January 2nd is National Science Fiction Day! To celebrate, I have put together a list of twelve of my favorite sci-fi reads.
12 Of My Favorite Science Fiction Reads
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
This will always be one of my favorite classics.
The Fireman by Joe Hill
The idea of the Dragonscale (and later learning how it travels to infect the hosts) absolutely fascinated me. The writing style was fantastic. Many times throughout the story (and right up until the very end!) I felt myself getting wicked anxious. No matter what was going on, I needed to read on to see what happened next.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
I LOVED this book! The characters were wonderful, the storyline was interesting, and the casual interruption to have the Hitchhikers Guide narrate to teach you more about the galaxy was perfect.
The Limpet Syndrome by Tony Moyle
The author told me that, “The Limpet Syndrome doesn’t really have a natural ‘wheelhouse’ but sits in everyone’s ‘odd space’ that most of us have!” And I 100% agree. I would very highly recommend this book to those that don’t mind reads that are a bit strange!
The Martian by Andy Weir
This book was incredible! If I were asked to describe the book, I would just say that it had a Michael Crichton storyline, a dash of Stephen King suspense, and a ton of sarcasm and humor. So clearly this book was 100% in my wheelhouse!
Prey by Michael Crichton
This book was required reading in one of my high school classes. It was the first Crichton book I read, and it started my obsession with his work.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This book was fantastic! I was immediately hooked and had a very hard time putting it down. This CNN review nails it: “An addictive read…part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance and all heart.” —CNN.com
Sapient by Jerry Kaczmarowski
There is just something so intriguing to me about medical thrillers! I had so much fun reading this book! Right from page one I was drawn in and couldn’t wait to see what happened next.
Under the Dome by Stephen King
LOVE THIS BOOK. Unfortunately I saw the movie before reading the book…so I knew how it was going to end. But I was still hanging off every word! I had such a hard time putting the book down. It was an absolutely amazing read. I love R’s character!!
Thanks for reading!
