Any Readers in the group?

I love to read it's my big hobby besides Piano. So I am wondering who also has a passion for books and what series would you suggest? I have read most of the common series sadly, The Hunger Games, 50 Shades of Gray, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, even The Outlander Series by Diana Gabledon. So I am looking for maybe not so common titles.

I read loads but it's ages since I read a series.

I did really like the Northern Lights trilogy (Philip Pullman) though. I'm not sure how well known it ended up being outside of the UK but it was hugely popular here.

I haven't read them myself but the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo is the first in a Scandinavian crime series that did really well and is meant to be brilliant. I really like Scandinavian crime writing.

I used to read all the item, now i am lucky to finish a book in a year, it is really sad. I am just too busy playing with Lilly and doin g other activity's along with ebay, and the normal house hold chores.

I know this may see childish but i loved reading the Chronicles of Narnia, I read all the books,it was easy and fun to read.
The last series i read was Eragon books.
I have been meaning to read the girl with the dragon tattoo only got past he first 3 pages Sad and i want to start the hunger games series.
I really have to dedicate the time to read anything.

I love the Narnia books too! I keep meaning to read them again. I'm sure I'll share them with my kids when they are old enough to listen to chapter stories.

Right now I'm reading I Thought My Father Was God and Other True Tales from NPR's National Story Project. It works well for me right now because it is a compilation of short tales. Most are only one to three pages long so I can read one or a few stories at a time when I have a moment. I read nonfiction and memoirs mostly. I also love humorist writers like David Sedaris, Ayun Halliday, and Bill Bryson.

I am currently reading a nonfiction book. Its the sequel to "the happiness project" called "happier at home". Any body else read them? Not really self help, but it make me think about growth.

I do like these kinds of books and I'll have to add them to my to read list. I read The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown a couple months ago after I watched her TED talk. It was a good read when I felt like I was still getting bogged down by some stuff after my PPD.
