Get Ready for #SciFiMonth 2020!

You may have noticed the hashtag #SciFiMonth and its related images popping up all over the book blogosphere lately. That’s because it’s November and that means Sci-Fi Month is here! The BiblioSanctum has had such a great time being a part of this event in previous years that we’re participating again in 2020. This year, the hosts imyril from onemore.org and Lisa from Dear Geek Place.

Starting today, 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 reviews, weekly memes and features, spotlights, and all that other fun stuff of other genres. 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 this year my sci-fi coverage will probably be more lowkey. Once more I’ll be playing things mostly by ear, though I do have a couple ideas I’m bouncing around in my head, so stay tuned! As always, I also have a few books I’ve been saving up for November as I use this opportunity to catch up with sci-fi releases I might have missed earlier in the year. Below you’ll find a preview of some of the books I hope to read next month!

  1. Unreconciled is probably the most tense of the Donovan books so far – delightfully so: I’m certain you will enjoy it and I look forward to your review. And I have forgotten about Memento from the Illuminae series! What would I do without my fellow bloggers??? 😉

  2. Glad to have you aboard! Every year I promise myself I’ll get more sorted out in advance, and every year I find myself at the start of November with no posts lined up… but it seems to work out. I seem to have read way less SF in 2020 than other years, so I’m just grateful for the nudge to balance out my reading diet a little.

    (In case you missed them, there are banners that just feature the hashtag and dates – no tagline – if you’d rather use those)

  3. I am so behind this month that I’ve lost the plot with, well, firstly Spooktastic and now this event. I’ll be following from the sidelines this year and trying to catch up with reading and blogging.
    Happy reading.
    Lynn 😀
