One of the things that everyone seems to agree on is that a writer must read. Since what I write is fantasy and I’m a big fan of epic fantasy, here is a website that ranks fantasy books. It breaks down the genre into numerous topics and each list offers two options; one from the website and one from viewers.
Many of the book suggestions are repeated from website to viewer list. Often a book will shift within the list, but sometimes viewers will offer new suggestions. Either way, good stories are in your future be they series, military, steampunk, or even YA.
May the muse be with you,
