Three Body Problem (this one's probably going to get mentioned a lot, and it absolutely deserves it). The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi. Red Rising (series) by Pierce Brown.

I almost gave up on Three Body Problem because it starts off a little slowly and it's difficult to see where the book is going. Absolutely worth it in the end, though. The second two are the kinds of books you can rip through quickly if you've got a little extra reading time over the holidays.

Glad to hear the trilogy was worth continuing! I tore through the first one in about 3 days – admittedly the start is very slow. Will have to pick the other two up now.

Pro-tip: Nils Frahm’s 2018 album All Melody pairs extremely well with book 3. This combination was a highlight of 2018 for me.
