Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments I completed Ready Player One several books ago but sadly I can't stop thinking about that book. Looking for books that deliver as well as Ernst Cline did. The book is truly a gem, so rare to find such a treat.

Slugging my way through Follet's trilogy and still looking back, not to stay Follet isn't providing a beauty, but I can't stop thinking about Ready Player One.

Sigh....

Regine O Sounds more like a withdrawl than a hangover ;-)
I loved that book as well and can sympathize with you - it is a fantastic book.
Did you already read the Chaos Walking trilogy? I couldn't stop reading that one as well.

Thomas Johansson (dakkster) Whatever you do, stay away from Cline's Armada. Huuuuuuuge disappointment, and I really loved RPO too.

Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments Thanks Regine, I have added the Chaos Walking trilogy to my TBR. From what I read, it has the potential to fill the void left behind by RPO. Dsytopia was not a genre for me until RPO, now its like a drug.

Thomas, I will note your disappointment with Armada and avoid it for the present. The last thing I want to do is ruin an author that brought so much joy!

Natália Lopes (silkcaramel) I'm dreading the moment I'll finish Stars Above,The Lunar Chronicles collection of novellas,because then I'll be really finished with the series and I CAN'T LET GO YET. I'm also still not over This Fractured Light and the entire Starbound trilogy! I need something new and equally exciting to fill the void.

Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments Currently working through the second book in the trilogy of Chaos Walking and Regine, I can't thank you enough for the suggestion! I am totally hooked :-)

Now I am wondering where I can place these 3 books in the reading challenge?


message 7: by Regine (new)

Regine O Jennifer - I'm so happy that you're enjoying the books! I think they'd fit into the dystopian, books enjoyed by a younger person (it's considered YA), Wild Card or book by a European author categories.

Happy Reading :-)

Jennifer (jld451) | 34 comments Regine, thanks again, now I know where to list these books in the reading challenge.

Melissa I don't know if you like horror books, but A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay was amazing. I definitely had a book "hangover"after that one, I just couldn't stop thinking about it. Sucked me right in. I felt like I held my breathe through the whole book.
