So… guess who’s back with another Star Trek Book Tag for SciFiMonth?
This is my way of participating in SciFiMonth from the sidelines because your girl is swamped and can’t fully participate as she would like.
This Star Trek Book Tag was created by booktuber Jay Dee Archer. He based the questions on the TV series.
Star Trek: The Original Series
A corny yet entertaining book
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy, illus. by Todd Harris
It’s a middle grade fantasy novel about the princes charming from fairytales. It was an entertaining read, but the humor was a little corny at times. Still, I enjoyed it and do intend to read the next book… whenever I get to it.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
A sequel that was better than the original
Wundersmith by Jessica Townsend
It’s the second novel in her Nevermoor series, a middle grade fantasy series about an unlucky girl who’s whisked away to a different world where she learns she’s special — and dangerous. I enjoy reading the books. The first one, Nevermoor, was very much in the vein of the Harry Potter books, but by Wundersmith I think the story starts to branch off into its own thing. The world really interests me, and I look forward to learning more about it as the story continues.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
A book or series with a great ensemble cast
To Night Owl From Dogfish by Holly Goldberg Sloan & Meg Wolitzer
This is a middle grade contemporary novel about two girls whose dads are dating, so they plot to break them up. The story is light and fun and is about friendship. It has strong Parent Trap vibes about it, since the girls meet for the first at a summer camp. I like how the cast of characters play off each other and that the story doesn’t end as I expected it to.
Star Trek: Voyager
A book or series involving an epic journey
Brightstorm: A Sky-Ship Adventure by Vashti Hardy, illus. by George Ermos
It’s a middle grade fantasy novel with some steampunk influences about a pair of orphaned fraternal twins who go off on a sky-ship adventure to the great unknown in South Polaris to learn what happened to their late father. It’s a fun, quick read about an epic journey where the twins learn a lot about themselves as well as their family.
Star Trek: Enterprise
A book or series with a bad ending
The High King by Lloyd Alexander
A classic middle grade fantasy novel that is the last in the Chronicles of Prydain series. The series begins with The Book of Three in which a farm boy tasked with caring for a prophetic pig tries to save the world from impending doom. I enjoyed the first couple books but didn’t like the last few. The High King I especially disliked but would like to reread it to see if I’ll have better luck with it now.
Star Trek: Discovery
Your most anticipated future release
Umm… I don’t have one.
And there ends this Star Trek Book Tag.
But stay tuned. Another one is coming.
Of course, if you want to do the tag too, go ahead.
