TOP TEN TUESDAY: Favorite Books with a Futuristic Setting
Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.
FAVORITE BOOKS WITH A FUTURISTIC SETTING
1. The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins (Young Adult)
Nothing I can say about this series that hasn't already been said.
2. Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis (Young Adult)
Suspenseful and thought-provoking trilogy that takes place on a spaceship bound for an Earth-like planet.
3. Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth (Young Adult)
It isn't complete yet, but if Allegiant is anywhere near as good as its predecessors than this will definitely be one of my favorite series of all time.
4. Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer (Young Adult)
Fabulous sci-fi retellings that are full of complex characters thrilling action that still retain a fairy tale-esque quality.
5. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund (Young Adult)
Emotional retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion in a dystopian society.
6. Psy Changeling series by Nalini Singh (Adult)
Some of the best world building I've ever seen in a series about an alternate, futuristic world full of changelings, psy (humans with psychic powers), and humans.
7. In Death series by JD Robb (Adult)
Another favorite (but lengthy) series about Eve Dallas, a homicide detective in New York City (year 2058), and her sexy billionaire husband, Roarke.
8. The League series by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Adult)
I'm a bit behind on this series, but I still love the complexity of Kenyon's space world. Plus it is full of those tortured heroes that she is known for.
9. Games of Command by Linnea Sinclair (Adult)
A romance between a spaceship captain and a bio-cyborg who has been in love with her for years. Very emotional and entertaining!
10. Tales of the Underlight trilogy by Jax Garren (Adult)
Steampunk/futuristic retelling of Beauty and the Beast mixed with hot romance, creepy mythology, and political intrigue.
