Seriously...just read the Twilight Saga in two days. That's how bored I am.
I like Nora Roberts, Dean Koontz, Debbie Macomber, John Grisham, Nick Sparks, Fern Micheals etc...but I think I need to look outside the usual suspects.
No horror please! I had nightmares after reading a different vampire trilogy (The Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts), and do not wish to have more. (In my defense, those were some BAD beep beep vampires in that book....Cross the I Am Legend zombies with the newborns from Twilight, and it might get close to how scary they were in my dreams. LOL)
I will happily read suspense, romance, mystery type books.
Previous reads have been--Eragon (all of them), all the Harry Potters, most of the Wagons West! Series, all of the Clan of The Cave Bear series, Memoirs of a Geisha, Lonesome Dove, Camanche Moon, The Birth House(Ami Mckay), Into the Wilderness books by Sara Donati.... and a bunch of others by above authors.
Here are a few of my favourite books:
• Life of Pi (Yann Martel)
• Angela's Ashes (Frank McCourt)
• The Book of Negroes (Lawrence Hill)
• The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Stieg Larsson) this is a three-book series and you won't be able to put them down!
• Island of the Blue Dolphins (Scott O'Dell) even though this is a kids' book it's a must-read!
• Fall On Your Knees (Ann Marie McDonald) a very moving but very sad story
If you like mysteries, check out any of the Lord Peter Wimsey series by Dorothy L. Sayers, or anything by Collin Dexter. Some of my favourite books are by these authors.
If you like sci-fi and love OLD sci-fi:
• Out of the Silent Planet (C. S. Lewis) <- space trilogy, some of my favourite science fiction!
• Anything by H. G. Wells
If you like Canadiana...anything Farley Mowat!
I'm currently reading Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally. It is written as a novel but the author has built every detail around verifiable facts of the life of Oskar Schindler. It is a fascinating book, I'm not finished yet but I highly recommend it. The movie was very acclaimed...I haven't seen it as I always knew there was a book and I like to read before I watch.
Okay...I think that's enough!
