    It depends: what kinds of stuff do you like to read?

    @Lavache_Beadsman I don't really have a preference, I'm open to anything. But I love things like Harry Potter, and Agatha Christi and thriller, fantasy, and I like biographies too. Sci-fi um. Actually anything, I just want good books to read :smiley:

    Hm, I don't read a lot of those kinds of books, but have you ever read Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz? I read it a long time ago, but I remember really liking it (don't be fooled by the awful film adaptation).

    If you like biographies and memoirs, I'd suggest reading Christopher Hitchens' "Hitch 22." It's incredibly written, and he was also a really interesting guy. Lit by Mary Karr is also very good.

    Some books I recommend to anyone who asks:

    A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
    A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again by David Foster Wallace
    On Beauty by Zadie Smith
    The Collected Stories by Amy Hempel
    The Broom of The System by David Foster Wallace
    Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

    Hope this is helpful!

    If you like dark fantasy, I can recommend the Coldfire trilogy by C.S. Friedman. It was a long time since I was so consumed by a book as by these ones, and I'm waiting impatiently for my order of another one of her books to arrive at the bookstore. The wonderful thing is that you don't know whether they'll live or die, like you know with certain other authors, but you're left with a combination of hope and fear until either they die or the book ends and they've survived.

    I'd guess not, they were published in the 80's... But it's probably worth to check anyway!

    If you're into dystopian fiction then I'd recommend Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor. It's a refreshingly new take on the genre.

    Let me start you down a rabbit hole:

    Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death - MC Beaton.

    You've only got another 26 books in the series to go!

    If you like YA, you should read Me And Earl And The Dying Girl. Also, Nicola Yoon. And Ibi Zoboi. Oh, and I just finished I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, and it is fantastic! And you should read Frankie and Far From The Tree and One and See You In The Cosmos (that one's not really YA, but it still is good) and Sparrow and Wonder (also not YA, but still good) and Gem & Dixie and Ask The Passengers and The War That Saved My Life and The One And Only Ivan (those last two also aren't YA, I don't think, but they are really good). Also, every living human being alive should read or be read The Day The Crayons Quit which happens to be a picture book about crayons that resign from their job as crayons. Also, the children's series Clementine is pretty good, too. DFTBA!
