It's so hard! I don't mind changing my mind. I would read a good Dystopian, too. Not sure if that makes your decision any easier though! :lol:

I went ahead and voted for sci-fi/dystopian.

I've been meaning to read 1984, or Fahrenheit 541, so I can do that, or I can flip it and read Contact, or finally get around to The Martian! :mrgreen: 8)

I switched my vote to SciFi/Dystopian. I haven't actually read Fahrenheit 541 and have been meaning to, so I would interested in that, too. :D

I'm attempting to make this year about getting to all the books I've been putting off. Never going to get to everything, but I'm doing well so far. :D

I thought that books made into movies would be fun, but I guess I was the only one that thought that. :roll:
