I finished the third of NK Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy last week. For me it was just so much about love, the diversity of love, how there are so many possible ways and reasons to feel and express and perform love (or not). We see familial love as a core theme of course, and reluctant love, unrequited love, love for and within a community, chosen family, forbidden, painful, passionate and physical, between different genders and the same, polyamorous, challenging, accepting, unconditional, unexpected.

Sure it's about magic and rock-people and apocalypse. But it's the most thorough and detailed and diverse exploration of love I've ever read.
