Recommended Thrillers Books

Though as readers we try our best to keep an open mind, we have a confession. We admit it, it’s a dirty word to us: genre fiction.

Young Fiction books

Young Adult isn t really just for the 12-18 age group anymore—it s the fastest growing publication category right now. In fact, 55 percent of readers who buy YA are actually over 18.

And it s always a plus when the characters and detectives are interesting people and have story lines and arcs and actual emotions. I have an entire bookshelf of mystery novels (when I go to the thrift store, I pretty much grab everything), so I have a bunch of book series that I m afraid to start because I don t know if they will be good! …

Military Fiction series books

This is my totally biased list of the top military science fiction series of our time. These are the ones I found entertaining to read and reread. My focus is as always the characters and the wow moments. Thats why there is lots of space opera here. I have followed some of the authors here for decades others for just a few years. They are all good, the focus in there books lies on different things though. I like binary counting it seems. Counting …
