    Default Recommend me a good book :)

    Help me find a good book! I need a new book to read. Im alittle fussy I think so its hard for me to just go to the shops pick up a random book and like it. They really have to grab me in the first page otherwise I put it down. A good book for me is one that I start and dont put down for 3 days until ive read it all.
    Having said that I read all genres lol. Mathew Reilly, the Shopaholic series, Angleas Ashes, Mao's last dancer, some Jody Picoult.

    Have you read a book you really enjoyed?

    Do you have an iPhone?

    I downloaded iBooks and found a free book on there (book 1 in a 3 book series, next 2 are paid) called 'Her Majesty, the King'. It's a fictional fill in of Hatshepsuts life and runs alongside what we do know of her. The author is WA based and I was hooked!

    My other favourite books:
    A Thousand Splendid Suns
    The Red Tent

    I reckon one of the must-read books for Australians is Cloudstreet by Tim Winton. I normally read sci-fi fantasy, though. If that's at all your scene try George RR Martin's Game of Thrones series. Or for an interesting look at multiple generations of a Chinese family, can't go past Wild Swans.

    My Story by Dave Peltzer

    It is a tear jerker though. Especially for mum's and people who have had traumatic childhood's.

    But I am a mum, very emotional (always have been) and had a very traumatic childhood, and I couldn't put it down.


    WooHoo! Another iphone!

    Sophie Kinsella has brought out a new book: 'I've got your Number' though I haven't read it, so can't say whether it's good or not.

    If you're into non fiction/biographical type books '3096 Days' written by Natascha Kampusch was a compelling read.

    I am also enjoying reading Powderfingers 'Footprints: The story of Australia's best loved Band'.
