Bethany | 463 comments Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi The Gates (Samuel Johnson, #1) by John Connolly The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

I picked these because they represent a good variety of what I've read and given 5 star ratings. I put 4 because I couldn't choose between Norse Mythology and Homegoing :)

I would also highly recommend The Broken Earth Trilogy by NK Jemison and The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman, but they are series, not single books, so I didn't put them here.
