It is the end of November, and with that sadly comes the end of Sci-Fi Month! It’s been a fantastic month of posts, and today I want to chat about what’s gone on throughout the event. I’ve also got a giveaway at the end for all bloggers (and authors, if they wish!) who took part in the month. Don’t forget to check out the schedule for the rest of today’s posts. You can also Tweet about the event using the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth.
I thought I’d share some statistics about the event. There has been a total of 300 posts as of 3.30pm GMT today – amazing – and there are still a few more to come! We’ve had discussions, reviews, author interviews, guest posts, giveaways, top tens and lists and more. If you want to view the past month’s posts by type, you can do so here.

How AMAZING is this?! This was how I described the event when I was planning it:
A whole month dedicated to science fiction, which I believe to be one of the less covered genres in the book blogging community. I want to bring fans of sci-fi together to celebrate it by posting about the things they love, as well as get some people interested in the genre.
And I believe that, with the help of all the wonderful participants and readers, we succeeded! For example, Jorie found a love for Doctor Who:
Ara put together a list of science fiction books she’d like to read next year, inspired by the event.
Andrea has a brilliant list of ‘gateway’ science fiction books for new fans.
Sana was also persuaded to watch the show because of Sci-Fi Month!
Leanne came up with not one, but two new regular feature ideas because of the event – and I can’t wait to see them continue well after November.
We also had some fun and games! Kelley shared several awesome puzzles and a quiz, and Leanne made a Sci-Fi Bingo Challenge which many bloggers have joined in with. KJ posted a great game, where the reader guesses the book title by a few keywords – it’s pretty challenging!
Some Twitter highlights…
Tor tweeted about the event!
Andrea posted about her Vintage Sci-Fi Challenge for next year – go and sign up!
We had authors retweeting the event!
And another publisher!
