Hey ladies!! I need ideas for books to read! What is your favorite book, books, book series? I mostly enjoy fiction, right now I'm reading the Anne of Green Gables series for the third time (I love those books but they're getting stale)
Helllllllp!!!!

It's kind of a long series but I have really enjoyed Fall of the Giants by Ken Follet. It's a 3 book series. I have only finished the first one so far but I like it! Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres.

I have two favorite book series:

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

The Dark Tower by Stephen King

They are really different from each other but I LOVED both and they take a nice big chunk of time to read They are not everyone's style but H2G2 has me laughing the whole way through and I absolutely could NOT put down the dark towers when I was reading it.

I recently read the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. They are young adult but very good!

I used to read all the time, now I never feel like I have the brain power when I'm actually not working or busy. My mom bought me a book for my birthday and I am trying really hard to get it read, but I haven't read much of it at all.

I'm reading the Cassandra Clare novels The Mortal Instruments (several books) and The Infernal Devices (several books). I haven't been able to put them down.

Thanks to everyone!!!

Btw if anyone is wondering, it is my opinion that the Hunger Games first book is very good but the second two are a comPLETE bore. I was very disappointed
Haha

I love books by Emily Giffin. She writes light hearted chick lit type romance. Her books are funny, too. She wrote Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof, among others.

I really enjoy the classics. Any of Jane Austen's, The Count of Monte Cristo, and The Phantom of the Opera are just a few of my favorites. Sphere by Michael Chrichton was also a really good one. The Princess Bride is another favorite.
