Science Fiction Games

Years ago my husband told me I would like this science fiction book that he loved and thought I would enjoy as well.

I don't care for science fiction and could probably count on one hand how many times I've read this genre .

It turned out that I enjoyed Enders Game by Orson Scott Card a lot more than I thought I would.
I was right there with that Wiggins boy.
I read another one of Cards books but it did nothing for me, so I was done with science fiction.

Then a few months ago I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and really, really liked this one.
I loved Katniss, rooting for her the whole time.

I realized that the two science fiction books -I like have to do with GAMES .

Yeah I like GAMES.

When I was told the premise of both these books I really wasn't interested (come on - a game to the death) but read them anyway and ended up liking them.

Haven't read Collins 2nd book Catching Fire- Doesn't have GAME in the title.

Just kidding, I'm waiting to read it in the summer right before her third one comes out.

So any other GAME books out there?


  1. wish I had waited to read it...I liked them both but I'm anxious for the finale!! Have you read THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett? It was our book club read this month, bet you'd like it!!!

  2. I loved THE HELP. My favorite book last year. In fact I'm reviewing it for our book club in March.

  3. I was in the 5th grade the last (and only) time I read science fiction. Maybe it is time to give it another try.

  4. Ender's game is one of my favorite books, talk Agirl into reading it too,will ya?

    don't know many from that genre but I did enjoy teh first few books from AMONG THE HIDDEN
