September 9th- I Love Science: My Favorite Science Fiction Books- This can be anything you want. Science fiction can be anything from time travel to DNA mutations like X-Men. You can go with comic books or novels. Whatever you feel like writing about.

My Favorite Science Fiction books are:

Ready Player One by: Ernest Cline

One of my favorite books. It has great references to 80s pop culture. It is Willy Wonka meets the Matrix. If you like anything from the 80s from video games, TV and movies of that era this is the book for you. Here is my review of the book.

Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples

One of my favorite graphic novels, this is a series about a galactic war with two parents from warring factions caught in the middle along with their newborn daughter. It is very adult with a lot of violence and adult situations, but I still highly recommend it if you are a fan of graphic novels. Here is my review of Vol. 1.

Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti.

A YA version of Heroes, and one of my favorite books I read this summer and it surprised me on how much I loved the characters. While it wasn’t as plot heavy, but I did like that the fact that the story was mostly character driven. Here is my review of the book.

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

 

I know the author is an asshole, but I didn’t know that before I read the book. I really loved it. I love Ender as a character and I love the world it takes place in.

The Thrawn Trilogy by: Timothy Zahn

I was kinda disappointed that Disney/Star Wars took out the cannon for the expanded universe. Even though it’s not in cannon anymore, I still fully recommend giving it a read because Thrawn is one of my favorite Star Wars villains.

That’s my list of favorite science fiction books. What are your favorites? Let me know in the comments below!

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I first read the book a few summers ago when I first saw the trailer for the movie. It’s a really good book and that’s all I will saw because I am not spoiling anything.

Stop Me if You Heard this One Before by David Yoo

This is one of my favorite contemporary reads. It has a nice summer romance story but than school starts and reality sits in. A very good book to read over the summer.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Its on the list, because when I read the first book, Cinder it was during the summer. Loved it so much I decided to read Scarlet and Cress in order, and it became one of my favorite series.

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I know, the author is very much an asshole. But I really love the book. I read the book when i spent the summer in Haiti. I loved the story, the characters and everything about the book.

Harry Potter series by JK Rowling

I know I put Harry Potter on a lot of my previous lists, but you can’t fault me because the series is awesome. I read the first book many summers ago and never looked back.
