Good Morning everyone! It has been so stinkin’ long since I have participated in a Top 5/10 Tuesday so I thought it would be fun to revisit a prompt I missed from a few weeks ago that I love!
For those of you that are unaware, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish, where book bloggers get to highlight their top 10 choices for the topic that the lovely people at B&B choose for the week. Yes, the meme is supposed to be Top 10, and yes, I only do 5. WHAT ABOUT IT?
So, today the Top 5 prompt I wanted to revisit is: 5 most recent books from X genre that you have recently added to your TBR! A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of my sci-fi section of my bookshelf on Instagram, which I am immensely proud of. But then I realized that for being one of my favorite genres, I definitely needed to add some more books to this collection. Let’s get to it!
- The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet – Becky Chambers
- Probably the most (and highest) recommended books by the bookstagram community, this recommendation usually was accompanied by the incredulous “You haven’t read The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet yet?!” Hence, here we are.
- Dragon Teeth – Michael Crichton
- I am not sure why I do this to myself, but for some reason I am also looking for a book that will bring back the awesomeness that Jurassic Park created. But here’s the thing: that book doesn’t exist. I am halfway through Dragon Teeth, and it’s just.. meh.
- Unearthed – Amie Kaufman
- Not really sure what this is about, but hey it looks awesome! And its written by one of the co-creators of Illuminae, and I freaking loved that book.
- Renegades – Marissa Meyer
- This book doesn’t come out until November 2017, but I am so excited for it! There are definitely not enough super hero type books out in the book universe, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this one!
- Seveneyes – Neal Stephenson
- Sometimes I think back to how amazing The Martian by Andy Weir was, and I wish I could read that book for the first time again. So, instead of wishing for something that I can’t have, I googled: “books to read after The Martian” (creative I know.) Seveneyes comes highly recommended in the sci-fi community, and I am looking forward to seeing if it can compare!
- Defy the Stars – Claudia Gray
- Bonus Round!!! I already own Defy the Stars, and it sounds amazing! (Also it has really good reviews on Goodreads.) I think going back and forth between YA sci-fi and adult sci-fi so I hope this one lives up to its reviews.
If anyone has any awesome sci-fi recommendations for me, I would love to hear them! I am always looking to expand on my collection and find new favorites. (And of course, I have some pretty great recommendations too if you need them, just let me know!)
