  • Sci-fi TBRorange and blue rocketship on a black background covered in stars

    January is apparently known as National Book Month! January 2nd is National Sci-fi Day. So I've decided to combine the 2 and recommend you some awesome Sci-fi reads for your 2019 "To Be Read" list. I've never really been into sci-fi, but for 2019 I think my resolution should be to branch out and read a little bit out of my comfort zone. I promise to read at least one of these sci-fi books in 2019.
