Niki’s Top Twelve Must-Read Books!

top ten tuesday

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

 This weeks Post was supposed to be along the lines of must-read titles that other people have told me about. Because I haven’t yet read many of the titles that made that list (and therefore can’t personally vouch for their awesomeness) I decided to take a spin on the topic and present my own list of must-reads. I realize this must look similar to many of my other lists, but I just can’t can’t seem to stop raving about my all-time favorite titles. Now, of course, this list is only helpful if you’re a speculative fiction fanatic like me. ;)

Niki’s Top Twelve Must-Read Books:


 Science Fiction (specifically Space Opera):

Young Adult:

 Urban Fantasy:

These titles have all earned their spots in my favorites list and are usually the first books I recommend to new readers of their given genre.

What books would make your list?

  1. I like Assassin’s Apprentice; Survival is great (and I was amused by the oft-repeated complaint from the protagonist’s friend Emily — “There’s no sex in this book!” — because I cannot help but think the author herself was commenting on readers who demand lots of sex scenes in every single book they read); Grimspace looks quite interesting, and I think I may go buy a copy later today.

    Books that would make my “must read” list… Falcon, by Emma Bull; A Civil Campaign, by Lois McMaster Bujold; This Alien Shore, by C. S. Friedman… I could probably think of several other books to add to this list, but these are the ones that always come to mind immediately.
