Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!
I’m super cheating this week since my mom reads my blog (hi!) and probably has already read some of these based on my pushing them on her >.>. She’s a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan who just doesn’t have as much time to read as I do, so this is for all you sci-fi/fantasy lovers who want to skip right to the awesome books! Also huge warning: A LOT of these are sequels because I love the sequel best, and therefore I think you should read the first books in order to read the sequel. Feel free to check with me if you’re not sure!
There has been so much good sci-fi the past two years!! Of course the Lunar Chronicles series is top of my list. Apparently this series isn’t as big with the rest of the world as with book bloggers?? This must be fixed! Bang is a sequel that I adored and makes the first book completely worth the read (it’s good, just not as good as Bang), though it’s only kind of sci-fi. Reboot should definitely be listened to since the narration is amazing! I quite enjoyed Pawn and found it to be a fun new direction for the dystopian genre. Finally, Above World is sci-fi mermaids and simply must be read!
Yes, I love middle grade fantasy all right! But a castle that moves (which I think I gave to my mom for her birthday already >.>) and pirates! Bitter Kingdom is the final book of the trilogy, but also my favorite, hehe. The Lies of Locke Lamora takes mischievous thieves and witty swearing to a whole new level! Finally, Shadow and Bone has a Russian-inspired fantasy setting and is such a unique magic system!
Who are you recommending books to this week??
