Top Ten Tuesday: Sci-Fi Books I Want My Future Descendants To Read


Happy Tuesday and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week's topic is Books I Want My Children (Or Nieces, Nephews, Godchildren, etc.) - since it's Sci-Fi Month, hosted by Rinn Reads & Over the Effing Rainbow, I'm giving my list a sci-fi spin.  I'm sharing Sci-Fi Books I Want My Future Descendants To Read, both recent releases and classics.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title and broken down by recent releases and classics (the titles are linked either to my review or to Goodreads):

Recent Releases:


Dark Matter by Blake Crouch




The Martian by Andy Weir


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


Saga by Brian K. Vaughan &Fiona Staples

Classics:


Frankenstein by Marry Shelley


The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood


The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams


Kindred by Octavia E. Butler


Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

What books do you want your descendants to read?  As always thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!
