Ten top books for "X-Files" fans

Sona Charaipotra is a New York City-based writer and editor with more than a decade’s worth of experience in print and online media. For the B & N Teen Blog she tagged ten top books for fans of The X-Files, including:
Adaptation, by Malinda Lo

There’s always been something creepy about birds–and in Malinda Lo’s dark Adaptation, there’s good reason to be freaked. Flocks of them are crashing into planes, causing thousands of people to lose their lives. The country’s on a terror alert, and Reese, after recovering from an accident near the infamous Area 51, returns to a San Francisco on military lockdown to discover she and pal David have changed in inexplicable ways. She’s focused on a blooming relationship with pink-haired Amber, but the men in suits that are stalking her and David put a bit of a damper on things.
Read about the other books on the list.

Adaptation is among Lauren Naturale's top six SF/F novels with non-white protagonists that aren’t by Octavia Butler.
