The Best Sci-Fi Novels To Look To The Future

It’s February, and not in accord with T.S. Eliot, in my humble opinion the cruellest month. So what do we do? We look to the future. And perhaps escape the present. With books.

I’m a huge fan of science-fiction – I love all the big franchises, and I’ve read basically all of the novels that have inspired those franchises. But in the midst, I’ve also read some pretty terrible ones, so I decided to save you the time and effort and just curate the best sci-fi novels to read to look to the future and hope for better weather.

Between the hilarious, bombastic, bordering-on-ridiculous ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy,’ and the serious but amazingly written anti-war, ‘Slaughterhouse 5’, there’s a range of books that should suit everybody’s taste, but obviously, I would recommend reading them all. Especially if you’re competing with me to read 100 books this year.

We have some of my favourite YA novels in there, like ‘Chaos Walking’ which has been made into a movie with my personal boyfriend with whom I have a very intimate relationship, Tom Holland. We’ve got ‘Aurora Rising,’ a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ type of adventure where somehow people are both terrible for the job, and perfect for the job.

‘To Sleep In A Sea Of Stars’ looks intimidating, but it’s easy to consume and also absolutely worth the read.

So there you go, the best sci-fi novels to read to escape the monotony of your boring February life. You’re welcome.
