thanks y'all

I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who has given me reading recommendations. I've gotten suggestions here, on Facebook, from Goodreads, and via twitter. Y'all really know how to hook a girl up!

I just finished "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" series, and I'm really looking forward to checking out all your favorite books. It's going to take a while to get to everything, but I'm so grateful for your guidance as I dip my toes back into the sea of literature.

This is most of what has been reccemended to me so far, and if you have something to add to the list let me know. I'm looking for a little bit of everything, the only requirement is a good story!
 The Game of Thrones series
  1. Cornelia Funke's Inkspell trilogy
  2. Anything by Maeve Binchy, especially "Circle of Friends," "Quentins," "Scarlet Feather," "Evening Class," "Heart and Soul," "Tara Road"
  3. The Bronze Horseman Trilogy
  4. Anything by Ron Rash (Clemson Author), especially  "Serena" or "The World Made Straight"
  5. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
  6. Frank, Dorothea Benton, especially the Lowcountry Tales Series
  7. And here is a link to my "To Read" shelf on Goodreads.  These are books Goodreads has recommended, and books that caught my eye when I looked over my friend's shelves!

  1. If you liked the private games book you should check out the others :) How was girl with the dragon tattoo?

    1. "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" series was good. The first book especially keeps you guessing, and it drew me in. It's a little slow to start, but once it gets going it doesn't stop. It's fairly violent, but how the characters handle the violence is what makes the books really interesting.


Sooooo, the spammers have finally discovered my blog. I'm not sure if that means I've 'made it', but it does mean that I have turned on comment moderation for my older posts. Don't worry though, I get the notifications quickly, and promise to read and publish anything that doesn't include random comments or suspicious links.
