Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews. It’s part of the Kate Daniels series. Far darker than most urban fantasy, but still has a love interest. 🙂
One For The Money by Janet Evanovich, first in the Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie Plum is a newly minted bounty hunter who often finds herself in way over her head. I’m only a few books in because my library hasn’t had one of the books I need to continue in order.
The Sword of Shannara – by Terry Brooks.
I’ve heard good things about this series, and MTV is adapting it as a television series. So could be a good buy.
Ringworld – by Larry Niven
I do not know much about this book or story line. I think it is like Halo. /s But seriously, This is a classic in the Sci-Fi genre and a good place to start.
Red Rising – By Pierce Brown
This book is on my wish-list. I have heard good things about this series. That’s about all I know.
I Am Number Four – by Pittacus Lore
I’m a sucker for YA alien stories. While the movie was terreiable the books are decent. This isn’t some epic poem but a quick, nice story that pays homage to superheros.
Dead Until Dark – By Charlaine Harris
Do you love the raw sex, action, and drama of HBO’s True Blood Series? If you do, well, this might be the book series for you. Dead Until Dark is the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery and is the basis for True Blood.
Here, There Be Dragons – By James A. Owen
Do not let the age group of this book be a turn off. This book (and series) is very much a YA/Teen fantasy/adventure series. Very quick read. Pays homage to a lot of fantasy novels and tropes.
The 39 Clues – by Rick Riordan
As a child, if you liked Indiana Jones or National Treasures than you will like this series. As an adult, do not be ashamed if you are caught reading this series. Another quick read aimed at kids around 8 to 12, these stories explore historical figures and events but in a way to make them interesting to the kids. There is also an interactive component which adds some depth to the story.
Archmage: Legend of Drizzt – By R.A. Salvatore
while it may be the first book in the Homecoming series, it isn’t the first book in the Legend of Drizzt series. That would be Homeland: Legend of Drizzt: Dark Elf Trilogy, book 1.
