Strange Worlds Sci-fi Book Club Reading List 2014-15

The Beautiful Land - Alan   Averill The Shining Girls - Lauren Beukes Raising Stony Mayhall - Daryl Gregory The Martian - Andy Weir Ancillary Justice - Ann Leckie

It's so funny to already be thinking about book club selections for summer of 2015, but it's that time again. My group picked their list for the coming year and I couldn't be more excited. So many goodies to look forward to. This past year we focused a lot on setting and world building, and next year we plan to focus on character. Heroes, Villians, & Monsters is our official theme. Did I mention I'm excited? I really really am.
