    I couldn't handle the iPad mini, so I broke down and got the paperwhite. I LOVE it, and it's small so you can put it in your purse to take w/you anywhere.

    If you like mysteries, I loved the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. I read all 10 and loved them all. The first one is Still Life: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel. I liked all of Gillian Flynn's books: Gone Girl, Dark Places: A Novel, and Sharp Objects: A Novel.

    I liked Liane Moriarty's books, they are a bit lighter. The Husband's Secret, What Alice Forgot, and a couple more by her.
    We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver was good, scary but good (not horror).

    That's just a few, I love to read too. The best one I mentioned is 11-22-63. I wish I hadn't read it yet so I could read it again for the first time. It's a big long book, but oh so good!
    thanks for the Stephen King rec! Love his work Also going to write Louise Penny down on my list.

    OMG, I'm a huge Liane Moriarty fan too; I've read all her stuff with the exception of What Alice Forgot which I started but just could not get into for some reason. I liked The Husband's Secret, The Hypnotist's Love Story and Big Little Lies. I hope you will like Outlander as much as I did, Donna!

    Right now i'm reading 2 one is a "Lineage of Grace" by Francine Rivers. This one is for my book study so it's taking a while to get through it. "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini. That's so funny we are both reading that. I'm on chapter 16 and it's good.

    I read everything from crappy romance novels to thrillers.
    Another one i was completely moved by was "Finding me: A decade of darkness" by Michelle Knight. She was one of the women they found in Cleveland after years of being kidnapped and tortured.


    OH i can't forget this one: "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers....it was SO. GOOD. I would like to describe it but it's one of those you just have to read.

    Anything by Augusten Burroughs is always a good read. he's funny!

    One i just finished is a thrilled called "A Dark Lure" by Loreth Anne White. It was free from Amazon and i LOVED it. It was one of the best books i've ever read.
    thanks for all the recs, Jennie. I'm totally enjoying A Thousand Splendid Suns right now, still in the beginning stages though.

    you must squeeze the time in, @2BullyMama I bring a book to work with me and read on my lunch hour. Then at night before bed time. I don't have cable TV anymore so that helps, LOL!

    I used to read a lot more than I do these days. Hoping this thread will inspire me.
    @Marine91 what are the names of the books you're reading? I also love Sci-fi or SteamPunk like the "Dark Tower" sage by Stephen King. Can't even believe he wrote those books.

    A few years ago I really got into young adult sci fi like The Hunger Games which to be honest, I think is too mature for teens. Anyway, the books were awesome. If you haven't read them, consider it. They're amazing books.

    I also loved "Pure" Amazon.com: Pure (9781455503056): Julianna Baggott: Books
    and "Fuse" Amazon.com: Fuse (Pure Trilogy) (9781455503100): Julianna Baggott: Books also set in a Dystopian world.
    Both are part of a trilogy but I haven't read the third yet. First two are very good though.

    Love the scifi classics like Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury; Brave New World by Aldous Huxley; Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell; and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.
    The last is difficult to understand if you're not familiar with slavic languages.
    I mean you'll understand the book, but I think it loses some of it's "meaning" if you don't understand their weird use of slavic words as slang.

    Two of my favorite Authors are Margaret Atwood and Charles Bukowski
    I think every woman should read "A Handmaids Tale" by Atwood. It's also set in a dystopian society and it's such a reminder of how much freedom we as women have, and how easily it could be lost. Just an amazing book.

    Atwood also has an amazing trilogy. I couldn't put these books down.
    "Oryx and Crake" Oryx and Crake: Margaret Atwood: 9780385721677: Amazon.com: Books
    "Year of the Flood" The Year of the Flood: Margaret Atwood: 9780307455475: Amazon.com: Books
    and "MaddAddam" MaddAddam (The Maddaddam Trilogy): Margaret Atwood: 9780307455482: Amazon.com: Books
    I love most of what she writes, but I think the above is just some of her best work.

    Charles Bukowski
    Amazing American poet and writer. I really have no idea what genre to put in..lol. I think most of his work is based on his own life though.
    Two of my favorites by him are "Factotum" http://www.amazon.com/Factotum-Charl...5HNMRWEQ4TW1P0
    and "Post Office" http://www.amazon.com/Post-Office-No...arles+bukowski

    That's a great compilation there @nycbullymama . I find it interesting to hear what others here on EBN like to read, and the genres you're all drawn to. I have heard very good things about the Hunger Games books themselves and that they're worth reading. I think Outlander can fit in the fantasy and maybe even sci fi category as it deals with time travel.
