This week’s topic: Science Fiction and Fantasy novels.
So this it’s a genre that I’ve read a lot of, and in looking at the posts of people who have posted their list for this week already, I have noticed that I have read almost none of them. So this list is basically the five sci-fi and fantasy books that I have read.
I mean, obviously. Harry Potter shaped and impacted my life in a way that is so profound and intense that I would not be the same person I currently am if I hadn’t read it. Harry Potter is the most important book I have ever read.
I first read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy when I was in high school. I literally hated it, probably because I hated that class with every bit of my being, maybe I didn’t get the humor then. However, I re-read it about 5 years ago, and I loved it. It’s just so good and ridiculous. Such a good book. I have the whole series in one of those fancy leather bound books from Barnes and Nobel editions, but I have only read the first one thus far.
Oh man, so I kind of like the Hobbit. I read it for the first time my freshman year of high school and just really liked the whole idea of it. I mean, I’m pretty sure anyone reading this has read it or seen the movies, so I don’t have to tell you about how good it is, but if you haven’t, trust me, it’s good.
Who doesn’t love 1984? I mean, here in the United States were are basically living in it. This isn’t the book I would choose to live in if I had a choice, but I don’t.
This is another one that I was forced to read in high school, and thought was stupid and then re-read later and greatly enjoyed it.
This is a Sci-book, NPR told me so. Also, there are aliens and a person unstuck in time so yeah.
To be totally honest, I read this book about 12 years ago, and I can’t remember exactly what happens but I know WW2 is involved and I remember being very struck by it. This one is worth a re-read soon I’m thinking.
What are your top 5 Sci-fi and Fantasy novels?
