I'm looking for book recommendations and suggestions. I'm searching for other novels similar to "Good Omens" (by Neil Gaiman and Terry Practchett), that is a love story about an angel and a fallen angel/demon who fall in love with each other and with both the angel and the fallen angel/demon being flawed and gray areas instead of extreme black and white thinking, but other than "Seven days for an eternity" by Marc Levy I haven't found anything else that's similar to "Good Omens" to that extent. If you know of similar novels with these same characteristics, could you give me the titles and authors' names, please? Give me some suggestions if you have any, I am all ears.

Kat.

I started Frankenstein a couple years back but ended up losing the book, I saw it on my shelf earlier and thought "Oh yeah, I was reading that," so I decided to just restart it. Turns out the edition I'm reading is a "Norton Critical Edition," meaning that over half the pages in this book are just extra stuff so this isn't going to be as long as I was thinking at first.

I'm currently reading:

- "Buffy the vampire slayer: The deathless" by Keith K. A. DeCandido:

Synopsis:

"SOMETIMES IT'S BETTER TO BE OUTSIDE OF THE "IN" CROWD...

As if Ring Day weren't enough to make Buffy Summers anxious (she can't even afford one of the less expensive silver bands), the Slayer has her hands full trying to figure out why an average split-level house in Sunnydale has all the vampires spooked. When she arrives at the library to discuss this new development with Giles, a package he's received from an old folklorist in Russia reveals what's going on: The stars are properly aligned for an attempt to resurrect Koschei the Deathless, a long-dead evil sorcerer. So while her classmates are busy choosing rings to demonstrate their school spirit, Buffy must figure out how to keep someone from reviving Koschei and, should she need to resort to plan B, how to kill him again.

A little investigating soon leads Buffy and the gang to the necromancer who originally killed the sorcerer, an immortal Russian sorceress named Yulia Dryanushkina, who can control vampires (which explains their reluctance to pass by her place of residence). When the crew pays Yulia a visit, she assures them that with Willow's assistance, she would be able to kill the sorcerer again should he be revived.

Neither Buffy nor Willow are particularly comfortable with aligning themselves with the necromancer, but they have no other choice when, twenty-four hours later, the vampires start behaving strangely... and half the senior class goes missing."

- And "Buffy the vampire slayer: Afterimage" by Pierce Askegren:

Synopsis:

"THE LATE SHOW MAY BE YOUR LAST...

Sunnydale, California, hosts more than its fair share of action and horror. It's understandable, then, that news of the long-closed Sunnydale Drive-In's grand reopening with a scheduled night-long festival of classic action and horror movies is met with disinterest or disdain by Buffy, Willow, and Cordelia. Only Xander, who has been spending his afternoons on the drive-in's work crew, is eager to enjoy the rewards of his effort.

Buffy is too distracted to sit and take in a movie, anyway. A frightening encounter with a werewolf ends with its vanishing — not into the woods, but evaporating like a ghost before her eyes. Suspicious people in dated clothing and hairstyles are spotted throughout town but don't appear to be the usual vampires.

And most disturbing, a sleeping sickness begins to sweep over town, leaving those affected in a state of extreme drowsiness — or a coma.

It's no wonder no one notices the distinguished-looking gentleman of indeterminate age. His name is Balsamo. At least, that's what he's calling himself this century. But Xander simply knows him as "Boss" and has been promised a prime parking space for the upcoming evening's spectacle..."

I enjoy reading BTVS novels, especially during the month of October/Halloween season.

I've been re-reading Children of Time. If you've ever wanted a book where half the characters are jumping spiders then I wholeheartedly recommend it. :eyes:

My brother gifted me a book called The King's Name, which he bought in some garage sale. I read some chapters but have put it aside for now since there is a prequel.

I checked out arcanum unbounded from the library (I've read it before) and it occurred to me that this book would be nice to actually own a copy of, just to come back and reference from time to time, to help understand the cosmere (I am hopelessly lost when it comes to cosmere stuff)
