Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books with an … Setting

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books with an … Setting.

Out of this World.

I love reading sci-fi books, not as much as fantasy admittedly but it’s still up there. However I did only recently discover and fall in love with the genre myself so there aren’t many sci-fi books that I’ve really loved; I’ve got a lot more on my to-read list which sound amazing and that I can’t wait to get started on. And that’s what my list is this week; a few books which are perfect for taking that first step into the world of YA sci-fi, and a few which I haven’t read but that I’ve heard nothing but great things about.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim.

I tend to not pick up books on a whim much. I get recommendations from my friends and from Goodreads, read new books by authors I already love, and when I do find a new books I always wait and anticipate and hype up its release. I did think this week’s topic was going to be a real challenge but when I started looking through the books I’d read recently I was surprised when there were more than a few which I started reading (or brought) on a whim.

Four Stars

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world – and each other – the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My To Be Read List.

I have a lot of books on my to-read list, and I’ve posted a fair bit already about what books I’ve decided to read next, what books I didn’t get around to last year have been added to my to-read list for this year. I add books to my to-read list every day, and most of the time I start them before books that have been on there for years. Below are the ten books I most recently added to my list; some are 2016 up-coming releases which I am very excited to read, and others are earlier releases which I have heard great things about.
