So I’m not really someone who reads historical books, I try, but they’re just not my style! But futuristic? Oooh yes. I am however splitting this list into two five pieces, so first up:

Top Five Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read In Books!

  1. A futuristic space society, that’s normal. Like give me a contemporary romance but WHOA THEY LIVE IN SPACE.
  2. Give me a story of a girl who lives on a ship like the enterprise. A YA Star Trek basically, like there’s always problems going down, the parents are gone and it’s up to the kids to run the ship and keep everyone alive.
  3. GIVE ME A YA STAR TREK, ACTUAL STAR TREK UNIVERSE. DOES THIS EXIST? IT SHOULD.
  4. A seriously technologically advanced world, one with actual working (and non-psychotic) AI’s, tell me any story you want in this world but let me have a spunky AI that’s like a great friend and trying to figure out the human world.
  5. If you haven’t guessed I want like stable futuristic societies. I’m all about the crazy out there ones but stable would be amazing.

Top Five Sci-Fi Books That I Love!

  1. The Lunar Chronicles
  2. Illuminae
  3. A Thousand Pieces of You
  4. Under The Never Sky
  5. Magonia (This one I actually haven’t read yet, it’s on my TBR for this month, but I’ve heard great things about it so I’m decently okay putting this here)

 

Top Five Historical SettingsPolina

  1. Oregon Trail! (hello, elementary school flashbacks!)
  2. 1920s New York (so fun and vibrant to read!)
  3. this isn’t a concrete setting, but I like books that are sort of…in the background of major historical events, and touch on areas that maybe aren’t as prominently discussed
  4. anything to do with historical fantasy/sci-fi (it’s just such a fun combination)
  5. anything to do with Russian history (this one is mostly because I grew up on Russian fairy tales and they just have a vibe that works with me. I’m not sure I’ve ever actually read a book taking place in actual Russia, either, just fake Russia)

Top Five Historical Fiction Books

  1. The Diviners by Libba Bray
  2. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
  3. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
  4. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  5. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee
