Sci-Fi Month 2021 - Sunday Funday: Week 3 Update

 
Happy Sunday Funday and welcome to my third weekly update for Sci-Fi Month 2021!  Sci-Fi Month is a month long celebration of all things sci-fi and it's hosted by Lisa @ Dear Geek Place and Imyril @ One More.  (Image credit: Photo by Liu Zishan on 123RF.com with a quote from Babylon's Ashes by James S.A. Corey). I can't believe Thanksgiving is almost here already.  It's been a good week!  Keep reading to see what I got up to since this time last week:

What I Watched This Week:


 ❋  
I'm now half way through Rugal (it's 16 episodes total) and it's pretty cool.  It's gone some places I totally wasn't expecting and those action scenes are really dang cool.  Plus, I really like the small moments with the team.  I'm really looking forward to how this is going to end.

What I Read This Week:

 ❋  
I'm not usually into military science fiction, but Dauntless (The Lost Fleet #1) by Jack Campbell was right up my alley.  A lot of this hinges on Captain Geary's voice as he readjusts to a world that he no longer recognizes.  Due to his actions a hundred years ago that were thought to end in his death, he was practically worshiped as a legendary hero in the present day, but really he's just another person who did the only thing he could.  I'm really looking forward to continuing this series with Fearless.

My review is also on Goodreads.


 ❋  
I've enjoyed the Oxford Time Travel series so far, but I'd say Blackout (All Clear #1) by Connie Willis is my least favorite of them so far. I do appreciate just how well researched this was but I wish I didn't already know as much about the time period going into the novel. I liked getting to know the characters, but some of the pacing felt off in the book. The opening and the end are great, but the middle is bogged down and it gets a little repetitive. Overall, though, I still enjoyed this novel even though it's not quiye as solid as previous installments and I'm looking forward to seeing what's up next in the second part of this story.

My review is also on Goodreads.


 ❋   
The Galaxy, and the Ground Within (Wayfarers #4) by Becky Chambers is absolutely delightful and exactly what I needed.  Actually, I think this is my favorite installment of the series, even more so than The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet which up until now had my favorite of them.  All of them are great, but this one really takes the cake.  It's easily one of my favorite 2021 releases.  As far as I'm concerned, the characters and the world-building are perfect.  On a similar note, the narrator of the audiobook edition Rachel Dulude expertly brings this story to life.  If you haven't tried this series, I can't recommend it enough.  I can't wait to read more from this author in the future.

My review is also on Goodreads.
