If you liked GoT, I highly recommend Pathrick Rothfuss’ series. First book is The Name of the Wind, second is The Wise Man’s Fear. Still waiting for the 3rd book to come out, but even so, the first 2 books are amazing.
I recently read all the published books in the Throne of Glass series, and I’m now reading Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.

I love Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen, her writing is beautiful!! I’m also into fantasy and love Brandon Sanderson, probably my favorite books of his are the Mistborn series (strong female lead, magic system). Naomi Novik is wonderful too, I LOVE Uprooted and her dragon series. I also like the book Graceling. It’s part of a series but I don’t love the other two books in the series and they’re not required to read to understand the book. One more, haha, the book The Rook is excellent too.

If you like mysteries and detective books, I definitely recommend the NYPD RED series by James Patterson. And also guilty wives by James Patterson 🙂

I just finished reading “Everything Everything” and “Before I Fall” They’re both coming out as movies soon, I like to read books that are getting turned into movies. I think so I can complain about how the movies are so different from the books.
I also love mystery/detective type books so anything by John Grisham is great.

romeantic : Riiiight? I’ve been recommending this book anytime there’s a thread about a new book suggestion. I loved it.
Currently listening to “Dawn of Wonder” by Jonathan Renshaw. It’s a coming of age story. The setting has a few fantasy elements thus far, but it’s more of an adventure. I’m liking it.
I recently listened to “The Dead Walk the Earth” by Luke Duffy and I also enjoyed it. If you can get past all of the testosterone it’s a cool post apocalyptic thriller.

My current reading list:
American Rose; A Nation Laid Bare, the Life and Times of Gypsy Rose Lee by Karen Abbott. A fantastic little read about the most famous burlesque dancer in America, yes, the one that the musical Gypsy is based on. It was so good!
Unmentionable; The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage and Manners by Therese Oneille. So good! Extremely funny, sarcastic and educational. Good Lord we are lucky to be ladies in todays society. Highly recommend.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- just like the movie. Great book but a bit redundant if you have already seen the movie.

I just got “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan. It is suppposedly similar to the “Shopaholic” series so if you’ve read and liked those, you may like this book.
I also recomend “Delux: How Luxury Lost its Luster” by Dana Thomas. It’s an interesting read about the business of luxury fashion houses and their history.
“American Wife” by Taya Kyle was a fast read and enjoyable as she was very candid about her marriage to Chris Kyle.
“Mother Can you Not?” written by the woman behind the “Crazy Jewish Mom” Instagram account. VERY fast read…but absolutely hilarious.
I like this thread! Hopefully we can keep it going 🙂
