Booklist recently unveiled their Top 10 SF/Fantasy/Horror reading lists of 2016, including these Macmillan titles:
Top 10 SF/Fantasy: 2016 (full list)
ARABELLA OF MARS by David D. Levine
The alternate-world science is novel, and the plot is thrilling in this Verne-inspired tale, a joyous throwback to sf adventure of old.
Top 10 Horror: 2016 (full list)
PRESSURE by Brian Keane
Carrie free-dives deep underwater to help determine why the ocean floor is collapsing. As if that’s not scary enough, she encounters a creature that destroys everything in its path. A gory, winning horror thriller—a different kind of beach read, you might say.
Top 10 Youth SF/Fantasy/Horror on Audio (full list)
CARRY ON by Rainbow Rowell, read by Euan Morton
Dramatizing a Harry Potter–like world filled with wizards, vampires, ghosts, pixies, and shape-shifting demons coexisting with “Normals,” Morton displays a chimerical skill at voicing characters and captivates with his humor- and horror-steeped performance.
CARRY ON was also mentioned in Michael Cart’s Carte Blanche column on Speculative Fiction and LGBTQ Literature.
Core Collection: Space Operas (full list)
THE DARK BETWEEN THE STARS by Kevin J. Anderson
Anderson (also famous for his many series titles) hits it out of the galaxy again: space opera doesn’t get much more exciting, or much more richly populated with alien races, technologies, and cultures, than it does in this sprawling, engrossing epic. A joint exploratory mission to the edge of the galaxy reveals an alien presence, one so powerful that it could conceivably wipe out all life in the galaxy.
EARTH UNAWARE by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston
The beginning of this prequel series to the ever-popular ENDER’S GAME finds young Victor Delgado risking his life to warn earth of the impending invasion.
REDSHIRTS by John Scalzi
Ensign Andrew Dahl, assigned to the spaceship Intrepid, begins to notice that things are a bit weird. His shipmates frequently behave in an unpredictable or unmotivated manner, and problems are often resolved by the use of the Box, a mysterious vessel that, when you input a seemingly unsolvable problem, spits out a resolution after a suitably dramatic pause. As he tries to figure out what the heck is going on around him, Andy discovers a truth so staggering that he has no choice but to believe it. readmoreremove
Sorry we missed y’all at #ewgcya earlier this week, but we loved seeing some of you at School Library Journal‘s Day of Dialog.
We’re especially happy that some of our favorite YA titles of the year are available this month for you to put in the hot little hands of your patrons!
IF I WAS YOUR GIRL by Meredith Russo
IT’S FINALLY HERE! Two starred reviews for Meredith Russo’s hugely important transgender romance. “Russo has written a story that many trans teens—and adults—have been wanting: a sweet, believable romance that stokes the fires of hope without devolving into saccharine perfection or horrific tragedy. Above all, this is a necessary, universal story about feeling different and enduring prejudices, and it’s full of love, hope, engaging writing, and truth.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
SUMMER DAYS & SUMMER NIGHTS: Twelve Love Stories, edited by Stephanie Perkins
***FOUR STARRED REVIEWS!!!*** ‘Scuse us while we swoon over these twelve romantic summer stories by bestselling young adult authors, including Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, and Veronica Roth! “These big-name authors deliver a collection that scorches as surely as any day in the sun.” — Booklist, starred review
THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN ME IS YOU by Lily Anderson
Stephanie Perkins meets 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU in this fresh, romantic debut young adult novel loosely based on Much Ado About Nothing. “Readers familiar with Shakespeare will enjoy Anderson’s riffs on the original’s plot points as Trixie and Ben get their nerdily-ever-after ending.” — Publishers Weekly
INVISION by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Chronicles of Nick #7)
It’s not easy being the heir of a demon overlord, but Nick Gautier is determined to thwart his destiny and get into a good college. Instead he has to battle the demons within that are far deadlier and more treacherous than any he’s battled before—oh, and his arch nemesis who’s back and determined to reclaim his place as the harbinger for Armageddon.
