TSS/Weekly Geeks: Readers Advisory

Your assignment this week, if you choose to play along, is to ask your readers for recommendations. Choose a genre–any genre–and ask for recommendations. You can be as general or as specific as you like. Consider it as an “I’m looking for….”

The second part of the assignment is to write a list of recommendations and share them with your readers. Choose a genre–any genre–and share your list of favorites. I think of this as “If you’re looking for….”

“I’m looking for….”

I read varied genres, but somehow I can't read YA much or fantasy. Can anyone recommend some good books on the above genres? I would really appreciate that.

“If you’re looking for….”

I read a lot of Crime Fiction. So one can check my archives for that. But there are some authors I have read before I started blogging. I would like the lovers of crime fiction to check out Erly Stanley Gardner. His Perry Mason books are very very good. The courtroom scenes are superb and the lanky detective Paul Drake is very memorable. Just find hid books and start reading NOW.

The Human Bobby by Gabe Rotter isn't really crime fiction, but it's a great page turning mystery. I think you might like So Cold the River by Michael Koryta.

Have you read any of the Patrick Bowers series by Steven James. I have not read them but I heard they were good crime thrillers.

Thanks for the recommendations! If you are looking for YA books a few fantasy YA books that I have read recently (and that were pretty good!) are Pegasus by Robin McKinley and A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce.

I will definitely try to read Erly Stanley Gardner

Have you tried The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan? Or The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak? Both are YA books that I feel have broader appeal.
