Crowdsourced book recommendations: fiction, sci-fi and fantasy


As many of you know, I am a fairly heavy user of social media. Twitter was my home for a long time, but for *REASONS*, I have recently moved to Bluesky and Mastodon. I'm still finding my feet on those channels, but so far, so good. With a trip coming up soon, I wanted to load up my Kindle with some new-to-me books, so I put out a call.

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.
