Announcements, Scifi month

I’m Joining Sci-Fi Month 2017, And This Time I’m Not Even Late! Find Out What's Featured On AvalinahsBooks In November

I’m excited to announce that I’m joining Sci-Fi Month for the second time now, and for those who don’t know it – this is a yearly event that takes part on Rinn Reads and encourages us to read and talk about sci-fi as much as we want to! Personally, I love sci-fi, and I don’t think I blog about it enough. Which is why this is the perfect opportunity for me. (P.S. You can still join too!)

Without further ado, let me give you a preliminary schedule of all the sci-fi related posts that you will see on my blog during Sci-Fi Month 2017:

~ Discussions And Lists ~

  • Contemporary Sci-Fi Musts: Remembrance of Earth’s Past And Why You Should Know It
  • 5 Sci-Fi Titles That Give You Hope About Humanity
  • What’s The Reality Of Space? + Books That Are Realistic About Space: Why Us Science Fiction Nerds Should Also Read Astronauts’ Memoirs

~ Reviews ~

  • Central Station by Lavie Tidhar
  • My looooong overdue review of Gemina
  • An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon
  • The Diamond Age: or, A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson
  • Doctor Who: 50th Anniversary Collection – 11 Doctors, 11 Stories (11 authors too!)
Central Station Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) An Unkindness of Ghosts The Diamond Age: or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer  Doctor Who : 50th Anniversary Collection (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts #1-11)

So I hope you are just as excited as me and see you there!

I’m Evelina and I try to blog about books that matter, with a bit of fun there too! Disability and equality will be topics you see a lot, but there’s also a lot of scifi, fantasy and… GIFs. I’m also the proud founder of #ARCsAnonymous.

I always envy people who are at this level of Prepared. 😉

Those discussion posts sound really interesting, and I can’t wait to read them! Good stuff.


I just realised…I always forget Doctor Who is considered sci-fi…because to me it’s just…Doctor Who lol I totally have that collection but haven’t read it D: will have to change that at some point!

Looking forward to seeing all your posts 🙂


Yay! Happy to see you are participating too! Your discussions sound awesome! I have some ideas but haven’t quite figured it out yet.


Do you ever read old science fiction? Andrea from the Little Red Reviewer and Jacob from Red Star Reviews host a vintage scifi month in January.

Sim @Flipping Thru the Pages

This is great. Seems like an interesting event. Have you really scheduled all these posts already? If yes, then hat-off to you 😀

I’ve only read Illuminae and am looking forward to reading Gemina before Obsidio comes out, so I’ll definitely be interested to hearing your thoughts on Gemina for sure! 😀 Also super curious to see how your adventures with Neal Stephenson has been! Pretty cool month to participate in, hope you enjoy it, Evelina!! 😀

Looks like you’ve got some great posts planned, I’m looking forward to reading them! 🙂

Lauren @ Always Me

I hope you like The Diamond Age – it’s one of my favorites!

It’s going to be a fun month!

Laura Thomas

This sounds fun but after my October 31 day event, I’m avoiding most anything with a schedule that I can. LOL I’ll be watching for your posts though!

Zoe @ Stories on Stage

Yeah! Sci-fi is one of my favorite genres so I can’t wait to see what you’ve got planned for this month. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! <3

Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

Yay, glad we’re all joining in the fun for Sci-Fi Month! I’m looking forward to checking out your reviews 😀


Sounds fun! I have a tough time getting into sci-fi sometimes, but when I do, I usually quite enjoy them. And I really hope I can get to Gemina this month as well! Did you like it?

Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books

Ohh a sci-fi month, that sounds fun! I’ll be looking forward to your review of Gemina – I really liked this book, even if, well…it was quite crazy at times 🙂 Hope you’ll have tons of fun with this sci-fi month! 🙂

Aw, I wish you had an Octavia Butler book on your list! Also, I always think of this month as “Novella November,” but I don’t see many people read novellas! Poor, sad, neglected genre.
