The Cairo trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz. I will keep telling every single person to read these. All the time. 

 

What is the What – Dave Eggers

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genuis – Dave Eggers

 

Oryx and Crake/The Year of the Flood/MaddAddam – Margaret Atwood

 

The Cairo Trilogy is probably one of the most moving and informative series I’ve read. Ever. What is the What is both heart wrenching and hilarious. AHWoSG is hilarious and makes me feel way more crazy/more sane at the same time. The MaddAddam trilogy is kind of twisted, but really neat. Dystopia setting.

“A Thousand Splended Suns” by Khaled Hosseini is amazing. I’ve read it a couple times!

@nolagirl0909:  I really recommend reading the Odd Thomas series! There are six main books. There’s going to be one morebut the release date hasn’t been announced yet. I’m really hoping it’s soon though because I’ve been hooked since the first one came out in 2003 or so, lol. It’s my second favorite book series, after Harry Potter and just before His Dark Materials. 🙂

The books by Charlaine Harris (the true blood series) or the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich!!!! (One for the money, two for the dough, etc) they are murder mystery books that are seriously laugh out loud funny. She’s an amateur bounty hunter that has to find the bad guys and oh my gosh, they are hilarious. The mystery is usually pretty good too! I’ve also heard Eragon is good.

Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris is so funny. It’s a great intellectual/funny read, one of the few books that I literally laughed out loud readinng.

If you like Harry Potter, have you already read Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit? What about the Game of Thrones series? They are really good!

If you like historial fiction, check out any of the books in the Tudor Series by Phillipa Gregory. The first one is called “The Constant Princess.” They’re my guilty pleasure!!

@sweetgirl1234:  + 1 I loved that book. 

My other favorites are all of Wally Lamb’s books. He’s kind of raw/vulgar (in a good way, I can’t come up with a better word?)  his writing really sticks with me.

I just finished “The Lullaby of Polish Girls” by Dagmara Dominczyk, which was really good.

Before that, I read Stephen King’s, 11/22/63, which isn’t really about the Kennedy assigination, more about time travel and relationships, and it was AMAZING!
