I specifically asked for fiction, sci-fi and fantasy titles, because I spend a lot of my life consuming non-fiction / pop-sci writing. Unsurprisingly - because I find people are generally very generous with their recommendations - I got lots of wonderful replies. So many, in fact, that I thought I'd collate them all into a spreadsheet (with links), and share them here.
Access the sheet (>60 books!): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tThX-qeS6Lhttqx9mFVAHy7snd2R4Gi5HrTbfOuBFNs/edit?usp=sharing
Some of the books / series I'm personally most excited to read include
- The Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers https://www.otherscribbles.com/#/thelongway/
- The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson https://www.brandonsanderson.com/the-stormlight-archive-series/
- Laura Jean McKay’s "The Animals in That Country" https://scribepublications.com.au/books-authors/books/the-animals-in-that-country-9781925849530
