I need some good book suggestions.

I want to down load some books to my Kindle to read on the beach.

I am ordering the new James Patterson. Does any one have any other suggestions.

BTW - I hated 50 Shades!

  • I LOVE Jonathon Kellerman's Dr. Alex Delaware series. A psychologist who solves mysteries! Love it!

  • Do you like Nicholas Sparks? i love his books and to me, they are especially perfect for beach-reading. Im currently reading his novel Safe Haven, but I'd recommend any of his books (except for The Lucky One- not his best IMO)

    Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire was ok... a little more violence & sex than Nick Sparks novels but not anywhere near as raunchy as 50 shades.

    Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia if you're into witches/mystery kind of thing

    Hunger Games trilogy

  • Have you read Patricia cornwell’s Scarpetta books? It's a long series, and the last 3 aren't great, but the ones up to that point are.

  • Any of mine are good. :D

    I just finished Nora Roberts's The Witness. I thought it was a great book. If you haven't read it yet, I also loved The Help. I love reading Lisa Jackson, James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman, and Nora Roberts.

  • Barbara Kingsolver's "Flight Behavior"--a lot to do about monarch butterflies, and also about people.

  • They are:

    Tangled Deceit
    The Secrets He Kept
    Ripped Away

    I'm hoping to release my next one around the end of summer or early autumn. :)

  • Tangled Deceit is the one I read. If there were a way to send my copy to you, I would. :)
