The 2017 Science Fiction Reading Challenge Halfway Point Check In!

If you’re just joining us, here’s a link to the original post that explains all about the challenges. (Sign-ups are open until Aug 1!)

We’ve hit the 6 month point for 2017, and I still feel like I blink and another month goes by. It’s a bit insane! There’s been lots of good books read for both challenges (though I admit I’m a bit behind in my science fiction challenge!)

If the linky acts up on you, feel free to leave your entries in a comment.
