10 Classics to Try if You Like SFF

Welcome to my latest new blog post series! I’m not sure yet how many posts are going to be in this series, but I’m hoping to make it a monthly thing, probably for the rest of this year. Each month, I’m going to pick a different genre, focusing on popular bookstagram/booktube genres, and recommend 10 classics that you will probably enjoy if you’re a fan of that genre! If I’ve read and reviewed them, I’ll leave a link to my review so you can find out more, but some might be TBR books. Today, I’m focusing on science fiction and fantasy, and suggesting some classics (including modern classics!) that you might enjoy if you’re a fan of this genre.

As the title says, in total I’ve unhauled well over 100 books, but this post is going to be focusing on the unhaul I did at my dad’s house. When I was still at school, I spent my time evenly split between my parents’ houses, so I also had my books pretty evenly split. Over my time at uni, I started to spend more time during the holidays at my mum’s, and migrated most of my most-wanted books to hers. And after uni, thanks to lockdown, I barely got to go to my dad’s house to do any sorting out… until now!
