Looking for a good book...What do you recommend?

I'm looking for a good book to read, I'm a bit of a book worm and I'm running out of ideas of what to read.

What are you reading? What do you recommend?

  • In my comments section, I'll list a long list of books. Most of these are books I've read in the last year or so. Some of them are just favourites of mine. I hope you can find something interesting out of this mix. I'm sorry I can't just post it in my main answer, but unfortunately the site is being glitchy and not allowing me to post it all at once.

    • Your the first person I know that's read Neil Gaiman work! What did you think of Sandman? Wasn't it brilliant?! and the art work was superb too!

    • Yeah, I read through all of The Sandman. It was quite something yeah. Breezed through it in the span of a week. It's pretty great stuff. Though it's got so much going on, it's kinda hard to summarize, or even explain why it's great. Especially since Dream/Sandman is not always the central character.

    • I don't read many biographies I'm sorry to say. I've read biographies by Slash, Marilyn Manson, Russell Howard and Lewis Hamelton. But I don't really want to delve any further into the biography world. But thank you for the suggestion :)

  • If you like horror, read The Hellbound Heart. It's the novella that the movie Hellraiser is based on.

  • I'm a giant book worm, here's a few for you that I really enjoyed :)

    - Tiger's curse series (Tiger's curse, Tiger's quest, Tiger's voyage)

    - Gone series (By michael Grant)

    -A lot of books by Christopher Pike are good

    - Wicked Lovely series (By Melissa Marr)

    - Alice in Zombieland (it's a series, I forget the author though)

    - The Immortals series by Alyson Noel

    - Hush, Hush series (Becca Fitzpatrick)

    - Strange Angels series

    - Angel Fire series (warning you though, the last book kinda sucks)

    Those are just a few that I can think of off hand, and they're mainly supernatural like with some romance but that's just because it's the kind of books I'm into. If you try some of these books, I hope you enjoy them! :)

    • I loved the wicked lovely, Immortals and Hush, Hush series! Nice to meet another fan :3 thanks for the other suggestions, I will look at them :D

    • Same here! :D Oh, I don't know if you know this, but Melissa Marr is writing Desert Tales (another Faerie series, it was originally just published as a manga) I can't tell you off hand about when but she's apparently working on it now and it'll be out sometime this year I think :)

      And another series is well, I guess all three I know from Maria Snyder (Poison study, magic study, and fire study; The glass series; and inside out and outside in which actually could be the other way around XD)

  • Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. It's yet another vampire love story, but it's very witty. The main character is very impulsive and has tons of hilarious moments/lines. I should warn you though, there are one or two sex scenes.

    • I bought it today online! Thanks for the suggestion, I can't wait for it to arrive, it looked really good :D

  • The Book of Story Beginnings-Kristin Kladstrup -yeah, it's a book for younger people but it's a really good book

    Tiger, Tiger-Lynne Reid Banks-if you like court stories about ancient Rome, go for this

    Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman-Robert K. Massie-awesome! :o

    There is also this book about this British teen who goes to the doctor and gets an incredible surprise that leads to dangerous chases, an equally dangerous and beautiful hacker, and Spain.
