Max Brooks is hands down my favorite zombie author. He's the guy that wrote the Zombie Survival Guide and "World War Z". Both are pretty good reads, if you are interested.
I've been trying to read YA novels (Young adult, for ages 13-20), but I am just too old for it. I can't relate to the one-sided, awkward romances anymore (I'm 23 with a long term BF, sooo). XP I hate Twilight, but when I think about it, its probably cause I can't relate to the character at ALL. I read City of Bones, a book a lot of people enjoyed... but I thought all the characters were horribly written. I guess I have a hard time wrapping my head around how the characters can be so caught up in romance they forget they are about to be eaten by zombies. Makes 0 sense imo.
Now I am picking up the Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones as its commonly known) and finding it up my alley... since the romance in those books don't halt the plot or slow the plot. If anything they motivate the plot, which is great!
What genre do you like? I like most anything really. If I could recommend a book to you to branch your appreciation of other genres, you could try "Warriors," its an anthology of hero stories in every genre! I found it a great way to learn about new authors too. :3 Its edited by George R.R. Martin... heck, its the only reason I bothered to pick up the Song of Ice and Fire books.
