I need to compile my summer reading list ASAP. Please give me some suggestions.
Two years ago I asked
for some book suggestions and MeFis, as always, turned out to be great at just that. This time I'm looking for books to keep me entertained all during the summer, as I'll have a lot of free time (I'm a teacher and master's student).
I like fiction novels, long-ish, and prefer if they're recent books (as in, "not in the mood for oldish classics").
Books I've read and liked (some of them because I learned of them in here in the Green):
I Know This Much Is True
The Time Traveller's Wife
The Kite Runner
Life of Pi
Pillars of the Earth (and) World without End
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Books I read and didn't like very much:
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay
The Loser's Club
(I think amazon suggested that one, and it sucked)
I figure whoever's read any of these recognizes them without needing the author.
I know there's already tons of questions about books here, but in this community with lots of types of readers, I'm hoping you can help a lot better than Amazon's "people who bought this
, also bought this
