For "beach reads", I usually grab a good thriller from one of the following authors: James Patterson, Tami Hoag, David Baldacci, Sandra Brown, Sue Grafton (love the main character, Kinsey Millhone), Tess Gerritsen, Robin Cook, Patricia Cornwell, et al. Any other good mass-market/paperback thrillers you've read lately and would like to recommend?
Lately, I've been wanting to read more historical fiction...any suggestions of good individual books or series would be appreciated. I spent an hour looking the other day at the library but wasn't sure what to choose without a recommendation. I did just pick up Diana Gabaldon's An Echo In the Bone, which I know will be good - love the time travel element in her stories. Her books are long and take forever to read (a good thing) so I think I'll save that one to read in the truck on the way to Texas and back (to pick up our new camper) later this month.
This week, I also bought the first two books of the Millenium trilogy by Steig Larsson: The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. Nancy and I plan to share these... we'll buy the third one in the series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, when we finish the first two.
So...book talk...bring it on! What are you reading right now? earlier this summer? What would you recommend? You can use the Comment button below to join the conversation!
p.s. I took the photo on our screened porch yesterday morning. Rob is re-reading Atlas Shrugged (God bless him for that!), Hank is reading the James Patterson novel, and The Girls from Ames was a recent read of mine.
