Enter audio books - the perfect solution! I LOVE listening to books while I sew. To me it is the best of both worlds. (Between the two they also keep me up WAY later at night than I should be up!) I'm always looking for new authors.
I've decided to share what I've been reading this past year or so, and am hoping for lots and lots of comments with suggestions of new books and authors. Here are the books I've loved the most so far.
Together, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child write some of the best scientific thrillers ever written IMHO. I adore the character of Aloysius Pendergast especially, and there are now 12 books in the series. They each write books by themselves which I enjoyed immensely.
Just recently I've discovered the "Sigma Force" series by James Rollins. Yesterday I finished the 9th and last of the series. I'm eager to try his individual adventures next.
I'm late coming to this series, but now, like the rest of the world, I'm eagerly awaiting the next one.
The last book in Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time series has finally been published, so I listened to all the others in order before listening to this one.
I reread every book in every book in the the "Word and the Void" and "Shannara" series written by Terry Brooks because I wanted to read them in chronological order. I have all the books published so far in the new series, "The Dark Legacy of Shannara", but haven't yet read any of them. Soon!
I also reread (by listening) to the entire "Pern" series by Anne McCaffery and her son. Another series I wanted to read in chronological order. Now I'm ready to read the newest of the books.
As a young married woman with small children I loved to read historical romances and Gothic novels. I've not read any of those for many, many years. Now I love scientific thrillers, mysteries, fantasy, and current novels (when I'm not reading any of the others).
Please share your favorite books with me! I'm looking for lots of new authors to read.
