Oh hey look, I wrote an LJ entry  
Recently my job has become a lot more boring than usual. At first I used to fill my spare time with episodes of TV, things that were currently airing. Then I took to re-watching series of things on Netflix in addition to my daily TV. Now it's getting to the point where I feel as if my brain is melting. Don't get me wrong, I love TV but there's only so much a girl can watch. So I'm here to ask for your help.

Recommend me some books! My default genre when buying books is "Chick Lit" because I use it like my TV, as an escape from having to think to deeply about stuff, as a result I have no idea where to start with other genres. I'm asking you guys because I need new experiences. It can be anything: histories, biographies, crime, sci-fi etc. If I can get it on the Kindle I'll try it. This is your mission should you choose to accept it!
I feel: boredbored
I'm listeneing to: Star Trek: Voyager - 2x12 Resistance

I was literally just thinking about you. :)

Anything by Kim Wilkins is worth reading (she does supernatural thrillers / gothic thrillers / historical supernatural thrillers / etc) or Kimberley Freeman (same writer; it's a pen name for her romance novels).

For crime, Jeff Lindsay, Kathy Reichs, Jesse Kellerman, Tara Moss.

I'm half asleep and my bookshelf is half packed, so just going to go with those for now.

Is there a particular series I should start with? Which is your favourite?

Kim Wilkins is my fav. She's a local here (originally from London), and teaches at my uni.

Jeff Lindsay would be my next favourite.

I read mostly crime, so here are some suggestions: Kathy Reichs, James Patterson, Agatha Christie.

You should read "Are Men Necessary?" by Maureen Dowd. It's the right mix of girly and sarcastic and smart. Plus it's short chapters which should be a plus when you're interrupted by phones ringing.
