    The last few books I've read have been just less than my cup of tea. I'm on kindle unlimited so I've tons out there, but I really don't like their structure all that much when I go looking. Still sick so I've no patience it seems.

    Any suggestions for a great one in thrillers, sci fi or supernatural? I'm not going for heavy reading at all as my concentration is off right now. Disliked romance, war stories or period pieces all my life, but up for suggestions.

    The Lotus Eaters is an excellent book, ticks all the boxes.
    ETA: reading comprehension fail, nevermind, not that one. It's a romance AND war story.
    Stardust or Anansi Boys by Neil Gaimen, Bad Unicorn by something Platt is a light hearted and fun YA read, The Ill-made Mute combines flying horses, steampunk pirates, and Celtic mythology in a fantastic page-turner.

    I recommend Henning Mankell, a swedish crime author.
    My favorite books:
    The man from Beijing
    The fifth woman
    Sidetracked
    One step behind

    The Blood Gospel Series

    It' a supernatural type book written in a fashion very similar to the Da Vinci Code

    Tamora Pierce.
    I know her books are categoried as youth books but I reread them regularly and continue to love them.
    THey are easily read with great world building and characters.
    Ilona Andrews is another favourite of mine. I love, love, love the Kate Daniels series.
    Karen Chance, especially the Dorina Basarab books (Death´s Mistress).
    Faith Hunter, both the Jane Yellowrock and the Soulwood series.
    Everything by Patricia Briggs, but especially the Alpha and Omega and the Mercedes Thompson novels.
    Rick Riordan. Another youth book author. Everything. But start with the Percy Jackson series. A lot of the series built up on one another (Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus, Apollo).
    Oh, Grace Draven! So good.
