What to read next?

Thursday, April 1st, 2010 @ 8:25 am | Books

I’m finishing Harry Potter 6 today and I’ll probably finish 7 over the weekend or early next week.

What do I read next?! I finished all the Anne Rice books I care to read for a while. Now I’m finishing Harry Potter…

I could go on to more fiction.  I could go for non fiction.  Perhaps a classic of some sort?

Ideas??

      I’ve heard the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is really good.

      I’m hoping to read them soon.

      Currently I’m reading the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I have about 300 pages left of the last book. I’ll let you know if those are worth while. Thus far I’m on the fence…

      Or you could try this:

      Along that same line, you could read The Host. It was sort of predictable, but I still liked it.

      Not sure I’m up for another Stephanie Meyer at the moment, but I’ll keep her in mind.

      It appears you are the only one that reads my blog sonja…

      Nope! I read it! I just have been out of the loop with Sean being gone.

      The Janet Evanovich books are great! Stephanie Plum is HILARIOUS!

      Another series I enjoy is the “Outlander” series. Its a fiction book about this gal who is a WWII nurse who is honeymooning with her husband in Scotland and while she is touring finds some stones (like Stonehenge). Anyway, these stones are mystical of some sorts, and she ends up getting transported back 200 years to Scotland back in the 1700′s! She meets this group of Highlanders and it goes on about their adventures. It’s GREAT! The author (Diana Gabaldon) is very detailed and includes some great history! There’s 6 books in the series and they are all quite long. I think you’d enjoy them!

      well I will definitely keep all those in mind. sounds interesting.
      although I recently found a renewed interest in reading some ‘classics’. I think I’m reading Animal Farm and 1984 next.
      After that, I may consider the above suggestions.
      Thanks guys!!

      by the way, i’m still reading hp7 and am having some very mixed feelings. a very love-hate thing. i have a feeling i will not be satisfied when it ends, especially since i already have a good idea of how it ends based on people spoiling it over the years… we’ll see. i’m sure i’ll have to make a post on it when it’s all over.

      I felt HP7 ended VERY well…I was happy with it. Let me know what you think!
