I'm looking for another fast book. One which you started to read but you just couldn't put down. Any recommendations?

My dad just read Inferno by Dan Brown and said it was an exciting non-stop sort of chase with a surprise ending. He really enjoyed it.

I'm reading Inferno by Dan Brown. It was hard for me to get into but once I got into it, I can't put it down!

What kind of books do you like? I've read a couple historical fiction books that I can put down.

My sister and I have a book blog and you could find a book there: http://mysistersbookkeeper.blogspot.com/

I just got done reading Dawn of a Thousand Nights by Tricia Goyer. It's Historical Fiction with a bit of romance from a Christian viewpoint. It's a WWII story but about the Japanese conflict not the German one. Super well researched and REALLY well written. My first time reading from this author and I can't wait to grab more! :)

Oh yes, the psy/changeling (http://www.nalinisingh.com/psy.php) series of Nalini Singh. I read them all in german, but think itīs the same in the original: CANīt stop, they are awesome!

I really liked The Change series by S.M. Stirling. The first three books are time travel/alternate history. The rest of the series (and there are a couple more than listed here) are post-apocalyptic/alternate history. They are kind of "guy" books in that alternate history is often thought of as a male genre, but there are some amazingly strong female characters in these books.

This was the last book I read. One Summer
by Baldacci, David

It was a fast read for me. Thanks for the recommendations. I'll add a few to my want to read list.

The series I read and just couldn't put down was the Kathleen Turner (No not that Kathleen Turner!) series by Tiffany Snow. It's a 5 book series, but only 3 books have been released so far. Book 4 is coming out this Dec and I definitely can't wait! They are only available via e-books at amazon but OOHHHH SOOOO GOOOOODDDDD! I can borrow them to anyone if you have a kindle. Just PM me. They are easy reads and HIGHLY recommended!
Book 1: No Turning Back by Tiffany Snow (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AI1L6N6/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title)
Book 2: Turn to Me by Tiffany Snow (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AI1L6OU/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title)
Book 3: Turning Point by Tiffany Snow (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AI1L6OA/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title)

And if you read them, who do you vote for Blane or Kade??

Thanks for your blog, Becky. I must have added about 30 books from there. Amazing job on your blog and boy do you read quickly. Love how you have the book review plus your own version of the review and also loved how you had the rating number at the bottom of each post. That really helped me in deciding if I really want to add to my wishlist or not. Also love the WWII books.

Just added them to my wishlist. I now have 2 books out from the library but those sound really good especially the over 4 ratings on each one.

If you like paranormal - the Fever series by Karen Marie Monning is a "can't go to bed until I finish it" type of series!

I just downloaded the series from Karen Marie Moning. If it's as good as you say, I'm glad there are 5 books! :)

i'm a big fan of Linda Howard, Sandra Brown and Nora Roberts (also writes as JD Robb, I have this whole series about 36 books). I am totally hooked on audible books so I can scrap and "read" at the same time.

Oh oh, I just read a book that was so intriguing, I read it all in two sittings. It was actually a required text for one of my women's studies courses, but it's a fiction book, not a textbook.

I bought it for the new semester and immediately read it. Very unique, it's a combination of sci-fi and history; not like UFOs and aliens, not war stories and history textbooks either, but an excellent fiction combo. I haven't read anything quite like it and while interesting/entertaining, it's also educational.

Kindred by Octavia Butler (http://www.amazon.com/Kindred-Bluestreak-Octavia-Butler-ebook/dp/B009U9S540/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid=)

Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stay grows longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.

If anyone's interested in it, I have the e-book I'd be more than happy to share (I can convert it for you if needed, as well).

Oh there are so many books I already read, and there are some I couldnīt put down. I am very flexible and read different genres of books. But my first thought when I read the title of this thread was NALIGNI SIGN and her PSI CHANGELING serie - - - think there are nearly 10 books already translate into german, and I didnīt read them, I munched themhehe

I'm a huge fan of Stephen King so any of his books - I'm reading Dr. Sleep at the moment :). I also love Tess Gerritsen's and Jodi Picoult's books.

If you were looking for some series, I was totally amazed by Games of Thrones and Harry Potter - my long time favorites ;).
