Book Recomendations

Here are some stories that, as a reader, I love. (I don’t personally know any of these authors, though I’ve met some briefly online/IRL. I just love their writing.)

 

The Pillars of Reality series and the sequel Legacy of Dragons series by Jack Campbell

I’m not someone who’s prone to overstatement. This is the best novel series in human history.

 

The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher

The epitome of urban fantasy, as far as I’ve seen. I love the intricate plots, the humor, and Michael and Thomas.

 

Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson

Maybe the best superhero books I’ve ever read.

 

Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld

I love character-in-disguise stories. This one’s got a girl dressed as a boy, a romance/friendship, cool worldbuilding, and exciting action.

 

Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer

Meyer’s got a very interesting imagination. I like seeing her take on familiar tropes. And I love Carlisle. Although I think the genderbend version was even better.

 

The Masqueraders by Georgette Heyer

Another great disguise story. The woman dressed as a man is fun. The fact that her brother makes a better female than she does is even better.

 

Sylvester by Georgette Heyer

Why you shouldn’t actually pattern your villains after real people.

 

Grimnoir series by Larry Correia

More great superhero books, this time with alternate history!

 

Monster Hunter International series by Larry Correia

More cool urban fantasy. I love Trip!

 

Vampire Empire series by Clay & Susan Griffith

Humorous steampunk swashbuckling vampire romance adventure. The original trilogy is fantastic. I didn’t read the follow-up.

 

Shifts, Shades, and other fanfic by Fernwithy

Proof that fanfic can be every bit as good as the work it’s inspired by.
