Looking For Book Recommendations

Akasha Needs New Books Now!

BuzzSugar Community user Akasha submitted the following plea to The Book Club group.

Okay, so I just finished all of the Stieg Larsson books, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, and I loved them. The problem is, I am now having great book withdrawal.

Does anyone have any recommends? I'm leaving for vacation in a couple of weeks, and laying on the beach without a good book is unacceptable. For that matter so is flying. Or waiting line at the DMV (something I have to do this week).

I also just read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society and it was fantastic. If you're looking for something more in the "tangled web" genre though, I really like Micheal Gruber's "The Book of Air and Shadows."

I just finished The Girl Who Played With Fire, and I'm waiting for The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest to come out in paperback (I want all three books that I own to be the same edition), so I feel your pain! I picked up The Pillars of the Earth to get me through. It's a long book and I've only just started, but I'm really liking it so far. It's about the building of a cathedral, which takes hundreds of years so it crosses multiple generations, and it looks like it's going to be fascinating.Other good reads: The Glass Castle, The History of Love, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (sorry I don't have any thriller suggestions!)

I was going to say Hunger Games but kismekate beat me to it, its an amazing trilogy, the final book comes out in a couple weeks... right now while I am waiting for that book to come out I am reading something burrowed/blue, very good if you are in to chick lit, I want to read the girl with the dragon tattoo next =]

Faithful Place. The best book I've read this year and I read a lot. It's a mystery/thriller set in Ireland.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society...weird name, I know, but such a great book! It's witty, well-written, and a unique, fun read. I highly recommend it!

For another great series, check out The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Besides those, some of my recent favorites are: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint by Brady Udall
