December TBR | Last Books of 2018

Book Tag |Sci-Fi Month Part 1

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. As Sci-Fi Month has a great photo prompt challenge going on for this month, I thought I would adapt it into a book tag so that a) I could do a book tag and b) because I keep forgetting to do a photo for each daily prompt!

The prompts are by the wonderful imyril and deargeekplace
