The Aliens Are Coming! by Ben MillerWell, the first like 175 pages of this was riveting, I could not put it down. If you are looking for information on how scientists are trying to find or contact actual alien life (rather then just stories of abductions) this is the book for you.
There were so many theories and experiments I was unaware of. While a great deal of the discussion revolved around where microbiological alien life may be, there is also discussion of more complex life.
I did not know much about SETI entering the book, and this really opened my eyes.
The authors writing style is conversational and witty, while still giving you a nice overlay of complex scientific theories and ideas.
So why did I only give this 3 stars. Well right after about page 175 the book really bogs down in complicated and boring discussion of equations that relate to the chances of life developing on earth. It then moves into more earth focused science theories and seemed to go on a 75 page tangent with little to no connection to the search for alien life.
The book tries to pull it back by discussing animals on earth that may also have language or forms of civilization, and how until we can understand these life forms better, understanding aliens will be a struggle. However, this small section pops up only in the last 20 or so pages, and still isnt a strong finish, especially when compared to the amazing beginning of the book.
I would recommend this book to people looking to read about the search for alien life, but I would stop after the 3rd or 4th chapter, and maybe skip to the final section.

7 Books to Read If You Love Aliens
Leslie Kean's book is notable both for her prior experience as an esteemed investigative journalist and the breadth of strange and compelling UFO cases it explores. Kean's book is well-written, spooky, and completely un-put-downable. Keel explores these and other, seemingly related strange events. The detail presented is almost overwhelming, and many readers will be hard-pressed to deny that something beyond a mere weather balloon was found that day. Whitley Strieber's account of his and his wife's repeated experiences with alien abduction — and their subsequent interviews with counselors and hypnotists — has drawn enduring, international interest and acclaim for its careful open-mindedness, the stirring writing style, and the vivid, convincing detail in which Strieber relays his story.

So what is Area 51? Great question. Heard of Roswell, New Mexico? Heard of the old TV show Roswell? I am very confident in your ability to do more research. In Sanctuary , prison-guard-in-training, Kenzie, is taken hostage by the superpowered criminal teens of the Sanctuary space station—and then has to band together with them when the station is attacked by mysterious creatures. A worthy friend.
Alien invasions usually involve extraterrestrials arriving at Earth to destroy, enslave, or eat humans. It looks like a good deal at first: a peaceful alien invasion by the mysterious Overlords, whose arrival ends all war, helps form a world government, and turns the planet into a near-utopia. However, they refuse to answer questions about themselves and govern from orbiting spaceships. Wells appears to have enjoyed the idea of obliterating his neighborhood. In the year , the Second Empire of Man spans hundreds of star systems, thanks to the faster-than-light Alderson Drive. No other intelligent beings have ever been encountered, not until a light sail probe enters a human system carrying a dead alien. The probe is traced to the Mote, an isolated star in a thick dust cloud, and an expedition is dispatched.
