Sci-Fi Month | TBR

Sci-Fi Month is hosted by Rinn @ Rinn Reads, and this year I'm participating!

You can find my introduction post here. Today, though, I thought I'd talk about some books I'd like to cross off my TBR this month. I own a lot of unread sci-fi books but there's no way I'm going to get to all of them, so these are just the ones I'm particularly hopeful that I'll get to!

Bitch Planet, Vol.1: Extraordinary Machine by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentino De Landro: The first volume in what looks like a very fun graphic novel series. I'm basically hoping that this is going to the sci-fi equivalent of Rat Queens.

Copperhead, Vol.2 by Jay Faerber, Scott Godlewski and Ron Riley: I enjoyed the first volume of Copperhead (reviewed here!) so I'm looking forward to reading the second!

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers: I received an eARC of this debut from NetGalley and I've heard nothing but amazing things about it, including a rave review from my friend Natalie @ A Sea Change. It's being likened to Firefly, so I'm excited to read it!

Winter by Marissa Meyer: It's finally November, which means my most anticipated release of 2015 is nearly here at last! I'm so excited for this book I may vomit.

Blackout by Mira Grant: I really to stop putting finishing this trilogy off. I just don't want it to end, and I'm worried it's going to break my heart even more than the previous two books already have. Sci-Fi Month is the perfect time to finally finish this trilogy off!

The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber: I've already started this one, I'm about a quarter of the way through it, and I'm really enjoying it so far, but then I put it aside so I could read some spooky books throughout October. I'm hoping to finish this one soon.

What are you reading this month?


  1. Fantastic list, as always Jess! I hope that you enjoy the next book these authors release! :-) I so agree with you about What We Left Behind.

  2. Some of these I've not heard of, but the ones I have I REALLY want to read :D Although in the case of Blackout and Winter, I need to read the preceeding books...

    1. I honestly can't recommend Newsflesh and The Lunar Chronicles enough - they're both fantastic!

  3. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet does look good. And I've heard good things about Bitch Planet too...

    1. I've been hearing nothing but brilliant things about The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, so I'm looking forward to it. :)
