*shameless plug* I have the first of my fantasy trilogy out. It’s called The Thornless Rose: Fire Blush. My main character is named Viviana, a lord’s daughter from the Kingdom of Dragoonus. She has some amazing abilities but she is scared she will kill someone she loves if she doesn’t get herself under control. Check it out at https://www.amazon.com/Thornless-Rose-Fire…/dp/B01LYJ1MQ3
The Novice. The Summoner series by Taran Matharu
http://bewareofmonsters.com/ Several series there, the PROJECT series eventually results in an Avengers Level Event that brings in SEVERAL characters from many of his books.
Pierce Brown: Red Rising
Patrick Rothfuss: Kingkiller’s Chronicles
R. A. Salvatore’s books
Terry Pratchett&Stephen Baxter: The Long Earth
Red rising and the kingkiller chronicles were amazing. I’ll definitely check out the others.
The Morcai Battalion Series by Diana palmer
Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s series
Soooo good. Classic.
If you want something to keep you occupied for awhile, Battlefield Earth is quite the read if you can jump right over the Scientology nonsense and just enjoy it as a fiction. I read it for about two years before finally finishing
Read it. It was awesome.
Basically anything by Brandon Sanderson – mistborn first, then stormlight archives. Then his kids books, if you really enjoy his writing.
Stormlight Archive is stunning. Struggling to get into Mistborn at mo though.
i started with mistborn – it’s worth sticking out the first hundred pages or so for the rest of the series. It’s one of my top three favorite series of all time.
I am about 200 pages into The Final Empire. Starting to get better, not 100% sure about the allomancy stuff. I do like Vin and Kelsier tho ?
allomancy, feruchamy and hemalurgy. There are three forms of magic loosely based around the same principal.
I will stick with it, thanks ?
Did the mistborn. I read a lot from the overdrive library app. Number 2 from stormlight has been checked out for sooooo long?
@Joshua there are something like 9 sanderson books in the mistborn world – have you read them all?
No I think 3
well, maybe only 6 currently published… 3 in the ancient world, and three as westerns.
WHAT? Westerns? That sounds amazing.
@Joshua they were! Follows a sort of Marshall and his rough around the edges deputy. Wax and Wayne.
im all over that
The Silo Trilogy by Hugh Howey?
I’ll look into that thanks ?
Ken Baker I thought it was pretty good too, especially if you like distopias. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silo_(series)
I do! I’ve been looking for a new audio book, I’ll jump into that.
The Silo series is one of my favourite series of all time! Hugh Howey is self published and is sooooooo good!
Yeah agree whole heartedly. I read Wool and invested in signed copies of the Wool, Shift and Dust. So, so good. He also responds to people on Twitter too 🙂
I got a signed copy of Dust, and he sent some of his early draft pages from Shift, and a card from a con. I was so excited!!
That’s awesome! I love it when authors interact with their readers ?
Mine, of course: https://www.amazon.com/Levi-Garret-Space-Detective-Deception-ebook/dp/B011HLAUW8/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
There are two in this series with a ridiculous third taking shape. I never intended this to be a series. https://www.amazon.com/Janitor-51-Saving-World-Midnight-ebook/dp/B01MRCWSN0/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
You should get Nosco Publishing’s Summary of Ernest Cline’s #1 New York Times-bestseller “Ready Player One”
It is currently completely free on Amazon. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DM635KG
Brain Ships by Mercedes Lackey. Also Anything by James P Hogan. And the Stainless Steel Rat series.
The Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons is the ultimate sci fi fantasy
The Thomas Covenant Series, 10 books, by Stephen R. Donaldson.
If the Sci-Fi you enjoy is military, I highly recommend Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series. If you like fantasy, you can’t go wrong – in my opinion – with Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series; or the Dragonlance series; or – and this is one of my very favourites – Michael Scott Rohan’s Winter of the World series.
I’ve read so much sf, it’s hard to come up with a “favorite” series. I’m not so much on Orson Scott Card, because of his controversial and public statements. If you haven’t read Dune, the first three books are solid, the series starts going downhill after that. (IMO)
Ted Dekker has a couple of series mostly fantasy as opposed to sf but great reads!
My favorite genres, too! They’re also the genres I write!
My favorites are the Ender’s Game series (both quintets) by Orson Scott Card and The Worthing Saga also by Card, the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, and Doomsday Book, To Say Nothing of the Dog, and Blackout/All Clear, each by Connie Willis.
The Joe Ballen series by @David. http://davidmkelly.net/
I really liked the Old Man War series.
Elizabeth Moon has a series called The Deeds of Paksenarrion it is sort of like LOTR
Dune–but only the original trilogy.
I just finished The Poppy War by RF Kuang. Altho it is a story about a young girl. It is definitely not YA. It’s dark and brutal… with lots of triggers.
It just came out the first week in May… if Kuang is not nominated for every SFF newcomer award this year… I will be disappointed. I thot it was an amazing read. I was even more impressed… when I found out how young she is
Mercedes lackey and her valdemar series
Game of Thrones
Wheel of Time
Dune and there are 14 books in the series!
TekWar by William Shatner
Red Rising series is one of my favorites
Just started Leviathan Wakes and I like it as well
oh god I feel guilty that you all read so much and i havent picked a book in a week ?
Hyperion Cantos is the best i have read so far. 4 books serial. Start with Hyperion by Dan Simons
I’ve really enjoyed everything written by Robin Hobb, the Liveship series, and the Assassin’s Apprentice series are really good!
The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, Kushiel’s Legacy by Jacqueline Carey, The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.
I’m currently reading the Ember in the Ashes series by Saba Tahir, it’s amazing.
Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb, Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, Nearly any book by:Charles de Lint, Mercedes Lackey, or Tamora Pierce.
The TV show for The Expanse is mindblowingly good so I can only imagine the books are even better
Red Rising series by Pierce Brown.
Darkover Marion Zimmerman Bradley
All of the dragon lance series.you get to read a myriad of diverse authors
What kind of sci-fi do you prefer? You like the hardcore stuff like hard SF or space opera? Or the softer side of things like planetary romance? Maybe something dystopian or post-apocolyptic? Near future stories and/or cyberpunk? Books with mature characters or coming of age stories with teens? I see Hyperion recommended in the comments and I definitely second that if you haven’t yet read it! It’s space opera, so a lot more soft when it comes to the science but it’s got some awesome concepts. Much more friendly for fantasy readers to get into, too.
