I need a book suggestion!


 So I recently finished a book that just left me drained. The writing was amazing and the author really tugs at your emotions, but I need a good light hearted read. Any recommendations? What do you switch to when a certain book has made you depressed, cry, or just overpowered you?

  1. For me, Harry Potter never disappoints. If I am in a reading rut, I always turn to one of those!

  2. Thanks Tara! I am ashamed to say I haven't read Harry Potter. GASP I Know! I watched the movie first so I find it hard to go back and read the book after. I'll have to give them a try.

  4. When that happens to me, I usually turn to one of my comfort reads. A book that I love and have read many times. For me it is usually Tamora Pierce's 2nd book in the Alanna series, In the Hand of the Goddess. If turning to a comfort read right now doesn't sound good to you, you could always pick up Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa. That one was a fun read. Best wishes!

  6. Hey your header and background look amazing :)

  7. Try Candyfreak by Steve Almond. It's a nonfiction book written by a guy who is obsessed with candy -- he winds up getting tours of some of the smaller candy companies, and it's a great read, and really funny! The only problem I had with it was that I started craving things like Valomilks (you learn about them in the book). :)

  8. Jen: I have seen Amy & Roger's Epic Detour around and I love the cover.

    Jo: Candy sounds good!

    Juju:Thanks! I finally feel my header and background are my own :) took a while to get there. I haven't read Forgive my Fins.

    Fiona: I have some of the It girl series but I didn't know if you had to read the gossip girl series first.

    Mel: Oh Iron Daughter I own that just haven't gotten around to it. Great idea!

    I'll have to hit the bookstore tomorrow.

  9. I think Robin Palmer's books are cute. You can predict what's gonna happen but they're sweet and addictive.

    Try Geek Charming or Cindy Ella.

  10. Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta is fabulous. A great, funny, lighthearted read with a fantastic main character.

    I hope you find what you're looking for! :)

  11. i agree its always best after an emotional read to go for something light and perhaps funny, Vampire Academy if you haven't read it, its a great read and just one of those you can relax and enjoy!
