Sci-Fi Sunday

maxresdefaulI am a huge Science Fiction fan, but I have been such a slacker. I have not read any Science Fiction novels, for quite some time now. I have a To-Be-Read list that stretches far and wide, many of which  are Sci-Fi books.

Here is a little taste of my Sci-Fi TBR List:

1984” by George Orwell
A warning about the menaces of totalitarianism. The novel is set in an imaginary future world that is dominated by three perpetually warring totalitarian police states. The book’s hero, Winston Smith, is a minor party functionary in one of these states. His longing for truth and decency leads him to secretly rebel against the government. (via amazon)

Rated 4.5 on


The Martian” by Andy Weir
[Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there]

I am so very intrigued by this novel, it’s Sci-Fi, it’s extraordinarily well reviewed, and it just sounds awesome!

Rated 4.6 on


Cloud Atlas: A Novel” by David Mitchell
I saw the movie and absolutely LOVED it. I recently discovered that it was based on this book. I’m a little shocked because the movie was peculiar, as far as time-lapse and multiple stories etc. I’m interested to see how it plays out in the novel.

Rated 4.0 on


Here is a Sci-Fi book I’ve read and love:

Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card
This is one of my favorite Sci-Fi books. It was written I believe for a younger audience, but you know me, I don’t really pay attention to those distinctions. Ender’s Game is a fantastic book, it is so well written, and a must read for any Sci-Fi (or book for that matter) fan. The story is catchy and interesting, the characters are great, and the twist will entertain even the wisest of readers. I have not read any of the books in the series because I fear it will dilute my experience, I’m probably wrong, but a bit paranoid anyway.

Rated 4.6 on

Book Bean: 
Milky Way Mocha
Malt, Chocolate, Espresso, Steamed almond milk (if you like your drinks sweet add caramel in the liquid, I don’t.) Top it off with whip and a swirl of caramel.
