Book tastes

I am willing to read or explore almost any type of genre.. I have been really into YA horror as well as YA fantasy. I always eyeball baking cookbooks , and biography’s like Tina Fey or Dick Van Dyke but always pass them up. Books I’ve enjoyed in the past are The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series, School for Good and Evil, Say Her Name, Emergency! True Stories of America’s ER’s, Stiff, Sabriel Series and Ready Player One as well as books by Nora Roberts and Linda Lael Miller. I also love the Crazy Rich Asian Movels and Warm Bodies is one of my favorites.. I really dig classic retellings too! Like Dorthy Must Die..

Don't get this!

Classic Sci-fi novels are not really my thing. Or end of the world novels.. Dystopian is fine but reading about the actual end gives me hives.. So please no left behind!

Other notes

The only real thing that bothers me about any book is when it has movie cover art. I tend to avoid hem like the plague.

Secret Santa

jkhernca's Secret Santa is UtopianPessimist. Help UtopianPessimist pick the right book.


3njennn: You might like I am Not a Serial Killer. I think it's like a cross between YA horror and fantasy and it's a series, so if you like it, there's more to read. (Sun, 25 Nov 2018 17:43:20 -0500)

UtopianPessimist: Thanks, 3njennn! I Am Not a Serial Killer looks perfect! (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 23:33:11 -0500)

UtopianPessimist: I decided to have the first two books in Ceri Lowe's series because they seemed a perfect fit. I surely hope that she hasn't read them. I always feel so excited about buying books for a complete stranger AND so worried that they'll be books s/he likes.

But it is fun. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 23:46:42 -0500)

UtopianPessimist: Finished! I hope she likes them! Happy Holidays to ALL. Stay well for a new year and more adventures. (Sat, 01 Dec 2018 09:37:01 -0500)

Peace2: Perhaps Splintered by A G Howard may be of interest 9781419709708 - YA fantasy

Or maybe The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater 9780545424936 (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 18:56:38 -0500)

Tropical-Library: Maybe My Best Friend is Ativan by Kerry Hamm https://www.powells.com/book/-9781729343630 (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 19:01:04 -0500)

Tropical-Library: Or Paramedic to the Prince https://www.powells.com/book/-9781439245811 (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 19:06:11 -0500)

lorannen: Removed NY Post Bathroom Sudoku (9780061239731) due to budget. Replaced with Peace2's suggestion, The Raven Boys (9780545424936).

Done. (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 20:57:56 -0500)
