Top 10 Futuristic Books I Love

There are so many great YA science fiction books out there right now that I had to do my part in promoting the awesomeness available!

Top 10 Futuristic Books I Love

A Darker Shade top ten series i want to start


1. Cinder– This series has several great futuristic settings – New Beijing, Luna, and various space ships. I LOVED how the author imagined a futuristic Earth, not to mention a city on the moon.

2. A Darker Shade of Magic– The imagination in this book blew me AWAY. There are 4 different Londons in alternate times that are layered on top of each other. AMAZING.

3. Starflight– Give me a rag tag group of misfits anytime, anywhere and I will adore them. Put them on a space ship to foreign planets, and I’m in LOVE.

4. These Broken Stars– This is science fiction gold. I LOVED this book and its planets being terraformed and its epic romance.

5. Illuminae– I don’t even want to say too much about this book except that you should read it!

6. Ready Player One– I really enjoyed the computer simulation style setting of this book – it felt scarily realistic.

7. Stitching Snow & Spinning Starlight– These books reimagined classic fairytales (Snow White & The Wild Swans) into new futuristic stories. They were original while incorporating the best parts of their source inspiration.

8. Passenger– I hope to one day live in a world where I can travel in space and time via a super cool pirate ship, so Passenger was sort of creating the dream 😉

9. Alienated– If in the future hot aliens come down to be delegates for their county, I don’t think a lot of teen girls will complain…

10. Uninvited– Despite a terrible sequel I would NEVER recommend, this first book was amazing. It’s basically the YA version of Minority Report, where teens discover whether they were born with the kill gene…SO GOOD.

What are your favorite futuristic books?
