It’s here! It’s finally here! If you’re not already familiar with Sci-Fi Month, here’s the low down:
Sci-Fi Month is a month-long blog event created by Rinn over at Rinn Reads and co-hosted by Lisa at Over the Effing Rainbow. The event is dedicated to celebrating everything amazing about science fiction – from TV shows to movies, books to comics, and everything else in between, it’s intended to help people share the love for this genre. A genre which, to be perfectly frank, I have completely neglected for far too long.
That all changes now. Slap a robe on me and call me a Padawan, because this girl’s about to be schooled in the art of sci-fi!
The (Slightly Ambitious) TBR:
- We Stand on Guard by Brian K. Vaughan and Steven Skroce
- Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach
- Arabella of Mars by David D. Levine
- Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor
- Invisible Planets, ed. and trans. by Ken Liu
- Illuminae by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff
- Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
- The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Now, thankfully I’ve been planning this for a while so I’ve already read a handful of books on this TBR…but I can’t let myself get complacent. My sci-fi empire’s not going to run itself!
Sci-Fi Film Screenings:
- Attack the Block
- Ex Machina
- Mad Max: Fury Road
Yes, it’s true. I’ve never seen Alien. The shame! *hides* BUT! The upside is that now I have the perfect excuse to binge watch some classic sci-fi films, one for each week of Sci-Fi Month. I may even do some live tweeting while watching — you’ve been warned!
If you’re like me and you want to branch out into sci-fi, or if you just want more people to discuss it with, you should join in! You can view the schedule here, follow the event on Twitter via the official @SciFiMonth Twitter account, or with the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth.
