If you enjoy mystery/suspense ..... all things David Baldacci are INCREDIBLE reads..... some of his books are in a series. I have NEVER been disappointed when reading one of his books.
I have him on my list of authors to watch for and have read a couple of his books. The most recent one was Absolute Power. The one before that was the first book in his King and Maxwell series.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Thanks, DesertDruid. I'll have to look for some of these.
When you said the first chapter of Head On was ghastly it reminded me of something. I have a close friend who also reads a lot and she suggested The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson but warned me it was really "dark". I took her up on on this and was nearly done with the book and wondered what she meant. It finally dawned on me that I didn't think anything about it being "dark" because I was so used to reading Patricia Cornwell. BTW, I've read all three in that series by Larsson and have also read the new ones by David Lagercrantz who picked up the series after Larsson died.
Don't need books when I want a good laugh!
The first 10 pages or so of the Special Room saga has me in stitches every time!
For intellectual purposes : Douglas Adams tales of the Galaxy
but I also got into some of the young adult books
I went with a friend to see the Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie when it came out. I hadn't seen the first movie but had some idea what it was about. After seeing the Catching Fire movie I was hooked. I read all three of the books. Since then I look for some of the trilogies for young adults.
I also read the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth - Divergent; Insurgent; and Allegiant. Also read Red Rising by Pierce Brown which is the first book in another young adult series. I'm watching for the others to be on sale.
Age of Order that I'm reading now is the first in another young adult trilogy.
If you like thrillers, it's hard to beat Michael Crighton. His "Prey" had me forgetting how to breathe!
And for the SciFi fans, anything by Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke, Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy, & Ben Bova's Grand Tour books.
The above are all in my permanent library.
Yes, that is what got me hooked. There's a trilogy Matched by Ally Condie that is really good. If you like Fantasy I would also suggest the Tearling trilogy by Erika Johansen. I'm still trying to hunt down the third so I'm basing on the first two books alone. I have a load more that are on my "to be read list" but it is a book in itself.
I keep a book journal so I know what I want to read and once I've read the whole trilogy or series I make a summary and go back to decide if I want to keep the books (either on my kindle, PC or hardback) or if I donate. I figure if I can't get in to a book someone else will.
I do have Age of Order on my read list, however it is down a ways.
Books - my favourite thing to discuss.
When you say Head On's first chapter was gastly, I didn't find it so. I loved both Head On, and the earlier book, Lock In. I think, like LvlSlgr said, I have read too much of Scalzi/this type of genre, so I don't feel the squick factor you did.
I am mostly a SF/Fantasy/Horror reader, Favourite authors would be:
Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis, Robert J Sawyer, Neil Gaiman, Ben Aaronovitch, John Scalzi, Tim Powers, Graham Joyce, Ursula Le Guin, Guy Gavriel Kay, Nora Jemisin, Nalo Hopkinson, Janny Wurts, Robert Jackson Bennett, Alastair Reynolds, Octavia Butler, Anne Bishop, Charles de Lint, Haruki Murakami, Tananarive Due, Iain Banks, Dave Hutchinson and Max Gladstone.
Old timer SF writers I like would be Bob Shaw, Clifford Simak, Kate Wilhelm, Boris & Arkady Strugatsky, and Olaf Stapledon. Maybe also Arthur C Clarke.
Currently just finished a recent Stephen King, Sleeping Beauties, and now reading the new Murderbot Diary novella by Martha Wells, Artificial Condition. Love me some more Murderbot. Once that one is finished I have novels by Yevgeny Zamyatin, Dean Koontz and CJ Cherryh cued up and ready to go on my e-reader.
Don't have time lately.
The last book I read was Fire and Fury (Inside the Trump administration).
And Stephen Colbert's Midnight Confessions for a little comic relief.
And a great job he did
however when I want to get a belly laugh plus great english language I go back to an hour of Mark Twain
