I'm really loving @paolini's "To Swim in a Sea of Stars." The action only ever stops for just long enough to provide bursts of deep insight and really cleverly crafted world building. Characters that are easy to care about and constant tension. It's big book, but very worth it!      source

The book I chose from these recommendations was "Wanderers" by Chuck Wendig and it blew my pants off. It was a /fast/ read for a long book, and gives weight to the feeling I have right now that humanity is always on a knife's edge.      source
