Time for a round of...

...recommend a book to a fellow nestie. I need to find some new books to read :)

Re: Time for a round of...

  • Lauren, not sure if this is your cup of tea but I've been reading The Hunger Games series. The movie is coming out soon and a friend recommended reading the book first. I am becoming obsessed, lol.

  • Another vote for Hunger Games, but you knew I would say that I think.  I'm reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo right now, and while its a bit slow, its interesting.  Have you ever checked out Goodreads?  You can put in books you've read or want to read and it will give suggestions. Its a great site.

  • I read a book last week, Wife by Wednesday by Catherine Bybee  and I just finished a book today, South Beach Cinderella by Sharon Potts.

    Neither book has very much depth, which I like sometimes. Sometimes I just want to read and not have to remember what is going on with each charactor, or try to figure out who murdered who.

  • Another vote for The Hunger Games Series. 

    Best books I've read in a long while, though the first is the best. 

  • I don't know much about the Hunger Games. What is the appeal that's got everyone so obsessed?

    You won't be able to put it down.  Run, don't walk, buy the first one, and you will be hooked.  I haven't read three books that fast in a LONG time.  

  • I can't wait until I can read something other than school books.
  • I just finished book 2 of the Hunger Games.. Catching Fire.  I liked it just as much as the first.  They are action packed, suspenseful, emotional.. I don't know.  They are addicting.

    I have also read the first 2 of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2nd one is Girl who Played with Fire).  I think I liked the 2nd one better but both were good.  The first one is REALLY slow in the beginning, almost to the point of not wanting to read it, and then it gets awesome. 

    If you want something a little lighter, I really liked Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson (not his usual thriller genre, but more of a lighthearted romantic fantasy).

    I also recently read Room.  I forget the name of it but it's a weird, interesting book about a girl who is held captive in a room by her rapist for years and even has a child by him.  It's kind of Jaycee Dugard-esque but fictional.  Although speaking of her, my friend just read her memoir, A Stolen Life, and said it was very good.  I would like to read that one in the near future.
