Scifi Month 2021 – Wrap Up

Well another Scifi Month is in the books! This was my first year joining in the fun from the start (as it was the first year I actually remembered to line things up), and I have to say that it went way better than I would’ve thought! Granted, I didn’t accomplish everything I set out to do, but I’m mostly a mood reader, so it’s quite hard to schedule things in advance. And… I’m not disappointed in the results! Got 6 reviews up, along with some prompts, and had great fun reading everyone else’s posts around the blogosphere. If you missed theirs, I’ll include links to just a few of my favorite sites below so you can go check them out!

Read

Prompts

My Favorite Scifi Novels of the Last 10 Years

Beautiful World of Books

Revelation Space (Alastair Reynolds)

The Wayfarers (Becky Chambers)

Four Science Fiction Trilogies (Kristyn Merbeth, D. Nolan Clark, Jay Posey, Mike Brooks)

Misses

As always, not everything goes as planned. I had some other posts, reviews and reads that I scrapped for a number of dumb reasons (such as I didn’t get around to writing them, reading them, or so forth). Let’s take a look at a few of those (obviously, these aren’t linked as there’s nothing to link to) here:

• Shards of Earth – by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Didn’t have time to read this. Still on the schedule for Ketchup Month, though!

• Project Hail Mary – by Andy Weir

While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, sometimes the review just isn’t forthcoming in the writing.

• Salvation – by Peter F. Hamilton

While I’ve heard good things about the rest of the trilogy, the intro piece to the Saints of Salvation is just a collection of vaguely related tales and history set to introduce the cast of the series. I started it earlier this year, and it’s just turned into a slog.

• Beautiful World of Murderbot

Pretty sure you can guess the idea here. It’ll probably happen at some point, but not now!

• The Beauty of the Planet Donovan

Again, a BWoB centered around W. Michael Gear’s series of Donovan. I’d expect this down the line as well.

In Case You may have Missed…

The Bibliosanctum

Books, Bones & Buffy

Space and Sorcery

Realms of My Mind

Reißwolf

The Captain’s Quarters

A Dance With Books

Re-Enchantment of the World

I apologize if I missed you but I had to stop and like, go do things (mostly eat) and really I could just go on for ever and ever with this list. There are so many good blogs out there, go check them out!

And that’s it!! Hopefully I’ll see you next year for more Scifi Month! Otherwise, maybe I’ll see you back tomorrow for the intro to Ketchup Month! Bye!!!
