Book Tag |Sci-Fi Month Part 1

So, I know it’s now Friday and not Thursday but I am honestly so behind on everything this week, so play along with me and pretend it’s still Thursday? As its Sci-Fi Month, I wanted to do a Sci-Fi inspired book tag but couldn’t find one that I liked.

The prompts are by the wonderful imyril and deargeekplace
