I seem to be having a really difficult time getting into books lately. That said, I want to find something great to read, as I do love reading. I love just about everything (most of the time, anyway).

So,
Recommend a book or two for me, please?

Christopher Moore- Fool.
It's a dirty and humorous take on King Lear.

I'd say almost anything by Christopher Moore. He's got some good reads.

Also, there for almost two years, I hardly read anything because it was hard for me to sit still long enough to read a book. I'm slowly getting back into it.

If you're looking for something that's a bit more on the teen angsty, yet creative level, I'd recommend Hard Love by Ellen Wittlinger. It's one of my all-time favorites and it's about zines and the underground publishing scene.

If you like fantasy/horror, I highly recommend anything by Laurel K. Hamilton. Mysteries? Check out J.A. Jance (the Joanna Brady series is excellent) or Patricia Cornwell.

Awesome suggestions! I'm going to see which of these my library has in. Hopefully some of these will be able to hold my attention.

A Dirty Job is the first book of his I read. I had no idea adults wrote books like that.

How about a thriller!! "The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen" a novel by Thomas Caplan. It has intrigue, Hollywood stars, spies, SEX, Oval Office, computer paladins, seductive international glamour, stolen nuclear warheads, and a astonishing hero who leads you into a vortex you can't escape until the end!

I don't have the most sophisticated tastes, but if you a fantasy lover I would suggest Harry potter, forgotten relmes, Tamora Pierce and The Host from Stephine Meyer is surprisingly good.

You can check out the Goodreads website and list books you've read to receive similar recommendations and check out reader reviews on the books as well as product ratings (via stars).

My personal favorites are Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett - it is a satirical take on the Apocalypse and follows the antics of a Demon and Angel stationed on Earth as they try to avert it.

The other is THe Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, it is a rather long and intense read but it basically goes incredibly in-depth with Arthurian Legend - told mostly from the perspective of Morganne (Morgan).

Third is pretty much any novel in the Vampire Hunter D by Hideyuki Kikuchi, but most especially the first one. It follows a vampire hunter through post apocalyptic turmoil as he hunts down what is left of the vampires after their rule fell and faces his own demons.
