Ok so I'm new and I've never done forum posting or anything like this so I'm sure I'll screw it up somehow, but here goes nothing. Since I'm new and I'm only acquainted with a select few of you I thought i would get to know some you by the books that you like and the ones you're currently reading. This could very well be a stupid idea, but it won't be the first or last time I pursue a half baked idea.

I'm currently reading Coastliners by Joann Harris. Shes a french author so, her books usually take place in some quaint village somewhere in France. She wrote the book Chocolate, that was later turned into a movie starring Johnny Depp (yum). She writes a really good book. Usually there is a touch of mystery and yeah it's kinda romancy, but not mushy.

Currently finishing The Quickening series by Fiona McIntosh. Not bad, but not blow-my-socks-off.

I always have Jim Butcher on hand, Dresden Files and Codex Alera, as those are my favorites. Next up is my guilty-pleasure authors Kim Harrison and James Rollins. He is getting predictable lately, but I love some of his earlier books. And The Hallows, Rachel Morgan series is just fun, sexy and a great escape.

Methinks Den has his books in the Dewey Decimal System...

I'm a big fan of the Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin series series too. Same with the Dresden by Jim Butcher series... but my heart belongs to Neil Gaiman. His work on the Sandman series is absolutely amazing. In fact, everything I've read of his has been amazing (Neverwhere, Good Omens, American Gods, Anansi Boys, My Night With Kreep's Mom).

I started A Game of Thrones about a year ago. I really like it, but I haven't finished it yet. Maybe by the time I finish it George R. R. Martin will have finished the series...or have died(Probably the later since he's a heart attack candidate).

Like Star Wars much? lol
Posted Aug 11, 12 · OP
Never heard of Jim Butcher. I must look into him. Anybody ever read the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich?
Posted Aug 11, 12 · OP
Everything by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is right at the top of my list. Aside from them, I like Malcolm Gladwell, Frank McCourt, Michael Ende, Frank Herbert, Herman Hesse, and Nick Hornby. But I'll read anything I can get my hands on.

I just finished a book by Nick Hornby. It was called Juliet Naked. It was very interesting. I liked it a lot.
