Sci-Fi Month–Nov 2015

This year, Sci-Fi Month in November is hosted by Rinn @ Rinn Reads and Lisa @ Over the Effing Rainbow

Check out their blogs for more information about this month-long event. There are lots of activities which take place on participants’ blogs and other places throughout the internet. Check out the Google document which list participants’ activities.

I’ve loved and read science fiction since I was a young teenager. My brother who is five years older read lots of science fiction (still does) and I read some of the authors he read–Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Then I continued on to my own authors: Andre Norton and Anne McCaffrey and countless others. I go through phases in my reading–sometimes reading less science fiction and sometimes more while I read other genres as well. But through the years I’ve always read some each year.

This sounds like lots of fun and I love that it continues for a whole month!

My Plans

Review books:

  • The Martian by Andy Weir
  • Prequels to the Earth Girl series–“Earth and Fire” (a novella) & Earth 2788 (short stories) by Janet Edwards
  • A couple more if I can get them read!

Additional plans:

I have a couple more ideas I need to refine before they’re ready

I also plan to participate in The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet Read Along

Are you participating in Sci-Fi Month? How are you planning to celebrate science fiction this month?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I participated in sci-fi month last year and it was a lot of fun, but I won’t be participating this year. I am looking forward to see your posts! I lvoe sci-fi, although until two years ago I thought I didn’t like it, until I watched star wras and read a good sci-fi book.

  2. Welcome to Sci-Fi Month! 😀 I’m interested to see what you think of The Martian: I was of the minority who didn’t find it particularly amazing. I also didn’t enjoy Earth Girl that much – although I’ve only read the first book, have you read the others?

    1. Oh, Rinn, I’m sorry you didn’t like those books, because, of course, I did! I have read all the books in the Earth Girl series and liked them a lot.
