I should leave reviews on goodreads, but I don’t.
Some definition on genre:
I vastly prefer to read sci-fi and/or fantasy. Of that, I really enjoy hard sci-fi, but that’s not a requirement.
Here’s a list of books and other readings I enjoy:
Sorted by Author
- The Martian is a hard sci-fi book about someone left behind on one of the first missions to Mars, and his struggles to get back home.
- Artemis is a heist novel set in the first city on the moon. Like The Martian, it’s also hard sci-fi.
I really enjoy his Magic 2.0 series, though it does have a significant drop-off in quality. The first two books are amazing, the third is pretty good, but not as good as the previous two. But the reviews for the fourth one have kept me from continuing.
My partner turned me on to her. Her Chronicles of Alsea series is pretty great, though at times it reads like the fan fiction it grew out of. They’re still highly worth reading.
- HFY is a subreddit where people share stories sci-fi/fantasy stories where humans are the badasses. Usually by picking one particular trait of humans and overexagerrating it to give them an advantage over other species.
