Be there or be E = mc2

As one door closes another one opens up…  Sci Fi November comes to an end today.  A great event run by Rinn Reads and Oh, the Books! and The Sci-fi Experience over at Stainless Steel Droppings begins tomorrow.  This event also coincides during the month of January with Little Red Reviewer’s Vintage Sci Fi.   So, I console myself with the fact that even though I didn’t read everything I intended during the month of November I can continue with my sci-fi exploration during the next couple of months.

Both of these events are very relaxed  There are no real rules – well, the only real rule is that you enjoy yourself!

I’ve made some lists:

Reading that I completed for Sci-Fi November:

  1. Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
  2. Ellie Quin in Wonderland by Alex Scarrow

Reading lined up so far for the Sci-Fi Experience:

  1. Fortune’s Pawn
  2. Leviathan Wakes by James S A Corey
  3. The Time Traveller’s Almanac – I probably won’t read all of this but thought I’d take a look at some of it; and maybe
  4. Dust by Hugh Howey – try and finish the Wool Trilogy

Reading lined up so far for Vintage Sci-Fi:

  1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  2. A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
  3. Starship Troopers by Robert A Heinlein
  4. The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Let’s face it – I’m probably not going to manage all of that but I like the look of lists – they just seem so orderly and organised!

Anyway, lots of sci-fi goodness awaits on the horizon – all that you need to do is jump on board.

That’s it for me – over and out!

    I had a blast with Sci-Fi November, so it’s nice to know there are other blog events coming up. Thanks for the heads up!

    I also didn’t get to read all the sci-fi books I wanted for Sci-Fi November, but that’s not going to stop me either 🙂 Still hoping to knock all these books off my to-read pile in the coming months!

      My reading was shocking in November – don’t imagine it’ll get much better in December as it’s a busy month! Still these TBR’s have to be toppled!!

    Fun that you can just continue on through two more events. Glad you are joining in both of these. You’ve got some good books lined up. I really enjoyed both Fortune’s Pawn and Leviathan Wakes. I’m behind in the Wool series. I still have 2nd and 3rd Shift to read, as well as Dust.

    I read Starship Troopers for the first time a few years ago and really enjoyed it. It is nothing like the film, which I am not fond of. I am very fond of A Princess of Mars.

      Looking forward to these books – it takes me a while to choose so hopefully these will be ones I really enjoy!

    I hope you continue to enjoy your sci-fi reading. I am particularly interested to hear your thoughts on classics sci-fi novels like Fahrenheit 451 🙂

    • lynnsbooks

      I’m really looking forward to Bradbury and Arthur Conan Doyle!

    Wow talk about a lot of SF events lately. I hope you love Fortune’s Pawn – I know I did.

    I should totally get to reading Leviathan Wakes – I might grab the audio.

      I know – I’ve had it for over 12 months – I need a better system!!!
