September Sci-Fi Link-Up



In the spirit of Me Month, I am picking a book for you without a democratic vote (a.k.a. last minute rush poll). Part of this sci-fi challenge was to challenge your preconceptions of the genre (how's that working for you anyway?) and another group of books that are often much maligned by ignorance is young adult. Before you run off, it's not all sparkling vampires and swooning girls, there is some excellent writing going on with late teen/early twenties protagonists. I would love for you to read Earth Girl this month, a book I have read and reviewed already and I think you will like...

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.



Goodreads
Amazon
The Book Depository
Waterstones


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. I've been catching up on a few sci-fi classics because of this online course I'm doing. Forgot to post my previous links, but sure, better late than never :)

    1. If you're taking part in the sci-fi challenge, please can you add reviews to the relevant linky for the month you read it. This linky is for books read in September. If you're not doing the challenge but want to share anyway please just leave a link in the comments. Thanks.

  3. I think I remember vaguely seeing a review of this book on your blog. You are right, sometimes we just need to step out of our comfort zone and read something that we would normally not pick up as our first (or second... or..) choice.

  5. I just finished American Gods, but I'll try to fit Earth Girl into my reading as the month proceeds.
