I'm looking for a few Sci Fi series to read.
I've seen most of the well known series like revelation space, vorkosigan, forever war, foundation, expanse, honor harrington, foreigner, etc.
I'm looking for some good series, but lesser known. Something that I might not have caught on a blog list, or a bookstore list. Any genre is fine. I prefer Adventure, Opera, and Military. I still like the other sci fi, just stating a preference. The only genre that I tend to shy away from a little bit is hard sci fi.
I've been searching google and am just coming up a little empty. It seems like every list is pretty much the same, listing all the same big well-known series, but nothing else.
Thanks for any help, or suggestions.
I’m currently reading The Hobbit to my daughter. She loves it, but we’ll be done by the end of the week. I’m not sure yet if I want to commit to the entire LOTR trilogy after this just yet. Any other high fantasy series I should look into? Most of the stuff I read is a bit too advanced or mature for a first grader.
I'm looking for a fiction book that has a heavy emphasis on nature/the beauty and love for nature. The vibe should be cozy and just wholesome.
For example i really love Heidi, although it's a children's book, but it just gives me this feeling of wanting to just go to the mountains and live there right now, and just touches my heart... so this is the kind of feeling i want to get from reading the book :)
I've read "where the Crawdad's sing" already, and liked it, although didn't love it, something was missing. (just in case someone was gonna recommend it )
TiA for Tips :)
I love reading classics but I have also been wanting to read books that are super underrated but restricted to what I have mentioned in the title. So I would love to have some suggestions on what I can read next?
For reference (idk if this'll help lol) I am halfway through Mayor of Casterbridge my Thomas Hardy and I am liking it
Everyone knows that power is not only a necessary material for the functioning of any society, but also one of the known poisons for the human soul.
It's sad, pathetic, and sometimes dangerous to see a person holding the power that he/she psychologically doesn't deserve.
I have noticed that corrupt officials, great historical figures, arrogant teachers, abusive parents suffer from this. Therefore, I always respect people who are able to resist such a temptation and use power with full responsibility.
I would like to ask you to leave in the comments the names of fiction or nonfiction books in which this topic is well disclosed and there are solutions to such problems.
I've been finding it difficult for a long time to find new black authors and series featuring black main characters. Every site I seem to go to lists the exact same books/authors. Can anyone suggest me something new?
I've read from the following authors already:
Walter Mosley - Easy Rawlins and Leonid Mcgill books
Glenville Lovell - Blades Overstreet books
Chester Himes - If he holler let him go
Dwayne Alexander Smith - Forty Acres
Thomas Mullen (not black but writes a good black main character) - Dark town series
Persia Walker - Harlem redux
