Top Ten RED books

TTT #16

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week’s topic is 10 books that feature your favorite color.  My favorite color has been red for years and years.  Lately I’ve also been loving teal, but red holds a special place in my heart so here we go.  10 books that have red covers in no particular order.  In choosing from my favorites list, I noticed that most of these books are sci-fi and that isn’t my most read genre.  Just an interesting observation.

Wool  by: Hugh Howey  (Silo #1)

This is an interesting and unique sci-fi read.  It was my introduction to Howey’s books, most of which I very much enjoy.

Inkheart  by: Cornelia Funke  (Inkworld #1)

A great children’s fantasy that was made into an okay movie.

Life of Pi  by: Yann Martel

An incredibly unique fantasy/magical realism.  It didn’t sound like something I’d usually enjoy, but I loved it.  I still haven’t seen the movie.

The Martian  by: Andy Weir

Am I veering into orange?  This is a popular sci-fi for a reason.  Who would have thought that I’d enjoy it so much with all of the scientific jargon?  It was also a good movie.

Ready Player One  by: Ernest Cline

Once again, a sci-fi that takes place in the future and includes an extensive virtual reality aspect.  It’s an awesome book and I’m hoping the movie will be good too, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Doctor Sleep  by: Stephen King  (The Shining #2

This is the sequel to The Shining.  Read my review because I really connected with this book and thought it was a great sequel.  I was nervous about reading it, but it didn’t disappoint even though it was very different from The Shining.

Dark Matter  by: Blake Crouch

Once again, I didn’t think I’d enjoy a sci-fi book that relies heavily on the theory of quantum mechanics, but this was an interesting, action-packed book.  Yes, I did read a few articles about quantum mechanics and yes, it’s still hard to wrap my head around.  My brain just doesn’t think that way.

Illuminae  by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff  (Illuminae Files #1)

The first in a very unique sci-fi series that isn’t complete yet.  So far only the first two books have been published and they were both great.

Beneath a Scarlet Sky  by: Mark Sullivan

An historical fiction about the Italian resistance during WWII.  It was so well written and I was glad to read about a part of the war I wasn’t familiar with.

11/22/63  by: Stephen King

I know I’m stretching with the red here, but the red really pops on this cover and it’s a great book.  Once again, it’s a sci-fi that deals with time travel back to 1963 and the assassination of JFK.
