Top Ten Science Fiction of 2014

Top Ten Science Fiction of 2014

Top Ten Tuesday Ohhh it feels like it’s too early for 2014 top lists! But I think this week’s TTT is a good moment start 🙂 I will be posting a few top tens in my different go-to genres over the coming weeks. This week I’ll kick off with science fiction!

I actually read more science fiction this year than I expected! The Sci-fi & Fantasy MOOC I followed earlier this year helped, although I did not enjoy that many of the sci-fi classics we were told to read (and I had to skip two that I was looking forward to: Ursula LeGuin’s Left Hand of Darkness and Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother). It was difficult to create a top 3, especially, because the first three books on my list were equally amazing.

    1. Not sci-fi but did you read The Yellow Wallpaper by Gilman? I definitely recommend that one too if you enjoyed Herland 🙂 Different genre, and it’s a short story rather than a book, but it’s really good!

    1. China Mountain Zhang is one of my favourite books of the year so… please do read it 😉

      I’ll definitely be picking up The Stories of Ibis in January for January in Japan 😀

    1. I recommend Ness’ book soooooo hard! It’s really good 🙂 As for Itoh… well yes! And agreed on Gaiman 8) This is one of his children’s books and it’s adorable and really funny.
