Sci-Fi was my first real genre-love. Where I got my affinity for sci-fi I have no idea; my parents don’t read and my one sister that does read only reads realistic romance (though I have broadened her reading habits lately). But, yeah. Check out my list of sci-fi books I can’t believe I haven’t read yet. Comment on the one’s you’ve read or haven’t read, or leave a link to your TTT!
1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I really want to read this one because it reminds me of Virtual World, a book I read back in high school. OASIS is a virtual game with puzzles that will lead the gamers to fortunes, and for years no one finds one until Wade stumbles upon the first puzzle. Then players are ready to kill in real life for a chance at the prize.
2. The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells
Oh, I love the movie, but I haven’t read this one of H.G. Wells’ novels! It’s super creepy with a scientist doing experiments on live animals and creates these human-like creatures. I’ve got to get around to reading it.
3. The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner
I’ve seen the movie and it makes me want to start this series so much! I’m kinda sad that there’s only one girl in the entire bunch at first, but then again I’ve only seen the first movie so maybe that’s rectified in the following books.
4. Unwind (Unwind Dystology #1) by Neal Shusterman
Topics like this scare me, which is probably why I haven’t read it yet, but it fits my genre completely. Kids 13-18 years of age can be “unwound” for their organs. I think it’ll probably have some pretty thought provoking ideas about how far society will allow things to go.
5. Reader (Daughter of Time #1) by Erec Stebbins
Good aliens and bad aliens, a girl with super powers whom can travel through time and space, and also has the burden of saving the world on her shoulders. *sigh* I needed to start this series like, yesterday.
6. 14 by Peter Clines
This is more of a mystery than a science fiction, but it does have mutant cockroaches and other very science fiction elements. Each apartment has something very… unusual about it. Some are even locked door mysteries!
7. Feed (Newsflesh #1) by Mira Grant
Zombies! Not only zombies, but apparently there are bloggers out researching and found a few secrets behind the infected. Power to the bloggers!
8. Delirium (Delirium #1) by Lauren Oliver
This is a world were everyone has to take a cure for love when they turn eighteen, but with a few days to go before her treatment Lena falls in love. I’ve heard a few mixed reviews on this series, which is probably why I haven’t read it yet, but I still want to give it a try.
9. Hollow World by Michael J. Sullivan
Ellis has terminal cancer and decides to build a time machine in his garage to travel into the future 200 years to find the cure. Instead he travels 2,000 years and ends up in Hollow World. There are no wars or hardships, but it also lacks individuality. This book sounds like it has an added bonus of philosophy!
10. Reboot (Reboot #1) by Amy Tintera
This has been on my reading list forever. Wren is the perfect emotionless Reboot-solider, until she meets the nearly-human Callum. I really want to love this book, but it sounds like a book that you either love or hate; no middle ground.
