One book series I can recommend is The Expanse books that are also the reference material for The Expanse TV show.
The first book in the series is Leviathan Wakes and there are a total of eight books currently in the series. The ninth book, which will be the last, is due out next year.
The books themselves are a combination of sci fi battles, political intrigue and science that is more grounded in modern physics. Which adds to some interesting plot devices and story lines. Additionally, if one likes the type of sci fi you normally find with Arthur C Clarke, these books are akin to that type of storytelling.
