    What book should I read next?

    I prefer reading the fantasy genre in my free time, but am open to anything if you can make a reasonable argument to why I should pick up a particular book.

    The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - a zombie type novel but the writer is absolutely talented.  It is actually a young adult book I reviewed for Amazon.  I love to read any genre if the writer is talented.

    For real life adventure, Kon Tiki - an oldie ocean adventure. Love it.  There is something about adventure that is real that keeps me reading.

    For fun and mystery, Patrick McManus's Bo Tully series, The Blight Way is book one.  Funny, the characters are very endearing.

    For fantasy:  The Way of Shadows, by Brent Weeks.  This is book one of the Night Angel Trilogy.  Bought it for my son-in-law in 2009 and he couldn't wait to get the other two, he really enjoyed them.

    I am not much into fiction and read more of reality based books. I have read a few biographies.

    Most recently I have read You Can Heal Your Life..

    And I would recommend you read it as well, if you read it with an open mind I am sure will have something positive to take out of it.

    I have a better outlook towards life and I am able to overcome my fears and I am onto making a better life for myself.

    I took a trip while reading this book and this trip became a part of this book and part of the turning point of my life.

    I am much more open to accepting change, respect myself better, identify myself for the uniqueness I posses.

    I have attached a picture from my trip of the table where I spent most of my time reading this book, watching the waves and exploring my own thoughts.

    I think you should read anything by Pat Conroy because he is my favorite author, and he so engrosses you in the plot you can't put the book down. Also some of his plots, while realistic are so unbelievable you might think they were fantasy.

    If you like really imaginative books, I would suggest The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, which is very fanciful and has such rich characters. The plot is a little fantasy and its a mystery which is exciting. I would also suggest Rhett Butler's People because the author imagines the back story of one of the most famous characters of all times. It is real, engrossing and messes perfectly with the original text, Gone with the Wind, if you love the fantasy of older times, you'll like that reader too.

    Good reading!
