I've been reading all the young adult dystopian books lately. Lol. I read the first two books in the Matched series and read the first two books in the Delirium series. I liked them both. I also read the Lorien Legacies which is more like science fiction but not in a confusing way. Lol. There's two books in that one too and I've read them both. Right now I'm reading World Without End which is the sequel to Pillars of the Earth which was also awesome. Very brutal though....I'm a nerd, I read a lot.

AAWWW SNAP! I loved the Matched series, and The Lorien Legacies, haven't heard of the others but will have to look it up.

Fifty Shades is ok, I have read the series a couple times (I read once to enjoy and twice to dissect). I have a few problems with it (mostly character flaws), but it's not so bad that I would discourage anyone from reading them. I enjoyed the Twilight fanfic of it better but eh.

I am currently rereading a series by Shelly Crane (small time ebook writer) called Significance. Decent series, but I believe the next book in the series is due out soon so I am rereading it.

Oh and I am reading A Walk to Remember, and a bunch of different fanfics.

I'm reading the 50 Shades books. They're good, not written really well, but interesting enough to read.

I love reading too and would love some suggestions.

Fun enough.
Very light reading.

Oh oh oh!!

A bit or a lot heavier but I think a really well written yet disturbing book is 'we need to talk about kevin'

Tried to watch the film but haven't got past the first 10 minutes as seems too far away from the book... Not that I have given it that much of a chance to know.

I am a huge reader - about 10 books a week. I am getting a new ereader for my birthday as I wore out the one I received almost 3 years ago Biggrin

If you like erotica anything by Lora Leigh or Lori Foster. The Hunger Games series is awesome. I re-read the Anne of Green Gables series every year, I also re-read the Harry Potter series each year.

That's a lot of books!!

On holidays I could maybe get through 4 ir 5 in 2 week... Bur never that many!!!
Awesome!!!

M and I like to listen to audio books in bed.
We have just finished listening to the last sookie stackhouse that's out.
Love the books!! Sadly they have tainted the series.

Love roald Dahl... Witches is the latest... Although we have listened to most of them.

Liz- ya it is a lot of books. Last time I was tested (I was 16) I was reading over 2000wpm I suspect it is higher now. To give you an example - each of the 50 Shades books took me about 2 hours to complete - and yes I remember details.

Not having enough book space is why I happy to have an e-reader, just transferred 350 to my new reader Biggrin

I just finished the 50 shades series. prior to that I read Like Dandelion Dust (Karen Kingsbury), and the Glendale Series by Anne Goering. (3 diff ones) VERY good books. LOVED them all. I feel like I havent read anything that wasn't work related in the last few years so this summer I made it a point to read fun stuff.
