Ann (annrumsey) | 14411 comments This is always a good list to consider when (at the least) deciding whether to spend time on a book or $$. They would lead one to the library at the least for a free test drive. One on this list I hadn't noted before now is The Martian by Andy Weir. It is getting rave reviews on the Audiobooks GR group, I may check it out eventually and see if I agree. It is listed as "different". Perhaps the audio is a better presentation.
Also I loved the two Robert Galbraith books; as they say, your mileage may vary.

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 7900 comments Yes, I was interested to see the Galbraith books on here as well, as I liked them well enough. Different strokes for different folks, as Sly Stone said.

Also noted Giles Blunt on here. His Forty Words for Sorrow is a book that still haunts me, but I have not read more of his, perhaps because that book was so potent.

Melodie (melodieco) | 3604 comments I really hated that PRINCE LESTAT was so bad! I couldn't finish it. Should have listened to Merrilee! On another note, Anne Rice has a Sleeping Beauty book coming out in the spring. Got my fingers crossed on that one. The original Beauty trilogy was some really good erotica! At least, I thought so.....especially compared to FSOG!

LOL! I think Ann turned me on to the Beauty trilogy, and I keep that buried DEEP in my underwear drawer!

Well, maybe TMI there... {snicker}

I still haven't read FSOG, but the previews of the movie are now in the theaters and it looks really cheesy.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14411 comments Hmm, that sounds plausible Carol! I had forgotten (the recommendation, .. not the books. Quite memorable!)
