Sci-Fi July 2018

We’ve had fantasy, we’ve had thriller and horror. So for the next monthly challenge..
I’d say it’s time to add in some science fiction in the mix. Let me introduce you to Scifi July!

Honestly, a year ago I never would’ve thought I’d create a challenge related to science fiction – simply because I didn’t like science fiction. That is, until I discovered I simply dislike science fiction movies. Yes, there’s a difference! Anyway; let’s get on with it!

◊ Post a blogpost saying you’ll be joining me in reading as many sci-fi books as you can or own!
◊ Share your list of science fiction novels and show us which ones you’re going to try and read.
◊ If you’re sharing your updates on social media, use #ScifiJulyBM so we can follow up on each other!

It isn’t necessary to dedicate the whole month to my monthly challenges.
Our TBR’s are all through the roof so it can already be a challenge to read only one or two books that fit this month’s challenge. You can still join then! The more the merrier!
Remember, it doesn’t matter how much you read. As long as you have fun reading.
And as long as we can tackle our TBR’s, bit by bit.

Who’s ready for some science fiction? Anyone who reads science fiction anyway? Maybe some who rarely read it?

  1. I wouldn’t have said I was a sci-fi book fan either, but I have been finding more here and there that I DO enjoy. So now I say it’s not my most favorite, but I do like certain books in the genre. I really want to re-read Illuminae and Gemina and then finally read the third book, so I might do that next month if I can.



    1. I started it a few months ago but wasn’t in the mood for it I guess so I didn’t get very far into it. Hopefully I will finally get it read. I’m glad he’s enjoying it.

  2. Oooh. Sci-fi is the genre I read most often after fantasy, so I might participate in this one. I just need to force myself to push the fantasy in the background for a month 😀

    1. Yeah, I know that, but if I want to do a challenge then I’ll focus on doing as many as I can, and not just one 😀 I won’t /only/ read sci-fi books anyway because I have ARCs and two other challenges, but still.

    2. Haha, I was like that myself at first but then I realized it took some of the fun out of it for me. Reading one genre for an entire month can be tiring! And when it comes to contemporary, it starts to feel pretty repetitive too..

      On that note, my September-challenge might be a fun one since it’s all about sequels so genres don’t matter! Perfect for people struggling with the sequel-sickness. Such as me. Haha.

    1. I’m reading the second book right now, and it is pretty interesting so far as well. Oh, and for this series, I absolutely say that the UK covers are far superior to the US ones, so I’ve bought these books from Book Depository instead of Barnes & Noble.

      And I don’t know if I’ll be joining in for this Sci-Fi July, yet. I need to look at the books I own/want to read, and see if any of them are sci-fi and begging to be read.
