This week’s topic was a choice between either doing Best Books I’ve Read In 2018 (So Far) and TTT Throwback. So I chose TTT Throwback since I really just joined in on TTT and I know that I’ve missed out on so many great topics!
I went for Ten Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added to My TBR List. I chose Sci-Fi because I love Sci-Fi but I haven’t read much from that genre in a long while and there’s so many out there that I have my eye on.
Hope y’all enjoy this! This post will probably end up being long so I’m going to go ahead and apologize lol.
This is described as MEN IN BLACK meets STRANGER THINGS and has some mystery and comedic elements in it. Also the cover is fantastic! 👍 👍
This comes out next month on the 21st!
An Asian protagonist in a sci-fi adventure!! Sounds awesome!!
This one comes out in September of this year!
A Conspiracy of Stars + An Anatomy of Beasts by Olivia A. Cole
This sounds incredible and has a lot of potential to be a great series. This is sci-fi set on another planet/universe which I’m absolutely here for. Also the MC is named Octavia which I’m assuming is after Octavia E. Butler, a sci-fi ICON.
The second book An Anatomy of Beasts comes out in 2019.
This is about teenagers being sent into space. Sounds like a bunch of terrible mistakes will be made. But what really has me wanting to read this is the MC is an asexual Indian-American and the book has other rep as well.
This a Jane Eyre retelling set in space! Sounds pretty neat even though I haven’t quite read all of Jane Eyre, I get the gist of it. I just enjoy the idea of a love story set in space.
This is a dystopian that looks very cool and is set in near-future Taipei. THOSE COVERS. WOW. I’ve just heard a lot of great things about Want and I just want to get into this series.
Ruse comes out next year!!
I don’t really know that much about this series but that it has something to do with hacking and DNA. Sounds up my alley!!
This Cruel Design, the sequel comes out this October!
Teenagers having to face aliens after said aliens invade Earth. Sounds great to me. The main character, Clover is a bisexual aromantic Latina and this is #OWNVoices rep! Plus the author herself added content warnings for this in the Goodreads comments, which I highly applaud her for and wish more authors (but really publishing) did more of!
Content warning: Clover struggles with both PTSD/depression, and even discusses a suicide attempt.
This is a dystopia about an all-girl crew!!! SIGN ME THE F*CK UP which is described as THE OUTSIDERS meets MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Whoever comes up with these descriptions just gets me and my taste.
Okay this was honestly a cover-add but the synopsis of the MC being a space cadet and having to save her team sounds interesting.
*bi the way look at those colors 👀👀👀*
