Yay Future

Well I don’t read many Sci-Fi books so I’ll just discuss the 50 000 Dystopian books I’ve read over the past three years.

5. The Host by Stephanie Meyer 

I read this WAYY back in the day so the details might be a little fuzzy.  But I found the whole psychological aspect of it really cool and it has some weird romance lemme tell you that.

What’s so futuristic about it? 

So basically Earth is invaded by this alien species who take over human minds (fun!)

Would I want to live in this world?

Of course not. I’m not judging if you want your mind to be tapped into but I’m not good with sharing space so.

4. 1984 by George Orwell 

This was my first book review on this blog! it’s crap but meh. 1984 looks at some very interesting concepts and it’s so chilling to realize the accurateness with which George Orwell was able to predict our lives now.

What’s so futuristic about it?

Except from the fact that the whole book screams FUTURE. But yeah this creepy dude called Big Brother invades everyone’s private space and takes over your life.

Would I want to live in this world?

This is looking pretty bad for Futuristic books but Ill pass on this one as well. Seems pretty oppressive if you ask me.

3. Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu 

I always feel like this series is so under hyped. How do you like the sound of a prodigal protagonist who is also a badass, a murder mystery and some of the most painful romances? READ IT

What’s so futuristic about it? 

It’s basically Dystopian America in ruins and omg the third book features Antarctica whose setting was done so masterfully!

Would i want to live in this want?

Yes since it doesn’t seem too different from the world right now except this deadly plague is spreading but I’d like to be a rich person in this society so I can avoid the plague and go live in Antarctica.

2. The Fifth Wave 

This books gives a pretty accurate representation of what would actually happen if there were to be an alien invasion on Earth. It is thrilling, intense and gory just the way I like it!

What’s so futuristic about it?

It’s set in Post-invasion America and there’s all this advanced technology

Would I want to live in this world?

Heck no! this is the worst one of the lot. Let’s be real I’d probably be dead just by thinking about this world.

1. The Lunar Chronicles 

I’m reading the novella Fairest right now which has left me on a Lunar Chronicles high that’s why this is number one! But seriously fairy tales but futuristic! the world building is amazing honestly.

What’s so futuristic about it?

Robots and hovercrafts and actual travel to the moon and an actual colony on the moon and ahh everything everything is futuristic.

Would I want to live in this world?

You know it doesn’t seem like such a bad world after all, I mean jobs would involve fixing your Android (robot) or delivering vegetables through hovercrafts and yeah ‘satisfied nod’

I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favourite futuristic books. Let me know yours in the comments!

Book reviews

Review: The Scorch Trials

Author: James Dashner7631105

Genre: Young adult-Dystopian

Pages: 360

Summary:

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.

There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.

The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.

There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive

 

Super short review because it might be repetitive after just reviewing the Maze Runner.

It took me a while to properly get into this book as it was extremely slow paced at the start. You know when authors spend 5 pages describing a bedroom, it was kind of like that.

But once the adventure began I did not want to put this book down. It was such a step up from the first book. There was lots of adventure and it was fast paced and thrilling.

Again, the story line of this series is so intriguing and I’m always hungry for new information. But then this new information always ends up making me even more curious and confused but thats okay! its still so cool.

I had the same problem with the characters as in the previous book (read my review here, trust me you want to) . There was just no depth, I think part of the problem is that there isn’t much background to the characters because of them losing their memories and therefore, I just don’t know much about them I guess. There were a few new characters introduced toward whom I have mixed feelings because they did weird things that confused me,

The end bit was stuffed up, I just did not know what to think. Like who am i supposed to believe now? what is happening?
