    Harvs, yet again I am agreeing with you. I like to read young adult fiction too, but then I also get a kick out of talking about it with the grade 5/6 students as well.
    (Confession: I've hardly been on bh this week because I've been rereading the hunger games series again- and loving it, wishing others on bh loved it as much as Harry potter so I could talk about it too!)
    I love it! You could definitely start a thread like the Harry Potter one and I would join you in there

    Some good recs out there!

    I'm currently reading Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon and enjoying it so far.

    I also really enjoyed and would recommend "The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant.
    "The Clan of the Cave Bear" by Jean M Auel is also very good and well researched.

    I'm in a bit of a romance mood (hence Cross Stitch) so am looking to continue on this vein and read something amazingly written...I'll confess I did love the first Twilight book (except the parts where we had to know in detail what dinner Bella made for her and her father every night...yawn)...the romance between the two sucked me in though. Yep, guilty. Couldn't get through the rest of the series though.

    Someone told me The Bronze Horseman is a good romance - anyone read it?

    Okay so I'm going to attempt my list of books I couldn't put down. I'm a fast reader though so most books I have to read fast or it bothers me.

    Harry Potter series
    Gone girl
    Game of thrones
    Vampire Academy/Bloodlines
    John Marsden - everything I've read of his
    Jodi Piccoult - again have loved everything
    The time traveller's wife
    Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant
    The Power of One
    The Hunger Games (I read the whole series in 3 days)
    Pride and Prejudice
    The chronicles of St Marys
    That will do for now

    I love The Bronze Horseman trilogy! They're on my list of books I can't put down.

    I've been thinking of reading Cross Stitch but I've heard reviews that say there's domestic violence in them. Is that the case or is it a skewed perspective of a few?

    Nomsie - I love the Hunger Games too and am definitely team Peeta. He loves her so selflessly!

    Other books I couldn't put down are:
    The Happiest Refugee - Ahn do
    Eragon series - Christopher Paolini
    Enders Game - Orson Scott Card
    Where the Heart Is - Billie Letts

    No I wouldn't say domestic violence it is very accurate to the times of that makes sense. It's an awesome series

    I like to read a heap of YA books, easy reading not a look of brain power required 😊

    Colleen Hoover - any of her books are really good

    Beautiful disaster - Jamie McGuire

    Paullina Simons - girl in time square, tully, red leaves

    But my most favourite book series of all time is The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons. I love this trilogy and read it once a year.
