I don’t read much. I like to, but it literally puts me to sleep so I can only get through a page or two at time anymore.
if you like fantasy, I always suggest Dark Heart by Margaret Weis and David Baldwin. It’s a fantasy story set in contemporary times wrapped in a cop drama. It was supposed to be more than one book and the epilogue really set up the next book and it never materialized.
I went on a stint of reading books that were made into films. It helped me to choose something to read
John Dies At The End was such a blast to read. I didn’t know what to expect of it. I haven’t seen the movie and I’m on the fence about it since I enjoyed the book so much.
Fight Club is well worth a read. Pretty close to the film, in some ways, I like the move better.
The Princess Bride, if you liked the movie, the book offers a crazy amount of insight into the story. I actually made it through this one pretty quick.
My wife is a huge reader. Depending on how adventurous you feel she loves this book House Of Leaves. Two caveats. 1) it doesn’t read like a traditional book and 2) because of 1 you need to get a physical copy. I’m not sure there is an e-reader option, but from the way she describes it, it wouldn’t work in that format.
Still nostalgic over the dungeons and dragons books. I believe Margaret Weis wrote a lot of those.
