SCI-FI NOVEMBER is BACK!!

Sci-Fi November - Hosted by Rinn Reads & Oh, the Books!

Sci-Fi November is well and truly back. After doing it last year through the lovely Rinn from Rinn Reads, Sci-Fi November has a new home but with new members to the mix and this time it's going to be even BIGGER! I've been planning this for a long while, and whilst I'm a little late with the intro post I can't wait to read and fangirl over Sci-Fi. 

Me and Sci-Fi

When it comes to reading Sci-Fi I can be in a very picky mood, but recently, I've come into to some fabulous novels this year such as The Jewel by Amy Ewing and Tempest by Julie Cross. Seems so little, but I have to be really gripped in order to enjoy them. I guess you could say its a slippery genre with me. But TV and Film however, is another thing entirely, we have had some awesome films this year as well as TV shows; Divergent, The Maze Runner, The 100 and Big Bang Theory (obviously). I have also been introduced to many classics this year for the first time, Alien (s), Terminator (s) and Predator (s). 





Let the Fun begin...

As part of Sci-Fi Month I'm also taking part in Dana's (The Nerdy Journalist) Sci-Fi Read-along. which is taking place throughout the whole of November which is awesome:

Sci-Fi Read-a-thon

My goal for this month is 3...it's a safe bet as I'm pretty busy this month sadly. But if I can beat it then I'd like to read 5 if I can! Sadly, I won't be able to start any books until next week *sighs*


Vortex by Julie Cross
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
and A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray*

*Myself and Dana are reading A Thousand Pieces of you together, so if you would like to join us then let us know on the comments or through twitter @NverJudgeaBook

Are you taking part? Have you read any really good sci-fi books? Let me know. Don't forget to stop through the whole of this month, I have lots planned.....

  1. I wish I could join up because I looooove me Science Fiction but I have decided to give myself some rest on November, try to catch up with review books and new releases I'm excited for, no more challenges for now!

    1. It was really good to do something different, to take a break from review books alike. I think I need to take on more challenges.

    1. Thanks Jasprit! If I'm honest I didn't really get through The Darkest Minds sadly, it was a little too long and complicated at the time when I wanted something easy to read. So sorry we couldn't read a Thousand Pieces of You together! Hope you are enjoying it though!

  3. I hope you'll have fun! It's a genre that I don't normally seek out, but I'll be looking forward to your reviews in case something catches my eyes. :)

    1. Me neither. I'm not really one for Sci-Fi but ones I've come across on occasion have surprised me!

    1. The Jewel is awesome and yes more dystopia than sci-fi, but i loved it all the same! :)

  6. Oh how fun. I should see what books I have on my November reading list and see if they fit this genre. I definitely want to read A Thousand Pieces of You soon.
