Sci Fi Month is an event hosted by Rinn Reads, where the genre as a whole will be picked to pieces with reviews, giveaways, top tens and author interviews. But the glory isn’t just limited to books, there will be posts about films as well. More information can be found here, and a schedule with all the planned posts is available here.
I first heard about this event on twitter, and at first I thought I wouldn’t be able to take part since I haven’t really read a lot of sci-fi at all. But, I discovered there would be room for me in the event as a newbie to the genre.
Many of the participants are talking about films, books, authors and more, but I’ve chosen to take two popular YA novels that had sci-fi as a major theme. I haven’t really tried the genre before because of two things – I
have had a fear of aliens, and I thought all sci-fi books contained aliens. But, I discovered that one of the many best books I’ve read this year, I Am Legend, is a sci-fi novel. So, they can’t be all that bad (or alien infested).
I plan to review my chosen novels on these dates:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis – 21st November
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan – 28th of November
Then, at the end of November, I’ll do a round up post, on whether these books met my expectations, changed my views on Sci Fi and whether I am a new fan of the genre or not.
