Hey everyone! I have another Top Ten Tuesday for you all this week, thanks to the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme has to do with the past or the future but basically as long as your topic is to do with one of those two themes, you can choose whatever you want as a topic. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been kind of stumped for this one, so I looked at other people’s posts to try and get some ideas and the topic I’ve chosen to do this week is Top Ten Futuristic Books I’m Looking Forward To Reading. I did think about doing my favourite futuristic books, since I read a lot of dystopia which is always in a futuristic setting, but since I have a lot of dystopia on my TBR which I’m looking forward to reading, I figured it would make a good list for this week! So here we go, the top ten futuristic books I’m looking forward to reading:
- The Darkest Minds-Alexandra Bracken-Ugh! This book has been on my TBR for so damn long and I still really want to read it, I just haven’t got around to it yet. I will read it eventually, I promise!
- The Young Elites-Marie Lu-I’ve heard some really good things about this one and it sounds amazing, so I’m really looking forward to reading it. I have this one on my shelf already, it’s just a case of getting the time to read it.
- The Fever Code-James Dashner-I have been promised answers! Answers about how the maze came about, answers to all my burning questions in this book, so you’d better bloody well deliver Dashner! I will not accept another Kill Order. I want a proper prequel this time!
- Unbound-Neal Shusterman-I am dying to dive back into the world of Unwind! I have missed it since finishing Undivided, so I am definitely looking forward to reading this book of short stories set in the Unwind universe.
- Wither-Lauren DeStefano-I’ve read some less than favourable reviews for this, but the premise utterly hooked me, so I’m willing to give it a try.
- The Jewel-Amy Ewing-The idea behind this one is kind of weird, rich women aren’t able to have kids, so use teenage girls with special powers as their surrogates, but ti also sounds kind of cool, so I’m quite looking forward to trying it.
- Only Ever Yours-Louise O’Neill-This one sounds so cool! I’ve heard such good things about it and it’s supposedly a very feminist novel, which obviously appeals to me, so I’m excited to read it.
- The Knife of Never Letting Go-Patrick Ness-I’ve had so many people telling me that I need to read a Patrick Ness book and I’ve had this one on my shelf for a while now, so I’m excited to read it and see what the big deal is with Patrick Ness!
- Cinder-Marissa Meyer-The Lunar Chronicles seems to appear on everyone’s TTT posts and there seems to be a lot of love for this series, so I am hoping to get to this one eventually and see what all the fuss is about.
- The Book of Ivy-Amy Engel-This one sounds really interesting and with a lot of political intrigue, so I’m really excited to read it.
- Dreamstrider-Lindsay Smith-The premise of this is so intriguing, people who can move around in other people’s dreams, so I’m really excited to read it and see if it’s as good as it sounds.
- Paper and Fire-Rachel Caine-The second book in the Great Library series, I loved the first one so much, so I’m really excited to see where the series goes from there.
That’s all I have for this week (yes I know I went over ten but it wasn’t by much!). What did everyone else choose for their past/future based topic this week? Any futuristic books that you could recommend to me? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s topic is a Valentines’ Day based freebie, so once again, you’ll have to wait and see what I come up with. In the meantime though, I will definitely have more posts up for you guys this week, so make sure you check those out!
