Re: Your favourite book/book series

Just to say, I started The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah on Friday. I'm about half way through and I'm really liking it. Thanks for suggesting it!

Feel free to share what your thoughts are on these books as you move along in them.

Neither Present Time by Caren J. Werlinger. Another one of my favourite authors is Daphne du Maurier. Ted and I are share-reading Jamaica Inn but our joint favourite, is The Loving Spirit.

Re: Your favourite book/book series

Presently I'm reading Gina LaManna's The Hex Files, a 7-book series. Its genre is Paranormal. Gina LaManna writes very well, and it is rare that she can write in the 1st person, then switch to 'God's Eye View'. That takes skill.

I've just finished A. C. Henley's McKee, 10th Anniversary

Clockwork Orange is one of my favourite books! It took me a long time to read because of the complicated language, but it's written in such a clever, artistic way. Huge trigger warning for anyone who sees this and wants to read it though (rape, violence), but I agree that it's a wonderful book. Thank you for your suggestions too, I'll have a bit of a research
I hope you like it! It's one of my all time favorite book. A super picky reader in my book club said I give good recommendations. I hope that's true for this book.

Series:

The Daevabad series. The first book is kingdom of Brass.
Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. It's a four book series. It is pretty intense and there is some death and murder and abuse.

Graphic novels:

Motor Crush
Gideon Falls

Stand alone:

The Nightigale by Kristin Hannah (all time fave).
Night Road, Firefly lane, winter garden, the great alone by Kristin Hannah. These are sad but worth it if you're in the mood for thst.
The Vanishing Half
The House on the Cerulean Sea
My dark Vanessa (TW rape)
The once and future witches
