I'm Joining the #SciFiSummer 2018 Readalong!

I've been absent (again) for a while, but I am popping back in to announce my goals for the annual Sci-Fi Summer reading challenge hosted by Rachelle of Fortified by Books. Below are the levels and rules:

Red Shirt – 1 to 5 books
Viper Pilot – 6 to 10 books
Jedi – 11 to 15 books
Time Lord – 16 or more books

"Any book of at least 100 pages that is classified as Science Fiction, including any Sci-Fi subgenres, qualifies for this challenge.  That means audiobooks, physical books, ebooks, library books, free books, other borrowed books, anthologies, and graphic novels are all acceptable options.  You may also count any Sci-Fi book that counts towards another reading challenge.  On June 21st, I’ll post the link up for your reviews, and it will stay open until September 28th."

For this year's challenge, I'm shooting for Viper Pilot (which I think I generally always shoot for, but given my reading rut this year, may in fact be a challenge). Here are some of the sci-fi reads that may be among my picks for this year's challenge:

The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin
I started reading this earlier this year but got into a bit of a funk and couldn't finish (2018 must be my funky year). The plot is basically a man's dreams becoming reality and the consequences of that.

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers
I picked this one up this year because the buzz is huge and the price was right. I hope I love it as much as everyone else seems to!

Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch #1) by Ann Leckie
This is another buzz book I've never gotten around to from the sci-fi genre, and I'm hoping it proves as amazing as its cover looks.

Which books are you looking forward to reading this summer?
