the reading rainbow

I used to like reading until about fourth grade. That's when books started getting more intricate with more characters and multiple plotlines etc. I'm pretty sure I have ADD and/or a terrible capacity for that kind of thing. What books might I enjoy now? (I'm 21/F) [more inside]

Exciting unpredictable thrillers with intelligent characters?

I just finished Gone Girl the other day and am looking for similar reads. Without spoiling anything this book features intelligent and unpredictable characters with twisty plotting, including a significant script flip halfway through. Would love similar page turners that keep you guessing without being too formulaic or lowest common denominator!

Need good ideas for a Group Reading

Looking for ideas of Books that would be relatively fast reads and entertaining for group readings. I got the opportunity to participate in a reading of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas this past weekend in Aspen in celebration of the Good Doctor's 75th. It was a blast and would love to recreate that without doing the same book, but that book is perfect. A friend recommended my favorite book Confederacy of Dunces, but I think that book works because of the Character of Ignatius which may be hard to pull off in an aloud reading. But anyways, any ideas?

A week's worth of reading in one suitcase

Help me optimize my vacation reading! I’m headed out to the Outer Banks next month, and there’s nothing on the agenda but reading and relaxing.

Help me get over anxiety about reading descriptive writing

Does anyone have trouble with/feel intimidated by physical descriptions of unfamiliar landscapes (natural/urban/etc.), settings, costumes, etc. in books? I get bogged down by being unable to get a clear picture of what's going on that it's kept me from reading George R. R. Martin, Tolkien, Dickens (and come to think about it, a lot of books, like the beginning of For Whom The Bell Tolls most recently). Did you get over it? Any suggestions?

Akashic Books Noir Series. Which are your favorites?

Akashic Books Noir Series. Which are your favorites? Each book is an anthology of original short stories. It looks like they've published over fifty volumes. I find they differ greatly in style and overall quality of writing. It makes sense... each anthology has its own editor.
