Sci-Fi Month: November 2014

Sci-Fi November Banner

I’m beginning to really enjoy taking part in these events, I think it gives our thoughts and ideas more structure and allows us to have really great discussions on a selected topic. With that in mind, I’m excited to announce that I’m participating in Sci-Fi November hosted by Rinn Reads and the girls at Oh, The Books!

So, what can you look forward to on Confessions of a Book Geek?

Well, I’m new to the Sci-Fi genre – so I’ll be answering a panel question on newbies to the genre, interviewing award-winning Sci-Fi author, Ian Sales, and discussing my previous fears of all things Sci-Fi! I’ll use this post to collect all Sci-Fi Month related articles below:

Are you participating in Sci-Fi November? Are you a big Sci-Fi fan? What are your top recommendations for a newbie?

    Sci Fi isn’t my thing and I don’t ever read it. But I did give The Host a try, and I LOVED it. So, that’s my recommendation to you. πŸ™‚


  2. I’m curious to hear your fears of sci-fi πŸ™‚

    I just found your blog so I don’t know your tastes at all. But glancing through your reviews I’d recommend These Broken Stars by Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman and Pawn by Aimee Carter. They’re both sci-fi light with a good YA vibe and a touch of romance.


  3. Hallo, Hallo! πŸ™‚

    I am a 2nd Year Participant who is finally making her rounds to all the lovely Intro SFN Posts! I posted mine a bit late (which I explain): SFN: 2014 I fell in love with sci-fi as a young girl, which I spoke about last year (all my posts are archived for SFN: click the top menu “Book Blogosphere Events” to find the SFN section!), but if I were to recommend books to start with I nearly might have trouble knowing which ones to suggest!

    I am highlighting three series this month: the Piercing the Veil series which is a Sci-Fantasy; the History Mystery series involving time travel, and a science fiction based on science fact thriller series — my best advice is to seek out stories within Speculative Fiction that interests you the most. You can visit my past showcases as much as see which stories cross into the main umbrella of Speculative Fiction in my Story Vault. You might find a new Indie author you’d love to curl into their stories!

    If you see anything on my blog that whets your interest, I’d love to see your thoughts in the comment threads! πŸ™‚ Until then, it looks like you’ve had a truly Happy Sci Fi November! Your reviews are already posted! I shall drop back and read them properly as Dystopian is a tricky genre for me – yet with Asti’s encouragement I am reading “All Our Yesterdays” for SFN! πŸ™‚
