Hey! I'm just curious to see if anyone read any good books lately? I'm starting on the Artemis Fowl Series. It's amazing!! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
I've read the first three so far!!!! <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyers was really good
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova was really good
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett owns...I'm currently re-reading it <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
Oooo, the list I could make. Lemme see...

Tales from the Flat Earth -Tanith Lee
The Blood Opera Series -Tanith Lee
Angel of Darkness -Charles de Lint
Violet & Claire -Francesca Lia Block
The Screwtape Letters -C.S. Lewis
Roots -Alex Haley
Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets -David Simon

Those are just the ones I've been reading recently. *purr* I'd recommend anything by Tanith Lee, Robin McKinley, Charles de Lint, Neil Gaiman or Kim Harrison. *nodnod*
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood is good if you liked 1984 by George Orwell.

Jane Eyre is also very good. It takes a while to get into the style of writing if you're not used to reading classic novels, but it's very much worth it.

I’m still really into Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series. And now she’s got a Men of the Otherworld nook in the way which I’m even more excited about since I love how she writes from most of her male characters perspectives.

And recently I got into a similar series by Patricia Briggs that puts some fun new twists on done to death character concepts. I especially love how she does vampires and werewolves (otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered with how much they’ve been done to death and the same way) as well as her incorporation of Fae.
I just finished Becka Cooper: Terrier by Tamora Pierce. Young, magically talented girl kicks butt in the Lower City. Very good.

Oooo, did you read the Lioness Rampant series? Those were definately the awkward middle school years comfort books.

No, I haven't read those, but I did enjoy the Protector of the Small series.
