Top Ten Books If You Like The X-Files

Top Ten Tuesday
Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers post a top ten list related to a specific theme. This week's theme is Top Ten Books If You Like The X-Files. I apologize for no links this week. I got a cold this week, and I am spending most of my time sleeping. :(

I loved The X-Files when I was in high school and college. I still enjoy the show, but the fervor I had for the show has dimmed in the last few years. If you were (or still) an X-Phile, you might enjoy the following books!

1. Newflesh Trilogy by Mira Grant
If the conspiracies were your favorite part about The X-Files, Grant's trilogy might be for you. Plus the series has zombies!

2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Did you enjoy the cheesy and fun episodes? Adams' series is good fun.

3. The Silver Linings Playbooks by Matthew Quick
Were you a Mulder-Scully shipper, especially later in the series when they were both a bit damaged? Quick's book is about two people with troubled lives figuring their lives out.

4. The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken
This series has all of the thrills of one of the more exciting episodes, plus there are kids with psychic abilities. Mulder would have loved this series.

5. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
This is a fun urban fantasy series with a crime-solving wizard.

6. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
If you want a scarier version of the episode in which Scully and Mulder hang out with Christmas-y ghosts, this is the book for you.

7. Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach
Roach explores the science of ghosts. I bet Scully would have loved reading this out loud to Mulder.

8. The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton
Any of Crichton's early SF works feel fairly similar to the scary early episodes of The X-Files.

9. Among Others by Jo Walton
Scully always looked for a scientific reason for everything; Mulder looked for a fantastical reason for everything. Among Others can be read through either Scully's or Mulder's POV.

10. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Was your favorite part of the show The Lone Gunmen? I feel the trio would have loved this book with all of the video game and 80s references.
