I have been doing a lot of reading recently but because I can't just go browsing in the library anymore I have been having trouble finding good books to read. Do you have any good Sci-Fi/Dystopian book recommendations? Thanks!
That's a genre I also enjoyed when I was a young adult. Two books (well, one is a series) that pop up off the top of my head are the Insignia trilogy and Rash. I found both of those by browsing through my local library, and their covers happened to catch my eye. Obviously, if you haven't read 1984, that's the prototypical book for that genre and should be read at some point.
The Girl with All the Gifts, M.R. Carey
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, Becky Chambers
Stories of Your Life and Others, Ted Chiang (this is a book of SF stort stories)
Start there, then report back.
The second book in that series that starts with Small, Angry Planet is set for the first half in a seriously dystopian corner of the galaxy. It's pretty brutal.
I've started to read The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and am really enjoying it. Thanks for the recommendation!
I thought you might! The whole series is great so far (four books are out with more to come, I'd guess.)
There's a book I really like called "Voyage to Alpha Centauri" by Michael O'Brien. It's heavily Christian sci-fi, so bear that in mind.
