I've been reading a fair bit recently, got the Kindle app on my phone, yay. I don't sleep well and I read in the night.

Just finished Along Came a Spider, James Patterson, read a couple of Dean Koontz. The Room by Emma someone, that was good. And just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Really fancy a good paranormal/horror/sci fi type read tho, anyone got any suggestions?

SciFi - Iain Banks (Does Sci Fi under Iain Banks and fiction under Ian Banks - both excellent), Alastair Reynolds, Robert Reed, Isaac Asimov or some classic Cyberpunk - William Gibson.

Horror - Clive Barker, HP Lovecraft (should be some free downloads), Shaun Hutson, James Herbert all good.

My current read is Paul Oakenfold biography

Im reading Jeffery Archer Prison Diaries 1

Michael Chabon, The Final Solution

I've just finished the twilight saga as it was forced upon me my my neighbour.. I actually really enjoyed Reading them- very good books. All the better as I was convinced they'd ne a load of time wasting tosh but couldn't put em down! Yes... I know they're mega old reads now bur better late than never!


Hoping to get onto the the crimson petal and the White next,... Read some recommendations. No idea what it's about though

Jimimyn, thanks for those, will probably check out Iain Banks. :-)

Sam, I read the Twilight Saga and really enjoyed them too, wasn't expecting to.

not really a novel or anything, but about a month ago i was offered a part time PhD, my supervisor suggested i read "how to get a PhD". He said it will help me.........

Just started reading "Crime" by Irvine Welsh, pretty good so far.

Before that I was reading "The Redbreast" by Jo Nesbo - I think it's one of a series of books based on a Norwegian detective (it was translated into English, a bit like the Millenium books).

You should try reading Ian Rankine books, i.e. Inspector Rebus, they're pretty good...

Reading Long Way Down John O'Groats to Capetown by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman

Love Peter F Hamilton.

I read the Commonwealth saga a few months back and the Nights Dawn trilogy a few weeks ago. I have the Void trilogy on the way but at the moment i'm starting The Crippled God by Steven Erickson (last of ten books and a bit more sword and sorcery).

Anyone recommend authors who are comparable to Peter F Hamilton? Space based advanced technology with recognisable human protagonists, kind of what if current society developed long distance space travel.

Not quite spot on your wish list but as I said to ChipSticks Iain Banks and Alastair Reynolds do sci fi like no one else, big space opera stuff.

Check out reviews on Amazon, some good descriptions (but watch for spoilers).

Ive recently gone back to using readitswapit site so im getting all sorts of random books through to read. Got a Dean Kootnz one through today as i enjoy most of his.

i'm reading my 3ds quick setup guide atm

I read the first 2 Alex cross novels last week (along came a spider and kiss the girls). Got the rest on my kindle to work through. Think they're sending my brain funny though so might read Michael mcintyre's autobiography next

Sancho, great books, try the Womens Murder Club one's as well.

Michael McIntyre is fantastic...don't read it in public as you'll laugh out loud a lot. PM me when you've read the bit about masturbation and don't have a drink at the time or it'll come out your nose.
