#RRSciFiMonth : Space, the final frontier…


I’m combining today’s Top Ten Tuesday with Sci-fi month, an event being hosted by One More and  Dear Geek Place (check out the #RRSciFiMonth hashtag to keep uptodate)

tttTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is :

Backlist Books I Want to Read

Nice and easy for me – pick up the kindle and flip back through the library making a note of the first ten books that I haven’t yet read – and in this case use only the Sci-fi books.  I’m not going to lie, I feel a bit ashamed of the number of unread books that I own just on my kindle – if I spent the next 10 years reading, without buying another book I’d have plenty to occupy me.  I need help!  Anyway – here are some of the sci fi books I have waiting to be read and hopefully I’ll be tackling some of these over the next month.

  1. Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky
  2. False Hearts by Laura Lamb
  3. Apocalypse Nyx by Kameron Hurley
  4. Dark Eden by Chris Beckett
  5. By Fire Above by Robyn Bennis
  6. The Stars Now Unclaimed by
  7. Austral by Paul McAuley
  8. The Three Body Problem by Liu Cixin
  9. Bald New World by Peter Tieryas
  10. Gemsigns by Stephanie Saulter

So, which book do you think I should pick up first?
