Announcements, Scifi month

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.

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:

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 🙂

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.

I put links to Little Red Reviewer and Red Star Reviews below. There are a bunch of blogs that participate. They also have a Twitter account that Jacob runs – @VintageSciFi_

Old science fiction can be all over the place on both sex and race (and not necessarily in the same direction). But, frankly, there are as many bad opinions in the new stuff as in a lot of the old stuff. Andrea reviews a lot of older books, so maybe you can get some ideas from her blog.

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

Sim @Flipping Thru the Pages

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!! 😀

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

Hahaha I did finally read it and I totally agree! Gemina was so fantastic and it definitely pulled me out of my reading slump. I’m so excited for Obsidio!!

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.

If you want something more beep boop and robots, try 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you want more “science,” try The War of the Worlds. Moreso, I recommend a good anthology with a variety of… Read more »
