Top Ten Books If You Are In The Mood For Something Sci-Fi

Lauren here... so I might have hijacked this week's Top Ten Tuesday post, but I just had to spread some Sci-Fi love this week. The following novels are not by any means my favorite Sci-Fi books of all time, nor are they ranked. They are simply novels I think anyone who is in the mood for something a little outside of the normal might enjoy. So... enjoy.



Vicious by V.E. Schwab


Loosed Upon the World: The Saga Anthology of Climate Fiction by Margaret Atwood, Paolo Bacigalupi, and many more 

Wool by Hugh Howey


The Passage by Justin Cronin


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


Pure by Julianna Baggott
   
Genesis by Bernard Beckett

The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell

The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

Tin Star by Cecil Castellucci



Hit us with some of your favorite Sci-Fi books!!

  1. Some really great picks in your sci-fi list. I've got The Passage trilogy on my spring TBR and I've really wanted to read Get Ready Player One for a while now. Loosed Upon the World seems really intriguing. I'll have to add that one to my never ending list.

  4. It's funny, because I always thought I was more on the fantasy side of Sci-fi/Fantasy, but I've read and loved most of the books on your list and most of them are more sci-fi than fantasy. Need to go look up the ones on your list that I haven't heard about!

  6. I keep meaning to read The Girl With All the Gifts. I also am curious about The Passage trilogy since the last one is coming out (or may be out already). Thanks for hosting such a great meme.

  9. Sci-fi (and fantasy) was my childhood go-to genre, and I still read a lot of it. I especially liked Girl with All the Gifts. Such an interesting take on the story!

  14. I am reading V.E. Schwab's newest books right now. I am looking forward to backtracking to read VICIOUS before the year is out. Great list!

  15. Ready Player One is one of my personal faves.

  16. Ooh, what a great list! I loved The Passage, I can't wait for the third book in that trilogy to come out this spring. (If they don't push back the release date again, that is!) I couldn't get into Ready Player One last time I picked it up, but I might have to give it another shot. And I really want to read The Girl With All the Gifts--I've heard so many amazing things about it.

  17. I've read about 1/2 of your sci-fi picks, and am RE-READING Passage & The Twelve because when I saw that City of Mirrors was FINALLY coming out in June I was so excited I think I pee'd a little...

  18. Sadly, I don't regularly read Science fiction. In the past though I have loved The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and The Day of the Triffids.

  19. Loved yours - mine are much more predictable, although having looked around the link-up there are so many I wish that I'd included. How could I forget The Hitchhiker's Guide? Red Rising Trilogy?

    I LOVE The Girl With All The Gifts too :)

    Here's mine: http://coombecottagesandco.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/top-ten-books-if-you-are-in-mood-for.html

    It didn't seem to come up on the linky :(

  20. Also, kudos on the topic this week, as you can even see if you're in the mood to read the list based on what mood THEY picked! Very meta.

  21. Some of my favorite sci-fi books are Zodiac and Wandering Star by Romina Russell and The 5th Wave series.

  22. I haven't heard of many of these but I'm pretty curious about Vicious! I loved the Across the Universe trilogy, that was the first YA sci fi I read. And I really liked Stitching Snow too. I have Zodiac, the Starbound trilogy, Illuminae, and Lost Stars on my TBR. Getting more into sci fi these days!
