I love to read fiction books. Fiction books allow me to escape my "real" world and transport myself to places I've never been. They allow me to experience things I've never experienced. They fill me with excitement and take me on fun adventures. I laugh, I smile, I cry... My spirits are lifted... I am inspired in many ways. Sometimes I even learn things I never knew.

I always take something away with me from the books I read, even if it's something small. And that's a great thing. Books can truly change lives, inspire, educate, and even stimulate the mind...

If you are not sure about what fiction books to read or want to read something you've not read before check out these book recommendations on interesting books to read in fiction. These are the books I have read that I found quite enjoyable and memorable too. The list includes books for young adults and books for adults too. I hope you will love and enjoy at least some of these books that I mention in my recommendations... Happy reading!

      It's amazing. Ever since I have taken early retirement, I seem to have less time on my hands. Well, actually, I just find different things to do and by the time I am ready to enjoy my latest "read," I fall asleep pretty quickly. Thanks for all the information, Lena.

      Thank you for your comment Kathryn.

      Nicholas Sparks did write "The Notebook". I haven't read it though. Actually, "Safe Haven" was the only book of his that I read. But I did see all the movies, which were great so I am sure that all of his books are great as well. I am thinking of reading them, actually.

      It looks like a pretty good list. I haven't read any of them, unfortunately, but some of them sound familiar. And I believe Nicholas Sparks was the writer of "The Notebook", which is a very bittersweet story.

      Thank you for sharing your list. I will make note, and check out some of these at some point.

      One of my favorite writers is G.K. Chesterton, and his fiction novel,

      THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, is a fascinating read, a detective/

      adventure story with spiritual implications.

      Thank you for this. I used to be a reading nut. I have completed Britannica's greatest book list. My book reading was curbed/reduced in 1991.

      You have a lot of good selections here and I have to admit I am totally absorbed in reading mysteries. I have a list of at least 100 authors who I absolutely love. Unfortunately I have gone through most and need some new ones. So I may venture out. Thanks for sharing. Voted up.
