As Requested: Science Fiction Book Lists

My favorite genre is probably science fiction. It isn't what I've read the most of, but I have read very few sci-fi books that I haven't enjoyed. Now, if you are a long time follower of the blog, you know that I specifically LOVE dystopian, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic.  I love them so much, I had to share my love of the subgenres during a series in the winter. 


I have made it public knowledge that I am a fan. Then, earlier this month when my friend Kathy (@thebrainlair) asked for dystopian suggestions, I was on it. My friend Maria (@mselke01) also was looking for science fiction suggestions for her summer reading where she is focusing on science fiction.


They both asked if I could do a post where I share my favorites and I have done as requested. Here are some great books (I rated them all 3 or more) that you should check out if you haven't. My lists are in no particular order.  If the book is part of a series, I only put the first book in the post, but the entire series is worth reading.  For each book I am just putting a picture of the novel that'll link to my Goodreads review of the book or the Goodreads summary.
