2017 Sci-Fi Challenges – One of My Own and 2 Hosted by Another

If you saw my 2017 bookish resolutions post, you’ll remember that I said I’m going to read a ton of sci-fi this year. I’m excited! I’m happy to have a vague excuse to read so much of my favorite genre.

So, I’ve decided to keep track of my challenges with this post.
I’ll be updating this as the year progresses, and I finish books.

Women of Sci-Fi

This is a challenge I decided to create on my own to add a bit of diversity into the other sci-fi challenges I’m going to be working through.

If you would like to participate with me, please do!
Feel free to comment on this post after you finish a book, add me on Goodreads and discuss there. I can definitely create a group if you’re interested! Or follow me on Instagram and feel free to DM me any time about any book. Same goes for Tumblr. All links can be found below.

This challenge is 17 books, which turns out to be a little more than a book a month. If you want to participate feel free to read as many or as few as you want. I’ll be reading these in order and will be crossing them off as I finish them, so feel free to discuss any I’ve finished or am currently reading with me!
