    One of the most helpful lists on the site. Try out Pivot of the Sky, it's one of the hidden gems. There nothing else like it

      Thanks! Good recommendation but it has 6924 Readers which is a little too much to consider being added to this list but personally I’ll give it a read. If you have any recs with under 1,500 I will give them an add.
