Sci-Fi Books you can’t pass!

Hello everybody and happy Monday! I hope your week has started in the best possible way. Today I am here to share with you some sci-fi books that I really loved. I have not always had the best relationship with this genre, but I managed to find something to love even there, so today I hope to share some love with you!

The Collapsing Empire was my first Scalzi’s book, and once I have read it I just had to go and finish the series, because it was amazing! I know that I would read other books by this author, because this trilogy was an amazing ride. Legion is not really sci-fi, strictly speaking, but it is tagged as such, and it is not really wrong-wrong, so here we are! I love Sanderson, even if I don’t read as many books of his as I wish (they are quite demanding. Amazing, brilliant and fantastic, yes. But they take time. And they weight a lot!) but this trilogy is really really short. But it is amazing. I loved it! And then we have Red Rising. I have finished the first trilogy, and loved it. I discovered it thanks to a blog tour, and I was quite skeptic because it didn’t seem like my cup of tea. But… oh how was I wrong! I loved these books with a passion! The author really knows how to hurt you, but he also knows how to create unforgettable characters! I have also read the fourth book, and loved it, but since I am reading this series in Italian I am here waiting for a translation of Dark Age. I really hope they would do it soon!

The Illuminae Files was astounding! I loved it, and I had so much fun with it! It may have set some high expectations for Aurora Rising and Lifelike, because I was expecting to love those series but something went amiss in there. Oh well! Altered Carbon was an interesting and captivating reading. To be honest I watched the TV show and then decided to read the book. And the book is really good, but I preferred the show. The thing is that I really really loved the show, so the book was somewhat less. But it is an amazing book, even if I am not so sure that I would continue the series. But in any case, this one is a book that deserves to be read! The Martian was a surprise. I read it because some friends were insisting on it and I became curious despite my complicate relationship with the genre. But it was so fun! I appreciated also Artemis, by the same author. I like his kind of humor, and even if the science part in there is important I loved them anyway!

I just had to add some classics to this list, and I think that I don’t have to say anything about all of them. Do Andorids Dream Of Electirc Sheep? was my first sci-fi book, or so I think. And I loved it. The other two were as amazing as that first, even if all three of them are really different from one another. But if you are in the mood for some classics, well, with these three you cannot go wrong!

And last but not least we have these three! Rise and Run was a happy discovery on NetGalley. I really don’t know why I requested this title, but I loved it! I think this book deserves some more love! Retribution Falls was a fun and highly entertaining reading. I had this book on my shelves for a really long time, because I bought it and then kept procrastinating, but once I started it I was completely fascinated! And at last the newest entry in there! Shards of Honor is the first book in a series I discovered this year, and it was an amazing reading! I am looking forward to the sequel, that I have on my TBR for this month, because the waiting is killing me!

What about you? What are the sci-fi books you would recommend to everyone? And have you read the ones I mentioned? Let me know!!!

Happy reading!

    What a great list!! The Martian is one of my favorites!

    for readers looking for a classic space opera, i’d suggest Dune by Frank Herbert
    for readers looking for something more contemporary, I’d recommend The Quantum Magician by Derek Kunsken, and Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee.

    I’m intrigued by your comment about Altered Carbon, because I watched only the first season of the TV show and, while finding it interesting enough, I was not totally captivated by it, so I wonder if the book(s) would fare better. I guess there is only one way to discover that… πŸ˜‰
