What is a good book that is a real page turner?

I need something new to read, but get bored easily if it starts slow.

Have you read Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment? It is my favorite book ever! The very first sentences are, "The funny thing about imminent death is that it really snaps everything into perspective. Take right now for instance,"

definitly the Homelanders series by Andrew Klavan, that one will keep you up reading, Vladimir Tod, by Heather Brewer is great, Rick Riordan's Books are all good, and the Hush Hush Saga, by Becca Fitzpatrick, as well as the Legacy of Tril by Heather Brewer, are great as well

A great book that gets your attention right away is The Hot Zone it is a best-selling 1994 non-fiction bio-thriller by Richard Preston about the origins and incidents involving viral hemorrhagic fevers, particularly ebolaviruses and marburgviruses. This book will scare the crap out of you, and you won't be able to put it down.

Personally, I read Uncle John's Bathroom Reader series because nearly every page is about a whole new thing. How to do palm readings. The world's (un)luckiest man. Women in space. The lost cloud city of Peru. Wise words from the wise. How a wormhole works. The story of the Cold War physics. What happened to once famous people. The weird life and death of Bruce Lee. celebrity phobias, lawsuits, or famous last words. The history of the magic 8-ball, chia pets, Woodstock, coffee, pets, underwear, vampires and other monsters. the origin of phrases, Oscar The Grouch, Bug's Bunny and other icons, The CIA & LSD. Bat-Bombs. A high tech passenger airplane computer gone faulty at the worst time. What does Jesus and a bunny that lays eggs have to do with eachother.Garbology. Knowing all the vitamins... and tones of other stories, history, facts and quotes.

If I get bored with one thing, I move onto the next. It's about literally everything that ever was or could be.

I have to recommend my new book, Twisted Fate, available on Publish America dot come and soon to be available on Amazon. Its based in the motorcycle club culture and is about a 16 year old girl that runs away from home with the sergeant of arms...its the first in a series of books that dive into the biker culture from a woman's perspective and follows the character through many years of love and pain and fear and growing up. Find me on Facebook for updates and character pictures soon! Enjoy!

a song of ice and fire series. its five books 1- a game of thrones 2- a clash of kings 3- a storm of swords 4- a feast for crows 5- a dance with dragons. these books have it all. the chapters are from different characters points of view. there is fighting and wars. love and romance. treason and betrayal. there are the cunning characters and the loving trusting ones. the horrible ones you wish would just die because they are that sinister and ones you will be so sad over their death. not everything is as it seems. the world it is set in is amazing and you will wish you could be there. there is no shortage of imagination. it is definitely a page turner.

I really liked 'Eragon' which was about a farm boy who goes out in the forest to go hunting when he finds a dragon egg. But that's just me who likes the book in my opinion. It's a long book so if you have the time, maybe you should read it!

Add a comment...

Dean Koontz's books are mostly pretty good but I think his novels, 'Dragon Tears' (aka 'Tick-Tock') and 'Midnight' are superlative. I've read the latter ( a real race against the clock) four times, something I've never done with any other novel.

An oldie but goldie is Frederick Forsyth's 'The Day of the Jackal'. So are the Riverworld novels of Philip Jose Farmer.

'The Stand' is an old reliable but of King's recent books I particularly enjoyed 'Duma Key' and 'Under the Dome'. Stay clear of 'Lisey's Story'. I don't know what he was smoking when he wrote that mess.
