Get Ready for #SciFiMonth 2019!
You may have noticed the hashtag #SciFiMonth and its related images popping up all over the book blogosphere lately. That’s because November is right around the corner, which means it’s that time of the year again! Yep, it’s Sci-Fi Month. The BiblioSanctum has had such a great time being a part of this event in previous years that we’re participating again in 2018. This year, the hosts are Lisa of Dear Geek Place and Imyril of One More.
Starting tomorrow, we’ll be joining other bloggers, authors, and readers in a month-long celebration of everything science fiction. That doesn’t mean we’ll stop covering all our other favorite speculative fiction genres though! You will most definitely continue to see our usual fantasy reviews, weekly memes and features, spotlights, and all that other fun stuff. The only difference is, some of our reviews and posts will branch off from the usual to encompass the various mediums of science fiction.
The great thing about Sci-Fi Month is that it’s a casual, low-pressure event. It has no deadlines, no specific challenges or quotas to meet–just a month of fun to enjoy, discuss, and share everything science fiction. Sci-Fi Month is whatever you make it, and you are welcome to join anytime. The organizers have also arranged for some pretty exciting features like giveaways, readalongs, and a whole lot of other fun activities including prompt challenges and sci-fi themed Top Tens. So if this is something you’re interested in taking part of, head on over to the Google form to sign up.
After that, grab the banner and button, and dive right in! Everyone is welcome! Be sure to also follow the hashtag #SciFiMonth and follow the event on Twitter @SciFiMonth so you won’t miss a thing!
Here at The BiblioSanctum, simply look for posts tagged with “SciFi November” or those that contain the SciFi Month images and hashtags to see how we’re getting involved. Come explore the wonders of science fiction with us, and to kick off the discussion, feel free to let us know:
How long have you been a fan of science fiction?
Why do you like sci-fi and what is your favorite thing about it?
What are your favorite books/games/films/TV shows in the genre?
What are your plans for Sci-Fi Month?
As for me, I haven’t been on the ball with regards to planning, so once again I’ll be playing things mostly by ear. That being said, I do have a few books I’ve been saving up for November, and I also plan on using this opportunity to catch up with a few science fiction titles I missed reading earlier in the year. Below you’ll find a preview of some of the books I hope to read next month. As you can see, I’m aiming for a good variety, including some humor, some romance, plenty of aliens, a bit of weirdness, a healthy dose of good old fashioned space opera, and of course, some Star Wars!
