extremely tempted to tackle the SciFi Month Challenge prompts via Instagram I really don’t have the time, so I’m giving it a miss. I still might throw in my tuppence-worth here and there.
I will be posting my Desert Island Remote Moon Reads though, and having another go at Six Degrees of SF-nal Separation. I’m also doing this rather lovely Intergalactic Book Tag which has SciFi Month written all over it.
And I kind of have to play the SciFi Month Book Bingo because, well, Book Bingo. There’s slim chance of my achieving a line, but if I’m creative I might manage something half respectable, like a top-left cluster. 🙂
But enough about me, what about you? What’re your plans, casual or complex, for SciFi Month?
