If Fantasy is my favorite genre then Sci-Fi comes in close second. I am a whore for sweeping space operas and new worlds in the form of planets or space crafts.
There are a plethora of amazing YA Sci-Fi books out there – and they don’t have to be your typical Star Trek or Star Wars type. How about retold fairy tales in space? Aliens come to earth with shattering consequences? What about epic journeys across the universe to new planets where conspiracies reign and nothing is what it seems?
The possibilities are endless so let me share with you just a few of my favorites (because let’s face it – this post would go on forever if I could pick all of them!). Hopefully you find something to tickle your fancy and don’t forget to let me know in the comments below your own favorites!
The Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Luxury space liners, terraformed planets, rebellious colonists, conspiracies, kick ass characters and earth shattering romance – what more could you want in a science fiction series?

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Cyborgs, androids, deadly plagues, satellite prisons, lunar people, handsome princes, evil queens and a revolution – fairy tales meet science fiction.
The Lux Serires by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Aliens: luxen, Daedalus, hybrids, secret organizations, romantic tension, consuming love and the sexy Daemon Black – The Lux is a fun and action packed read but really it’s got Daemon Black, need I say more?

5 waves of invasion, extermination, Aliens, rebellion, grim tension, suspence and a fierce fight to save mankind – The 5th Wave is emotional and absolutely mind blowing.
The Host by Stephenie Meyre
