Top Ten All Time Favorite Books in SciFi


(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)



+ The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
My all time favorite series! If you haven’t read this yet: what are you still doing here? Go read it!

+ Legend by Marie Lu
I liked that it didn’t come with a new idea, but was still able to make me all excited and fascinated about this society.

+ Across the Universe by Beth Revis
A story on a spaceship! What else do you need?

+ Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
This one does not only have an interesting concept but is also very funny.

+ Gone by Michael Grant
Another favorite series of mine. (the end was so emotional!) Loaded with violence, these are action-packed novels with great character development.


+ The Maze Runner by James Dashner
(TRAILER COMING OUT IN A WEEK! *squeak*) One of my first and favorite series in this genre. I loved this idea and especially the second one was so thrilling that I read it in one sitting.

+ Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Video games, virtual world, geeks, pop culture, …. Just an overall awesome novel! (can’t wait for Armada to come out!)

+ Cinder by Marissa Meyer
My favorite retellings with the most adorable characters! 

+ BZRK by Michael Grant
Just as good as the Gone series, but more mind-blowing with its idea. Just read the last book and can now say that the series as a whole is awesome!

+ The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Alien invasion for the win! And tough, sarcastic characters that I loved.

  • Great TTT! I loved the Chaos Walking trilogy, Legend and The 5th Wave!
    I really want to read Across the Universe, Gone, The Maze Runner and Ready Player One. I’m currently reading Cinder. :)

    I need to lie down.

    But first!
    Under The Mountain’s Top Ten Dystopias

  • Great list but… I haven’t read a single one of those :O

  • I should really go read most of the books mentioned as I have them on my shelves. I have a signed copy of Across the Universe for earths sake. I have attempted reading the Maze Runner, but I couldn’t get into it, so I have to try it out again somewhere in the near future. Also Cinder is a highly recommended read, so I’ll have to get into that as well :)

  • if you like sci-fi, i recommend the Area 51 series by Bob Mayer

  • Great list! This is my fav genre!

  • I really need to finish Across The Universe, I’m so horrible at that. Also, need to read The Maze Runner before that comes out, I’m so excited about the movie, love the look of your blog as well, it’s gorgeous! Check ours out over @ Two Bookish Girls

  • Ready Player One war wirklich großartig und ich kann das nächste Buch auch kaum noch erwarten. Die Legend-Reihe zählt auch zu meinen Lieblingen und ich liiiiiebe die Trilogie von Beth Revis. Ich bin unheimlich gespannt auf ihr nächstes Buch :-)

    • Mal sehen wie lange wir noch darauf warten müssen, dass Beth Revis mal was neues raus bringt. Die schreibt ja schon ganz schön lange an ihrem mysteriösen Projekt rum :D

  • was was? Maze Runner Trailer O___O irgendwie ging das schon wieder komplett an mir vorbei XD mist… aber ich bin gespannt! \o/ wann kommt eigentlich endlich mal der 2. Teil zu the 5th wave? XD übrigens, bald gibts wieder Beth Revis Newsletter, weeehe da gibts diesmal keine Infos zum neuen Buch XD

    • Der zweite 5th Wave Teil kommt doch (so wie ALLE anderen Bücher auch) im September raus^^
      Ich rechne bei Beth Revis frühestens 2015 mit Neuigkeiten um nicht enttäuscht zu werden wenn es keine gibt XD

      • ich weiß nicht, ich hab ja kaum Vorbestellungen, deshalb krieg ich keine Flut an Büchern im September :p aber gut zu wissen…
        argh. ja besser ists sich keine Hoffnungen zu machen XD

  • Und mal wieder möchte ich so ungefähr die Hälfte der vorgestellten Bücher lesen ^^. Vor allem The 5th Wave, was immer noch auf dem SuB schmorrt, wie ich zu meiner Schande gestehen muss…
