For today’s Top Ten Tuesday post (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) we are meant to be sharing memorable quotes. But as you might remember, I am terrible about remembering quotes. The only reason there were quotes in last weeks post is because Goodreads tends to have quotes of most books on their page. So let us not kid ourselves to think I can write down some memorable quotes this week.
Instead, since it is sci-fi month, I would like to share a short list of books with supernatural powers. While those kind of books often categorized in fantasy, in reality supernatural powers and superhero books are more science-fiction as those things fall into pseudo-science. Just remember Fringe.
So let me share 5 books like that with you.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.
Not only is The Darkest Minds a dystopian, our main characters have supernatural powers. They can be scanned to see what kind they are and the powers develop after a sickness. It has more foundations in science than fantasy.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Again there is an ilness that swept through the youth that left them with many dead and others with strange markings and strange powers.
Warp Gate Concerto by Dorian Graves
Not only does this novella take place in space, the main characters have powerful singing abbilities. And there is a polyarmorous relationship. What more is there to want?
The Sidekick Squad by C.B. Lee
Superheroes and villians!
The Fever King by Victorial Lee
While the synopsis calls the sickness a viral magic I would very much place this in sci-fi. The powers have a basis in the brains and the whole setting is dystopian.
