Alright, so recently I've come into a very fun genre of literature called "LitRPG". It is kind of hard to explain, but the gist of it is a character is transported into a situation and/or world wherein (be it fantasy or sci-fi) things like character stats are important to the story. As weird as fuck as that sounds, and believe me it is often very strange, the good news is that I've read some AMAZING fucking books in this weird genre.

If you have a kindle unlimited subscription (which is way fucking worth it, if you are a reader you should have one), then I can recommend some seriously good books in this genre.


This is one of my favorites, and I HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you like devious or dark characters (the main character sort of reminds me of Marou for some weird reason).

Jason logs into Awaken Online fed-up with reality. He’s in desperate need of an escape, and this game is his ticket to finally feeling the type of power and freedom that are so sorely lacking in his real life.

Awaken Online is a brand new virtual reality game that just hit the market, promising an unprecedented level of immersion. Yet Jason quickly finds himself pushed down a path he didn’t expect. In this game, he isn’t the hero. There are no damsels to save. There are no bad guys to vanquish.

In fact, he might just be the villain.

Another way to describe it is: A guy that has enough shit in his life decides to psychologically scar a bunch of people.

Another favorite book is this one:

In a universe where technology and magic co-exist, Nicholas Lyons desires one thing: to serve his queen as a Space Knight in the Royal Trident Forces. But when his final mission as an Academy cadet goes horribly wrong, Nicholas discovers he possesses illegal magical abilities that grant him power far beyond that of a normal man, knight, or mage.

When a clandestine assignment lands Nicholas on the worst starship in the kingdom’s fleet, he finds a motley crew of warriors hiding their own terrible secret. Death and betrayal lurk around every corner, and Nicholas finds himself torn between his loyalties to his new crew, or the oath he swore to his queen.

And death no matter which choice he makes.
