I’m looking for recommendations of new authors and new books to read since I’ve exhausted my merger library and want to take advantage of the cheap book prices here to discover some new authors.
You can take a look at the my Goodreads profile to get an idea of the type of books I like, but mainly I’m into sci-fi/fantasy with a leaning towards books which describe an alternate reality like Snow Crash and The Hunger Games or books that have a new twist on fairytales like Spindle’s End or books which delve into high fantasy like Game of Thrones and the Paknessarion trilogy. The only thing I demand is that the books have strong female characters. If it is only the boys off having fun, then I’m not interested.
Can anyone recommend anything that falls within these categories? All my favourite authors aren’t releasing their new books until March so I have a month of reading to fill up.
