November was Sci-Fi Month, and, accordingly, my reading focus was nothing but science fiction. It was a month of big genre staples, with both Star Trek and Star Wars popping up in my TBR queue, time travel, futuristic cyberpunk action, giant space operas, and robot detectives. Some of these I liked more than others, frankly, but overall it was pretty satisfying experience.
This was easily the most deliberate, prolonged, and focused exploration I've made of some recent sci-fi titles, but there were also many that I had wanted to get to but couldn't due to time constraints. The good news is, I have plenty more books to dive into come 2017 and a few that will definitely be making their way to the top of my to-read pile for next year's month-long celebration. In the meantime, here's the skinny on what I read and reviewed for November's 2016 Sci-Fi Month.
