Hello and welcome, dear reader! Ana here, back from hiatus, and I am participating in Sci-Fi Month 2015! Unlike last year, I don’t think I can come up with a whole month’s worth of science fiction content. :( But I sure am going to try to read and review more science fiction this month! :D So, let’s get this intro post started!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey! I’m Ana, and when I’m not scrambling to do and finish work (always chasing those deadlines!), I try to chill out through reading, watching YouTube videos, playing video games, or cooking/baking. This year, it seems that videos have taken the top spot for “things I do while chilling” because I usually do something like browse the internet while I do that.
BUT ANYWAY. As for books, I love fantasy, science fiction, and mysteries. However, I’ve noticed that I don’t actually have a lot of science fiction reviews on my blog. GASP! So this month, I’m hoping to try and read more sci-fi titles and enjoy new stories! :D
How long have you been a fan of science fiction?
I’ve always loved science and technology, and I find it so fascinating to learn more about the natural world and what we can create and invent! So I guess I’ve liked science fiction since I picked up a sci-fi book and realised that the book genre existed? :O I can’t remember my very first sci-fi book, but I do remember Artemis Fowl (Eoin Colfer) as probably my introduction to the book genre.
But I definitely remember science fiction cartoons when I was a wee one! :P Jonny Quest, anyone? Or perhaps The Jetsons?
Why do you like sci-fi and what is your favourite thing about it?
Like I said, I LOVE science and my favourite thing about sci-fi is seeing what we could make or invent. For me, reading science fiction is one big “what if” or a preview into what we could be making in the future. I mean, come on! Now we have technology that was just science fiction ages ago, so what’s tech going to be like years from now? Isn’t that just so exciting?! :D
Favourite books/games/films/TV shows in the genre?
Treasure Planet is such an underrated Disney film, I swear! The visuals are absolutely stunning, the characters are HILARIOUS (also, Captain Amelia? Totally awesome!), and the story is just so well-told through the lens of a futuristic space setting.
Yet another underrated Disney film, Atlantis! Okay so this may be more fantasy than sci-fi, but the Wiki says it’s science fiction and that’s good enough for me! See above for the reasons why I like this film, because of the characters, the story, the setting! I just love it, dear reader!
What are your plans for Sci-Fi Month?
This month, I plan to contribute through reviews of science fiction books and hopefully some discussions! ^_^ So I hope you join me in this, and let’s PARTY!
Are you joining in, dear reader? If this is your first time on the blog, HELLO! :D Hoping to meet some really cool bloggers this month!
