Sci Fi Experience and Vintage Sci Fi Participation

As I noted in my First Book of 2016 post, I decided to participate in two Sci Fi events that are going on right now.

The 2016 Sci-Fi Experience begins December 1st and runs through January 31st, 2016.
It is hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.
The Sci-Fi Experience will hopefully give people an opportunity to:
a) Continue their love affair with science fiction
b) Return to science fiction after an absence, or
c) Experience for the first time just how exhilarating science fiction can be.
Since I have been increasingly enjoying Sci Fi this past year, I fall into the a) category.

Here are Sci Fi books read (or reviewed) in December, 2015:
1. Audible Book Review: The Genuine Particle by Stephen Punt; Comedy, Radio Broadcast; my rating 4.25. (Not read in December but review posted.) 
2. Audible Book Review: Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld; Steampunk, Fantasy Adventure; my rating 4.5
3. Audio Book Review: Goon Squad, Vol. 2: Without Sin by Jonathan L. Howard; Sci Fi, Comic Storytelling; my rating 4.0. 
4. Book Review: Xenonauts: Crimson Dagger by Lee Stephen; Sci Fi, Fantasy; my rating 4.5.

Read in January, 2016:
5. Audible Book Reviews: Three X Minus One #VintageSciFi Stories; Vintage Sci Fi; my ratings 4.5, 4.25 and 4.25.
6. Audible Book Review and #Giveaway: Time Heist: Firstborn Saga Volume 1 by #Anthony Vicino; Sci Fi, Mystery; my rating 4.5.
7. Book Review: The Feral Sentence: Part One by G. C. Julien; Dystopian, Sci Fi; my rating 4.0.
8. Book Review: Brilliance (The Brilliance Trilogy Book 1) by Marcus Sakey; Sci Fi, Suspense Thriller; my rating 5.0.
9. Audible Book Review: To Live Forever by Jack Vance; Vintage Sci Fi; my rating 4.0.
10. Book Review: Steamborn (Steamborn Series) (Volume 1) by Eric R Asher; Sci Fi, Fantasy, Steampunk; my rating 4.25.
11. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein; (Review to be linked.)

I have several books already lined up for January, including some Vintage Sci Fi titles.

The Vintage SciFi Not-a-Challenge event is hosted by Andrea at Little Red Reviewer.

I am starting with these Vintage titles (the first three I listened to as First Book(s) of 2016); The review links are above under Sci Fi Experience:
1. X Minus One: Protective Mimicry (October 3, 1956) by Algis Budrys, Ernest Kinoy - adaptation
