I second Amy’s list! My 17yo dd really enjoyed The Lunar Chronicles last year. She also a fan of James Dashner (The Maze Runner). She also enjoys Gail Carringer series that begins with Etiquette and Espionage...oops that’s also on Amy’s list.
So glad to hear you and your family are safe and able to go home, Rose
Colleen, congratulations to your son!
A big thank you to Kareni for talking about The Ghost and Mrs. Muir by R. A. Dick. Loved this! I've seen the movie many times and always enjoyed it and after Kareni mentioned it I decided I just HAD to read the book. So glad I did! The banter between the Captain and Lucy was good and I liked having the extra characters there, too.
How Not to Run a B & B by Bobby Hutchinson. This was a mostly entertaining look at running a B&B. I read it early in the morning when I was having trouble sleeping.
I started a spooky read - In the Grip of It - and have about a quarter of it left to read. I would have read it during my sleepless nights but it was starting to freak me out a bit. Not so much the story but the style of writing is what is getting into my head. I'll finish it during the daytime.
Can I get a few suggestions from everyone? I'm trying to find some good books for my 10yo and 17yo daughters. Their birthdays are almost here and they both asked for books! It's hard to find stuff that they will like, haven't already read, and is quality and yet will not upset their dad. He is NOT a reader and tends to be very conservative in what he thinks the girls should read. sigh
My 10yo is a voracious reader and has asked for long books - over 300 pages.She's read so much that is appropriate for her age and it's really hard to find books that are long enough without being too adult. In the past she has enjoyed The Warrior series, the Little House books, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, the Hunger Games (yeah, I know - she's the youngest and everyone else had read it so I let her read it, too), and the All Creatures Great and Small series.
My 17yo hasn't been much of a reader in the past so I am anxious to find her some books that she will enjoy. She's read much of the same as my younger dd with the addition of manga like the Naruto series, Death Note, and My Love Story. She doesn't want romances and leans toward science fiction. Historical fiction is ok as long as it isn't centered on a girl who wants to meet a boy and get married, lol. So far I've gotten her Code Name Verity https://smile.amazon...2?ie=UTF8&psc=1and Redshirts https://smile.amazon...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
eta - Congratulations to everyone who has finished War and Peace - I'm still working on it.
ETA...Dd also enjoyed all The Ranger’s Apprentice books
