I do reviews for amazon so have had the chance over the past several months to get some great books..different genre's.
My favorite new series is "The Hunger Games" series by Suzanne Collins. This series is amazing. I got an advanced reader copy a while ago of the new book out tomorrow and it was outstanding -- it seems science fiction type I guess. Kind of Survivor meets 1984...I don't know another way to describe it. I was mesmerized and read it straight through! Not my normal genre at all (mostly read detective/mystery/suspense)
I liked another author (although the book isn't out yet the earlier ones are..so I want to read them) named James Swain...the series is suspense. The one I finished is The Night Monster and it looks like it will be out September 15. I can really recommend it...It kept me up all night just to finish it!
If you like funny stories Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series cannot be missed. I'm re-reading those. You know that saying I laughed so hard I peed my pants..well, turns out, that can really happen. Who knew? HaHa
If you like mythology mixed with Harry Potter type stories I recommend The Olympians by Riordan (I think)..excellent series. My daughter and I just finished it and we loved all 5 of them!
The Book Thief is on my list..as soon as I get through the ones I still owe reviews on for amazon. I review for another website too but am caught up there...mostly e-books from that one though (of the more romance type)
