14 Sci-Fi Books I Read Since #SciFiMonth 2020 with Quotes | #TopTenTuesday 311

Yes hello and welcome to the first combo of Top Ten Tuesday with Sci-Fi Month this year for the rest of the month. As every year I am participating in sci-fi month as I declared yesterday. Instead of doing rec books for those that say they don’t like to read, I want to take a look at some of the sci-fi books I read since I last summed up some sci-fi books I read.

So let us go and portal into it.

“Luxury always comes at someone else’s expense. One of the many advantages of civilization is that one doesn’t generally have to see that, if one doesn’t wish. You’re free to enjoy its benefits without troubling your conscience.”

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

“You cannot live in a cage forever, darling,’ he said. ‘Humans were meant to be free. One day you’ll wish you came with me.”

A History of Madness by Rebecca Crunden

“Whatever power there was in giving a name, there was something darker and much more powerful in taking it away.”

Escaping Exodus by Nicky Drayden

“Books are letters in bottles, cast into the waves of time, from one person trying to save the world to another.”

This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

“And sometimes fear is good. Fear keeps you alive. But it can also keep you from what you really want.”

The Galaxy, and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers

“Just because it’s not important doesn’t mean it’s not important to someone.”

Winter’s Orbit by Evarina Maxwell

“Yeah, good luck with that. Trying to get humans not to touch dangerous things was a full-time job.”

Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells

“Freedom granted by your rulers is just a chain with a little slack.”

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickenson

“It wasn’t an endless future, and it wasn’t one with a clearly defined goal, but maybe that was what living actually felt like.”

The Cybernetic Tea Shop by Meredith Katz

When Kas had pictured the famous mecha fights of Old Earth, she’d imagined – well, not this. Something grander than a box full of overstuffed tourists staring down at a wreck.

Hard Reboot by Django Wexler

“She felt as if she was not choosing to do anything she was doing.”

A Strange and Brilliant Light by Eli Lee

“You keep asking why your work is not enough, and I don’t know how to answer that, because it is enough to exist in the world and marvel at it. You don’t need to justify that, or earn it. You are allowed to just live.”

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers

“The next few minutes were not her finest. And she’d spent the last millenium naked in a box, so the bar was already set pretty low.”

Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson

“Maybe truly being alive was about what she did next. The next action, the next word, the next decision. It was about deciding her fate.”

Devil in the Device by Lora Beth Johnson

  2. I don’t read that much sci-fi, but I did enjoy Winter’s Orbit this year! I also loved the first Wayfarers book, though I still need to continue the series. Hope you’ll have a fun Sci-Fi Month!
