SciFi-books (still) On My TBR-list

This year I didn’t read a lot of science fiction. I mostly read fantasy and historical fiction. That means the number of sci-fi books on my To Be Read-list isn’t getting any lower. It even keeps growing! So I took a look at my list to see which books I still want to read. For every book I decided if I want to read it or delete it. Then I am going to explain this in one sentence. Here are all of them:

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Want To Read It / Delete It
This is said to be the first science fiction book written by a black woman.

The Sound of Stars by Alechia Dow
Want To Read It / Delete It
The premise still sounds amazing: can a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music work together to save humanity?

Memory of Water by Emmi Itäranta
Want To Read It / Delete It
I am going to read this book set in a post-climate change world for my SFF Countries project, because it’s written by a Finnish author.

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
Want To Read It / Delete It
A girl alone in space doesn’t sound that interesting anymore.

Unearthed (Unearthed, #1) by Amie Kaufman & Meagon Spooner
Want To Read It / Delete It
Amie Kaufman is one of my favourite writers and the book was pitched somewhere as “Indiana Jones in space.”

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1) by Elizabeth May
Want To Read It / Delete It
The plot doesn’t seem very original and I’m just not really looking forward to reading this book.

The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Want To Read It / Delete It
This appears to be quite a controversial book and I’m afraid I am not going to like it.

The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson
Want To Read It / Delete It
I read somewhere that this book “mainly takes place on a creepy Lost-esque island.”

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Want To Read It / Delete It
Although I am not entirely sure if I’m ready to start a new series, this seems a really good book.

The Light at the Bottom of the World (Light the Abyss, #1) by London Shah
Want To Read It / Delete It
This book is set in London at the twenty-first century when our world is underwater.

Everfair by Nisi Shawl
Want To Read It / Delete It
I want to read this book for my SFF Countries Project, because it’s a steampunk alternative history of Congo.

Pacifica by Kristen Simmons
Want To Read It / Delete It
A dystopia about climate change and pirates.

Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie
Want To Read It / Delete It
Diverse fantasy with an enemies-to-best-friends female friendship.

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland
Want To Read It / Delete It
The premise still sounds really interesting: magic once existed, but stopped working due to the scientific revolution.

The Swimmers by Marian Womack
Want To Read It / Delete It
This is an eco-dystopia set in Spain I want to read for my SFF Countries Project.

I only deleted three books, but it was nice to review my TBR-list. Have you read any of these books? And what did you think of them? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I have seriously just decided to extend scifi month into December because I have too many lol… Good for you for going through and making some tough decisions!! I am not trying to add to your already overwhelming TBR pile but I definitely wanted to share my #1 book so far for scifi month (and maybe you can read it next year? lol)
    It’s called “Moon People: The Journals of Lordiah” by author Dixon Troyer. It’s a wonderful mix of sci fi, history, fantasy but mostly satire, to create one awesome ride! Our titualr character, Lordiah, an alien from a distant planet reunites with his long-lost daughter, Luna (she is attempting to rob his home – lol unbeknownst to her it’s her estranged father).. Their reunion puts her in danger so he takes her to a safe space, to his second home, inside the moon. Not only that, every storyline in this novel is a comedic twist based on real ancient mysteries, conspiracy theories and bible stories. It was a lot of fun to look this stuff up after and connect the fictional stories in this book to their inspirations. You can learn more about it here –
