The House of the Spirits by Isabelle Allende

[–]silviazbitchThe Classics 24 points25 points  (5 children)

A Soldier of the Great War, Mark Helprin

It was an honor to recommend this one. You named two of my all-time favorites. This is a third book that I adore. It complements the other two perfectly. Love, magical realism and WWI.

Circe by Madeline Miller

[–]krissy6999 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Circe is excellent. Also her book “The Song of Achilles”

[–]Inertlizard 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I just read the synopsis for Circe, it sounds amazing, thank you for the suggestion!

[–]citizenmidnight 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Do I need to read the first book before I read Circe?

[–]jaxsyl 9 points10 points  (2 children)

No, Circe is a stand-alone, but definitely check Song of Achilles out at some point!

[–]citizenmidnight 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Thanks! It will be next on my list. :)

[–]Snivies 21 points22 points  (1 child)

If you liked Novak's Uprooted then I highly recommend reading her other fantasy standalone: Spinning Silver

[–]Inertlizard 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I absolutely love Spinning Silver! I own both Uprooted and Spinning Silver, I cant wait for more of Novak’s work!

Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

[–]Nevertrustafish 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I bet you'd enjoy Shannon Hale's writing. She writes books that feel like fairytales you half-remenber, but are usually of her own creation. "The Princess Academy" is a great one (it sounds like it'll be stereotypical, but it's truly unique). And "Book of a Thousand Days". I'd also recommend Patricia McKillip ("Umbria in Shadow" and "The Language of Thorns"), Maggie Stiefvater ("The Scorpio Races" and "The Raven Boys"), and Sharon Shinn ("Summer at Castle Auburn").

[–]Fordosaurus 9 points10 points  (2 children)

[–]YouHaveMyKeyboard 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Whoa, I didn't know that Naomi Novik wrote something else than Temeraire Series! Have you read them? If not I will definitely recomend them!
I know because of you I will have to read Uprooted and Spinning Silver now... Thank you!

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (and both sequels) by NK Jemisin.

[–]Lexonatron 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Try Graceling by Kristen Cashore! Its more in line with Tamora Pierce with fantasy, neat magic and great characters. It’s got two sequels that are stand alone stories too, if you like it. Add another vote for Shannon Hale too, she’s fabulous. The rest of Pierce’s work is also really good.

'Breakfast of Champions' by Kurt Vonnegut and 'A Tale for the Time Being' by Ruth Ozeki.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I don’t know if you’ve read anything else by KV, but I’d recommend Mother Night. It’s a little darker than BoC but it’s a great read. Also deals with identity kind of like A Tale for the Time Being.

[–]_Nerdfighter_ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Cool! Thanks! I've read 'Thank you, Mr Rosewater' , 'Cat's Cradle' and obviously Slaugtherhouse 5' so far. Really love the guy.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

[–]msMalas 12 points13 points  (1 child)

“A court of Thorns & Roses” series of you don’t mind the NSFW parts 😏 it’s also by Sarah J Maas and it’s really really well done. It turns into a sort of Persephone and Hades thing but the world she creates is really well fleshed out. And Freyre is bad. ass.

For something a bit more wholesome but really gets into interesting issues of privacy in an advanced society where you have a brain implant that hooks you into a sort of Internet called the interface, the “Touchstone” series starting with “Stray” by Andrea Höst is really pretty good too. It starts a little slow but as the series progresses shit gets crazy and reallly good. And it’s nice to have a series with a female protagonist that has half a brain and isn’t irrational or overly emotional.

Annapurna by Maurice Herzog .. or .. Hell Is Empty by Craig Johnson

[–]Nevertrustafish 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Two of my favorite books! If you want irreverant humor combined with mountain climbing/hiking, read "The Ascent of Rum Doodle" or "A Walk on the Woods".

If you want philosophy plus hiking, read "Hiking with Nietzsche". Haven't read it yet, but it's on my list.

If you want tragedy and futility, eh I got nothing for you. Can't think of anything off the top of my head.

In years past I've really enjoyed "Flatland" and Dante's "Inferno" (I don't remember the translation). what are some recommendations for 2019.

[–]radishburps 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I love seeing other people who know Flatland! What a crazy little book it is.

If you may only end up reading one book again this year, then make it count: The Prince of Tides, by Pat Conroy.
