I'm in a rut with book choices and would love some suggestions. What do you ladies love to read?
what's your favorite book?
Least favorite?
Scariest?

I love Robert Jordans eye of the world series
The Longmire series
Anything zombie or apocalypse related
The hot zone was probably the scariest thing I've ever read.
Dean koontz Frankenstein series.
I generally hate any type of romance Nobel or overdone love stories.

Favorite book of all time Dune by Frank Herbert. The entire series is good, even the prequels.

Second favorite is probably The Gunslinger by Stephen King and all the subsequent books in the series.

Worst book, 50 Shades. I seriously couldn't even finish it.

I'm on a smutty paranormal romance romance kick right now. I'm reading Immortal, by JR Ward. The final in her Fallen Angel series that is kind of a spin off Black Dagger Brotherhood.

I just finished rereading Meljean Brook's Guardian series and it was sooooooooo good. I can not recommend these books enough.

I'm a big Stephen King fan but haven't read the Gunslinger. I definitely read that.

50 shades was bad beyond words lol.
Thank you I'll have to add those to the reading list!

The 50 Shades sucked.
I like about any Christian Romance author, Praying Circles Around Your Kids, and books by Jane Green.

Let's see....

The books I love are by these Authors....(going by authors because I re-read their books and collect them as well) These are the 'go to' authors although I have lots more that I like.

Jude Deveraux (love her Montgomerys and Taggerts)

Diane Mott Davidson

Joanne Fluke

Laurell K. Hamilton

Steve Berry

Dan Brown

Margaret Atwood

Sherrilyn Kenyon

and Patricia Briggs


The books I hate are a much shorter list and pretty much were from when I was in school with the exception of one series.

The one series was Twilight.

The rest of the books were...

Mac Beth

Hamlet

Lord of the Flies

Animal Farm

The Great Gatsby (double whammy on this one. Had to read it once in high school and once in college. Detested it both times)

The Old Man and the Sea

1984


Those are the ones I can remember.

both are good. the show takes stuff from the comics and put there own twist on things and the novels are base off the show.
