Yeah, so I know that we do this every quarter or so and then I always promise that I'll compile all of the suggestions into one Master List of Wonder and then I don't and then I need suggestions again but can't find the old posts since I don't use the tag section correctly and then I need to ask you all again--but I need some book suggestions.
Specifically, I need some AMAZING, COMPELLING, cannot-put-it-down-and-pity-the-non-reading-fools-as-you-read-it type of books. I have read so many duds this year that it isn't even funny. I've also started a lot of books and just said, "forget it" halfway through because I couldn't bring myself to care about what happened next. I miss that "swept away" feeling you get with a really good book.
I just finished "Between the Assassinations" and it was fine. Not great, not good, just fine.
I can't even begin to list what I like or have read but I do love Wally Lamb, Dave Eggers, John Steinbeck and Margaret George, so similarly genius authors would be good. I also like historical fiction or things set in interesting time periods or situations that I can read more books about, like stuff about old circuses or interesting royal families, etc. Does that make sense? I'll read just about anything though, which is what has led to this problem of reading so many books that kind of suck.
So please tell me the last REALLY good book that you read and you loved.
