Top Ten Tuesday logo

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl offers a topic of our choosing relating to genre of our choosing. Here are ten works of speculative fiction (the catch-all for fantasy, science fiction, dystopian, and other novels of “not the real world”) that are on my to-be-read list:

  1. A Restless Truth by Freya Marske
  2. In the Lives of Puppets by T.J. Klune
  3. Kelly Barnhill’s When Women Were Dragons
  4. The Spare Man by Mary Robinette Kowal
  5. Dhonielle Clayton’s The Marvellers
  6. Angie Thomas’ Nic Blake and the Remarkables
  7. Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
  8. The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna
  9. A.J. Sherwood’s How I Stole the Princess’s White Knight and Turned Him to Villainy
  10. Red Side Story by Jasper Fforde

How about you? Are there other works of speculative fiction you think I should add?

I’m hoping to read some old Ursula Le Guin books this year including The Dispossessed and The Left Hand of Darkness.

I have to admit I read When Women Were Dragons last year and was really disappointed by it, so I hope you enjoy it more. A Restless Truth is on my TBR, one I’m hoping to get to this year.

I have The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches on my TBR. I keep hearing great things about it, so I hope we both enjoy it!
