August Sci-Fi Link-Up



I'm sure you're all distracted with holidays and/or Olympics (I know I was) so I asked Twitter to suggest some easy and/or fun sci-fi choices for the August group read. After a quickie poll, you decided on The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas which falls under the time-travel section of science fiction (or perhaps fantasy, but we're not going to quibble over labels). If you've got it on your shelves, do dust it off and join in!

As always, you are free to pick your own choice for the challenge as well. Remember all reviews will go into the pot at the end of the year for a chance to win goodies.


Once you've read a sci-fi book and written down your thoughts please add your link below. If you don't have a blog you can link to any public book-sharing site. Please add the direct link to your review. Any links not relevant to the challenge will be removed.



Please add both YOUR NAME and the TITLE OF BOOK in the "Your Name" field.

    1. You can add multiple reviews for each month providing you read them in that month. The Game of Thrones series is fantasy so no, it wouldn't count.

  3. Can you make sure you puit the BOOK TITLE on the linky not just the name of your blog? Will see if I can edit them but you may have to delete and re-add.

  4. Once again I have returned to a classic. But Alfred Bester's magnificent romp through space is worth it.

  6. Read Manhattan In Reverse halfway through August but only posting the review now. Great book of short stories by Hamilton.
