Book recommendations


I am going on a business trip in the next few weeks and with several hours in airports before me I'm hoping for some good book recommendations (fiction) that I should pick up and take with me.

What have you ready lately that was incredible, a must read?

9 little remarks:

"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins is at the top of the list, if you haven't read it yet. Stephenie Meyer recommends "The Girl Who Could Fly." I haven't read much else lately that's fiction, but I've also heard the "Fablehaven" series by Brandon Mull is excellent!

I just finished reading a couple books that I really liked. They are called Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Griffin. They are fun, easy, chick lit reads, but I thought they were actually really good and great for travel reading.

Where Angels Fear to Tread (E.M. Forster) or The Portrait of a Lady (Henry James). They're both fantastic.

The Time Traveler's Wife- by Audrey Niffenegger. It is amazing.

I also liked The Hunger Games (I read that a few weeks ago). I am reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and I LOVE it. It is historical fiction about the after effects of the German occupation in WWII. I do like Fablehaven as well. I you like fantasy try ANYTHING by Brandon Sanderson. My favorite book that I've read in the last year is The Thirteenth Tale - that is a MUST read.

One of my all-time favorites (assuming you like fantasy) is A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. LeGuin. It also has the travel-based advantage of being a trilogy and fairly lightweight.

These is My Words. If you haven't read it, you REALLY should.

With the movie coming out soon, I just read Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. (Prequel to The Da Vinci Code) It's a pretty intense read that won't let you put it down. Perfect read for someone who has a few hours to kill at an airport.

I'm reading 'Three Weeks With My Brother" - Nicholas Sparks, very different from his other novels, and highly entertaining!
