    I was reading the Harry Potter thread, and it made me think that one of my favorite series is definitely over... I'm a bookworm, and I love to get suggestions for new things to read. I'm curious about what book/series you really loved!

    Besides the HP books, I love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, The Da Vinci Code, Caleb Carr's Alienist/Angel of Darkness, anything by Agatha Christie, The Thorn Birds. I adore Calvin and Hobbes as well!

    So, what's your favorite book(s)? What do you recommend? :)

    I loved ' The Bad Mothers Handbook' by Kate Long and loved 'The Lovely Bones' by Alice Sebold. I also loved 'The Thorn birds' although read it years ago now. Loved the Bridgette Jones books although the films did them no justice.

    I too shall miss the HP series, it is a favorite of mine. I'd say my absolute fave and a true classic, is "To Kill a Mockingbird". A definite recommend to anyone that has never read it. Otherwise I like to read a variety, but trashy novels can't be beat.

    My favorite was the Lemony Snickets series. I went through each book in the series (13 books) in a day ;) In my opinion they were the best books ever :)

    My fave book of all time is called "A Taste of Blackberries". It is a young adult book and I first read it when I was in sixth grade (many years ago now). It has stuck with me all these years. Besides Nicholas Sparks and Dan Brown, I prefer to read non-fiction books. Ancient cults and religions, Early Christianity, Mysticism, basically topics on Judeo-Christian things spark my interest. I know, I am a big nerd.
