Because I read too much YA. Save me
(Note: I've tried to keep to one book/series per author but I do mention their other books under the description)
This weeks feature: Scifi
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Scifi/dystopian. I don’t care what the rest of the internet says, this is such a fun book. Definitely a love letter to anything 80s nerd culture. Plus audio by Wil Wheaton!
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Scifi/dystopian. I’ve read a lot of dystopian, but very few are so excellent. MC def goes on a character development journey through the three books. There is a bit of love triangle but I love the way it shakes out. Also his scifi/alternate history Leviathan is great, just a side note.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Scifi/dystopian. First book is a retelling of cinderella as a cyborg living in future China. Rest of the series is just as great. A fantastic cast of female leads and the men who pine for them. The audio reader is also so good.
The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex
Scifi. Mostly silly book about a ten year old girl on a road trip with an alien, but it has such HEART. Also the audio reader is so excellent.
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Scifi/dystopian. Great book, enough said. Rest of series is meh, but worth reading if only because the books are so short.
Feed by M.T. Anderson
Scifi/dystopian. The future slang is so good. The world is basically just a 90s view of what 2020 would be and it is nearly completely right. Cause google has taken over our brains there is no lie in that. Awesome audiobook too.
