I just finished reading Kim Harrison's 'Hollows' series. It was pretty good. I've read all of John Saul and Dean Koontz. I've found I enjoy the more 'easy-read' series tho. Even though I found Janet Evanovich kind of childish, I read her entire series and mostly enjoyed it. Piers Anthony used to be my favorite author so I'm not against fantasy novels. I did enjoy Eragon and Eldest (I have the new one, but it's big and hardcover and not convenient for transport.) As many of you know, I'm a fan of Buffy - so the vampire stuff works for me too. But I don't like historical, political or educational. :) I want simple, easy-to-read, fun entertainment to take with me to the beach.
