I had so much fun sharing my top ten list of non-fiction books that I thought I'd throw out another one to see what would happen. I also want to say a big Thank You! to everyone who shared their own personal lists. I added several titles to my Need-to-Read list, and that's always a good thing!
This time, I'm going to share my ten favorite Sci-Fi and/or dystopian novels. I've had a penchant for well-written "end of the world" tales since I was a teenager, although I'm not quite sure why. Probably because they're the ultimate in survival tales. No matter what gets thrown at us humans, we're determined to live. Half the list I've loved for decades which means they struck a very deep chord within me.
Without further adieu, I'm going to share the titles with you. The only order they're in is the order in which they popped into my mind. If you click on the caption beneath the book cover, you'll be taken to Amazon to read more about it.

It's going to be interesting to find out how many of you mystery lovers will have anything to do with Science Fiction and/or dystopian novels. The way I look at it, many of the books in this list I've compiled have had something go wrong, and it's up to the characters to come up with deductions and solutions. Yup, just an offshoot of my passion for solving mysteries!
Now my burning questions are: how many of you read Sci-Fi or dystopian novels? Have you read any of the books on my list? Which ones did you like? Did I leave any of your favorites off my list? Please share-- you know how I love to add to my Need-to-Read list!
