I really like books but lately I've been disappointed with books I've read. They are good, just not GOOD. I read all and any genres. I just want a book I wont want to ever put down. HELP PLEASE

Hi Chelsea.
Stephen King is being talked about quite a bit right now. Have you ever read any of his books? If not, I would recommend you start with my favorite....

The Stand.

I can't stop thinking about Edward, Edward: A Part of His Story And Of History 1795-1816 Set Out In Three Parts In This Form Of A New-Old Picaresque Romance That Is Also A Study in Grace by Lolah Burford. I read it about once a year. A tough, wrenching read.

Well, if Stephen King doesn't really appeal to you, then how about:

Here Be Sexist Vampires by Suzanne Wright - (it's only $1.50)

It's a well written paranormal, full of action, humor & great characters. It gives a whole different take on vampires too, interesting I thought. I loved the book & can't wait for part 2.

ETA: Wright's a very talented SPA

Have you ever read John Steinbeck's Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday? I couldnt put them down. The Help I just had to read until I was finished. You like serial killers? The Dexter novels are good. Catcher in the Rye was good. Anything by Ray Bradbury. The 2001 trilogy was good. Then on the really light side... anything by J R Rain.

My Lobotomy, although I'm more of a fiction fan...I found this story very interesting and the fact that it is non-fiction makes it all the more strange and terrifying in a way.

I completed Boy's Life last weekend. It was indeed one of the best books I have ever read.

Chelsea if you are going to read King, you have GOT to read The Stand. It is his best and in my top 10 list.

Very excited about these new recommendations. Keep them coming!!

I read alot of different genres too. The most important aspect of a novel to me is character development. I like for the characters to be so engaging that my thoughts linger on them after I have finished reading the book. Recently, I have had a tough time running across one of those books that I just cant put down.

These are a couple of my latest up all night reads.

Testimony of Two Men: A Novel (Rediscovered Classics)
The Night Circus

We've got to talk about Kevin. novel narrator is wife to husband.Wish the novel would leave my mind but the issue is current. who/what is the
youthful school shooter/slayer. nature v nurture. Must have a strong stomach coupled with a strong interest in what makes people tick,

Do you honestly think anyone is going to read this book after it's been thrown in our faces for several days now? Seriously?

So it looks like each shill account reviews one book by a known author.

Of course the review says If you liked this book....blahblahblah.

I've had enough. Reported.

I'm a huge fan of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden books, starting with Storm Front (The Dresden Files, Book 1) His most recent, Cold Days, was released 2 days ago.

In a nutshell, Harry is Chicago's only professional wizard, and he works (sort of) with Chicago PD's Karrin Murphy to solve magical crimes.

(This is the only series I purchase three ways: Kindle edition and hard cover, and paperback to loan out. I've had to replace the paperback set 3x now, because the loan-ee didn't want to go out and purchase their own set and so bought them from me.)

I'm not associated with Jim Butcher in any way except to be a huge fan and minor-player financial backer (see paragraph above: I purchase multiple copies of each book) ...just wanted to put that out there.

I've such good things about those books, R. Acoya!

For me, books that were great when I read them at eighteen don't seem so great when I read them at 68. The books didn't change but I did. Sometimes a book that addresses an issue in my life arrives at just the right time. That would be the case with "Crossing to Safety" by Wallace Stegner. I thought, and still think, it's a great book.
