This week’s topic is Top SFF Books on Your TBR. Pretty straight forward right? We just gotta talk about the books begging to be read on our science fiction and fantasy TBRs (I’ll focus more on science fiction)(for me this list will consist of my most anticipated upcoming releases and old releases that I just haven’t been able to get to but still want to read very badly.)

Condensing this list to just 5 books is going to be sooo hard because I have so many Science Fiction books I’m looking forward to reading. Anyway I still did it, so just scroll below to see the ones I’m keeping an eagle eye on.

TRAPPIST-1 Star Geekout + You Are Now a Step Closer to Living in Your Favorite YA Sci-Fi!

trappist

Before I even begin I just want to squeal a little bit about reaching 300 followers. Gah! Thanks you guys!


Anyways the world’s been abuzz about NASA discovering this new mini solar system that could possibly support life (water, plants, oxygen, the whole shabam!) and its kinda crazy how completely unexpected this news was. If you hadn’t heard this news; thanks for crawling out from under that rock to read my lil ol blog (lol)… Basically the news goes that around a star (40 light years away) named Trappist 1, seven [earth-sized] planets have been discovered and according to current investigations could possible support life. So we’re basically one step away from living in our favorite Sci-Fi novels right? The ones with the cool space ship battles and interplanetary wars (Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m looking at you…).

WELCOME TO MANHATTAN, 2118.

A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. Everyone there wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

LEDA COLE’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

ERIS DODD-RADSON’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

RYLIN MYERS’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will this new life cost Rylin her old one?

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is AVERY FULLER, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Amid breathtaking advancement and high-tech luxury, five teenagers struggle to find their place at the top of the world. But when you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down…..

REVIEW

Easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given! The Thousandth Floor is an incredibly entertaining read. With the amazing cast of characters and the fun teen drama; it’s no wonder why this book was so hyped!

You can see from the synopsis that this book has five point of views (POVs) and with such a large cast of character’s it’s easy for an author to make a mess of things but Katharine Mcgee did such a wonderful job because each character felt separate and distinct. They all played their parts in the story without once feeling like their “voices” were blending together.

The actual plot of the story was great. It reads almost like a soap opera. I mean rich kids in the future? You couldn’t ask for a better setting for drama with a capital D!

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that with 5 POV’s its was a little disorienting at first trying to keep up with all the story lines but once I got into it the pages flew by way to quickly!

If you’re looking for a quick fun read (full of juicy drama) this one is the book for you!


*ahem* Do you guys notice anything different about my blog? No, it’s not a new font. I changed my design! I just wasn’t satisfied with the old one. Hope you guys like it… Anyway

In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the  OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. When Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.
