Hello everyone:
My friend has recommended "Warriors" to me and it is a very long series. I am currently reading the first book and can see it may have potential. I was wondering if you guys think I should bother reading all of the books to the excrutiatingly long series...I mean I would any book anyone recommends to me, as long as it isn't too romance-based. However, this book is about cats, what's more, cat- clans.
Apparently, this series is very well known and many readers enjoy it.


Me too! I love that series!

The Other Boleyn Girl (I read nonstop for an entire day because of this book)
Geek Love (possibly the most original book I've ever read)
Call of the Wild (one the classics where I actually agree it's worthy of being a classic)
Spud (if you need a laugh)
The Kitchen God's Wife (I stayed up till really late in the night reading it because it was that good)

hanatarosan: Have you ever read a book/ books that you simply love and feel like sharing with others? Well, post the titles of the books and the why you like it. Post a short synopsis if you want. WARNING: NO SPOILERS ALLOWED.

I like the entire Sherlock Holmes series written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The ingenius way of how the detective mind works is something out of this world. It's a detective novel.


oh! oh! I like reading detective stories!!! I actually highly recommend " hardy boys " by franklin w. dixon

I'm sorry I know this forum is for recommending books but I'd like to ask if anyone knows about any good books that deal with either: horror, supernatural, psychological, historical novel, mystery, science (specifically biological (even more specifically parasites)), or social that would be great. Sorry I'm not really into romance or fantasy much.

Hmm. I guess a book series I enjoyed was the Monster series by David Wellington. Your gonna want to start off with Monster Island though or you lose continuity. Yeah their zombie novels if anyone here is into that.

The Gemma Doyl Series is really good, by Libba Bray. It's a trilogy, with A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing. It's being made into a movie, but they're still writing the script.
Another good book is the Tithe Tiology by Holly Black, with Tithe, Valiant, and Ironside.
Also, try any of Scott Westerfeld's books, like the Uglies Series, So Yesterday, Peeps, and the Midnighters Triology (Really big fan of the last one!)

I love Peony in Love by Lisa See, it was a wonderful read, and I have recently purchased another one of her books, which I will be reading soon.
Also, Empress Orchid by Anchee Min is an amazing book, it displays so many emotions, I only finished it yesterday, and I am currently reading the sequel, The Last Empress.

Also, I throughrly enjoyed Visibility by Boris Starling, and it was based on a true story.

Try
The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park and Next by Michael Crichton (lots of science)
The Book Thief by Mark Zusak
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
The Lady in the Lake by Raymond Chandler
The Juror by John Grisham
Stephen King (scared silly)
Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

No need to be sorry. This is after all the purpose of this forum ------ to recommend books.
