Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books If You Like Doctor Who

Top Ten Tuesday I had way too much fun with this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! You see, I love things. Many things. So picking something to match books to, well, that was tough. I finally settled on Doctor Who. Now there are actually MANY Doctor Who novels out there, but for the sake of this list I will ignore them (Whovians will love those anyway) XD

Doctor Who

Ten Books If You Like Doctor Who

  1. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
    British humour. Space ships. Wibbly wobbly timey wimey. Possible impossibilities. Impossible possibilities. A predictable choice for this list but I don’t care. Live a little. Read this.
  2. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
    Not sci-fi. Doesn’t matter though. Sense of humour and ridiculous plot twists? Check! Also an angel, although not a weeping one 😉
  3. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
    Futuristic society. I can imagine the Doctor paying this society a visit!
  4. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
    And another creepy futuristic society. The Doctor would have to get to the heart of this one…
  5. The Romans

  6. The Last Days of Pompeii by Edward Bulwer-Lytton
    A list full of sci-fi, but what about some historical fiction? Whether classic or new Who, I love it when the Doctor travels back in time. I read The Last Days of Pompeii maybe ten years ago. I don’t remember it exactly but I remember loving it. And everything I knew about Pompeii I learned from this book. If you enjoyed the classic adventure The Romans or the new Who episode The Fires of Pompeii, you’ll love this.
  7. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
    I picked this because of its theme of past, present and future, and the way individual people’s histories are intertwined. Historical fiction along with a little sci-fi? Yes!
  8. The Beast Below

  9. Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
    This book reminded me of The Beast Below episode (which I loved), even though Mortal Engines isn’t (so far) about anything alive…
  10. How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C. Lillis
    This recommendation I dedicate to Whovians who are deep into the fandom and are interested in LGBT themed books.
  11. Harmony by Project Itoh
    More creepy futuristic society!
  12. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams
    I admit I haven’t actually read this one (it’s on my shelf though), but it’s Douglas Adams, it’s sci-fi, and I’m sure it’s a match for Doctor Who fans!

Any other Whovians out there? Which books would you recommend to those who love Doctor Who?

  1. DW is awesome! I wanted to come by earlier as I saw the title on twitter, but then forgot. :X
    I read Hitchhiker’s Guide in elementary and loved it, so much fun! I have to reread it sometime soon.
    I also have a few others on my TBR.
    Insignia is great, also space-y and all 😀
    Happy reading!

    1. If you ever have time, totally watch Doctor Who! It’s great 😀 I haven’t read more by Philip K. Dick but I’ve got a few books on my shelf, so I definitely have to…

      (I have no idea about OpenID either, it’s so annoying :S There should be other ways to comment though, I think?)
