The Fantasy genre is set in a fictional world, uses magic or other supernatural elements, and tends to be speculative (i.e. What if vampires were real?).
The Science Fiction genre can be thought of as, "a genre of speculative fiction, typically dealing with imaginative concepts such as advanced science and technology, spaceflight, time travel, and extraterrestrial life."
To discuss the books we read, here are some guiding questions:
- What are you planning to read or have read for this month?
- Describe the elements of the book that make it a fantasy and/or science fiction read.
- Was it enjoyable?
- What rating would you give the book you read?
- Would you recommend it? To who?
