Another year, another sci-fi month hosted by Rinn. This is my fourth year of participating in the event and I’m a day late with the introductory post but hey, at least it’s here. I remember I couldn’t participate to the extent that I wanted to last year so this year, I’m definitely making up for the slack.
Ultimate Nerd Party AKA Books
I’m already in the middle of several sci-fi books (please don’t ask how) which I would like to finish. But apart from those, I really want to catch up on comics. I’ll definitely be reading The Vision, Ms. Marvel, Paper Girls as well finally, finally catching up on The Wicked + The Divine. As for books that I’ve yet to start, I’ve quite a few to choose from but I really want to get around to reading The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid. I also plan to finally read Catalyst by SJ Kincaid as well as finish up my reread of Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness.
Reluctant Nerd Party AKA Movies
I haven’t been the biggest movie watcher this year and have watched a grand total of 8 (!) movies this year which I’m having a hard time believing. However, I do want to watch some movies before the year is over and as I mostly watch action movies anyway, it shouldn’t be that much of an effort.
I’ve been wanting to rewatch Mad Max: Fury Road for more than a year now so I hope to finally make time for that. I also want to watch Suicide Squad because of Viola Davis, Will Smith as well as these two gif sets. I’ll probably also rewatch Pacific Rim mainly because why not and because I’ve been wanting to make a gif set or two.
Enthusiastic Nerd Party AKA TV Shows
I vastly prefer TV shows to movies so I’m definitely going to watch way more of them. First up is The Flash, my current favorite, which I’m slowly rewatching along with watching the latest season. I also plan to finish Black Mirror which shouldn’t take long because of the number of total episodes and Young Justice even though I’m very nervous to and not ready for the show to be over. Supergirl does way more female villains than any other show so it’s definitely on the list. And lastly, finally start Westworld and Class.
Internet Nerd Party AKA Posts
Like always, I’ll at least do a few posts and hopefully a couple of reviews. I want to do at least one discussion post and a couple of lists posts. There’s already a top ten Tuesday coming up next week that I want to science up as well as a movies-related one later on in the month.
Are you participating in sci-fi month? Have any recommendations for me?
Avada Kedavra says
I am in the middle of reading Dark Matter too, but have put it aside to read something else. I am participating for the first time and really excited. Looking forward to reading your posts this month.
OMG really?! Most people I know couldn’t stop reading Dark Matter which is why I’m planning to read it on a day that I’m free. Eee yay, hope you have fun participating.
I think you will absolutely LOVE Small Angry Planet. I completely fell in love with it and it just makes me so happy even thinking about it. <3
I need to watch Class! Doctor Who + Patrick Ness? Errr, yes please!
Gaaah, yes that’s great to know!
Right?! I’m so happy such a show exists.
Dark Matter and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet are two that I’d like to get to this month as well. Both look great! And I’m curious about Vision and Paper Girls. And I need to see Suicide Squad!
Westworld is turning out to be pretty interesting, hope you enjoy!
The Vision is unlike any other superhero comics that I’ve read and I ended up enjoying it a lot. I simply loved Paper Girls.
I’m starting Westworld tonight and so excited!
Yay, I love your list of books to read! I’m glad Catalyst is on there. (Did you ever write the last recap? XD)
I really want to read Small Angry Planet! 8 need to get a copy soon.
The only thing you’re missing on this list is The Fold. ;P
LOL still writing it! I promise I’ll be done this week (which I also said last week, oops).
What subtle book pushing, haha.

I absolutely loved Suicide Squad, so I hope you enjoy it too 🙂 I’ve been wanting to watch Young Justice for a long time, but I’ve never gotten around to it for some reason. Good luck with your goals! 🙂
I’m going in with no expectations because the reviews for Suicide Squad haven’t been all that great. Still, I hope I at least enjoy the movie.
OMG you should definitely get on watching Young Justice! They finally announced a season 3 and I couldn’t be more excited.
YESSS TO DARK MATTER AND ALL THOSE COMICS! And mostly Catalyst!!!!! You better send updates for that one or else!
Still waiting for you to finish Seveneves so you can tell me whether it’s good LOLOLOL
Gaaah, I’m hoping to be done with the recap of Vortex (which I actually need for myself, haha) this week so I can start Catalyst on the weekend.
Hahaha same. I probably need to start Seveneves from the beginning now.
I couldn’t even help you with that if I wanted because I have absolutely no idea what happened in Vortex XD
(already put the series on my list of re-reads for 2017)
Take your time, I already bought way too many books lately anyway.
Lauren @ Always Me says
I definitely want to try watching Westworld and Class. 🙂
YES! Excellent choices.
Seems like everyone is talking about the long way to a small angry planet, i guess i need to read it!
That’s basically why I had to buy it!
