If You Like...

The awesome folks over at the SFR Brigade have come up with another wicked multi-blog event. This time around, we are listing our, if you like X then check out Y, reading recommendations. Check out my list below, and hop on over to the SFR Brigade as well and see what books the rest of the crew is shouting about!

IF YOU LIKE...

I have read all of the books I'm recommending below, and I wrote one of them. Sorry, had to put at least one of mine it. Still, I stand by all of them. Good reads from some of my favorite authors...and this one chick who's okay I guess. :)

If you liked Grimspace by Anna Aguire, check out Nexus Point by Jaleta Clegg. 
Okay, you guys have heard me rave about these books before, but there are six out now and as much as I loved them all, I LOVE BOOK SIX.
Similarities between the two: good gritty backdrop, detailed world, super fast-paced with lots of alien action.

If you liked Space by James Michener, or anything by Larry Niven, read Rock Killer, by S. Evan Townsend. 
This one kept me up all night.
Similarities: multi-threaded plot, nicely woven together, hard tech scifi, multiple povs.

If you liked C.J. Barry's Unmasked, Unearthed Unetc. series, read Shrouded by Frances Pauli. 
First book in a romantic science fiction series. (COMING IN NOVEMBER)
Similarities: broad universe following a different protagonist and love interest in each book.

If you liked Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, read Sins of the Father by Christopher Kellen.
Similarities: fast paced, military scifi, high tech, action/thriller.
