I love to read and read anything! Here lately it seems like I can't find a good book to read. I have search the library and internet, and can't find anything great. This month I have read a few biographies, two Stephen King books, a couple of romance books and now I am reading an Amish book. They were all ok reads, but I need a good book! One that I can't put down! Help! Can you suggest anything?

How about legal thrillers from John Grisham? Horror from Dean Koontz?

I like John Grisham and when I was in highschool I was so fond of Dean Koontz but now I'm older I find some of this works cheesey.

Or John Connolly he is an Irish writer and his books are intriguing, mysterious and he is a great story teller. I love his books. I haven't completed all of it cause they're hard to find.

I have read The Kite Runner, but not the others. The Kite Runner was amazing!

Most of my favorite books are about North Korean defectors. You can try the award-winning Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick. The author had interviewed over a hundred defectors, but the book focuses on a few characters. It's really good. Other books that I love are Dear Leader by Jang Jin Sung and The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee.
