If you’re the type to escape into books, I’d like to recommend two series from Rachel Aaron. Heartstriker’s is about a dragon who’s tired of dragons being all draconic. The DFZ series is about a young Korean woman who leaves college with a “useless” degree and a mountain of debt.
On the surface, All Systems Red is about a scientific expedition to another planet that runs into trouble and terror when another scientific expedition is murdered. It is narrated by a security robot that hacked its governor module and named itself “murderbot.”
