    Not pregnancy related, i do apologise!

    really in the mood to throw myself into a good book! just finished reading all the harry potters (sad i know) but oh my god i loved them! i'd actually look forward to bed time just to have a read and see how harrys getting on.

    so now im looking to start reading another, does anyone have any recommendations?

    im thinking about reading some Lee Child or Jane Austen, has anyone else read anything by these authors, if so, are they good?

    i like thrillers, love stories, anything thats worth a read really! (not twilight or anything to do with vampires, find it so boring)

    thanks ladies! :D xxx

    Patricia Cornwell is good but quite gory, I am reading the Celestra series on my kindle by Addison moore (about angels if not too close to vampires), I loved the eternal eden trilogy by Nicole Williams good love story. Amanda Hocking is good her Trylle trilogy is good. Austen is good I also like philippa gregory historical based stories about the tudors and house of york. (I have varied tastes but must admit I love twilight and harry potter the more far fetched the better.

    Game of thrones?

    I like Jeffery deaver. He wrote the bone collector if you've not heard of him. There are a few books in the Lincoln rhyme series.

    Have you read the Hunger Games trilogy? Technically aimed at teenagers, but I loved them - couldn't put them down! Also Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, or the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo if you like thriller type books x

    I know how you feel! I LOVE Harry Potter!! I'm 28 and I'm not afraid to admit it :) read them loads of times. If you are into fantasy, read The Women of The Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. That should keep you busy because there's 13 books and loads of novellas in between. Make sure you read them in order (start with Bitten) and do not be put off when the narrator swaps around (not in same books but different ones).

    Also thoroughly enjoyed The Hunger Games trilogy xx

    Sophie kinsella is very funny as is Janet evanovich both are chick lit type of thing u can read a first chapter on their websites if u want to get a feel for it. In terms of crime I love James Patterson particularly the micheal Bennett seriesand the private series and also love Patricia Cornwall and Matt Hilton for thrillers. Jenny colghan (sp?) Is fun to read as is Lucy Ann holmes for romance. Of course if u like a mix of romance and thriller try Nora Roberts such as the witness and the search both good books.

    Room - Emma Donoghue
    Bird song - Sebastian Faulkes
    Delirium - Lauren Oliver
