Ten SciFi Books I’ve Added To My TBR List Lately

Top Ten Tuesday

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

My TBR is one hot mess because I love browsing Goodreads, Amazon etc for new books to read, both back- and frontlist-titles. and add books to my TBR list on a daily basis. Who cares that I’ll only have time for like 20% of them. To make it easier to choose books for today’s Top Ten Tuesday, I chose to make this part of SciFi November and only feature science fiction books.

 

Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas by various authors 
I became so excited when I saw that there is a new Doctor Who story collecting that matches the fairy tale retelling one.

Sanctuary by Caryn Lix
Aliens attacking a space station full of teenage criminals with powers? Sign me the hell up!

The Wanderers by Meg Howrey
This is about a group of astronauts in training for a mission to Mars. It’s not so much about the space travel and more about what it means for these people, like leaving their families. Definitely curious about this one.

All Systems Red by Martha Wells
The first book in a series called The Murderbot Diaries, and a story about a self-aware security droid. ALL I NEED TO KNOW REALLY.

All Our Wrong Yesterdays by Elan Mastai
A version of our 2016 but like people from the 1950s would have imagined it, time travel, alternate worlds. ALL THE GOOD STUFF.

The Disasters by M.K. England
About some teenagers in space who see themselves as failures, hence the title I guess, which amuses me.

The Refrigerator Monologues by Catherynne M. Valente
This is about women in superhero comics and I’ll be all over it once it comes out.

SW: Rogue One YA Novel by Beth Revis
I’m a huge fan of Revis’ Across the Universe series so I’m very excited that she is writing scifi again. And a SW story at that!

Touch by Claire North
I loved The Sudden Appearance of Hope, so not sure why I only discovered this recently but definitely a must-have.

Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton
I don’t trust books with less than 300 pages but I might make an exception for this one. Sounds like it’s less science-y and more about what it would be like if the world ended as in the usual literary fiction stuff!?
