I am always looking for new stuff to read so I am asking the other adults on this board what they are reading to get ideas. Please share.

Being that I'm a hairstylist, my mum gave me this to read after finishing it herself. I'm a third of the way in, and its really good. I recommend it.

The Kabul Beauty School: The Art of Friendship and Freedom by Deborah Rodriguez

This might not be everybody's cup of tea but Ender's Game is one of my favourite books, brilliant.
For a more chilled out, amusing read; And God Created the Au Pair. I would describe it as an adult Georgia Nicolson-esque book.

I think I bought Colour of Magic recently but then I moved so it could be anywhere...

I'm not an adult but I can't help not to post here. I'm a sucker of love stories so most of the books I read is something to do with it. So with that, I'm currently reading Love, Inc. :) Before I used to hate reading books that got something to do with paranormals (except if it's like Harry Potter AND fairies) but now, oh goodness. I started reading EVERYTHING that people say it's good and blah blah blah. I have currently 23 books out and 74 books requested. I know it's crazy and most of them are series. With that, I'm fully book until next year of May... haha... *blush*

Just finished re-reading Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. Read almost all her novels in the Dragonriders of Pern series (all-time favorite would have to be The Masterharper of Pern). Her son, Todd McCaffrey, is still trying to continue along the same vein, but eh, I would only really recommend the stuff she'd written herself.

Also would recommend the Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony.

Just finished up Its Kind of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. Such a fantastic read. It's eye opening and it really helps you understand about kids who go throygh depression at such a young age. If you liked the movie, read the book!

I need something new to read, especially as I am bedridden at the moment.

Lucija, I love the Dragonriders of Pern series, Caro got me into them, and recently finished reading A Gift of Dragons.

Just ordered the Hunger Games trilogy from Amazon :)

PERN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I even have the cook book, the art book, and her biography I am not a fan at all >.<

I recently finished reading for like the sixth or seveth time The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society I am addicted to WWII or post WWII books and this one happens to be done through a series of letters from different people. Its amazing and fun and the characters so endearing I have read it so much.

Currently I am reading Adventurers Wanted : Slathbog's Gold
Its like beginner D&D in writing. I personally find it EPIC and want one of the magic bags :)

For some odd reason, I like reading my grandsons books. He read the Percy Jackson books so that's what I'm reading now and I'm trying to talk him into reading Harry Potter but he's not interested yet, he's 10.
