About a year ago, I started reading novels again. More specifically, science fiction novels.
Initially, I searched reddit, io9 and a few other sites to come up with a comprehensive list of the “must read” in the sci-fi genre.
Somewhere along the way, I also acquired a few newer books as well that I enjoyed.
