2012 Sci-Fi Reading Challenge


What: 2012 Sci-Fi Reading Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2012
Who: Ellie (Curiosity Killed the Bookworm)
Rules: Read science fiction books.  Quoted from her blog:

There’s more to science fiction than aliens and spaceships. The dictionary definition is: fiction dealing principally with the impact of actual or imagined science on society or individuals or having a scientific factor as an essential orienting component. So that includes dystopias, zombie viruses, genetic engineering gone awry, time travel, steampunk, extreme weather, space exploration and, of course, aliens.

I love the button! I also love that the number of books is being left to the individual participants.  However, I’m not sure what my end goal will be. I would like to get caught up with Gini Koch’s Katerine “Kitty” Katt series and I have a growing stack of Sci-Fi Romance books. I’ve also got a huge of back log of Star Wars novels — and Darth Plagueis will be released in January,  a book I’m breaking my “no SW hardbacks” rule for!  And then there’s all the other “paranormal” books that fit the description above.  I’ll just have to settle on a range: 6-10 books.

Though I won’t attempt to list all the possible books, there are a few I will mention:

  • Alien Tango (Katherine “Kitty” Katt #2) (Gini Koch)
  • Children of Scarabaeus (Scarabaeus #2) (Sara Creasy)
  • Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)  (Suzanne Collins)
  • Star Wars: Darth Plagueis (James Luceno)
  • Embrace the Night Eternal (The Envy Chronicles #2) (Joss Ware)
  • Enemy Within (Enemy #1) (Marcella Burnard)

I will track my progress here.
