When it comes down to it I have a staggering list of backlist books I’d like to get to. You all know this. I’m not even talking about the ones on my shelves… As it stands it is just hard to keep up with all the books being published by favorite authors, in favorite genres, with favorite topics. So of course Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) has to get us to make a list on that.
As it is sci-fi month I am of course changing things around so it can fit for that, and so I am only focusing on backlist sci-fi books.
1 Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
I’ll be honest and saw I am going to wait here until the bind-up of these novella’s are going to release, which should be next year. I also own two of her other books and I really need to get on them.
2 Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
Overal I don’t very often see this book around or mentioned but what I have heard of it sounds pretty great!
3 Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I’ve owned this trilogy for a while now and I swear, next year, I am totally reading it!
4 The City & the City by China Mieville
This is one of those books I tend to just toe around, knowing I’ll probably like it but that I am also just really intimidated by.
5 Blood Red Road by Moira Young
This is one of those dystopian YA series that doesn’t get mentioned that much. It kind of got delved under by all the other ya dystopian coming out arund the same time. But I’ve heard good things. About the first book anyway haha.
6 Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams
I’ve obviously read Hitchhiker’s Guide. But I’ve had my eye on this one for a while too. I’m interested to see if I’d like this too.
7 Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
I read Illuminae a while ago but haven’t picked up this one yet. I do want to read it though. Some day…
8 Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
I really do need to read something by Amie Kaufman soon…
9 Avalon by Mindee Arnett
This one just sounds very interesting. Also that cover is epic.
10 The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland
When I was younger I wanted to write about deparments that tackled different kinds of supernatural bits and beings. That never happened of course but that is what draws me to this so much.
