Hello fellow reader......I too wish I could cruise more...I think I might be addicted to cruising AND reading... My favorite genre is Cozy Mysteries....however I too love the Little House on the Prairie series...and yes I am adult too. I haven't read any of the Harry Potter series....would you recommend it?

I recommend the Harry Potter series. I’m an adult, and enjoyed them very much. Super easy reads and feel written well that you get immersed quickly. I couldn’t put a few down until I was finished! I was fortunate to read some before they hit the big screen; I also recommend that if you have not seen the movies yet wait and read the books first 😊

Yes!! I would recommend Harry Potter!! Like SunshinesJ says, they are very easy to get into and hard to put down. I also agree to read before seeing the movies if possible. The first few books they were able to fit into movies but as they got longer and longer the movies miss alot that you learn in the books. I also like James Patterson and Sue Grafton and some of Nicholas Sparks.

I am a school librarian...basically I turned my love for books into a fabulous career! I read at least 4-6 novels a month during the school year and probably 8-10 a month during the summer! I love all sorts of genres, but tend to lean towards Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Horror & Action. My most favorite books are: IT by Stephen King, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the Harry Potter series

I work at a high school and I am always in the library checking out books. I just read To Kill A Mockingbird about 4 years ago and was so good!! I really enjoyed it.

My mother was a middle school librarian for 10+ years. ;-)

Can you recommend some historical fiction books for someone who enjoyed My Brother Sam is Dead and Johnny Tremaine?

Thanks!

Love reading! I’m now picking out my reads for my cruise on the Magic in a few days. I love those cliche Fabio cover romance novels. I know they are cheesy but I just can’t help myself.

Love to read. One of the best things about a cruise is lounging and reading or sitting on your balcony reading to the sound of the ocean. I’m a middle school teacher.

Harry Potter is an absolute must! Don't let the hype of movies/books make you feel like they may be overrated . I can assure you the hype is well deserved!

Happy Reading!

Just back from a cruise on the Pride. I took a copy of "Dangerous Crossing" by Rachel Rhys. It was fantastic.
I read each afternoon for a break from all the activities and excitement. The warm days out on deck and the cooler ones in a comfy seat somewhere by a window.
I finished it and am now longing for more books along the same lines. Any suggestions?

I've been a college librarian for 30 (yikes) years. Whenever we sail, I take lots of paperbacks with me - some are romance and some are action.
