Let's go, start a new adventure! Hopefully I like it!

DaniRa I loved that series but it is intense! I had to take a break in between each book lol. Enjoy 😊 3y
tpixie Yes. I liked it also. But very dark! Not happy, but good! 3y
Reviewsbylola I found the first book a little slower to get into. So maybe keep that in mind. This is one of the best series I have ever read though. 3y

There are a lot of great books, and every book is special in its own way. Wich book/books will you never forget?? I'm just curious! 😊

Noonnie Give me some comments, I'm looking for a long long long tbr list! 😬😄 3y
Frecks-Booklover4life Pillars of the earth. It's my favorite! Game of thrones, Modoc the greatest elephant that ever lived, The Book Thief, Prayer for Owen Meany, these are all books that have we stayed with me! 3y
Kalalalatja I was really hungover, when I read "A Little Life", "Deathless", "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Arcadia" 3y

Kalalalatja And I didn't get to finish my last comment! ? and also "The Crimson Petal and the White". That's my list of book hangovers ? 3y
Noonnie @Frecks-Booklover4life @Kalalalatja thank you!! Some of them are definately going to be on my tbr list! 3y
GinaAnderson The Lymond Chronicles. Just ask my friends how ridiculous I was/am about these books. It took me a long time to stop reading them and then I listened to them and then I read them again. 3y
acorter I've never had a word for this. That is perfect! For me, one such book is Aquarium by David Vann. When I finished it, I handed it to my wife (one of those rare moments when we both finished a book the same morning) and then took over with the kids because she read it non-stop until she was finished. We still talk about that book almost weekly. 3y

The Rosie Project | Graeme Stinson
Pickpick

What a delight to read this book, it's so funny, nerdy and very sweet! It's about a man with autism, he wants a wife, but his socialskills are not so good. Then he meets Rosie, she's everything he doesn't want in a wife. But why does he have that weird feeling when she's around?

Joanne1 I felt the same way about this novel. The sequel IMO was very disappointing. 3y
Tanner I agree, so much so that I lent my copy of the sequel out to someone over a year ago, and I'm not freaking out that it hasn't been returned to me. 3y
Suzze Loved it! I'll agree the sequel was meh. 3y

Noonnie @LitHousewife @Stephanie-Anne thank you! Well here in the Netherlands we got English lessons at school by our tenth... It's basic, but it helps a lot. I watch series and films in English, so reading a book was the next step actually. But still verry happy that I did it and understood it!! 😜 3y

This is the only book I have that's in English. I've never read a English book and I find it hard to start.. (I'm Dutch). I would like to read in English because I think it's way better than when it's translated. Does any of you have any other suggestions for good English books for starters???

scripturient That's great! Keep reading, it will get better. :) I also prefer reading books in the original. I actually ordered 'Hex' in Dutch now as I didn't like how they changed the setting etc for the English version. Hope it will improve my Dutch language skills. :) 3y
Noonnie That's great @scripturient I really enjoyed reading the diary of Anne Frank in Dutch, because that's original! The writing isn't really hard either! 3y
Maike Hang in there! This was also one of my first books in English (German here) and I found it hard as well. Now I read English most of the time, to avoid bad translations and to work on my language skills. It really pays off! 😉 3y

Sarahr875 I don't have a recommendation, but I just wanted to say that I think you are amazing! I read in one language and one language only. 3y
Megabooks Kudos to you!!! I always recommend Rainbow Rowell. My fav of her YA is 3y
KennethTolesJr I think "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" is a good one for starters. It's simplistic in its English, but it's a really good book. Just beware of Hagrid...he doesn't necessarily speak for everyone lol. And Kudos to you for reading in more than one language! 3y
acc5446 I think it's so amazing to know a second language fluently enough to read a book in that language. I hope you find something very engaging! 3y

RadicalReader @Noonnie so challenging to keep up with the awesome books Harlan Coben writes but definitely good to space them out so you will have time to read them while they're being printed before more are released 3y

Fifty Shades Freed | E. L. James

Reading this book right now, very quickly, just because it's a part if a trilogy, and afortunately not because I like it....

Bookish2 I read the other 2 because they were part of the trilogy, I was bored. 4y
Tdumatrait I had to edit my books before I could read them. The writing was terrible. I would read parts to my husband and we would laugh at the book. He thought Mr. Grey was a supernatural creature. He states this book helped launch 1,000 divorces due to unrealistic expectations. 4y
