There’s more to science fiction than aliens and spaceships. The dictionary definition is: fiction dealing principally with the impact of actual or imagined science on society or individuals or having a scientific factor as an essential orienting component. So that includes dystopias, zombie viruses, genetic engineering gone awry, time travel, steampunk, extreme weather, space exploration and, of course, aliens.

I love the button! I also love that the number of books is being left to the individual participants. However, I’m not sure what my end goal will be. I would like to get caught up with Gini Koch’s Katerine “Kitty” Katt series and I have a growing stack of Sci-Fi Romance books. I’ve also got a huge of back log of Star Wars novels — and Darth Plagueis will be released in January, a book I’m breaking my “no SW hardbacks” rule for! And then there’s all the other “paranormal” books that fit the description above. I’ll just have to settle on a range: 6-10 books.
Though I won’t attempt to list all the possible books, there are a few I will mention:
- Alien Tango (Katherine “Kitty” Katt #2) (Gini Koch)
- Children of Scarabaeus (Scarabaeus #2) (Sara Creasy)
- Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) (Suzanne Collins)
- Star Wars: Darth Plagueis (James Luceno)
- Embrace the Night Eternal (The Envy Chronicles #2) (Joss Ware)
- Enemy Within (Enemy #1) (Marcella Burnard)
I will track my progress here.
