Hi, I'm hoping for some suggestions. I love reading, and since Harry Potter, have been mostly reading YA books. Lately, I've been struggling to find a book or series that I can really get into.
I have tried several books that people have suggested on message boards, and I really want to like them, but I just don't for some reason. Part of the problem is that I am a fairly slow reader, and I don't have the time or patience to read hundreds of pages before I know what's going on or care about the characters.
Here are some of the books I've tried but not had any luck getting into (sorry if these are your favorites, I really Wanted to like them!)
The Outlander series, City of Bones, The Golden Compass, A Great and Terrible Beauty, Interview with the Vampire, Vampire Academy, Percy Jackson.
A few I've read recently that I really enjoyed: L.J. Smith - Forbidden Games 01 The Hunter, The Hate List, 13 Reasons Why (LOVED that book!) And some of my all-time favorites (across genres): the 3 series mentioned above, anything by Richard Bach or Og Mandino, Eat, Pray, Love and Flowers in the Attic (loved the wicked family, secrecy, mystery, cool house, triumph over tragedy...stopped after the first book - didn't like the change in writer's point of view or incest theme.)
I am looking for a book that hopefully has at least a couple of the following: suspense, mystery, interesting characters and settings (and I always enjoy a sweet love story).
I look forward to your suggestions!
