Everyday Reading: Tell Me What to Read: Round 18

Tell Me What to Read: Round 18

I am finally finally put together enough to return to Tell Me What to Read. I am certain you have all felt its absence acutely. I even have finally finished and have reviews of the last two books pending. Hallelujah.

So, on to the main event:

1. Comment with the title of one book you think I should read (any book you want). One title only, please, lest my brain explode.
2. I'll select one comment at random and announce it on the blog by the end of the week.
3. On the off-chance that I've already read the book you select, I'll contact you and ask for a follow-up suggestion (make sure there is a way to contact you either by blog or email).
4. I'll get a copy of the book and read it by the end of March.
5. I'll write a review of it here. Even if I hate the book, I will not hate you.

I'm all excited to see what you lovely readers suggest! It's been too long.

  13. Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. Terrific historical fiction with a little time-travel thrown in there for fun. I always think with a Scottish accent after I finish reading these books.

  15. My bishops wife just finished a trilogy and the first one just came out... It is called Behind the Mist by M.J Evans. I haven't read it yet. So don't hate me if you don't like it!!

  18. I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells

  19. Ok, you've probably read it, but Peace Love and Baby Ducks by Lauren Myracle. I listened to the audiobook last month and it kept me going through a week's worth of chores.

  20. "The Hourglass Door" It's good stuff.

  21. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

    Yes, it's about vampires... I know, I know... but it really is it's own different kind of vampire story.

    It was a fluff read - I saw it in my Costco magazine and checked it out from the library for fun. And I loved it.

    My previous recommendations stand too. :)

  25. Bart, The Mistborn books are sweeping through my 7th grade room this year like wildfire!! But I suggest Pat Conroy's new nonfiction, My Reading Life. It's writing at its best. Truly.

  26. Pretty sure I should suggest a book every once and a while since I regularly use these lists like they were suggestions made to me. I liked Mistborn, but if you're going to read a Brandon Sanderson book, I'd recommend Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians for obvious reasons.

  27. Another Jeanette Walls - The Glass Castle. I wish I was able to read more than just text lately... This was the last book I read for leisure and it was two months ago :(

  28. Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear

  29. The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
