My husband Tom is a non-reader, but since I know his other interests pretty well, I wanted to put together a list of books he might actually enjoy! And if your husband or boyfriend is more into video games and sci-fi movies than he is into books, he might like these as well!
I don't want to give too much away, but the sci-fi twists in Dark Matter are so amazing and fun and totally up my husband's alley. I may have spoiled most of the book for him as I was reading it, but still!
Tom is a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Doctor Who: 12 Doctors 12 Stories would be perfect for him. Twelve different authors have each written a short story based on one of the Doctor's regenerations. So, he would get to read about each Doctor with a very manageable page count!
So this one is still on my TBR, but having read a couple reviews and the synopsis, I think Tom would really love Ready Player One - I mean, video games and 80s pop culture are two of his greatest loves (besides me, of course!). Oh, and Wil Wheaton narrates the audiobook? He's definitely in.
Felicia Day is the ultimate guys' girl - she's gorgeous, she's smart, AND she can talk video games with the best of them. I wanted to include her memoir You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) on this list because I know Tom loves Felicia from her appearances on Supernatural, one of his favorite shows, and some gaming videos, and I thought he would appreciate reading her story!
We really enjoyed watching the movie version of The Martian and I think if Tom were stuck somewhere with a dead phone battery, he would enjoy the book version, as well!
