- Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. I have read all of the other books in the series and would love to see how this saga ends. The story of Eragon, and his dragon Saphira, has been a roller coaster of a ride. It's got a young man trying to save the world and all of its inhabitants from the evil, omniscient wizard, Galbatorix. I cannot wait to see what new adventures they encounter. Plus, dragons rule!
- Fire by James Patterson. This is a great young adult book and again, I've read all of the other books in the series. What I find most interesting is about this tale is the tight bond between Wisty and Whit Allgood, brother and sister who try to defeat an all powerful wizard, The One who is The One, in a chaotic New World Order. Those in power don't have names. I suppose this is a spoof on Voldemort, He Who Must Not Be Named. I find the Shadowlands most intriguing. But I'm not telling the story. Go read it.
- The last books of The Coffeehouse Mysteries by Cleo Coyle. I have books 1-4 and would love to read 5-7. Awesome series and keeps me sharp and guessing! Clare Cosi, the protagonist and coffee expert barista, plays detective when bodies start to drop. I like that I have correctly guessed who the killer is only once in the four books that I have read so far. Very good read.
- The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. I have been watching Sci-Fi's TV series Haven and it is based on this book. I would like to know the back story to such a wonderful show. I love the mystery behind the sleepy little town and its two gossiping old men who report all the paranormal occurrences in their newspaper. Interesting to see if the characters currently on the TV show match up with the characters in the novel.
- And because I have been on a Stephen King kick, I would like to have his short story "Mile 81." I've been in the mood for suspense and the paranormal. This book should take care of both of those cravings! Every time individuals stop at this milepost, they end up missing. Their belongings clearly indicate that something terrible has happened but we don't know what or by whom. *scary*
