There are some good non fiction books out at the moment, how about a rest from fiction? Or, with Christmas around the corner, I noticed my Waterstones had some good short story compilations, various authors.
I need something new to read! I go into book shops and i'm baffled! I am quite a vicarious enthusiastic reader albeit somewhat fussy. I like a good yarn with characters i can emotionally relate to, for this reason i find a lot of male authors and third person stories hard to get into...they don't get into the skin of the character. I have quite eclectic taste, i like phillipa gregory, margaret atwood, sarah walters, orwell. I like various fantasy (neil gaiman springs to mind) but although i enjoy it in theory and write my own i find most science fiction too remote, no matter how vast the universe i want to know how the people FEEL. I really enjoyed the game of thrones series which surprised me as medieval fantasy ain't normally my bag. With my waffling post in mind can anyone recommend a good series or books i can sink my teeth into and get lost in?
