Sci-Fi Month 2021 - Modern Classic #ThrowbackThursday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  In honor of Sci-Fi Month 2021 (Image credit: Photo by Liu Zishan on with a quote from Babylon's Ashes by James S.A. Corey), I'm taking part in the Sci-Fi Month Challenge and I'm sharing Modern Classic #ThrowbackThursday (at least 10 years old).  My picks down below are three favorite YA sci-fi novels released in 2011.  I feel like I don't talk enough about how much I love them anymore in comparison to other releases of the same year.  Plus, it seems like you just don't hear about as much any more either.  Anyway, without further ado, here we go in alphabetical order:

Across the Universe (Across the Universe #1) by Beth Revis - I know this has a couple of other well known cover designs, but this is my favorite of them. If you the styles of Amie Kaufman and Marissa Meyer, then Beth Revis is an author you'll have to try.  Also, I really wish that this is what the movie Passengers could have been.

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands #1) by Moira Young - This series opener is absolutely fantastic.  I especially loved the audiobook production.  If you like your YA post-apocalyptic dystopian with a hearty helping of Mad Max and the western this is a must read.

Goliath (Leviathan #3) by Scott Westerfeld - This alternate WWI history steampunk series finale ended so well.  The whole series is fantastic, but it really went out on a high note.  

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


  1. It's hard to believe these are 10 years old, I remember when Across the Universe and Blood Red Road came out😁

  2. That's my favorite Universe cover too.

    1. I wish they had continue with it for the other two books. :)

  3. Whoa, Blood Red Road takes me back. I don't remember it too clearly, but I do remember it was during the golden age of dystopias.
