    Question Which books have left a lasting impression?

    Advertisements
    DF and my family gave me a Nook this Christmas and I am curious as to which book(s) you've been hankering to recommend.

    I've asked about mystery novels/series before, but this time I am open to any genre.

    Thank you!

    The Hunger Games Trilogy most recently. I put those down wishing they weren't over.

    I've never read the second two.

    I just finished Divergent today (after purchasing it in the afternoon!) and it was thought-provoking. On to the next book, eh?

    Right now I have been reading alot of classics. I love, love, love ALL of Jane Austens books, as well as the Bronte sisters. If you are looking for something newer I also really like Cassandra Clares Mortal Instruments book series Cassandra Clare | New York Times Bestselling Author of The Shadowhunter Chronicles Ive read so many books since moving to VA because of the library on base! Im sure I will think of more.

    I read a lot of non-fiction. Maybe if you want to try a different genre, an ethnography can be thought provoking. The last ones I read were Nisa by Marjorie Shostak and Light at the Edge of the World by Wade Davis. They're both small, easy reads. I started reading The Reindeer People, but haven't finished it.
    Also anything about the food industry fascinates me. The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan was pretty good and I'm still reading the China Study.
