message 5: by Apokripos (new)

Apokripos (apokalypse) The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett is a good and challenging book to read.. that I recommend to you...

message 6: by Robin (new)

Robin (robinsullivan) | 997 comments While I've heard good things about Follett an I'm really looking forward to reading Pillars of the Earth I'm not sure it qualifes in this category - His first novel "Eye of the Needle" came out in 1978. And he has produced dozen's of books- I think this area is really for new unknown talent.

message 7: by Dylan (new)

Dylan (dmfriend26) | 82 comments I think Sarah Pinborough qualifies here. She started writing in 2004. She has 5 books out so far. She writes horror novels for dorchestor publishing. I think her writing is amazing and she writes books of perfect length. The're not long enough to get boring and they don't end too fast. I highly recomend her books!

Linda | 887 comments Hey Heather, I agree with you on The Lace Reader. Unique topic and well done.

message 9: by Apokripos (new)

Apokripos (apokalypse) Sorry for that Robin.. Guess I need to understand more the topic next time I post comments. Mea culpa. Sometimes it's the price one has to pay when your so enthusiastic about a book you recommend to someone.

Robin (robinsullivan) | 997 comments No problem jzhunagev. I really want to read that book - I have it slated for February.

Glenn | 1 comments You might like Secret of the Sands by Rai Aren.
Good thrillers by 'new' writers include Min's Monster by Lila Pinord, Sudden Death by Michael Balkind, and Soul Identity by Dennis Batchelder.

I read it last December and really liked it. It is her first book and was published in 2007.
