Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 498 comments I'm getting minor surgery on the 17th and will be out of work for the rest of the week (and possibly longer) so woohoo for more reading time! Also SciFiJune is happening! I know I will be reading the Murderbot Diaries which will not count towards the yearly challenge as a new novella is coming out next year but WILL count for the readathon! :) As will The Expanse books since the final book comes out next year.

This is my TBR for SciFiJune:

@Elyse I hope everything is okay with you and the surgery goes smoothly! If the novella is a novella and not a main book then the series definetely counts for 2020! Novellas are included in the readathon but since some are optional they are not a must read.

@Ruthsic Another series! I heard great things about Forest of Souls so I hope you love it as much as people are saying they do.

In this case, the whole series is a series of novellas, all less than 200 pages, with just one full-length novel that came out this year.

Oh yeah I counted the Murderbot Diaries - they started off as a novella series (which itself is a complete arc tbh) which were still main books, and then there was a full-length novel this year.

Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 498 comments I've been doing really well reading this month so far and the books I'm on now are: Rogue Protocol (The Murderbot Diaries, #3) by Martha Wells Dune (Dune Chronicles, #1) by Frank Herbert Caliban's War (The Expanse, #2) by James S.A. Corey (audio)
I've added another sci-fi trilogy to my stack, the first I am re-reading starting tomorrow: Dove Arising (Dove Chronicles, #1) by Karen Bao Dove Exiled (Dove Chronicles, #2) by Karen Bao Dove Alight (Dove Chronicles, #3) by Karen Bao
My surgery is Wednesday and I'll be working my butt off Monday and Tuesday before I stop working for the week so I doubt I'll be getting much read for the beginning of the 'thon!

Happy reading everyone!
