  • Hmmm, I have several going right now. "Intensity" by Dean Koontz. I have read it a bajillion times but I love it. "The Persian Boy" by Mary Renault. It's an older book, but if you like historical fiction, it's really good. It's about Bagoas to persian eunch that was lovers with Alexander the Great.
    I am also working on "Blood Noir" by Laurell K. Hamilton. I have been into her series forever. (I am almost done with it). And this evening I started "The Academy" by Bentley Little. Love him, his books freak me out.
    Oh, did I mention I was addicted to books and reading?

  • The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman...it will change the way you think about your spouse and yourself. I had if for years, and just read it after some intense difficulties with my husband. It has changed me.

  • Recently:
    Duma Key, by Stephen King
    The latest in the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz- all of the books in this series are quite good!
    Pretty much anything by Stephen King I like..I love the way he infuses so much life into his characters and the way his books interconnect through certain plot points and characters and throughlines. Some of my favorites are: the Stand, It, The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon, Desperation and it's counterpart The Regulators, The Talisman and it's counterpart, Black House (written with Peter Straub)
    Also, most of the Prey books by John Sandford...Rules of Prey, Hidden Prey, Sudden Prey, etc. Most of them are great, though there were a couple in the middle of the series that felt like a ghostwriter or something...just not the same impact.
    Happy Reading! :)
