Wow - the entire Sci-Fi / Fantasy section is basically my library.

From a guy who's read pretty much only Sci-Fi / Fantasy since the early 80s here are my thoughts:

Highly Recommend:

We Are Legion (We Are Bob) - really hard to put down once you get into the series. It's also a unique concept and completely different than anything else I've ever read.

The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga - basically the start of the LitRPG movement. Be careful, if you get into this you will start looking at other LitRPG books and will never be able to stop. On Audio the stats and random character progress check-ins can be tedious as it is a minute of just stats on the character, but that's what the FF button is for. Story wise it's an amazing series and another that I absolutely consumed in a short time span.

Dungeon Born - this is where I personally started my LitRPG addiction and quickly moved to The Land afterwards. Sort of an RPG told from the dungeon's POV (who happens to be sentient). There are a lot of spin-off books being written to keep the universe alive. I've listened to them all.

Ascend Online - more LitRPG. I just started book 3. If by now you are addicted this is a good place to venture.


Tentatively Recommended:

All Systems Red - a great series, but not at this price. Honestly should be combined into one volume. I picked up the entire series for cheaper than this and it was worth it, but each book is only around 3-4 hours. Wait for a better sale.

The Name of the Wind - excellent books for 1 & 2, but have been waiting for book 3 since 2011. IIRC personal issues with the author has delayed the conclusion. If book 3 actually gets a release date it easily moves up to the Highly Recommended section, but as it is it lives here now.

Steelheart - basically Sanderson YA. I prefer his other works, and maybe am weary of superhero stories - but it's a good series and I finished them all quickly and enjoyed them.

Theft of Swords - I really enjoyed this series, but it's pretty typical fantasy. I couldn't get into the next series of his which is different characters at a different time in the same world - but this series is worth it.

Homeland - the entire trilogy is awesome, however I'm putting it here since I cannot speak to the audio version as I read these in book form way back when.

Lock In - super interesting concept - protagonist never states their gender and thus the two narrators leaves that up to the reader to decide. How you look at the series can change slightly based on if they are M or F. Personally I chose Will Wheaton's version because he is a good narrator.


These are the ones I'm looking at picking up - if anyone has any thoughts good or bad let me know:

- Awaken Online: Catharsis - more LitRPG to feed my addiction

- Columbus Day

- Storm Front (yes, I've never read anything from the Dresden Files, though I did try his take on fantasy with Furies of Calderon and while I managed to finish the first book I was not compelled to go any further)

- One Second After

- The Quantum Magician

- Servant of the Shard

So many good books for sale, the Bobiverse is a great series and well worth the price. I also picked up the Expanse series as I hear great things.

Does anyone have insight into the: The Broken Earth, series?

Everytime they have it for cheap I jump on it. Getting Kindle editions for free and then butting the Audibles cheap is probably how I got most of the books from this sale that I already owned. I prefer to own the Audibles though, so I can listen to them whenever and don't have to keep Unlimited to listen to them.

The broken earth trilogy is a very good read. The world building is great, and the characters are interesting. I think it doesn't really hit its stride till partway through the second book, but it's not like the first book is a chore to get through or anything.

There are 31 books that i've been waiting for a sale on in this SALE.......OMG I can't possibly buy that many at once but I don't think i'll get them cheaper? This is an excellent sale.

Many of these I picked up the first book in an earlier sale and now I'm hooked.

New series that I'm thinking I'll like are: Millennium Series, The Winter night Trilogy, The Broken Earth, The Expanse (just started the show), Chaos seeds(don't really know what to expect though), Lock in

Any of those I should skip?

Any luck on filtering/sorting to more popular titles. I got it sorted to scifi but send to have a lot of 'junk' and not a good way to just sort by popularity
