Looking for a good book

I love getting lost in a good book.  You know the kind where you dread reading the last page?  It's been awhile since I've read one of those.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Oh i know! I's read the whole trilogy before the movies came out. chilling. The capitol is especially evil and they all feel so entitled.

Re: Looking for a good book

@Kalex I LOVE to read...  I read so much that I decided to stop buying books and just keep going to my library. I also found out that I can have NEW books transferred from the main library downtown here in San Francisco, to my local libraries a few blocks away and at the other end of the city! A book nerd like me is in heaven! Plus it saves me from $17 downloads on my kindle Smiley Wink

 

That being said, I'm into SO many different types of books, and funny but I get a lot of recommendations from reading magazines and their "new selection" reviews! People magazine is great for that- I've found some winners! Smiley Happy The last book I read that I could not put down.. Hunger Games! I read all 3 of them so quickly because I hated to put them down.

Diana, Im a  total book nerd too, I love the library.  I download on my iPad but I still love the smell and feel of a physical book.  I did download 50 shades of gray on my iPad so no one could see me reading it!

Re: Looking for a good book

This is my first response!  I don't know much about make-up/skin care so I lurk to learn, but I do read a lot!

 

I also highly recommend the Hunger Games trilogy.  Divergent isn't bad either.  I haven't gotten to reading the book that comes after it. 

 

Sarah's Key by Rosnay is good if you're interested in historical fiction (WWII).

 

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier, who wrote Rebecca, also excellent.  Both are great if you like less recent fiction.

 

Hannibal is better than the movie version, as are Timeline and The Godfather.

I Totally Meant to do That by Borden.

Re: Looking for a good book

My nook is stocked with books just begging for me to read. I haven't had time lately to get into a book. When I read, I get lost in it & don't want to do anything else until I've finished it. Even worse I prefer series, to single book, and wait until they are complete so I'm not stuck waiting a year for the next one to come out

Some Favorites:

- Charline Harris (the books that True Blood are based off of)

- Any Steve Berry book

- The House Of Night Series by P.C. Cast

- Colleen Houck's Tiger Curse series 

- The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series

Re: Looking for a good book

Like Triciaann12, I also love the Hunger Games (dystopian, YA), and add to that Harry Potter (fantasy, YA), and The Host (Sci-fi, Romance, Adult).

 

If you like the classic literature like Jane Austen, there are a lot of Jane Austen-esque stories out right now written with Elizabeth and Darcy. I especially love the one that is a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Jane Austen. I read so much I forget the titles but they feature her other characters, not just those from Pride and Prejudice.

 

If you like non fiction as well, anything from Malcolm Gladwell is good. It's really thought provoking, especially the first one I read, Outliers. Outliers was recommended to me by several people I volunteered with in a children's literacy non-profit, Reading to Kids. After so many people mentioned it, I had to read it for myself.

Want an autobiography? Read Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I was gifted with that and she's really interesting.
