I often ask for recommendations and have received quite a few. I have read some and I have quite a few on my list that still need to be read.
Here's the top ten:
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: This one is HUGE but has been recommended to be a couple times. I have full intentions of reading it someday.
How to Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie: I have promised my husband I would read this for years, but haven't yet. As a worry wart, he'd prefer I find an alternative to worrying.
Portrait of a Killer by Patricia Cornwell: I love reading about serial killers and supposedly Cornwell makes a pretty good case at who Jack the Ripper really was in real life.
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace: Another huge book that has been recommended that I haven't tackled yet.
The Princess Bride by William Goldman: I can't tell you how many times this book has been recommended to me. I will read it eventually.
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver: This has been recommended a few times as well, but due to the heavy theme of the book, I haven't tackled it yet.
The Hound of Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: I have yet to read any of his books and supposedly this is a great one to start with.
The Pretenders by Lisi Harrison: My 14-year-old niece has been begging me to read this, but I am not much for YA books, and this is pretty young.
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan: The Heroes of Olympus series has been highly recommended to me and I have read all the book, except this one....because it hasn't been released yet! Ha ha ha!
Mr. Kiss and Tell by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham: This is the second in the Veronica Mars series and has already been recommended to me, but I haven't read it yet, because it too has yet to be released.
