crap There was just an aftershock where I live, and it was really freakin scary. It wasn't a trembling earthquake but more like a thud. It felt like the ground underneath just collapsed or something. I hate earthquakes.

Okay Anyways... I was wondering if any of you guys know any good books to read? I've been itching to read a new novel, or series. So if you guys do have any please type out the title and author or something. Thanks.

You should read Brom's "the Plucker". His illustrations are those that would be censored if it were in a kids book, but it's a great story about good against evila nd it worth to take a day off to read it. It took me two hours to finish it and I had to buy it after it was that good.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. My favorite book.

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller. It's a play, but available in most book shops.

Galá;pagos by Kurt Vonnegut. An interesting twist where the end is given away in the beginning. As the story progresses, the main mystery becomes "how did they get there?"

If you like a good mystery I'll assume you like crime/thriller esc ones aswell.
Kathy Reichs and Patrica Cornwell are at the top of the game with crime/mystery books If you're looking for a good new read.

If you're into hot vampires there is J.R. Wards 'Black Dagger Brotherhood' series, it a bit Rated R though so. Meh.

There's also Amelia Atwater Rhodes, shes a pretty cool author.

The classics: Chandler, Hammett, Charteris if you can find him (and pre-1940 if you have a selection).

A Long Way Down, by Nick Hornby. Comedic and sort of bleak, and it's gotten a lot of criticism for being pretty blob like as for plot, but I love it.

All of Terry Pratchett's stuff D<

And Good Omens, which is a collaboration of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Well... if your interested in mysteries, might I recommend Body Double by Tess Gerritsen. It's excellent in terms of a mystery, as is pretty much anything by John Saul.

Happy Reading! :library:

Hmm, mystery....... Well, if you like the nitty-gritty realistic kind, I suggest Dennis Lehane's books. They're all very good, but I especially liked his Kenzie-Gennaro series (which actually makes up 5 of the 7 books I know of that he's written). It's about two Boston detectives that solve some pretty interesting cases. Sounds generic, but they're pretty good.
They go in order of:

"A Drink Before the War"
"Darkness, Take My Hand"
"Sacred"
"Gone, Baby, Gone"
"Prayers for Rain"

If you like bit more of psychological mystery then I suggest "Shutter Island" by the same author. Takes place in an Azkaban-style asylum. That automatically means it's good, least to me;) There's some interesting twists in it and I've got to say it's my favorite Dennis Lehane book.

Good luck with your quest for decent literature and sorry if I rambled on to much ^^;
