We can rebuild him…it….(#RRSciFiMonth)

People, we can rebuild it. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s third bionic sci fi month. Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow will be your hosts, better, than they were before (is that even possible?), better…. stronger…faster…. (Okay, I’ll stop now)

This is a very quick post (mainly because, like the White Rabbit) I’m late about this month’s Sci-Fi Month 2015 event being hosted by Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow.  Okay, late it may be, but because this is a sci fi event – I’ll just hop into my tardis and take a spin back in time – so actually, if you’re reading this post now – it’s really earlier than you think!!!!  It could work! Yeah, my head hurts too.

Anyway, details here – go and sign up, only if you wish of course. Who am I kidding, everybody signed up a month ago right?, But, don’t forget that I have a tardis handy…which means, technically speaking, I will be first!  Went there again..

So, to my plans, (wrings hands with glee):

I’m joining in the readalong hosted by the Lovely Lisa at OtER: The Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, details here.  I am so looking forward to this book!

I’m hoping to read:

  1. Lock-in by John Scalzi
  2. The Machinery by Gerrard Cowan

I won’t add more because November is already a bit pushed!  And, if I do find a way of making time slow down, well, I can read more.

But – I think films are very possible too.  Fancying rewatches of Blade Runner, Star Wars and Aliens – bring on the popcorn!

Tweet all about it here:;#RRSciFiMonth

That is all.

Join us.

“Live long and prosper.”

    Movies! I’m planning to feature a revisit of the first two Terminator movies. Possibly complete with livetweeting! Definitely with popcorn. *Hugs* Glad you’re joining us!

      Terminator – even better – I love Terminator – 2nd is my favourite. Don’t forget I’m on the readalong for the questions 😀 😀

    I really liked Lock In! It one of those books that I always like reading people’s reviews of. I’ll look forward to reading yours 🙂

    I’m so glad you mentioned The Machinery. I’ve had it for review and I keep forgetting about it. This would be a great month to finally add it to the top of the pile!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I’ve been saving it specially for that purpose.

    I love Blade Runner and Star Wars re-watching them for this event sounds like a brilliant idea!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah – in some respect fitting films in is easier isn’t it? Blade Runner – nice idea.
      Lynn 😀

      • jessicabookworm

        Yeah can always have a film on while you’re doing something else 🙂

      • @lynnsbooks

        Exactly – ironing and watching a film – multi tasking!

    I hope you enjoy The Machinery: it was a surprising and unusual read and I look forward to your review. And you can never go wrong with Scalzi… 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m looking forward to both. Surprising and unusual is good – I hope!
      Lynn 😀

    Ooh I need to read Lock-In. It was my book group’s SF pick a while ago, and it was one I never managed to get hold of.

    Welcome to SFM! 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Thanks – I hope to get to at least a couple of books and I’m joining with the readalong too.
      Lynn 😀

    Lock In was enjoyable! 🙂 Look forward to seeing what you think of it

    • @lynnsbooks

      Oh good – I guess I’m choosing what I call ‘easy’ sci fi – but still, it’s still sci-fi.
      Lynn 😀
