Follow Friday/Blog Hop (5) and Weekly Recap

Thursday, February 17, 2011



It's Follow Friday! Hosted by the always amazing Parajunkee's View, this is a chance to meet new blogger friends and grow our networks.

This week's question is "If you are a fan of Science Fiction what is your favorite book? If you haven't read Science Fiction before...any inkling to? Anything catch your eye??"

I haven't read a lot of sci-fi. I've had a hard time getting into it, particularly if it's heavier on the science end. I do really want to read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I suppose if you count steampunk as sci-fi (which I do), I did really like The Alchemy of Stone by Ekaterina Sedia.

Be sure to check out this week's featured blogger Dreaming About Other Worlds and the rest of the participants.



Book Blogger Hop

Hosted by Crazy For Books, this blog hop is all about connecting with our fellow bloggers. Each week we discuss a book-related question and hop around to other blogs to see their answers.

I'll post the question and answer for this week when the hop post goes live.

Keep hopping and following and I hope to see you soon!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not a fan of sci-fi, either. Especially the science aspect.

Have an awesome weekend. :]

A lot of sci-fi isn't as accessible as the current crop of YA fantasy although if you get into the popular dystopian books now, those are generally all sci-fi~~

Thanks for hopping by my blog! I'm your newest stalker :D

Haven't read Ender's Game or The Alchemy of the Stone, but you've put them both on my radar now. And I can't wait to see what you think of Across the Universe whenever you get around to reading it! Awesome book.

The Hitchiker's Guide movie wasn't that bad, but the books are better.

I have been wanting to read Across The Universe badly but other than that hadn't seen many that have peeked my interest.

I have so many favorites: Vernor Vinge's Deepness in the Sky and James Blish's Cities in Flight are oldies but ever goodies. Lois McMaster Bujold's series The Vorkosigan Saga is fabulous. I don't much like super high tech, but Dave Weber's Honor Harrington series showcases a woman space commander in a well-conceived universe. The military action is great and I just skip the descriptions of the technology of space ships.

I'd heard of Ender's Game but didn't know what it was about. It sounds pretty epic! I also want to read Orson's book Pathfinder, sounds pretty interesting.
