Awaken Online is a really cool story that hasn’t seemed to be done many times before. The story follows a boy named Jason, who is ready to escape the reality of his life, so he visits the brand new Awaken Online virtual reality game. The description reads the interesting line, “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.” By the cover, it gives off some cool Walking Dead vibes. However, this book might not be suitable for the faint of heart since it has a darker tone. Awaken Online is the first book in this Science Fiction & Fantasy series.

8. Ready Player One
