Love isn't the only thing worth writing about. A story doesn't have to center around a couple in order for it to hold your interest. Here are a few science fiction novels for women who are sick of reading about romance:
1 11/22/63 by Stephen King
This is my favorite of all of King's books. It's a long one, but it's definitely worth the read if you're interested in time travel. It's about a man who goes back to the 60s in order to stop the assassination of President Kennedy. Don't worry, because you don't have to be a history buff in order to enjoy this book, because there's less politics involved than you'd think.
2 What Went Wrong by Various Authors (including Me)
If you'd rather read a few short stories instead of reading an entire book, then you should check out this anthology. There are plenty of intense stories hidden inside. The one I've written is about a girl who lost her parents at a young age and tries to use time travel in order to change their fate.
3 Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
If you like the type of science fiction that deals with space, ships, and aliens, then you're going to enjoy this book. It was written back in 1985 and tells the story of Ender, a young boy who is a tactical genius. The world needs his expertise in order to win against their enemies, the buggers.
4 Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
This is one of my favorite books of all time. It's about a world where people can basically live out their entire life online. They can hook themselves up to a computer and turn into their online persona, where they look and act different. If you're addicted to your laptop, then you're going to wish you lived in this society. Even better, if you're a big fan of video games, then you're going to love all of the references written on the page.
5 Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
You've heard of Ray Bradbury before. He's one of the greatest authors of all time. If you want to read one of his works, then you should start by picking up this book. It's about a future society where books are illegal and get burned if they're found in someone's home.
6 Invasion of the Body Snatchers by Jack Finney
If you like horror movies or the concept of an alien invasion, then you should definitely pick up a copy of this book. It's about a town where people are changing. It's hard to tell that they're acting differently, but their loved ones are able to sense the small change. Of course, that small change has a huge impact on their world.
7 Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson
Do you like stories about robots rising up and taking over the world? Then you're going to enjoy this book. If you love zombie stories, then you'll probably be a fan of this book too, because a lot of the same themes are explored. Humans have to work together in order to save their race. Otherwise, the robots will remain in control.
Now you can put your romance novels down and read something different for a change. What's your favorite science fiction book?
