I got the new Kindle Fire. The only problem is that I have no idea what to read.

 

my request from the dragon cave community is to tell me your favorite books and book series.

 

I'm really into fiction and supernatural stuff but this is not only about me, recommend any kind of book and maybe it will help some other reader find his/her next read.

 

Thank you

From what I can gather, I think you might like the Skulduggery Pleasant series; it's about magic and sorcery and stuff, with a dash of humor and an increasingly dark tone.

Just finished Simon R Green's "Ghost Of A Chance"

 

It's book 1 of a new series and the first book of his I've picked up.

 

I really liked it. Was thinking of hunting down some of his earlier books for more.

 

Enjoy your kindle. I am hoping to get an ereader at some point but am annoyed by them not being universal. They tie you to one retailer, and as an Aussie I HATE the geographical restrictions some publishing houses impose.

 

Books remain unread on my iPhone and pc.

 

Think I'm a dead tree devotee.

I just got a nook tablet myself. These are the ones that I would recommend to anyone.

 

Any Book by either Douglas Preston or Lincoln Child. Their books are so well written, and there's no real genre they can be put in. They have a little bit of everything in them, I can't put them down.

 

They write a series of books that are about the New York Museum of Natural History and an FBI agent, except for book two, but it's still worth reading, it may have something to do with a later book. I haven't read them all yet. But here they are, in order

 

Relic

Mount Dragon

Relicary

Riptide

Thunderhead

The Ice Limit

The Cabinet of Curiosities

Stilllife with the Crows

Brimstone

Dance of Death

The Book of the Dead

The Wheel of Darkness

Cemetery Dance

Fever Dream

Cold Vengence

 

There's another series i guess that they are working on:

Gideon's Sword

Gideon's Corpse (2012)

 

There are other books by them too. I read Death Match and Utopia by Lincoln Child and liked the first one, but not the second. Just couldn't get into it but the concept of it was very interesting.

 

His other ones are: Deep storm and Terminal Freeze, and Third Gate (2012)

For Preston: The Codex, Tyrannosaur Cannon, Blasphemy, Jenny and Impact

 

 

I can also recommend the Pendragon Series by DJ Machale. Awesome books. It's about a Young boy who becomes a traveler and has to travel to different territories and stop Saint Dane from taking over and ruling them all.

What is Storm Front about?

 

Dead Witch Walking, is that really romancey?

The Dresden series is about a modern day Wizard "Harry Dresden"

 

It's amazing, very clever, funny, and so well written.

The book plot-lines are superb, the character's are excellent and the one liners are to die for xd.png

 

Dead Witch Walking isn't "romancy" .. there are on eof too slightly steamy scenes, but not romancy.

Witches doing what Witches do best (making spells/potitions to help themselves or others - My fav is her sleepy time spell she loads into a splat gun lol)

 

Vamps being "real" vamps (no sparkling in THESE books for sure!) Hunting their prey by whatever means necessary wink.gif

 

and then there is Jenks .. a Pixie.. with a massive dislike for Disney's Tinkabell

Some of Jenk's "swear words" may not be for the faint hearted xd.png

 

Love both of these series <3

 

TD.x.

Depends on the kinds of books you like to read...

 

If you're into fantasy, I'd suggest reading:

 

Ice by Sarah Beth Durst

Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George

East by Edith Pattou

Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler

Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

The Redwall Series by Brian Jacques

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle

 

Those are a few of my favorite fantasy novels. If you're more into realistic fiction, I'd suggest

 

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Cut by Patricia McCormick

Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford

After by Amy Efaw

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

I just finished Variant last night. At first it's just good, but eventually it has so many "what just happened?!" moments that you can't put it down.

You might not like it, but The Kiterunner is amazing. ^^ However, it has a few scenes which some readers may not feel comfortable with. So if you're very sensitive, don't read it. Otherwise, it's amazing. <3

I believe that NightShade is a good book if you are into werewolves and love triangles.

 

Oh also The Host by stephie Myer is a good one too! ^^

The Strange Angels series by Lili St. Crow is pretty awesome.

Dru is a lil too repetitive though, but the whole concept is grand.

 

Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCathery was awesome too.

But it's complex reading.

 

I recently got a comci called Hack Slash and that's pretty intense.

It's about Cassie Hack, who kills slashers (Jason, Freddy, Micheal...)

LOVE!

She's super goth too >:3
