Suggestions, anyone, for a good book to read?

Hello Ladies! I am going on a trip in a few weeks to visit my Mother-In-Law, and I may actually have some time in the evenings to read a book! (Exciting for me, it's been awhile since I've picked up a book with two young boys!)

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good read? I like 'mindless' books....romantic, funny, mystery, etc.

Thanks!

  • Jodi Picoult is a good author. You can try the Twilight series. Ummmm... the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz is great.

  • I am nearing the end of book 4 of the Twilight series. Brilliantly written and you can't help but get drawn in to their vampire family!

  • Have you read Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series? It's a comedy, mystery, and romance series all rolled into one. It begins with One for the Money.

  • Pride and Prejudice - if you've never read it, you'll love it. If it's been a long time, pick it back up.

    Mr. Darcy is a dream, Elizabeth is so great - and Mrs. Bennett is my favorite.....

    Classic literature ROCKS!

  • I am just finishing Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews. I've never read her before but liked the book so well that I ordered three others by her. I like light mysteries, and this one is well-written and has an interesting main character as well as well-drawn secondary characters. The story is about a "picker"- someone who shops at yard and estate sales and just random looking around for items that she fixes up and sells at a profit. Her husband left her for another woman, and the main character has moved on and is making a new life for herself. There are moments of comedy, a decent mystery, and as I said very good characters.

  • I highly recomend Christopher Moore. My favorite is Lamb (aka The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal) Don't let the name fool you...this isn't a "religious" book. Its a very funny story of what Might have happened to Joshua (Jesus) from ages 12-30. To give you a taste, it opens with Biff telling you about how he first met Joshua...Joshua's little (half) brother would kill a lizard, bring it to Joshua, and then Joshua would put it in his mouth and bring it back to life so his brother could play with it more. Its very light and entertaining.
