Any particular genre? Or perhaps the better question is, what do you NOT enjoy reading? That way I could cut down the ridiculous number of books I want to suggest right now...

Hell, fling me whatever you want lol.

Fantasy, sci-fi, YA are my predominant fields of reading. Wouldn't mind getting into historical or AU fiction more, so long as they're interesting.

Only recommend non-fiction if it is terribly interesting and well-written though. :/

Don't know if it's on Kindle, but one of my favorites is Mary, Called Magdelene by Margaret George. She writes historical fiction. This one is a pseduo-biography of Mary Magdalene and her role in the life and death of Jesus. I'm not a religious person, but I love the author and this was a fascinating read that's a totally different version of what I was taught about Mary Magdalene growing up.

I have been eying her book on Henry VIII for ages and ages -- have you read it, and would you recommend it?

I don't know what's available on Kindle, and I'm going through graphic novels; "Graphic Classics: Arthur Conan Doyle" being my latest, and I'm also reading "Why Read Moby Dick?"

All that aside, here's something fun to look over. I understand that the first book is already out: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/steamgoddess/an-arcana-imperii-novel-rise-of-the-steam-goddess

Honestly, I highly recommend looking at realmer06's reading list. I love the stuff that girl reads and have become like her little reading shadow. She has some of the best recs ever.

If you're looking for something that will make your cheeks hurt because you won't even realize it, but you'll be smiling the whole time, I continue to read over and over The Chicken Doesn't Skate by Gordon Korman

I also just finished Lauren Myracle's books told completely in chat beginning with ttyl and I adored them. I love that they're outside the box and the characters are very relatable.
