Starglass by Phoebe North
North builds a rich world on the Asherah, a generation spaceship that left Earth long before Terra, our heroine, was born, in search of a new home. Terra is a complex, smart, and painfully real character navigating grief, love, and a dangerous rebellion. You know. As one does.

Proxy by Alex London
Come for the unique cyberpunk world-building, stay for the flawed-and-lovable characters. What makes this one a lifelong love, for me, though, is how it challenges me to think about debt, privilege, and class without slowing down the action.

The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
Beautifully written, original, and captivating, The Summer Prince tells the story of a young, talented artist in futuristic Brazil who finds a kindred spirit—the only problem is, his life is forfeit. This book turns me into a human embodiment of the heart eyes emoji.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This inventive story is told through documents that detail the aftermath of an attack on a mining colony, primarily focusing on two funny, resourceful, and lovable characters who somehow navigate it. I preordered Gemina, the sequel, the second I finished. I’m pretty sure you will, too.
