I just read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness a few weeks ago and couldn't put it down! I flew through that book.

I am currently reading the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabledon. I cannot believe how good these books are. There are 7 in the series and the author is writing the 8th. I'm currently on book 7 and loving it. I will be very sad when I'm done with this series.

Anyone else read these?

What Came Before He Shot Her by Elizabeth George. Fascinating, wrenching. I still think about the characters in this novel, but some of George's fans were outraged because in this novel she kills off one of the characters in the series. Others loved it. Not easy to stomach - very realistic and memorable.

Just re-read the entire series, so I've been well immersed all summer - I read An Echo in the Bone only about 6 months ago, and it made me homesick for the others when I realized how much I'd forgotten of them. Even that soon, I'm enjoying EITB much more this time (still have about 1/3 of it left), having just finished the others.

Next, I have her Lord John Grey books to read for the first time, to help me more gently withdraw from Outlander world, LOL. And maybe get a wee cheetie to name Adso . . . .

Love her books! They're frequently laugh-out-loud funny to me. The times and the people seem so real - I guess I identify with them a lot because of both my Scottish heritage and because my family - both Scots-Irish and Cherokee - is all over the mountains of NC, TN, and GA. Fraser's Ridge in the 18th century doesn't sound so very different from the same area in my grandparent's time, or even in my dad's youth. There were still few paved roads, no phones, and little electricity in a lot of areas even when I was a kid. I was in jr. high before either set of grandparents had phones, and even then they were on a party line. They had bathrooms, but they also still had working outhouses until the end of their days. Think both families had had electricity since the late '30's - ahead of the times compared to many up there.

Anyway, I digress. I can't wait for #8 to, hopefully, come out sometime next year, per her website!

I know this thread is a bit old, but I had to add A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah. So, so good. It's a true story, quite intense. Had to read it for an English class a few years ago and I'm so thankful for that

Well, I write fantasy books when I'm not working on my major, and I've been reading fantasy and sci-fi since I started learning how to pronounce words. So....


The Death Gate Cycle by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. It is, without a doubt, the most awesome and inspiring fantasy epics out there. It redefines good fantasy. To hell with that 'Legend of Drizzt' sludge -- this is pure, inventive fantasy like you wouldn't believe. The story and the characters are simply amazing, believable, and you really get invested in both. It's this series of 7 books that made me decide that I'd make a living off writing fantasy. I'd say wiki it, but don't do that -- it gives away too much of the plot! Just get the first book Dragon Wing from the library, and you'll soon find yourself buying the whole series.

Recently, I've become very much a fan of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. The main character is simply hilarious. Mad love for Harry. And finally, what's best about this series is that it has a supernatural-esque character that is NOT a vampire (thank god). Still very much and urban fantasy, but it's simply a hilarious read. I suspect that Butcher was the secret apprentice of Terry Pratchett! Which leads me to....

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett. A tip of the hat to all those Stormtroopers~ This book follows the misfit, social outcasts of the night guardsman in Pratchett's comedic fantasy Discworld series. If you have not yet read any Pratchett, or read any of the Discworld series, you have unknowingly committed a crime against humanity and must atone for your actions immediately. Do it, or else the Luggage will get you.

I read "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" when I was about 12, and now I am listening to it on tape. I cant wait to get in my car to listen. Another wonderful read was was Franl McCort's "Teacherman".

I recently read The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons. It was an excellent book I could not stop reading. It takes place during WWII in Leningrad and surrounding areas in Russia during the siege of Leningrad. It's do good. I read the second book (because of course everything is a series now) and started the third and they just weren't as good as the first. I highly recommend it.
