Today, our Top Ten Tuesday is our Top Ten All-Time favorite books in Fantasy/Sci-Fi!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!
10. The Rook by Daniel O'Malley (Little, Brown)
It's smart, funny, and the perfect blend of fantasy, sci-fi with contemporary settings. It's basically Buffy for the supernatural society set.
9. The White Mountains by John Christopher (Simon & Schuster)
I actually haven't read this book in years, but it's still one of my favorites!
8. Pivot Point by Kasie West (HarperTeen)
Kasie's written a story that is intriguing, presents a host of fascinating different ideas, and the sequel is just as amazing as well!
7. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (Bloomsbury)
Samantha's written a book with a fantastic, alternate timeline for London. I can't wait to see where she goes with the next book!
6. Relic by Renee Collins (Entangled Teen)
Western setting + magic = win, all the way. I'm not going to say anything else about this book, since I need you guys to read it!
Also, Renee Collins is the sweetest + she's also repped by Mollie Glick, a.k.a. Dan O'Malley's agent.
(Mollie and I clearly share the same taste!)
5. Tsarina by J. Nelle Patrick (Razorbill)
J. Nelle Patrick (a.k.a. Jackson Pearce) has written a fantastic story about Natalya's love for her country, and will absolutely transport readers to Russia.
4. 2010: Odyssey Two by Arthur C. Clarke (Del Rey)
There's a very key, pivotal scene involving one of Jupiter's moons and one of the secondary characters, and Clarke kept me up at night with the utter devastation, inevitability and hopelessness of that character's fate.
You need to read this, and you need to read this now.
3. The Horse and Its Boy by C.S. Lewis (Narnian Chronicles #5 -Scholastic)
It gives readers a wonderful look at the reign of the Penvensie siblings (a.k.a the Golden Age) from the outside , and also allowed us to explore some of the other lands of in the Narnian world.
I only hope we see this as a movie some day!
2. A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin (Bantam)
It was my first foray into fantasy, and as Heather Demetrios says on Goodreads, Le Guin's depiction of that balance between good and evil was fascinating.
1. About Time by Jack Finney (Simon & Schuster/Touchstone)
Favorite story? Such Interesting Neighbors. The possibilities are endless. Read it. You won't regret it.
