Richard Knaak - The world of warcraft books....especially the war of the ancients
Rick Riordan - percy jackson novels....there are 5 of them and they are fun, easy to get into stories about greek mythology...sorta like a deity based harry potter
Stephanie Meyer - i love the twilight series. It is sorta teen romance involving vampires but it is still good
Brian Lumley - the necroscope series.....it is awesome. Start with necroscope and there are likee 12 books. It is another vampire series but different than any you have ever read.
Robert Jordan - the wheel of time series. It is fantasy on par with tolkien It has 13 books currently i believe.
logan, all those series are complete now=-) You can read the first one and order away.
I tend to like the forgotten realms books from ed greenwood, dragonlance from margaret weiss. I like anything fantasy, not much help outside that realm=-) unless you want good programming book reccommendations.
another 2 good books (both were made into movies but if you havent seen the movie...READ THE BOOK FIRST!!! MUCH BETTER)
The Blindside - i read this book about 4 years ago, a looong time before the movie. great book...first half is the history of the left tackle in the NFL and how Lawrence Taylor created a neeeed for athletic big men and the 2nd half is about Michael Oher.
I've been reading Choke by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club author. It's about some sex addict dude that goes to sex addicts anonymous to, yep, have sex with women. It's good, books about fucked up shit usually are.
I was recommended The Void Trilogy by Peter Hamilton and what I've read so far it's good hard sci-fi, if you're into that.
The Art of Racing in the Rain. (Fiction) I think this is one that anyone would love. It's the story of a young race car driver and his family drama...but told completely from the point of view of the family dog! Funny and charming and a quick read. Perfect for summer.
