need your recommendations.

Monday, March 7, 2011

I constantly ask for book recommendations from book bloggers and I always end up finding good books through you, and so that's why I'm asking again.

This time, I am asking for titles that are either in the General/Contemporary/Literary Fiction genre or in the Mystery/Thriller genre. I have rediscovered the love for YA in 2010, but I know have also missed many good books from the two genres I am asking for. So if you know of any that you really enjoyed, please let me know.

Some of my favorites: The Thirteenth Tale, The Forgotten Garden, Water for Elephants, A Walk to Remember, etc.

Thanks so much!


  1. O Life from Scratch by Melissa Ford is so good :)

  2. Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok, The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen, Juliet by Anne Fortier

  3. You should read one of my favourite books EVER; Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner!!!! So good.

  4. Could you possibly do a review on Beastly?

  5. Awakening by SJ Bolton is a great mystery/thriller type.

  6. Juju - tried looking for that one but our library didn't have it. I did put it on hold though so maybe next library trip :) Thank you!

    Christina T - I tried looking for all these suggestions but they only had The Opposite of Me, which I did borrow. Thank you for the rec!

    Nina - I borrowed it today! :) Thank you.

    Taylormarie - The book or the movie? I don't think I have any plans of watching the movie but I did put the book on hold at our library today :) So maybe soon!

    Wendy - I went to the library today but they didn't have it. I did put it on hold though so maybe next time! Thank you though. It does sound like something I would like.

  7. Undone by Karin Slaughter is a great thriller. Happy reading no matter what you chose ;)
