What a bummer

I was so excited and motivated to get to the end of the Twilight series...and now I am kind of bummed. I was about to go to pick up a book to read before I went to sleep, and I didn't have one. So grabbed a few of the books I had purchased on a whim that looked interesting...but were completely not what I expected and will be in my garage sale next weekend.

So, I need some suggestions. I have always been a huge fan of the movies based on Nicholas Sparks love stories, so I was thinking that was a possibility. Also, there is the current Eragon series...but I kind of want to read something not targeted for the teenage audience.

So let me have it, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Hey there. I recommend For My Daughters by Barbara Delinsky or The Summer of You & Me by Anne Brasheres. I am in the middle of The Shack which I am sure you have heard a lot of people talk about. And I finished Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins which was definitely an easy and interesting read.I am not a big fan of Survivor and still really enjoyed the book. It will be another series with the way it ended.

I recommend the US Weekly series. It's wonderful.

I recommend "Lucy" by Ellen Feldman. Its a historical fiction novel written in the 1st person. Its about FDR and his mistress Lucy Mercer. It's VERY interesting.

Uhm I always loved Mary Higgins Clark mysteries. And someday I plan on reading the Left Behind series, cool premise!

One of my friends that liked Twilight recommended "The Host", so I will let you know how that turned out.

Thanks for all the recommendations...keep them coming, I am adding them to my wish list on books a million. I live about 30 miles from any major book store, so I order everything online.

Go to AmblesideOnline.org - it's the site that I use for our homeschool curiculum and they use lots of 'living books' - I sometimes forget that I'm reading outloud to Dalton for his lessons because I'm so interested in the story! Just a thought - especially any of the 'free reading' books they list for each year.
