I've just finished Kristin Cashores "Fire," and now I'm unsure what to read next.
Below are a list of books/authors that I love.
Philip Pullman (anything by this man is amazing.)
Trudi Canavan (Read everything she has to offer. Loved every book.)
J.K.Rowling (Do I need to say more?)
Kristin Cashore (Read Graceling and Fire and loved them both!)
Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games were great, not too sure if I should read her first series.)
Niel Gaiman (I've read a few of his books, but only liked Coraline, Stardust and the Graveyard Book, the others I've read were definitely overrated.)
Philip Reeve (Loved Mortal Engines.)
Jeanne DePrau (City of Ember series is my guilty pleasure!)
So really, I like female leads usually, or strong female characters, I like fantasy or non-hardcore sci-fi (steampunk usually) and I don't like massive books (I like to finish a book in 1-3 days) and I don't like nothing overly dark or gritty.
When I read I want it to be fun, entertaining and definitely not depressing (this could be from sheer length to dark themes.)
If anyone can recommend me some books, similar maybe to those above, or books you have liked while also liking some of the above, then please let me know!
I feel a little lost when I'm not reading! :P
