SpaceTime Launch! Searching for a Science Fiction Reading Challenge? I have been for years. I find some with lists of classic or ‘new classic’ books to read, but I’ve either done those or rejected them for good reasons!
The answer? My own reading challenge: the SpaceTime Reading Challenge. #spacetimereads
How the SpaceTime Reading Challenge works
You choose your book, from any part of the science fiction genre universe – hard scifi, military, scifi romance, space opera, first contact, time travel, whatever. It’s up to you. You add the book to your list of books read, with a review, as short or long as you like. Make your own rules about ‘only Hugo winners’, or ‘only space opera’… as you wish.
- You can read any book that is from the science fiction/time-travel genres. Any sub-genres are welcome as long as they incorporate one of these genres.
- You don’t need a blog to participate but you do need a place to post your reviews (even one-liners) to link up. (blog, Goodreads, booklikes, LibraryThing, etc.)
- Make a goal post and link it back here with your goal for this challenge.
- Books need to be novellas or novels, please no short stories, although anthologies count if they meet the page guideline. (At least 100 pages +)
- Crossovers into other challenges are fine.
- The Challenge will be from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. Sign-up closes 30th November 2019.
