This week's question is...
If you are a fan of science fiction, what is your favorite book? If you haven't read science fiction before, any inkling to? Anything catch your eye?
When I was little (elementary school age), I loved science fiction. Not so much the cheesy alien-invasion ones, but the kind that made your mind implode. I remember one book that I absolutely loved with I was nine was Michael Crichton's Sphere - it's one of the few books I can think of that I was literally incapable of putting down. Seriously, I read it while getting a cavity drilled.
A few years later, I returned to Sphere and was hugely disappointed. It was nothing like I remembered, and I definitely didn't like it anywhere near as much. I found the same problem with other science fiction books and series I used to love, and I stopped reading the genre.
Now I do a few little forays into it. For instance, I really want to read Beth Revis' Across the Universe, and I like books such as I Was a Teenage Popsicle. While I will continue to read a few sci-fi books that catch my eye, I probably won't became the same big fan I used to be.
