Sci Fi November 2018 in Review

Whew! It’s already December? How did that happen?? I hope everyone enjoyed NanoWrimo that participated! And if you didn’t get to the word count goal, you’re still a star because some progress in better than no progress and writing is hard! I dabbled myself a few years back and there’s always the hope that I’ll get inspired again.

Anywho, Science Fiction November! I think mine was pretty successful considering how busy I’ve been. I had hoped to convince Mr. Cupcakes & Machetes to watch some sci-fi TV shows together but that didn’t happen. We were fully involved in Netflix’s Mindhunter. (We’re always behind on the good things.) If you’re into True Crime, I highly recommend giving it a go.

Recap:

Parasite (Parasitology #1) – Book Review

After the Crown (The Indranan War #2) – Book Review

Foundation (Foundation #1) – Book Review

Gotham City Sirens Vol.3 Strange Fruit – Comic Review

Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse #1) – Book Review

Vox – Book Review

Join in the Fun, it’s Sci-Fi Month

I don’t know who started it, I don’t who currently hosts it, but November is Science Fiction month. I happily participate every year. I’ve already started my first read, Parasite and it’s been a good choice so far.

I won’t plan out which books I read any further than they’ll be in the Sci-Fi genre. I’m a mood reader and if I give myself too many rules when it comes to reading, I won’t enjoy myself.

Are you going to join in on the Sci-Fi fun??

Sci-Fi Month in Review

Okay, so I didn’t have the most successful sci-fi month. I mean, I always plan to do a LOT more but life is hectic these days so I’m proud I managed this much. *Stands with chest puffed out, fists on hips, imaginary cape blowing in the wind*

Book/Comic Reviews:

Bombshells, Vol. 1: Enlisted – Comic Review

Old Man’s War – Book Review

Ready Player One – Book Review

Gotham City Sirens, Vol.1: Union – Comic Review

Two novels and two graphic novels ain’t too shabby. Plus, that’s two new authors I’ve never read. The funny thing is, I’ve saved about 5 books in the last year to specifically read this month and only read one. Hah. Guess I’ll just have to squeeze those in in the new year. (Which is right around the corner, holy crap!)

Science Fiction Month

AAAAAHHHH! It’s officially Sci-Fi month!

I’ve always been a huge fan of sci-fi movies, (die hard Star Wars fan here) but I haven’t read very much sci-fi. At least not in comparison to how much fantasy I’ve read. So my goal for the month of November is to add more sci-fi to my reading list. I probably won’t go as hardcore as I did with paranormal/horror for Halloween but I don’t want to burn myself out on a genre either.

I went to the library yesterday and grabbed quite a few books. I don’t know if I will get to them all but I’m going to try. I think I’m going to start with Station Eleven.

In order to commit even harder to this month’s goal, I’ve joined the lovely Rinn Reads in her Sci-Fi celebration of epic proportions.

Are you going to celebrate Sci-Fi month? If so, how do you plan to do that?
