Top Ten Freebie: Blogger Choice
Since this weeks Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie, I figured I’d pick my favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy books. It’s so hard to put them in any particular order, so I’m just going to list them, but not number them.
Keeper of the Lost Cities: This is probably one of the cutest stories that I’ve read. The main character Sophie is absolutely adorable and I love the world that Shannon Messenger created. It’s one of my favorite Middle Grade reads!
The Lunar Chronicles: How could I not include these books. They’re sci-fi and fantasy in one, with just the right amount of humor and intensity.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone: Laini Taylor is one of my absolute favorite authors. Not only have I read this series, but also her MG one, which includes Blackbringer and Silksinger. Her writing is beautiful, imaginative, and just pulls me in. I can’t imagine not wanting to read whatever she’s written.
These Broken Stars: This is one of the few strictly sci-fi books I’ve read, and it was brilliant! Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman had me from the very beginning. I could put this book, or their second, down and hated when I reached the end. I hope to continue reading more from them.
Throne of Glass: This is one of my absolute favorite books and fantasy series. Sarah has done a great job of setting the stage, and slowly building the story. Reaching the end will be a sad, but happy day.
Unchanged: I just finished this book, the last in Jessica Brody’s Unremembered series. It was beautiful, intriguing, and exactly what a sci-fi book should be (at least in my opinion).
His Fair Assassin Series: This was a historical/fantasy series and Robin LaFevers did an amazing job with it. We got a little of both, and what fantasy was brought in, was handled so well. I loved her take and the fact that it wasn’t overly done or so out there that it couldn’t be believable.
Vicious: Again, V.E. Schwab was one of my favorite authors. I love her YA books, and I’m really loving her adult novels, including this one. It was dark, and gritty, and just… so good!
Brisingr: This was the second to last book in Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle series. I’m not really sure why, but it was my favorite of all four books. I mean, dragons… what’s not to love?
The Burning Sky: I was greatly surprised by this book. I loved everything, including the magic and the special book that the prince used (so cool!). Sherry really pulled me in and made me want to know more. I can’t wait to read book 2 and finally get my hands on the last book!
