IN NEED OF SOME GOOD READING MATERIAL

I am in need of some good reading material. I need some fantasy to escape. I am rather a creature of habit. When I like certain authors then I will only read their books. But now I am in need of new authors to read and books to enjoy.

Only problem is that our local library is not very well stocked and most of the bookshops are very expensive. I don't mind paying a lot of money for a good book. But one mistake I usually make is that after I bought a book, it doesn't read as well as it did in the shop and I don't seem able to get past the first three chapters. I suppose you can say I am a fussy reader. If I don't like a certain writing style or the voice in which the author writes, I won't the finish a book no matter how much I paid for it.

I never read a lot in the bookshops because of the way the clerks always glare at you but next time I will simply just not give a damn. Because there is no way I am spending another dime on a book that sucks.

  1. Honestly, it's been a while since I read any good books so the ones that I mention are older and you may have read them.
    The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson. This is a serious time commitment.
    Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is great for a laugh.
    I tried Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series. It's not bad.
    I am enjoying your posts.

  2. Thanks for the book recommendations. I will definitely try some of them out. My sister has actually read the Stephanie Plum series and she enjoyed it. She loved the grandmother especially and LuLu.

    I am happy you're enjoying my posts. Sometimes I astound myself with all the stupid stuff I get myself into.
