Your BEST Book Recommendations?

I've been organizing my bookshelves, as I said every writer should, in my last post. It's been a somewhat exhaustive and eye-opening experience. I am so utterly disappointed at my selection. So, I've decided I need to swell my collection. I want, nay I NEED, suggestions on what should absolutely be on my shelf. I am accepting every genre, with the exception of horror. Sorry, folks, I've still not quite fallen for that one just yet. Maybe, in another 10 years or so my PTSD won't be a factor in which books I choose to read. Okay, so maybe some horror, just no human torture horror. I can do zombies and ghosts and that kind of horror, but nothing that involves torture. For example, I read Charlie Higson's The Enemy, and I did just fine. I started Stephen King's It and had nightmares for weeks. Hope that helps, and for those of you that read horror, I'm thinking it will.

Much love, and comment away! Please, also tell me what genre the book falls into, that way I know where to look in my local and used book stores! And how about we splash the pot a bit, if I get 20 different people to comment (yes, I need that many book recommendations), I'll do a raffle for a $25 Amazon Gift Card. (To which, you will have 3 days to give me your info so I can get your gift card to you! If not, I'll redraw...)


  1. The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz (erotica/erotic romance--opinions vary, but BDSM for sure)
    The Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong (urban fantasy with strong romantic elements)

  2. Well, you've probably read it, but I'm still in love with The Hunger Games series — at least the first two books. YA by Suzanne Collins.
    Bossypants by Tina Fey is a favorite of mine. Non-fiction/humor
    Extreme Love by Abby Niles is a good romance set amongst the world of Mixed Martial Arts. It's a great read. :)
