Photo Challenge? No, Let’s Go With a Book Tag – #rrscifimonth

So as you all know by now it is sci-fi month and that is just a whole lot of fun. The hosts created a photo challenge for over on bookstagram. Instead Avery from Red Rocket Panda made it into a book tag and I totally had to jump aboard that. I do have to admit that I struggled with some of these.

Here is the graphic for it. I love that background.

Reading Challenge(65)

1 Your Sci-fi Month TBR

You can go also go back to my intention to participate in sci-fi month, and the read the first chapter book tag I did at the start of the month. Both list some of the books I wanted to read during the month.

2 Your First SF Read

This is difficult because I’m not a 100% sure of it. I think what got me interested in SF was not books. That I know for certain. That was Stargate SG-1. From there I went to ofter SF shows like Battlestar Galactica, Fringe, Star Trek Voyager and the like. When Stargate stopped I realized there were novelizations and I bought a few of those. City of Gods was the first I read. I think you could say that was my first SF read. That I recall anyway. But outside of that and outside of some dystopia I’d say Hitchhiker’s Guide and the Lunar Chronicles.

3 Man’s Best Friend (in Space)

I quite honestly have no idea. Okay I googled and got the Babel Fish in Hithhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It is not a dog but I can’t recall any…

4 Fave SF Series

Difficult but at the moment I’d say the Wayfarers books by Becky Chambers.

5 Gunpower, Treason and Plot

I mean I’d say Firefly but that isn’t a book haha. It does make me think of Revenger which I was reading at the time of filling in some of these questions. While it isn’t quite a space western there are some space pirates in a rather broad sense of the word.

6 Race You There

This prompt makes me think of On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis suprisingly. I think it was the race to the ship or the shelters as the comet was coming…

7 Dream a Little Bigger, Darling

This makes me think of The Zanna Function. An interesting middle grade fantasy read that turns the magic into science.

8 Can’t Wait to Read

I recently got the Avalon duology by Mindee Arnett and I am super curious about them.

9 Unity & Freedom

This makes me think of various dystopia books where unity in society (like In Transit) is often more a prison sentence. And there is one main character that dreams of true freedom.

10 #Stack Saturday

11 Lest We Forget, Fallen Heroes

This makes me think of Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers. ❤

12 Best Ship in the Galaxy, Kid

Can I say Wayfarer?

13 Alient Antagonists

The Lunar people from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I really like the idea of aliens living on the moon all this time haha.

14 Explore New Worlds

Defy the Worlds by Claudia Gray. They went to a completely new unknown world in between some hopping to different planets.

15 Book Rainbow

16 Hoverboards or Sonic Screwdrivers

I mean both? One is fun and the other is handy so yeah, not choosing haha.

17 I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This

Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda. The cover alone creates all kinds of bad feelings haha. Let alone the weird creatures on the ship and the backstabbing.

18 Fave Female Character

So hard but Iko from The Lunar Chronicles and Essun from The Broken Earth.

19 Fave Male Character

Most you torment me so? But I’m going with Albie Bright from The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, Danny from Timekeeper and Ashby from The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.

20 Fave Trans or Nonbinary Character

Oh this is difficult because there aren’t that many… Oh wait, Bells of course from Not Your Villain, the second Sidekick Squad book by C.B. Lee.

21 First Contact

Valiant by Merrie Destefano. An alien invasion story.

22 Thank Heavens, for That

Where the Stars Rise is such a fantastic anthology.

23 I Can’t Do That, Dave

Well I could but I probably won’t…

24 Intergalactic BAE

I need Rackmore from Revenger to be my BAE. Seriously, the size of his library…

25 #Shelfiesunday

26 Well That Sounds Omnious

1967: Ye Wenjie witnesses Red Guards beat her father to death during China’s Cultural Revolution. This singular event will shape not only the rest of her life but also the future of mankind.

Four decades later, Beijing police ask nanotech engineer Wang Miao to infiltrate a secretive cabal of scientists after a spate of inexplicable suicides. Wang’s investigation will lead him to a mysterious online game and immerse him in a virtual world ruled by the intractable and unpredictable interaction of its three suns.

This is the Three-Body Problem and it is the key to everything: the key to the scientists’ deaths, the key to a conspiracy that spans light-years and the key to the extinction-level threat humanity now faces.

27 Spine Poetry

Sleeping Giants, Waking Gods
Defy the Worlds
(The) Timekeeper In Transit
(Through the) Pitch Dark
Rejoice, Revenger
(Because) Only You Can Save Mankind

28 In Pursuit of Knowledge

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells seems to fit that well

29 I Didn’t See That Coming

This is hard because I tend to see a lot coming. I guess that is the downfall of reading so much haha.

30 Favorite Sci-Fi Month Read

At the moment I’d say Revenger. Review.
