Book Recommendation

SaucyxGirl SaucyxGirl
I figured it would be nice to start a thread where members could perhaps recommend books for others to read. I really enjoy reading, I find it relaxing and a great way to unwind and just escape this world. The books don't have to be erotica or romance to be recommended in this thread. Any genre is welcome

One of the main books that I always recommend is The Last Child by John Hart. If you like thrillers/dramas that are well written and will stick with you this a book you should read. Link

if anyone is into short erotic stories, check out "Best Erotic Romance 2013". I just started reading it.

if anyone has read this book, make a comment or 2 about it.

Inferno, by Dan Brown (same guy who wrote the DeVinci Code). It is a follow on with the same main character. It is a thick paperback I just cannot put down. Great summer read.

I just bought that book, I'll have to move it to the top of my To Be Read Pile.

A few more:

Penpal by Dathan Auerbach
The Ghosts of Varner Creek by Michael Weems
Wool series by Hugh Howey

All three can be found on amazon as they are by indie writers.

Thanks for the recommendations! You know, I've gotten away from my rabid recreational reading the last two years and focused mainly on erotica and spending lots of time on the Net. One thing I love is the ability to find so many independent authors through all the self-publishing options they have access to now! I thought the old way was stifling and many great stories will never be heard because they weren't picked up by a publisher in the past. It's such a crap shoot to be chosen and really, how can they always be right about what people want to read. To me, they seemed to always be chasing the trends instead of setting them with innovative reads. Once they are convinced that something is going to be hot, they then grab as much of that topic as they can put out. It reminds me of movies and TV, too, with everyone copying the same formulas and not wanting to gamble on original ideas, same old story.

What I love is finding an author I love and then seeing I have an entire series or more that I have ahead of me to read; I love that, same as with music! I get so impatient waiting for them to come out with a new book or album, so it's wonderful to have a ready made stack to plow through. I really like the erotica books by Sunny, but she hasn't put out anything in a few years, dammit.

Aside from LotR/The Hobbit (haven't gotten to read The Silmarillion yet unfortunately, but have read a few fanfics based on it), I'd probably recommend Ogre, Ogre (a favorite of my bf that he suggested I try...and it's actually really good. A bit ridiculous at times, but good), Stray (by Rachel Vincent, book one of her Shifters series, I think.), Pindar's Odes (Bobbs-Merrill publishing, Translated by Roy Arthur Swanson...found it in the local library and loved it so much I bought my own copy.), and Kim Harrison's Hollows series link to reading order for this.

I'm currently reading Lover at Last by J.R. Ward. It's the most recent in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I love the BDB series! It has romance, fighting, and sex. What more could you ask for in a book. Another of my favorites recently is The Knitting Circle by Anne Hood. It was a welcome emotional break from living in the fantasy worlds I usually retreat to.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a hilarious read and, no, don't compare the original to the movie.

I agree about the indie writers. Most of the time besides great talent they also bring fresh ideas to their genre, not rehashing the same plot devices over and over like the big publishing houses do. I have encountered a few duds along the way but I must say the majority of indie writers are good.

Dropping by to post some more recommendations The first two are Indies.

The Wayward Pines Series by Blake Crouch (I am eagerly awaiting the third book which I hopefully will have in my hands by the end of the week)

Forsaken by Andrew Van Wey- Don't be turned off by the negative reviews that mentioned spelling, grammar and wording issues. The writer has since cleaned up the book and the copy that I read was pretty much error free. If you love horror/thrillers this is a great read.

I am going to have to second Inferno By Dan Brown, after Bignuf recommended it I moved it to the top of my read pile and ended up absolutely loving it. I actually have been recommending that book like crazy to friends, family and co-workers. lmao

An absolute classic

Although not hilarious you made me suddenly recall another book series that I stumbled upon as young teen and fell in love with. The Dune series by Frank Herbert

I have read a few of the books in Brian Herbert series I just had problems really getting into them. Not sure why as I also love the way both Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are writing them. ~scratches head~

I read a lot and can never keep up with the ever growing stack of books. If you like page turners, I'd echo he recommendation to read the Wool Series (Wool omnibus, Second Shift omnibus, and Dust omnibus) are fantastic and the best, most fun that I've read in a while.

Also very fond of the Hitchiker's Guide to the Gallaxy series (all the books). Very querky, Slow and hard to follow at times, but one hell of an adventure. The most recent movie is most related to the primary book in the series. It's a fun movie, but there is definitely a lot of deviation and new material in the movie.

So, I'm a huge literary nerd. Has anyone read or heard of My Secret Life? Its a multi-volumed anonymous account of a gentleman's sex life in Victorian England. I just finished with volume one and I have to say, I think this book gives a whole new meaning to "close your eyes and think of England". While I doubt all the sexcapades in this book actually happened to one individual, the book was published in 1888, so the anonymous author was alive at the time of these events. Isn't it fascinating?
The first three volumes are on Project Gutenberg if anyone is interested.

Right now I'm working on Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. I think it's supposed to be an autobiography, but supposedly he got caught making a lot of stuff up (?)

It's entertaining and good. It's about a gay guy's life, and told from childhood through adulthood. A friend gave it to me when they moved away

Gone Girl. Best book I have read in a while, best movie I have seen in a while. It's funny though...folks either love it or hate it. Very little "ho hum" in between.
