But how im i going to deal with him when he comes home what im i sopusto be ready for. Lost of questions and no answers so does anyone have any ideas...
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is a great read. It has romance, passion, adventure, suspense, and time-travel. Very well written too.He might like Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom, Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, or The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
WHAT BOOK SERIES SHOULD I START… (I’m desperate).
I am a bookworm and have read and re-read all my books, and am in the mood for something new.
Since you didn’t tell us how old your are or what types of books you enjoy, I’m going to list books of all genres for kids, teens, and adults.Oh: Try this web site, too. This lady has the most WONDERFUL lists of books, divided by age group. You’ll surely find something you love there.Books and More for Kids and Adultshttp://booksandmore4kids.googlepages.com…Series for kids and/or teens:Madeleine L’Engle’s “Time” Quintet (although if you’re an adult and have never read these books, you really need to read them and then share them with your kids):A Wrinkle in TimeA Wind in the DoorA Swiftly Tilting PlanetAn Acceptable TimeMany WatersThere’s also Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” series. Start with the book of that title and if you love it, there are 7 more books by L.M. Montgomery that are about Anne as she grows up and her marriage and children. There is also a new book, recently released, called “Before Green Gables” (I think), that is about Anne’s parents and her childhood before the Green Gables series began.If you like mysteries, try the Trixie Belden series. There are a lot of books, but the best ones are the first 5. After the 5th book, they’re not all that great.Trixie Belden and the Secret of the MansionTrixie Belden and the Red Trailer MysteryTrixie Belden and the Gatehouse MysteryTrixie Belden and the Mysterious VisitorTrixie Belden and the Mystery off Glen RoadElizabeth Enright’s “Melendy family” quartet and “Gone-away Lake” duo can be hard to find in bookstores, but your library should have them and Amazon.com usually is able to get them.- The Saturdays- The Four-Story Mistake- And Then There were Five- Spiderweb for Two* Gone-Away Lake* Return to Gone-AwayAnd how about the “Magic” series by Edward Eager:Half MagicMagic by the LakeTime GardenKnight’s CastleMagic or Not?Well-WishersSeven-Day MagicSeries for (mainly) adults:Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER series (you have never met a sexier, hunkier, lovelier man in fiction than Jamie Fraser):- Outlander (called ‘Cross-Stitch’ in the UK)- Dragonfly in Amber- Voyager- Drums of Autumn- The Fiery Cross- A Breath of Snow & AshesAdriana Trigiani’s BIG STONE GAP series:- Big Stone Gap- Big Cherry Holler- Milk Glass Moon- Home to Big Stone GapAlso by Adriana Trigiana- Lucia, LuciaElizabeth Buchan’s WIVES duo:- Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman- Wives Behaving Badly (this is the sequel)Jasper Fforde’s THURSDAY NEXT series (be sure you read the copyright page, all the footnotes, the adverts in the back -it’s all relevant!

Some of these books are out of print and can be hard to find even in a used book store, but it’s worth finding them all. To read them by their internal chronology, the order is:* Camber of Culdi* Saint Camber* Camber the Heretic* The Harrowing of Gwynedd* King Javan’s Year* The Bastard Prince* In the King’s Service* Childe Morgan* Deryni Rising* Deryni Checkmate* High Deryni* The Bishop’s Heir* The King’s Justice* The Quest for Saint Camber* King Kelson’s BrideMarion Zimmer Bradley has written a brilliant retelling of the King Arthur legend: The Mists of Avalon. The legend is retold from the point of view of the women. She has also written quite a number of books that come before “Mists” and are centered on the mystical island of Avalon (*not* Glastonbury!) and the community of women who worship the Goddess. Whether or not you’re interested in reading the entire series, “Mists” is a book you won’t want to pass up.Although they’re not a series, Gregory McGuire’s fairy-tale retellings are brilliant:- Wicked- Mirror, Mirror- Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister- LostRichard North Patterson has written a number of books that are legal thrillers. The characters overlap – all the books are related but it isn’t truly a “series.”* The Lasko Tangent* The Outside Man* Escape The Night* Private Screening* Degree of Guilt* The Final Judgment(also published as Caroline Masters)* Eyes of a Child* Silent Witness* No Safe Place* Dark Lady* Protect and Defend* Balance of Power* Conviction* Exile* The Race

OFF TOPIC QUESTION: answer quickly before it gets deleted..
I booked a flight toThailand last month after scuba diving in Mexico because it is so cheap to get certified as a PADI Diver there.I cancelled it cos I got cold feet.however I have just found a cheap flight to Utila which is a dirt cheap dive island in the Honduras and I can get there and back for a third…
How is your question off topic? SCUBA is a water sport.Normally I would say “go for it!” but considering the unstable political situation since the military coup that just took place in Honduras, this might not be the best time for an outlander to head there. You might want to check with your state department as to whether there could be travel restrictions coming up if the crisis isn’t resolved.

I Want To Read Outlander,Is It Good.
My main concern is the sex scene,do they just mention it or go into deep description about how they do it.Please elaborate.Also ,since it’s such a long book series,is it good.
I kinda hated it. Too much sexualization of everything. Not the sex scenes, I didn’t have a problem with that, it was the fact spring meant sex, being pregnant was sex, riding a horse was sex. (Not literally, but there were so many drawn comparisons!)Too much romance. Too much… eh.I finished the book and it wasn’t that bad, but I couldn’t continue with the series.Edit: The sex scenes were pretty detailed. There was one where he’s talking about how he was going to ride her and maker her call him master. Eh. And another where it went into a lot of detail on oral sex. Like him rubbing his face… in… nevermind, this is making me feel uncomfortable. You get it.
What are some really good books.
I am 12 years old and I have a very high reading level so I love to read about love stories and am familiar with the Sara Dessen books so I was just wondering if there are any really good books out there that you guys would recommend. Thanks!!!
You sound a lot like how I was in school. I thought, “Screw children’s books!” and picked up Nora Roberts. Now I’ve collected and read 99% of her titles, and have also come to love Janet Evanovich–uproariously hilarious!–Susan Elizabeth Phillips–my favorite author–Sandra Brown–intriguing suspense and mystery. Diana Gabaldon definitely uses higher vocabulary, had me looking up several words every chapter or so. Her Outlander is my favorite book of all time. Christina Dodd’s books can get a little R-rated, I don’t recommend those for a twelve year old, but if you were interested, her Lost Texas Hearts series was quite the adventure. Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, though popular and scoffed at by realists, was still entertaining to read. (And trust me, the book was a lot better than the movie.) Harry Potter, considered nerdy, but contains, perhaps metaphorically, the fundamentals of human society–racism, discrimination, good versus evil. The Sunfire romance series are good reads; each book is about a different teenage girl in a different part of history who falls in love and endures major life changes. Those are for young adults, and I think right up your alley. The same with S.E. Hinton’s books. Barbara Cartland is the ultimate romance author, with over 700 books in print, and I absolutely adore her work. Other authors to try are Julie Garwood, Judith McNaught, Danielle Steel, Sophie Kinsella, Catherine Anderson, and Catherine Coulter. Also, the classics are called just that for a reason! There are so many more I could name, but I hope this helps.
How to group library books by category.
Ok so the library here has its books organized alphabetically by author name. It sounds like a good system until you are actually a patron looking for something to read randomly. Then it becomes a tedious task of selecting books at random and reading their backs to see what they’re about and if you like them….
I assume you’re referring to fiction, since there are many fine systems for arranging non-fiction works. Grouping by category is a very personal thing, and it depends on how many categories you want to deal with. If you go to most any book store,you can find “Literature,” “Science fiction/Fantasy,” “Romance,” etc. Many people enjoy having books arranged that way, and there are advantages. The disadvantages come in when a book overlaps genres. For example, is Twilight a romance, a fantasy or a horror novel? Would Outlander, a time travel romance set in 18th century Scotland be a fantasy, a romance or an historical novel? Where would you put Celebrity in Death, a mystery novel set in the future which also has a bit of romance? It’s nice to browse, say, the Mystery section, but if you have someone looking for a specific book, it can be a real pain. Plus, no matter where you put the book, you’ll have someone come and complain that you didn’t put it in the right place.Personally, I can see both sides, because I do like to read some genres more than others and it’s nice to have them sort of together, but on the other hand when I’ve gone to a book store for a specific title– Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen, for example– I have to wander around between fantasy, romance, contemporary fiction and regional fiction looking for it.My library has the hardbacks by author name, but the paperbacks are split up into genres. If you want to read Charlaine Harris’ Sookie books, you have to look to see if they’re in aqua (fantasy), black (horror/mystery), pink (romance) or red (supernatural). OR if you like to read Nora Roberts: some of her books are in black for mystery, some are in purple for general fiction, some are in pink for romance, and some are in aqua because they have fantasy elements.The only solution is a really good card catalog or even better, a knowledgeable librarian who can recommend. If you don’t have the latter, then search for what you like using keyword, like “fantasy” or “mystery.” You’ll end up with a lot of hits, but you’ll get some idea.
How many books do you read.
Like in a month…and what are some good books that you’re currently reading or have read.I’m on. “my life as emperor” and “the ecstatic” they’re both pretty good.
Depends on the book, depends on the time in my life, how busy I was etc.There were times when I was still school age that I literally read a book a day. That was of course things like the Babysitter’s Club, Satin Slippers, etc. When I read The Stand it took me nearly a month, but when I read the Outlander series (in which each book is nearly as long as The Stand) I cruised through each one in a matter of a few days. The Deathly Hallows took me two days, I worked on both days, double on one of them. It just depends.Also, I am a writer, so I now take time to reread my favorites slowly and deconstruct the writing that they consist of, in search of tips for myself. So I no longer feel the need to read everything in sight as quickly as I can. Plus, I’ve read most of what has been presented to me. My habit has always been to discover a book that I felt was really good, mostly by reading a lot of others that really weren’t, and then devouring everything else that author had to offer. Pretty soon I end up waiting on the author, or something else grabs my interest, or I’ll read something new by another author I’ve already read everything else by, you get the picture. The end result is that the books I really want to read I largely have already. That is why I love authors like Stephen King though. I can ignore him for a year and he’ll have put out five new books it seems when I go back to check.Enough rambling.I haven’t tried to count how many books I’ve read in years, I gave up trying to remember them all. Still I think it has to be in the thousands somewhere. I am currently 28 years old.
Are there any teen historical fiction books that have a May-December romance in it.
I’m interested in books that were written recently, but don’t have to be. It bothers me that many young adult historical fiction books deal with girls who are engaged to older men they do not want. Is there any book that is the opposite? Thank you!
Well, that’s pretty much how it was back then. The only book I can think of is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon, I believe the main character Claire was older than Jamie.
