Book recs? I love reading self-help books but sometimes they bore me. Any good fiction series out there that can get me reading more often?

I like Jeffrey archer books. Recently read the clifton Chronicles. I also like jeffrey deaver novels. Game of throne books are good read too (if you haven't already), michael asher (has some good sci-fi), love agatha christie books too (small quick reads). Laura John Rowland has a series of books based in ancient japan which I find quick light reading.

For self help book, next one I am going to read is "measure what matters ".

*Financial Discussion*
My fiancé and I have been planning our long term finances. We’re both currently saving for a down payment but she’s in law school so only working part time. Once she starts working as an attorney at her law firm, we discussed both of us maxing out our 401k to lower our taxable income for about 3 years. That way, when we start a family, our 401k can grow well on its own in case I’m the main provider (she’ll work part time for a couple years while kids are young). Thoughts?
