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.
