    Nora roberts

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by Viridian, Sep 25, 2015.

    Has anyone read any books by Nora Roberts? I see she has written a phenomenal amount of books and i was thinking of ordering a few, though i'm not sure which ones. I've been reading mixed reviews about her more recent stuff, that her writing is 'slipping' and its pretty much the same story lines re-hashed.

    Just wondered if anyone on here had any thoughts or could recommend one or two of her books.

    Thanks

    I've read Northern Lights. It was good. Kind of the standard romance/detective story. It didn't make me want to go out and buy all her books but I'd read another one of hers if someone handed it to me.

    Thanks @GingerCoffee, there's so many to choose from. I fancy the cousins o'dwyr trilogy but the reviews weren't great, the main reason being that its very similar to two of her earlier trilogies, but given i haven't read any of her books i may just enjoy them. I just had a look at her new book under one of her other names (j d rob) in the shop Sounds interesting but its cheaper from the book depository. I'm mostly intrigued about the quality of her writing/ideas given how much she churns out.

    I just got done with Delusion In Death, one of the J.D. Robb books. Seriously disappointing. I don't think she's actually trying anymore.

    I guess The Daughter Of Smoke And Bone will be coming to a theater near you soon. I can't find anything about a release date, only that they were finalizing a script last spring and something about having a cast in mind.
