    Book suggestions please!

    Advertisements
    Can someone please point me in the direction of a good book? I used to be a bookworm but I haven't read anything in a while.

    Some of my favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks, Chuck Palahniuk, Stephen King, and Stieg Larsson. Just to give you an idea... but I'm open to ALMOST anything.

    If you like Steig Larsson, there's a Norwegian author Jo Nesbo who writes a similar style of novels. They follow a detective in Oslo....I've read The Redbreast, The Snowman and Devil's Star; all enjoyable if you like crime thrillers
    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go.
    Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right.
    You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
    And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    Unfortunately, I've cleared all of those minus the Hunger Games. I don't know if I'm interested yet...

    As soon as you start The Hunger Games, you'll BE interested.

    If you like Stephen King try the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Really? I know nothing about it. Just what I've seen from the trailer. I can't REALLY tell just from that if it's a story I'll be into. I'm also wondering if I need to read the book to see the movie...

    Yep, Chuck is pretty much checked off my list.

    I'll look into those other titles.

    Well I am MSOS Bookworm two years in a row now SO I could help

    Do you like vampire type stuff? Not like the gothy type stuff.. but like twilight?

    I've been reading the Sookie Stackhouse series i'm on book 9 out of 11 and it's kind of like twilight but completely aimed at an adult crowed!

    Also I love Karen Kingsbury. Give me anything of her's and i'm golden! She is a christian fiction author (I am not religious but I can handle these books... be prepared with a box of tissues too!)

    Whoops Just saw you've already read the sookie stackhouse books.

    OO if you want a dirty read that's like a biography you can read "How to Make Love Like a Pornstar" It's about Jenna Jameson... that was quite interesting!
