    I figured I'd post this here as well, for those of you who don't frequent General. I could use a lot more book recommendations, so please send it in!

    From the post in General:

    I'm working on a list of our community's favorite SFF books for the Tar Valon Times. I'm making this list by combining recommendations from members into one big list. The more recommendations a book has, the higher it ends up on the list. This list will be published over several instalments in the TVT.

    The SFF genre includes any form of fantasy, science fiction, and/or horror.

    Could you help me by sharing three to ten of your favorite SFF books with me by PM? Feel free to simply send me a list of titles. However, if you have a bit of extra time, it would be especially helpful if you could write up a short explanation of why you recommend a book.

    I'm hoping to publish the first part in the October TVT, so I'd like to receive your recommendations by September 18.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    Note: Please send recommendations by PM to preserve the reveal for the TVT.

    • Both standalones and entire series are welcome.
    • All subgenres are welcome. So don't hesitate to send in your urban fantasy or alternate history recommendations. ^^
    • YA is welcome, too.
    • I am combining series for this list, so you're welcome to list whole series or single books in series. However you wish to do it.

    Young Adult books, e.g. The Chronicles of Narnia, The Prydain Chronicles, things like that.

    I'm anxious to see if any of my recs make the list. Some of them, while not obscure, aren't wildly popular (at least not nowadays :lol).

    Final chance to submit recommendations! I've received over 120 unique book recommendations already, but I could definitely use some more to finish rounding out the list.
