Any good books lately?

I am a huge reader and usually have two books on the go. I recently struck up a conversation with a fellow hockey mom and got some good suggestions for reading material. Anyone here have any favorite authors? I read anything and everything. I just finished Jane Austen's "persuasion" and "the time traveller's wife" (which is head and shoulders above the movie BTW!) and my latest addiction has been Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series and "Hunger Games" series...Any recommendations?

I am a huge reader too. I have been reading for a contest at our local library. I love Jane Austen, James Patterson, Karen Kingsbury, Angela Hunt, Neta Jackson, to name a few. I have heard Philippa Gregory is wonderful. I haven't read The Time Traveler's Wife. It is on my list of book to be read.

Great question!

I don' have a library in my region, so I am part of an online library, where I order a book, they mail it to me for free and I get postage paid to return it.

I loved Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I read it many years ago - great books. I love James Patterson - I pretty much read everything he writes-

If you like series, the "hunger games" is a trilogy and quite suspenseful, set in the future but not sci fi...also" the girl with the dragon tattoo" trilogy is worth mentioning. I also like Lisa Gardner's Detective DD Warren books...some titles are Alone, the Neighbor, and my favorite is Live to Tell.
