The Future is Bright

I suddenly realised today that futuristics are becoming my new favourite genre. We’re talking 5-star books. I still like urban fantasy, of course, but it’s just not wowing me enough to be 5-star. 4-star, yes. Maybe it’s because futuristics are new and exciting to me, and I’ve simply read too much UF. I’m not sure. Maybe it’s because futuristics are more believable, so I connect with them more.

I was going to do this at the end June, but what the hell, I’ll do it now.

5-Star Books Tezzy’s Read in 2008
Elizabeth Flock’s But Inside I’m Screaming (women’s fiction)
Erica Spindler’s Dead Run (thriller)
Mary E. Pearson’s The Adoration of Jenna Fox (young adult, futuristic)
Stephenie Meyer’s The Host (futuristic)
Rachel Cohn’s You Know Where to Find Me (young adult)
Michelle Maddox’s Countdown (futuristic)

I highly recommend all of these books. And as you can tell by their genres, three out of those six books are futuristics.

So now’s the time for you to bring out the A+ books you’ve read so far this year. What are their genres? Are you surprised? Have you learned anything new about your favourite kind of books?

  1. Hey, Tez. My blog was rated PG. I had death in there 3x and hurt in there 1x. Very interesting!

    An A+ book I read this year was A Woman in Berlin. It’s an anonymous diary of a woman living in Berlin during the end of WWII. It was very depressing, but an excellent book. It’s been quite a while since I finished it and I’m still thinking about it.

  2. You’re a school teacher; you have to watch your language 😉

    Have a lovely day! 🙂
