Hello lovely readers! It’s Sci-Fi Month! Let’s celebrate! :)
I have to be honest – I am new to the Sci-Fi genre. New as in I’ve only read a few sci-fi books. As a book blogger, I know what genres I’m interested in. Although I’m open to explore other genres, I usually read mystery, romance, chick lit, and suspense and thrillers. If you will check my review policy, you won’t see sci-fi in the list of the genres I’m interested in. It’s not because I am not into it. I just didn’t include it before as I know that I haven’t read a lot of books in the genre and since I was only starting to blog about books when I wrote my review policy, I thought to include only the genres that I am really familiar with.
So why am I participating in this event? Well, for one, I'm now a fan of the genre and I want to know more about it. I want to explore and learn more about the adventures and possibilities only a science fiction novel can offer. I’ve seen some sci-fi movies and I think they’re great. The complications in the story are always refreshing. Endless possibilities. And I want to celebrate that and all the things that make the sci-fi genre so special. I’m also adding this genre to the said list. :)
So ... are there any science fiction novels that have caught my eye? Oh ...tons! But I would really want to read Ender’s Game, The Host and The Time Machine first. How about you? Let me know in the comments below.
I am really happy to be included in this event. Special thanks to Rinn for hosting this month-long event. You rock! :)
