Goodreads (May) Monthly Challenge- SciFi Fantasy Theme

Sci Fi Fantasy- May Monthly Reading Challenge on Goodreads, Aussie Readers Group.


I have joined the May Monthly Challenge with the Aussie Readers group on Goodreads. The challenge is to read science fiction and fantasy titles during this month in celebration of The Aurealis Awards presented by HarperVoyager – Gala Awards Ceremony – 21 May 2011.

The Aurealis Awards, are for works of speculative fiction written by an Australian citizen, or permanent resident, and published for the first time between 1 November 2009 and 31 December 2010.

Secret Ones (Dream of Asarlai #1)

I tend to read quite a lot of fantasy novels so this shouldn’t be too much of a ‘challenge’ for me. However, I don’t read much science fiction so I thought this month is a good opportunity to expand my reading repertoire!

I recently picked up Secret Ones and Power Unbound, scifi novels written by Australian author Nicole Murphy. I haven’t heard of this author before but picked these titles up in the local closing down book store sales and thought I would give it a go!

Want to join the challenge but don’t know what to read? (Here’s my plug…) Why not add my new YA fantasy romance novel A Season Of Transformation to your ‘to be read’ list? It’s available for download at GoodreadsAmazon and Lulu.

A Season Of TransformationSynopsis:

A Season of Transformation is a young adult fantasy/ romance novel set in the contemporary world. It is the story of five young people drawn together to complete a Quest, to protect their town from destruction. In order to defeat the story’s villain, Maxvale, the five virtual strangers must come together and not only forge a bond of trust but become proficient with the ‘abilities’ temporarily bestowed upon them.
In the midst of the lead up to the battle each of the young people has their own personal struggles they are trying to deal with. Lucas, an adopted and bitter teenager struggles to become the person he wants to be whilst developing feelings for Makenna, a rich kid who doesn’t like his attitude. Bonnie is a ‘gothic’ that is dealing with an alcoholic father, Ben the school nerd and Adam the class clown are trying to break free from their high school stereotypes. Can these five teens put their differences aside to defeat Maxvale and save their town?
