I was often frustrated in the past finding a happy medium between literature with characters who were real and relatable, stories that were deep and adventurous, and yet clean. It was hard to find a book that met all of those requirements for me, and that I didn't have to "self edit". I hope that this list will lead you to wholesome, but seriously awesome fantasy and science fiction novels to whet your appetite but not sour it! Happy reading, dear friends! I have alphabetized the list by author's last names, and you may find a little historical fiction sprinkled throughout. (Please note that I have not added all links and details yet as this list is under construction.)
