Book Suggestions

Hi there. I'm always on the prowl for new books to devour. Does anyone have any suggestions?

To help narrow things a little, I am primarily interested in fanticy, sci-fi, a little mystery, suspense, and I would like to find a good entrance point for easy-to-read scientific nonfiction. Classics are also always appreciated.

How about Jane Eyre? Not only is it a cassic, but it also has gothic and mysterious undertones. I can't remember the author, but the Blue Sword series is good. I have also read the Dark Is Rising series by Suann Cooper. Have you tried any distopian or futuristic novels like the Hunger Games? That sort of series is not for everyone, but if you like it, what about Farenhite 451? I'm not sure if this is any help to you, but I have read all of the books that I have mentioned and I loved all of them. Sorry to add this at the end, but I just thought of it. The book Flower for Algernon is also a really good book save for the really sad ending. I hope I helped.

Don't get me started on how many fantasy books I like. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Culfer, Young wizards series by Dianne Duane, Maximum Ride by James Patterson, The Forgotten realms books by various authors, though some of those are sad and I dislike sad.

one really good science fiction book is "The Host"

Re: Book Suggestions

Yup. I've read them and am eagerly awaiting the third. I love those. Partially because their excelent fanticy, but also because they're real doorstoppers. I like big books and I cannot lie.

Patrick Rothfuss has two really good books out right now, The Name of the Wind and Wise Man's Fear. The third should be out soonish. He's a fantasy writer.
