Hello and happy Monday everyone! Since November is Sci-Fi Month, I really wanted to do some post about sci-fi, maybe some booktag or whatever but… but in October I didn’t plan a single thing, and November was upon me without notice (the gal of it, really!), and so I decided to at least share with you all some sci-fi books that I really really want to read, but that for the moment are just a mere wish. I won’t put in this post series that I have started, and I won’t put in there the books that are on my TBR for this month, but I would present you with a lot of titles. And I mean a lot!

The first two books, Rubicon and World Running Down aren’t even out yet, but I am not discriminating and the publication date is not relevant! Truth be told, there are a lot of new books that sound mighty intriguing, and that I discovered since November started, but these two are the two that talk to me the most, so here they are. For all the others I am going with my “backlist” and hope that showing them to you here will help me get some reading done! Then we have The First Sister and Iron Widow. Both of them sound intriguing, and I am just soooo curious!

The Traitor Baru Cormorant and In the Garden of Iden were on my TBR for years, and they are still here to be read. But I am not losing hope! Nightwatch On The Hinterlands is a book that intrigue me a lot (but to be honest, I have to read yet the first series by this author, and I have all the intentions to do it. I just need time!). And You Sexy Thing is mainly here because I find the title irresistible! But I have also read some good things about it, so it is not for the shallowest of the reasons!

Here we have two books that I am ashamed I haven’t read: Dune and Children of Time. I can’t believe that I haven’t read them!! But hey, maybe next year would be the right year for them! And then we have two books that I discovered thanks to the first edition of the SPSFC: Mazarine Blues and Bloodlines. I really hope to read them both pretty soon!

The Disasters was a book I put on my TBR and then promptly forgot. I am bad this way! The Genesis of Misery is the newest book in here, or so I think, and I am quite curious! August Kitko and The Mechas From Space and The Extractionist sound pretty promising, too, and I can’t wait to get to them (but hey! I know that the waiting would not be short… sigh!)

And these four are the last of the batch, but be warned that I could go on and on and on! But I think this is quite a long post as it is, so let’s finish here, with another walk of shame. I can’t believe I haven’t read these books! Too Like The Lightning was a book I was dying to read and still.. here we are. And I have to try out both Alastair Reynolds and Gareth L. Powell. I have never read these authors!! And last but not least, Scalzi. I read and loved on of his trilogy and since then I wanted to read other books by him but… with no luck whatsoever!!

So, that’s all for today! What do you think? Have you read these books? And which sci-fi books you are dying to start?? Let me know!

Happy reading!

    Wow great list Susy! I can highly recommend August Kitko, Nightwatch (which you can read without reading the first series) and You Sexy Thing. I can’t believe I haven’t read Children of Time either!

    I’ve read seven of these. And my advice is to drop everything and read… something else? All of these were really good (except maybe Stars and Bones, which was okay), but none of them blew my mind. Also, I think you need more scifi books on your TBR…

    That is an awesome list, indeed, and the last batch includes three of my favorite authors as well: Chasm City was my introduction to Alastair Reynolds, and I still remember it fondly; Gareth Powell is one of those writers one must absolutely keep on their radar; and Scalzi… well, you can never go wrong with Scalzi, and Redshirts is a TON of fun, so…. Happy reading! 🙂

    Gosh the covers of most of these are enough to make me abandon all the important things in life (*cough* exams, I AM OUT FOR YOUR BLOOD *cough*) AND DEVOUR THEM ALL IN MULTIPLE AFTERNOONS. Although, ESPECIALLY THE TRAITOR BARU book. THE FACE ON THE COVER LOOKS SO CREEPY AND FASCINATING, I NEED PLEASE. Iron widow has been on my tbr since possible eternities BUT FINGERS CROSSED WE BOTH GET TO THEM SOON AND FALL IN LOVE WITH ALL THE WORDS.
