#SciFiMonth Top Ten Tuesday | Sci-fi on my TBR


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!

This week’s theme is ‘Books I Would Hand to Someone Who Claims to Not Like Reading’, but it’s SciFiMonth so today I’m going down a different route! I shared my very small TBR for the month yesterday, and today I thought I’d share the other sci-fi novels on my TBR that I’d like to get to… eventually.

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers: Chambers is my favourite sci-fi author and I still need to get my hands on a copy of her latest novella, which sounds so lovely.

The Ones We’re Meant to Find by Joan He: This novel easily has one of the most beautiful covers ever. I’ve seen so many excellent reviews for it that I need to get to it asap.

The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia: This historical sci-fi reimagining is due out next July and I am here for it.

A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine: I just know I’m going to love this novel when I get to it, but it was the novel I was reading when my Grandma died and I haven’t been able to go back to it yet.

Battle Royale: Angels’ Border by Koushun Takami: I loved Battle Royale when I finally read it a couple of years ago, and this graphic novel follows a very interesting group of characters during the original story.

Sisters of the Vast Black by Lina Rather: A novella about nuns in space. Why haven’t I read this yet?

This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone: Natalie @ Too Short to Read has been singing this story’s praises, which means I need to read it.

Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao: Wu Zetian fascinates me, so a sci-fi reimagining of her story with a polyamorous romance sounds right up my street.

The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum: Ancrum is an author I’ve heard so many good things about and I have a feeling I could love this novel a lot.

The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell: Yet another sci-fi novel I’ve heard so many good – yet harrowing – things about. It’s about time I read it!

What did you talk about this week?

    A psalm for the wild built is honestly perfect. Becky Chambers just can do no wrong. I’m truly amazed by her and how her books make me feel. It was akin to a safe, warm hug with the ways it helped me to reflect on my own life and feel good about myself… but still with all the speculative and fantastical aspects of her writing that she’s famous for. I hope you get to read it soon Jess

    I just received a copy of Battle Royale yesterday in the mail. I’m happy to hear it’s one you enjoyed! Great twist this week!

    Such a good list! The Sparrow is one of my all-time favorite books — I’ve read it multiple times, and it always has an impact. I’ve neve read any Becky Chambers (hanging head in shame), but I did just pick up a copy of Psalm for the Wild-Built and I’m looking forward to reading that one and more by her. I still need to read This Is How You Lose the Time War too. Hope you enjoy!
