Top Ten Historical and Futuristic Books

Top Ten Tuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week, we were given the option of choosing topics that feature historical or futuristic books. Since I can’t make up my mind, I’m doing halfsies. Also, I don’t think I have enough for each genre to make a full list.

Five books set in the past that I loved:
The Sunbird ebook Code Name Verity - UK2 The Book Thief - UK The Secret Countess Nine Coaches Waiting

Five books set in the future that I loved:
Touchstone Trilogy Illuminae Archivist Wasp Silent Blade 2 Ender's Game - movie cover

I’ve tried read-alikes of these titles but I didn’t enjoyed them as much as the ones I mentioned here. I would love to discover more books that I can add to this list. Have you read any of these? What are books set either in the past or in the future that you would recommend based on the titles I have here?

  1. So many of these titles look great. I haven’t read any of them even though quite a few are actually on my TBR shelf. If you’re looking for a new sci-fi book, I’ve been hearing really great things about Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach. I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet though.

    • Oh I’ve read Fortune’s Pawn, and also Grimspace by Ann Aguirre and Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy which keep being recommended together. I had fun while I was reading them but I couldn’t say that I loved them. And I don’t remember the details of the stories anymore.

    • Rachel, I think you’ll really enjoy reading it. It’s a very unusual type of story, I don’t think I’ve come across anything that has a similar feel. I’d be curious to hear what you think.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
