Sci-Fi Month 2019 - Top Ten Tuesday: Classic Sci-Fi Books I Need To Read



Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week I'm doing something a bit different for Sci-Fi Month 2019 (Image credit: Photo by Sebastien Decoret on 123RF.com with a quote from This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone).  In the spirit of the month, I'm sharing my top ten Classic Sci-Fi Books I Need To Read.  Somehow I've missed out on these so far and one of these days, I need to finally see what the big deal is about all of them once and for all.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:


Brave New World by Aldous Huxley


Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson


Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams


Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick


Doomsday Book by Connie Willis


Dune by Frank Herbert


The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick


Ringworld by Larry Niven


Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut


Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein


Have you read any of these books?  Are you taking part in Sci-Fi Month this year?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  5. I literally just finished reading A Stranger in a Strange Land. I love it. Heinlein is difficult to get into, so I listened to the audiobook. It was the perfect way to injest it and I highly recommend.

  12. So many of the titles you've mentioned are books that I really want to read too! I've had Brave New World and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep on my list for a long time and I constantly try to get around to them, but keep forgetting, oops.

  13. I’ve read Brave New World! It’s one of the few books that school forced on me that I actually liked.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I'm surprised that was one I did have as assigned reading.

  14. I enjoyed Brave New World, although the beginning is a bit jarring and a little sink or swim, in my opinion. Hope you enjoy it when you get around to reading it. Dirk Gently is on my TBR, too!
