Wrapping Up the Sci Fi Experience for 2013

13sfexpIs February over already?  I don’t know about you, but January lasted forever and then I blinked and February was gone.  That means it’s time to bid farewell to another year of the Sci Fi Experience, hosted by Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings.

I’ve had an excellent time in sci fi reading over the last two months.  I started out with a big stack, and have read my way through nearly all of it.  I dropped a couple of titles from my plans (one Trek book, after looking more closely at the writing, and one Pellucidar book when I realized it was later in the series than I thought) and I have one unread Star Trek book still sitting on my shelf and patiently waiting its turn.  But other than that…  Well, here’s the full list with links to reviews:

P1020254Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey (reread) – Group Read, Week One and Week Two

At the Earth’s Core and Pellucidar by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card

Star Trek
Federation by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens (reread)
The Abode of Life by Lee Corey

Star Wars: The Callista Trilogy
Children of the Jedi by Barbara Hambly
Darksaber by Kevin J. Anderson
Planet of Twilight by Barbara Hambly

I also got some Sci Fi on Screen viewing in.

I’m a bit sad to wrap up the Sci Fi…but mostly I’m looking forward to diving into some fantasy!  And I have no doubt I’ll be continuing to read more science fiction anyway…if only because I added so many titles to my To Be Read list throughout the Experience. 🙂

    Cheryl, I had a wonderful time participating in this year’s “experience” as well. I also added quite a few books to my TBR pile as a result too. I didn’t read as many books as I planned, but there’s always next year, right?

  2. I’m glad you were able to get so much sf reading done during the Experience. It was fun to host again and to participate as well. Really nice to see someone reading Star Trek and Star Wars books as they make me feel very nostalgic. Both shows have been a part of my life for a long time and I enjoy dipping in to the printed works once in awhile to rekindle those memories.

    Feb. did fly by, though slightly less quickly for me than normal because of having a couple of snow days that allowed me extra veg time.

    Looking forward to adding some fantasy reading in with my SF this month. I’m diving into some of the Nebula nominees which are predominately fantasy.
