On the day that I am writing this I think I’ve read around 12 sci-fi books in 2021. Which sounds decent until you put it again the 100+ books I’ve read. Fantasy is always going to be my go to genre. It is where I feel most comfortable. But I think that I do need to give sci-fi a bigger chance. I do tend to like what I do pick up and it has some of my favorite authors like Becky Chambers and Martha Wells. So there is that.
For that reason I am siging up with the SpaceTime Reading Challenge in 2022. It is being hosted by Jemima Pett. Click the link to go to the sign-up post. But the basics are simple.
- Read any book that is sci-fi or fits in the time travel genres.
- Non-Fiction doesn’t count.
- Make a goal post
- Novella’s can count if they are over 100+ pages
So there are 4 levels. Planet Hopper (5 books), Interstellar Explorer (10 Books), Galactic Navigator (20 books) and To Infinity and Beyond (40 books).
I will be going for level 3 Galactic Navigator, but if it goes well I’d like to up it To Infinity and Beyond. But we shall see. I was very ambitious last year and we all know how that worked out in the end. A quick count tells me I have about 15-20 physical sci-fi books and I will probably add more in 2022 so I should be fine that way in being able to hit the numbers.
