Sci-fi Month comes to a close

What a month… I’ve travelled through space, jumped through dimensions, visited technological superior worlds, and seen the havoc that humans bring down on each other. I’ve met amazing characters, laughed and cried with them, all with a killer soundtrack in the background.

It’s been a wicked month on the blog, I held my very first giveaway over on Twitter and while the circumstances weren’t great I got to see my family out of state for the first time in over a year. I’m writing this post from isolation and although I would rather be at home with my husband and kids, I’m grateful I was able to be where I needed to be, I got to celebrate my amazing Nana, and I’m taking this opportunity to read as many books as I can. Plus my isolation is being spent on property where I can open a window and front door, not in a hotel room.

With this wrap up I wanted to share what I got up to and also some blogs and reviews from some of the other crew members this month.

The soundtrack –

Weird Science  –  Big Bang Theory  –  Rocket Man  –  Moon and Back  –  Space odyssey.

The Reviews – 

The Rush’s Edge by Ginger Smith  –   Junker Blues: Mars by Lon E. Varnadore  –    Remember by Tara C. Allred  –  The Secrets of Star Whales by Rebecca Thorne  – Doors of Sleep by Tim Pratt 

The Random Posts – 

Our 10 family favourite Sci-fi movies. –  What I’m Watching  –  Kickass books I haven’t reviewed…  –   WWW Wednesday  –  Stacking The Shelves – Sci-Fi Month Edition.

This is by far the most successful I have been at keeping up with a themed month. I’m very proud of my efforts, especially because outside of these post I also read a few extra books that I didn’t get a chance to review. 


Posts I have enjoyed this month – 

Imyril @There’s always room for One More had an awesome review of Velocity Weapon by Megan O’Keefe. (I have this series in my cart waiting for me to hit by now).

Before We Go Blog had a wicked review of Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong (read the review and read the book, so bloody good.)

This book has been mentioned a lot over the last month but the review from Jason @Off the TBR was the first time I saw it mentioned. Nophek Gloss by Essa Hansen.

Sammie @The Bookwyrms Den had a post – 10 Sci-Fi Novels for the Fantasy Reader (#SciFiMonth) which I enjoyed and will be picking up a few books on that list.


And that is my month all wrapped up with a neat little bow. A big final thank you to the ladies running the show Lisa and Imyril, this was my second time participating and I’m already looking forward to next year.
