I've been in a sci-fi kind of mood lately so I decided to do a top 5 of my favorite science fiction (adult) books. I'll also be doing a top 5 of YA science fiction books (next week maybe?) but the ones in the adult age range are actually my favorites.

 Which of these titles speaks out the most to you or what are your favorite sci-fi books? 🚀


  1. I haven't read many sci-fi books, but I confess I wanna give them a proper go! I think I'd pick Adam first, the fact it's inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein intrigues me a lot :D
    Thanks for sharing this list, Stephanie!

    1. I enjoyed Adam SO. MUCH. It's too bad the author hasn't published anything else since.

  2. Adam sounds really good! And I like that it's a stand-alone; I can't start any more series! I think a sci-fi book that sticks out in my mind is Dark Matter!

    1. I wish there was a sequel to Adam, though. So much potential for it!

  3. Ooh I haven't read any of these! I've been slacking on sci- fi lately, sadly. Titanborn and Adam both look great!

    1. Dark Horse is my favorite out of all these but Titanborn would be my second. :)

  4. These titles look very vERY cool! Sci-fi was my go-to genre once, but since then as much I appreciate a good blurb or review, I haven't dived back into it yet.

  5. OMG!! What a list!! I LOVE science fiction, and need to read more of it! So thanks for this list, as I'm going to check them all out on Goodreads!! I'm bookmarking this page so I can refer back to it. Thanks again!! As Mr. Spock would say, "Live long and prosper!" HUGS!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  6. I haven't read any of these but I do love sci-fi! I really like the sound of Adam, because I loved Frankenstein and am all for genius endings :D
