Just Briefly About Me

Okay, a repost from last year but for those of you who are new to my blog and don’t know much about me: I’m Lianne *waves* and I pretty much grew up watching science fiction (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 (if you haven’t watched this show yet, you really must, it’s an excellent tv show; see my post on why you should watch it), Quantum Leap, etc). I only got around to reading the classic science fiction titles more recently but I do enjoy the genre; some of my favourite science fiction novels include Frank Herbert’s Dune (review), Douglas Adams The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and more recently Rachel Bach’s Paradox trilogy (see tag).

You can view all the posts I’ve made for previous Sci-fi Months in this tag and all of my science fiction-related posts in this tag πŸ™‚

And that’s about it for this introductions post! I had initially planned on finishing up reading the Dune novels for review but I’ve just been so busy this year that reading has just been slower for me amongst other activities >_< Anyhow, you can also follow the event month-long on Twitter via the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth or the Twitter account @SciFiMonth. I hope you enjoy the reviews I’ll be posting throughout this month! πŸ™‚
