It’s Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is:
Top Ten Books Books Set In The Future
I love books about the future. Especially space. I love seeing what things stick and what things evolve. I love seeing how our customs/ideas get twisted and changed over the years. It makes me think of what we think about the past now and what really happened. Like in the future what will historians say about ipods? Will they be mind control devices or something the ancient people used to plug in with others… You get the idea. Whether it is pretty or a totalitarian society, I love that little glimpse into what could be. I actually have 13 this week, because there were so many good choices. SO, without further ado, here are my
Top Ten Thirteen Books Set In The Future
1. These Broken Stars
Two strangers from two different worlds… The daughter of a rich space pioneer and a poor solider deserted on an unknown planet. The two have to learn to work together, survive, and figure out the mysteries of the world they crashed into.
In a world where love is a disease, will you take the cure or become infected?
3. The Hunger Games
To atone for the sin of trying to overthrow a government, the society sends 12 boys and 12 girls to sacrifice each year. Only one can survive.
4. Across the Universe
A young boy who will one day lead a ship of people and a young girl woken after 300 years of sleep. The two will come together to unlock the mysteries of their current home (a spaceship) and their future home (a new, undiscovered planet).
5. Shatter Me
A young girl with the power to kill with one touch. She will change the world.
6. The Knife of Never Letting Go
A young boy in a society of men who hear every thought. What happens when he finds someone whose thoughts he can’t hear… And who is a girl?
In a world where pretty means perfection, would you choose to be who you are, even if it meant staying ugly forever?
8. Inside Out
In a world inside, can there every really be a way out? And what will we find when we do?
In a world where the young can be unwound, what lengths would you go to so you could stay in one piece?
If the government could pick your entire life, how far would you go to make your own choices?
There is no world above. Underground is the only safe place… Or is it?
Faction before blood… Selflessness, Peace, Intelligence, Bravery, or Honesty — which do you choose?
They sent us here to colonize a new planet… They gave us the knowledge we needed to prepare the planet, but what else are they putting in our minds that we didn’t ask for?
So, that’s it. What about you? What setting did you pick this week?
