Book recommendations

Help!! I read my last book and need a new one to read ASAP. I like fantasy and sci-fi books. If you wondered, yes, books are my life.


#2

Harry Potter (my favorite), but depends on your age group. Young adult, children, or teen


#3

Oh gosh, there are so many great authors that I barely know where to start. If you like science fiction, Elizabeth Moon’s Vatta’s War series is amazing.

Robin McKinley’s “The Hero and the Crown” and “The Blue Sword” are both fantastic Fantasy books.

Personally, I’d like to know what authors in those genres that you enjoy before I start rattling off a huge list of books that I felt were a great read.

Oops sorry I didn’t say I read adult books. It would take me all day to list and remember favorite authors.


#5

Some of the best written books I have read were geared towards young adults, Harry Potter, ReadyPlayerOne, Enders Game, etc…

Seems, to me, that most of the “adult” writers go into too much depth (Clancy,Old Dude writing Game of Thrones, etc), make them all about murder, blood, end of the world, etc, or straight up romance/borderline porn.

The young adult genre tends to stick to telling fantastic stories without so much of that other stuff. You may like the other stuff, but if I wanted blood, death, etc, I could watch the nightly news :rofl:

Finn Fancy Necromancy

:face_with_hand_over_mouth:

But for real, it’s funny fantasy, author is Randy Henderson.

And, if you haven’t, N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy is a fantastic science fiction series. Actually I liked everything of hers that I’ve read.

Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series, you know, because dragons!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians
The Heroes of Olympus
Pretty much every book by Rick Riordan.
There are also like five long chapter books in each series so these should last you awhile. They’re long books, but they are super entertaining. They’re even better if you like Greek Mythology.
