Hello, people. As you probably figured out from the title, I live in Lithuania. For those who have no idea where it is (there could be a lot of people like that ) It's on the east coast of Baltic Sea, between Latvia in the north and Poland in the south, south-west. I'm 20 years old. Yeah, reaaaaally old. I'm studying English Philology at university and I really want to be a writer. Didn't that sound like one of those introductions at Alcoholics Anonymous? Yeah, thought so . By the way, for those who have no idea what is English Philology, it's the same as English Language and Literature. Lithuanians must like their fancy titles, huh? Anyway, as I said, I want to be a writer. That wouldn't be that strange, but the problem is that I want to write in English. I honestly like it better than my own native language. I haven't published anything yet, but I had some plot ideas. I'm interested in the thriller genre. To tell you the truth, this goal of mine looks quite hard to succeed in, because thrillers generally have a lot of action scenes (DUH). Well, as a non-native speaker, that's my weakest point. That and punctuation. Oh, and let's not forget grammar! It's slowly getting better though My favourite books are The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (not books 6 and 7 though, in my opinion those were crap) and Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I also reading Harry Potter fanfiction. Yeah, laugh. have fun at my expense. Seriously, there are some fics that are better than the original. Not many, but there are. I'm not talking about 1-5, those were okay, just 6-7. Okay, I concede, the quality of writing may not be as good, but the plot... Of course we have to keep in mind that Rowling was writing for children. Fan Fiction can be much more serious-themed. To cut the rant on Fan Fiction and this whole introduction short, I'd like to ask you people for some recommendations for thriller books I should read. There are lots and lots of them, I don't known which ones are the best. As a smart man said once, don't read good books, read only great ones, because your lifetime won't be enough to read all the good ones. P.S. Sorry if my language is crappy. Could you harshly rate it when compared to a native speaker? That would really help me get better... Thanks and have a good day, diabolic.
