Dipping Into Sci-Fi Old Hits from Early 2010’s

In an effort to tackle my huge pile of unread books, I am trying to change things up by reading older books. Sci-fi old hits are going to be what I try to incorporate into my reading plans over the summer.

Encouraged by Fellow-Readers

If you have not met La La, you’re missing out. She’s a cool blogger and a musician, bad-ass mom, and all-around awesome person. La La mentioned the Scifi Summer of 2018 in her post here. 

I am going to try to weave in some sci-fi throughout the summer (I hope). I have a couple of series that I’d like to delve into (and finish).

Old School Sci-Fi: The Hits

The famously Good

Cinder by Marissa Meyer is up there in terms of sci-fi love lists. It truly stood out as a contender for hits years ago. I have the whole quartet but I have never given the first book a chance.

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufmann and Megan Spooner is famous as well. I am not sure which of these two series I will be able to tackle first. Either way, I have ration my awesome sci-fi because mostly what I have is not in that category.

Popular Hits–Not Set in Space

Okay, so I want to try Legend by Marie Lu. It is kind of a dystopia and features a rivalry between the two main characters. Listen. I am here for this.

Remember how I said I wanted to read big books? I think it’ll be nice to try the Chaos Walking trilogy. It is intimidating because I know there will be some major heartbreak.

 

 

Continuing Series:
Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi. Supposedly, I have been “reading” this book for ages. In other words, I have been hauling it into the box next to my bed. Then, I wouldn’t read it because I was distracted by other stories.

That is not cool of me. I’m sorry, Perry and Aria. I will return to your stories this week, gosh dang it.

Bringing In Fantasy:

A legacy of Kings: the Book I Have Been “reading” for weeks

I need to try and finish this up. It’s not a bad book at all; it’s just that it requires more concentration because it demands attention. Besides, I find that I have to be in a certain mood with a level of patience to discern which character I am reading at the moment.

If I do manage to wrap this one up, I want to dive right into this next series.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes is what I want to try after I am done with this book. I know people have mixed feelings about it, but listen, I have seen the fandom for these books. I want to join! Obviously, I am trying to embrace my inner trash bag (I mean, it’s not really inner. It’s kind of visible to everyone).

Not sharing the pictures of these two books because I have been trying to get to them for ages.

What is your favorite introduction to science fiction as a genre? It can be film, books, or shows.

 

October of 2018 was a total dumpster fire. Nevertheless, I am determined to bounce back

  1. CINDER! I hope you’ll love this book – this series is one of my favorites and it keeps on getting better and better. I really hope you’ll love it 🙂 I also read Legend -only the first book so far- and enjoyed it, but I haven’t read the Chaos Walking trilogy entirely. Somehow, the first book wasn’t for me, but my opinion is wildly unpopular for that one haha.
    Happy reading! 😀
