I am going through Bookish Games withdrawal, I'm thinking? I keep thinking I need to log in and check how much time is left, or who's voting for whom lol. But it also means I have time to, like, you know read and whatnot.   

The read-a-long for The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet is underway for SciFi Month. The first chat on Twitter is this Sunday. And SciFi Month has had a ton of awesome posts so far- you can find the master list here. #RRSciFiMonth on Twitter.

This past week I took a look at Scooby Apocalypse Vol. 1 - and loved it! I'll be reviewing the next few volumes as well at some point. And next week will be my review for The Similars. I've also got The Cheerleaders coming as well. And I'm still trying to get a Movies That Suck post ready to go. Soon...

  2. No idea it was SciFi Month, but that's pretty cool, and a great way to celebrate all the Netflix movies and books that are out there. Enjoy and Happy Weekend Greg! Hugs...RO

  10. I need to catch up on Kara Thomas' books. I loved her debut, and bought her second book, but have yet to read it. The Cheerleaders looks great, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  11. The Scooby GN sounds fun! I didn't used to like pixel art, but I feel like it's growing on me. I really like the bonfire one especially!

    1. The Scooby was fun! I highly recommend it- and yes sometimes I like the pixel art too just depends on the piece I guess.

  12. Speaking of "bookish games", do you know the Chapters game app? Check it out if you haven't.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yay, I love pixel art! Not sure what was the inspiration behind the one with the city, but it totally reminded me of the old trailer towers of Ready Player One. And I love the Harley Quinn art too. How timely, I just started the Mad Love novel about her life.

    1. I'm starting to be really fond of it as well! And yes I immediately thought of RPO when I saw it too!

  14. I agree- I was so SAD that I wasn't going to be able to play anymore but then... neither were the rest of you 😂 I hope these Townies learned their lesson of what happens when you kill Shannon. (I love how the only mafia who voted for me was Jade, at the last minute too hahha. The townies did the work for you and we high key deserved to lose.)

    Now, I must go move to the Shore picture, and stay there forever and ever because it is perfect.

    1. Such an abrupt ending- but yes we have the Townies to thank! Haha mafia didn't have to do much this time around. Oh and I might have voted for you- I was just being nice. :)

  30. Scooby Apocalypse looks interesting. I was Velma for Halloween this year. Lol. The Similars also looks intriguing. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeay for having some quality reading time! I'm seeing lots of people enjoying SciFi reading month and I wish you all luck. I'm not a huge SciFi fan so I'm going to enjoy the HoHoHo Readathon instead and enjoy lots of festive reads. :)

  32. Sorry for your withdrawal. Hope you find some great books to read to fill the gap for you. :-)

  35. Loving the Snake Plissken gifs.

    In terms of RPGs--looting is the best part. LOL

  36. It's a Sci-Fi Month and nobody told me?! *gasp*
    I hope you like Long Way- I enjoyed it, although the second and third novels each have a slightly different feel to them. I can also (always) recommend The Expanse series (start with Leviathan Wakes). And enjoy the other reads!
    Also, yes to Bookish Games withdrawal....I've been dragging my feet on answering the poll about improving it because I don't want to admit it's over, even though we won and you were frighteningly good at keeping up an "aw, shucks" townie exterior. :D

  37. Love the picture of Rivendell! I'm glad you're having fun with SciFi Month. Maybe some year I'll join in. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope you do get to the Movie that Sucks this week. I do love them. After seeing Strange New Girl on here week after week. I decided to get the audio book to start this series. Have a wonderful week Greg!

  39. Aha games withdrawal, isn't it funny, sometimes we are provided with time to read and we don't quite settle to it!

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's funny that your having bookish game withdrawals at least that means you really liked it. :)

    As I write this it's SNOWING here! :( We are not supposed to be having snow yet so this makes me nervous for winter! :(

    Have a great week!

  41. I started reading The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet on your recommendation and I just love it. I'm at 90% now and I hope to finish today. I didn't participate in the Twitter chat (I don't really do Twitter) but I hope to have it up in my Book Chat soon. Such a fun book! I don't want it to end.

  42. talking scifi, I just watched Galaxy Quest, so good. And I also finally my favorite audiobook of all times, Ready Player One. and it's actually so good, I liked it as much as the book. I had forgotten that the awesome narrator Wil Wheaton had also narrated Armada by Ernest Cline. I loved the (written) book, so I'm going to listen to the audiobook now.

  43. SciFi month is always fun to read about. I always get lots of good suggestions to improve my SciFi reading list. Love the pulp fiction cover as usual. I kind of wish covers would go back to that over the top look. They're way more fun. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Cheerleaders is on my wishlist. I'll be eager to hear what you think of it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I so wish I can join in the fun. Alas, I'm rarely on Twitter, so no dice. But I'm sure you'll be writing a recap. :)

  46. I really need to read The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet. I’ve heard so many good things about it. I love that picture with the hyenas on leashes. It’s very detailed and kind of scary. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    ReplyDelete
  47. LOL!! Good luck with the withdrawal Greg. And I do hope you're enjoying your reading time. ;)
    Happy Reading!

  48. You always have the best pictures. I love Scifi and need to look into that for next year. Is there such a thing as Christmas Scifi? I have too many romances for HoHoHoRAT - I need some other genres. I like romance but in small doses. Anne - Books of My Heart

  49. I've definitely had my eyes on The Similars. Happy reading!

  50. I can't believe November is half over. I am not ready! I hope you are enjoying your reads. I love the idea of Sci Fi month and one of these years I will take part. Have a great weekend and Thanksgiving, Greg!
