YA SciFi Books You Should Read After Starflight
Cinder- This series has several great futuristic settings – New Beijing, Luna, and various space ships. I LOVED how the author imagined a futuristic Earth, not to mention a city on the moon.
A Darker Shade of Magic- The imagination in this book blew me AWAY. There are 4 different Londons in alternate times that are layered on top of each other. AMAZING.
These Broken Stars- This is science fiction gold. I LOVED this book and its planets being terraformed and its epic romance.
Illuminae- I don’t even want to say too much about this book except that you should read it!
Ready Player One- I really enjoyed the computer simulation style setting of this book – it felt scarily realistic.
Stitching Snow & Spinning Starlight- These books reimagined classic fairytales (Snow White & The Wild Swans) into new futuristic stories. They were original while incorporating the best parts of their source inspiration.
Passenger- I hope to one day live in a world where I can travel in space and time via a super cool pirate ship, so Passenger was sort of creating the dream
Alienated- If in the future hot aliens come down to be delegates for their county, I don’t think a lot of teen girls will complain…
Uninvited- Despite a terrible sequel I would NEVER recommend, this first book was amazing. It’s basically the YA version of Minority Report, where teens discover whether they were born with the kill gene…SO GOOD.
