Sci-Fi Books I Recommend – 3 Stars and Up

We are already nearing the end of November and with that the end of Sci-Fi Month. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve had fun thinking up ideas for this month and most likely (as this was scheduled in a while ago) I have really enjoyed seeing what everyone else has to share about sci-fi.

For the most part I am a big fantasy reader but on occasion I do like to jump into sci-fi books. I decided to share a list of sci-fi books I’ve read so far that I really enjoyed. These were all 3 stars and up. They fall in varying categories like dystopia, space travel, super heroes and so on.

  1. I should definitely read some more sci-fi, as I don’t pick it up often enough. I did love The Lunar Chronicles, but hope to pick up the Timekeeper series, Sidekick Squad series and Wayfarers series soon!

  2. Bracken and Lu are two I want to try (technically I’ve started reading Lu, since I read Warcross) but I want to read those more dystopian type ones too. The Themis Files books have such amazing covers, too!
