The Bookish Games roll on. We have now survived Three Days (well, some of us) and the intrigues are on. It is now the Night phase once more- when bad things happen. Actually when this goes live the Night phase will have ended, and Day Four will start on Saturday. Judging from Asti's cryptic tweet at @bookishgames there is something bad awaiting us in Day Four! May the odds be in our favor...

SciFi Month is coming! All of November will be a celebration of all things SF- hosted by Imyril at OneMore.org and Lisa at Dear Geek Place. I love SciFi Month and will be participating this year, again.  

Movies That Suck this past week was Night of the Comet. Maybe one of the more fun MtS shows I've seen. Thanks to everyone who commented- now go rent this for Halloween! I may or may not have another MtS post up by Halloween- we'll see. :) In the meantime I reviewed Echoes this past week, and I'll have a Cover Love post on Monday.

  1. I've never heard of Sci-Fi month. I'm more into fantasy sand romance myself but I hope you enjoy lots of sci-fi books.
    I have this large cloak perfect for red riding hood like your pictures. Unfortunately I don't really have anything to wear underneath like no dress so I'll probably not wear a costume this year.

    1. Fantasy counts! And haha sounds awesome- I think a Red Riding costume would be a lot of fun!

  2. Good luck with the games, Greg. And I could get lost in these pictures. The shark and the siren is amazing.

  3. The temperatures really dipped where I am this past week, which is probably why those tropical art pieces are looking so good to me right now, lol. I especially like that real-time strategy game looking one with the infinity pool! Also I can't wait for Sci-Fi Month!

  4. Sounds like things are getting intense in the Bookish Games! Ooh sci-fi month sounds fun! Not that I actually read *that* much sci-fi, despite being a SFF blog lol. Maybe I'll find some good books to add to my tbr! I like that weird skyline picture.

    1. They are! And ooh you should do SciFi Month- you'd have a lot of posts that qualify I'd think?

  5. I think I might just sign up for SF month this time! I have a few SF books that I want to get reading and this could be a good excuse to try and get motivated to reading them!

  6. I definitely love sci-fi movies/tv more than SF books for some reason. I might have to pick up something in Nov just for fun, though. Good luck in the games!

  12. I haven't read Sci-Fi in ages. Maybe I should give it a try again.

    Enjoy your week, and I love those images with wolves and Red Riding Hood?

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  15. Good luck with the night phase! I enjoyed your post about The Night of the Comet. :-) I hope you have a great week, Greg. Happy Reading!

  16. I never cared much for The Night of the Comet. I first watched on Showtime in the late 1980s when I was kid. I believe I read somewhere that the film was being remade.

  17. Greg your Bookish Game seems a lot of fun! I wonder what was awaiting you when you wrote these lines...Are you still alive now? LOL Happy Sunday! Sophie @bewareofthereader

  19. I was once a sci fi reader. Exclusively. I read everything I could find. Then I stopped and I haven't read any more sci fi in over thirty years!

    I don't know where to start to catch up.

  27. Hm... Sci fi month - I'm tempted to sign up, but right now so much is going on that I don't need another 'thing' to stress about. However, I shall be paying close attention to what everyone is reading and see if there's something I should be acquiring:). In the meantime, I hope you have a great week, Greg.

  30. I like the little red riding hood. So those bookish games are deceivers and murder people in the night? lol j/k Night of the Comet doesn't sound like something I'd enjoy. Thanks for the well wishes and I hope your day is enjoyed, fun and restful!

  31. I love Red and the wolf - I need a copy of that print. It's so awesome. I also really like that Hardcastle song. You are always introducing me to such great new-to-me music. Are you watching Riverdale this season. I watched the first 2 and so far so good. Still loving my Jughead!

  32. Ive never heard of Night of the comet! I'll have to check out the discussion.

  33. I simultaneously love and hate Bookish Games hahah. I am so cold at the moment, I am avoiding looking too closely at the snow pictures, and keeping my focus on ocean and desert!

    I still need to read your MtS post, I have had it open in a tab for... well, since whenever you posted it hah. (Blame Bookish Games again!) I might buy Echoes soon. But do I need more books, that is the real question? (Just kidding, the answer is "of course, always".)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I did not know November is Sci-Fi month. Sounds kinda cool. I don't read as much Sci-Fi as I should. I have be reading mostly YA. Have a wonderful week! I will have to come and check out your new MTS post. My favorite of all time of course!

  35. I love scifi so I will be watching your experience with it this month. I did that last year with HoHoHoRat and I'm participating this year. Observe, learn, plan and do it; that's how I roll. Anne - Books of My Heart

  36. I so need to read more sci-fi! I haven't in a while but I do enjoy them. November sounds like a good month to read at least one sci-fi book again. ;)

    Good luck with the games. Happy Reading!

  43. I'm learning to enjoy reading science fiction. But I don't think I read it often enough to feature it for a full month. See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh my gosh, Conan the Barbarian movie! I haven't watched those in years! I need to go back and enjoy the cheesiness of Arnold again I think. I always love the images you share. That first ocean one with the turtle, and then the one with the shark, so beautiful! Thanks for visiting my Sunday Post on Lisa Loves Literature earlier!
