Exit West (Highly Recommended)

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

Breathtakingly beautiful. Both profoundly intimate and political. Minimal dialogue, dreamlike.

Lilac Girls

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

History provides drama. Gaping plot holes. Characters unexplained, unexplored, undeveloped.

The Way of Kings (Epic Fantasy, 1st of 10 books, Recommended to fans of sword and sorcery fantasy)

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Noble men battle. Learned women philosophize. Eco-system dazzles. War aplenty.
