Something to Read???

I really need to find something else to read. You may (or may not) recall that I posted about having read the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Fablehaven books. I absolutely loved them! Well, I've been waiting patiently for book 4 to come out. It was released Tuesday. I bought it Wednesday. I finished the last 2 chapters Saturday morning.

Now I have a dilemma. What do I read next? I read both The Princess Academy and Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Should I read, I think the next one is Enna Burning?

Or, a couple of my young women suggested that I read The Seer and the Sword by Victoria Hanley.

Some people have suggested the Inkheart books too, but others have said they were a little slower & kind of boring.

I got book 1 of The Sisters Grimm at the library, but haven't tried it yet. We'll see if it's "too" little-girl for me.

Anyway, fire back with any suggestions you might have, or if you just want to throw in your 2 cents about these. I guess maybe I should just suck-it-up & join "Great Reads". Whatever. I guess we'll see.

Loved Shannon Hale's, Book of a Thousand Days!

Shannon Hale is one of my favorites. She has a grown up book called Austenland which was a fun easy read.
Alanah ATE the Sister's Grimm books up. Book 7 comes out in May and she can't wait. I only read the first one though, just didn't get excited enough to keep going.
Enna Burning started off slow for me, but then really got going.
If you like fantasy, you might like Terry Brooks. I think his big series is called Sword of Shanara.
Let me know if you find anything great.

Some really easy fast books to read are by Gail Carson Levine -- she wrote Ella Enchanted. Everyone in my family liked them. I am sure I could think of more if pressed.
