[Today I was spotlighted on Aunti Spinelli Reads. Check it out!]
To celebrate my six months of blogging I wanted to look back and highlight the ‘best of’ the past six months.
Best of: Science Fiction
I love Science Fiction books, especially ones that are set in space! I find space interesting and scary at the same time, yet the possibilities are mind boggling!
Is the universe ever expanding? Or is it shrinking? Is it looped? Or is there more than one universe out there? There has to be other beings out there, somewhere. Space is HUGE! There are so many questions I find myself pondering when I look up to the night sky. Sometimes I wonder if the star I’m looking at is actually dead now, if it collapsed in on its self, or maybe it’s a galaxy that holds something else. I find space beautiful yet terrifying.
Of all the Science Fiction books I’ve read the past six months (Which honestly isn’t many at all :() my favourites have been:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
A Million Suns by Beth Revis
I loved the concept of Across the Universe (And the space-y covers!), I thought it was cool and interesting. A girl wakes up too early on a spaceship that is heading to their new planet? Ohh so exciting! I enjoyed A Million Suns more than Across the Universe though, I think that was because everything was already set so it launched right into the story and had me holding on till the end.
Cinder by Marrisa Meyer
I loved Cinder! Especially since I also love Cinderella so it was bringing my favourite fairy tale and my favourite genre/s (I also love dystopian) together and that was just awesome! Cinderella a cyborg?! How ever could a prince love a cyborg? Not to mention the Lunar. Oh wait. I just did. Where are the Lunar’s? The Moon. Awesome.
Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh
I really liked Whispers of Autumn because of the concept more than the actual story. It was a really enjoyable story but perhaps not the most entertaining. I liked the idea of aliens invading earth and taking control of everyone, but I liked it a whole lot more with the seasonal elements thrown in and how Althea always transports to a different family when the season’s change yet each of those families never notice when she’s gone.
Have you read these books? What did you think of them?
Can you recommend any other Science Fiction books that are set in space?
I would love to hear of them!
