It’s a new glorious day folks. We spent last night having a very small going away party for a friend and celebrating the results of the election. So I come to you this morning, slightly hungover and slowly sipping this coffee. Oh, the wonders that are coffee. I was sick this last week (not covid, I was tested), and threw up coffee. It only put me off for one day. My love of coffee knows no bounds.
Okay well, I don’t see myself ever getting into coffee enemas, so I guess there are SOME bounds.
As many of you are already fully celebrating, November is Science Fiction Month. Usually, I hop on board another blog’s hosting of a sci-fi extravaganza, but not this year. I’m just not feeling the commitment this go-around. If you wish to join in those festivities however, check out Imyril’s blog. It is a great time.
I did decide to take on a sci-fi giant and since it’s a thicker book, I didn’t want to feel rushed reading to make blog content.
I’m already 344 pages in and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I look forward to a lazy Sunday and getting more of this in.
What are your plans for Sci-Fi Month?

Dune is an amazing book, but I can understand why some peoplestruggle with it! Although, I do enjoy reading sci-fi, my plans this month are to finish the Codex Alera series and if there is time, to start Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive.
How are you enjoying Codex Alera? I’ve owned the first book for years on my kindle but I just haven’t had the ambition to start it yet.
I initially read the Codex Alera series when it was first released, over a decade ago. Overall, I really enjoyed the series, as it has such an interesting premise. Interestingly the author, Jim Butcher, said that he had been challenged to wrtite a series using the Roman Empire and Pokemon as prompts and this book series is the result.
If you like book series like A Song of Ice and Fire, with a large cast of characters all with their own agendas, but wished that those series weren’t as dark as they are, then I recommend giving the Codex Alera series a shot.
This sounds like a solid recommendation! Roman Empire + Pokemon + GOT but less dark? Sign me up! I’m glad I picked up the first book even if I haven’t gotten around to it yet. 🙂
Actually, I think a couple of other bloggers are reading or just finished Dune as a buddy read. Jackie @ Death by Tsundoku and Kim @ …… I’m having a brain fart.
I finished it. I loved it. Raced straight to the top of my favorite sci-fi novels.
Haha coffee enemas haha. For science fiction month I’ll be watching the new season of The Mandalorian on Disney+ and wearing my new T-shirt https://www.redbubble.com/i/t-shirt/The-Blob-by-LorisCloset/37020722.RY32L?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=g.pla+notset&country_code=AU&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6uyty4757AIVhzMqCh1A0wCCEAkYASABEgKYUfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
That shirt is awesome! I recently bought a LPOTL shirt with UFO’s sucking up Henry, Ben and Marcus. 😀
We’ll be watching the Mandalorian soon. We are waiting for all the episodes to finish airing so we can binge it.
Oh cool!! I wouldn’t be able to wait, not when it comes to anything Star Wars haha.
I always forget November is sci-fi month! I guess I can count watching The Mandalorian. Oh shit, I AM reading The Snow Queen which is sci-fi. Damn, now I want some coffee, but it’s kinda late and I would like to sleep tonight xD
See?! Celebrating it and you didn’t even mean too! 😛
Coffee always sounds amazing in the evening but I also will not sleep a wink lol.
Glad you enjoyed Dune! It sounds good based off what you’ve told me about it. 😀 Enjoy the rest of Sci-Fi Month!
And yayyy, coffee! I’m so pumped to finally officially join Team Coffee-at-Home. I would have made some at home yesterday but Biggby’s new winter lineup of drinks was calling my name and I got one of their white chocolate peppermint coffees with extra espresso. ❤
Ooooo girl, I could not resist that drink either! I’m so pumped that you joined the coffee at home club lol. Speaking of which, I need more in my house! D:
