    10. Any good non-fiction recommendations?

      Hey everyone! Pretty new user here so forgive me if I make some tildes-quette mistakes (haha!). Anyway, my first paycheck from my time as a tutor will be coming in the next week and I want to buy a good non-fiction book to read. The topic can be anything, but I would like for the topic to be something relatively unknown about or fascinating in the least. None of the books like TSAoNGAF, Freakonomics or something of that sort (I sort of don't like books which have such titles). I just want a good book that has an interesting topic in hand to read about. A preference would be in the field of physics, social science or philosophy. So, what is such book that you have enjoyed reading recently?

      P.S: I have been reading The Count of Monte Cristo which is outstanding to say the least. I am really enjoying it thus far. I plan to buy The Brothers Karamazov as my fiction book after getting my paycheck.

    14. Foreboding discovery of a main character’s past - in-depth book discussion and recommendations request

      Hoping to generate discussion and have a few books recommended that have some of the following characteristics:

      • foreboding discovery of a main character’s past
      • a plot conflict that with a focus other than war or physical/political fighting
      • preferable plot conflict examples: exploration, escape, grand heist, obtaining wisdom, treasure hunt
      • undercurrent of a great unused power or magic that has been long lost

      btw, I’m borrowing this format from r/Fantasy

      Books I have liked:
      Joe Abercrombie’s The First Law series
      Samantha Shannon The Priory of the Orange Tree
      Michael Crichton The Eaters of the Dead
      Lara Prior-Palmer (non-fiction) Rough Magic
      Arthur C. Clarke (sci-fi) Rendezvous with Rama
      Neal Stephenson (sci-fi) Anathem
      Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive series

      Traits like prose, characters, or settings you most enjoy:
      Settings within the wilderness, crypts, large buildings/structures, caverns are all great.

      Series vs. standalone preference:
      No real preference, but longer is better I suppose.

      Tone preference (lighthearted, grimdark, etc):
      No strong preference, but mystical, ancient, and dark comes to mind.

      Complexity/depth level:
      Preferably on the more intricate side.

      Thank you, let’s chat!
