Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Futuristic Books I Love

It's Tuesday which means that it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday post. This week's topic is ten futuristic books I love. The Top Ten Tuesday feature was created by The Broke and the Bookish and more about it can be found here. Let's get started...

Number 10: Angelfall by Susan Ee

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)So this book has a lot of hype but I could not, not mention this book on this list. It is amazing in a creepy way and the story is really interesting combining both angels in a dystopian setting. The story is so good and I highly recommend it.   

Number 9: Unwind by Neal Shusterman 

Unwind (Unwind, #1)I think out of all the books mentioned on the list, this one is the most frightening by how real it can actually be. The book focuses on teenagers who can be unwound for extra parts. It follows characters that this can happen to and how they rebel. This is definitely one of my favourites.

Number 8: Blood Red Road by Moira Young 

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)This book can be describes as a western set in the future which is a fast-paced read which is definitely one of my favourites which I highly recommend. 

Number 7: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)This book is set in the future when humans are of lower rank to vampires and are seen as blood cattle. It is an interesting read that is amazing and you should read it. I mean dystopia and vampires need I say more... 

Number 6: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff 

How I Live NowSo this book is set in England as if they were in WWIII so it is really interesting. The writing is different in a good way and it is a book that you will fly through. The characters are ones that you will love and want to succeed throughout the course of the novel. 

Number 5: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)OK so this is a fairytale retelling but it is set in the future so it counts. This is just an amazing series with characters that you will fall in love with and that is good with intertwining the retelling in a scientific setting.   

Number 4: The Host by Stephenie Meyer

The Host (The Host, #1)You shouldn't judge this book by it's author! Just because this was written by the author of Twilight does not mean it is bad, it fact it is really good. Like really good especially for an alien book. It encompasses aliens and romance and is a good read.  

Number 3: Divergent by Veronica Roth 

Divergent (Divergent, #1)How could I not mention this one. It is a great book regardless of your views on a rest of the series and it should definitely be read by many of you if you haven't read this yet. Also don't judge this book on it's adaptation. 

Number 2: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)This one may be controversial one as I know that a lot of people dislike this book but for me it is a favourite. I love the diversity of characters and I love where the story goes. I also like that the story has limited romance so yeah... I also love James Dashner as an author so...

Number 1: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)What a shock that this is at the top of my list. The Hunger Games is one of my favourite books of all time and was the one book to got me into this genre so of course it is on this list. If you haven't read it yet, I promise you will not regret it.

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
