  • I loved Water for Elephants and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

    If you like realistic fiction try anything by Jodi Piccoult. My Sisters Keeper is coming out as a movie, but try and see if you can read the book first. I still think about that book and its been a year since I read it.

  • I read a lot of Jodi Picoult books. One of them is being made into a movie ... My Sisters Keeper ... very moving. All of her books are good, in my opinion.

    Right now I'm reading Marley & Me, but can't find time to finish it since I work part time and also have a 1 year old! After I'm done with it, I plan on reading Twilight.

    Another book-to-movie is Angels & Demons. Have you read any of Dan Brown's books? He also wrote The DaVinci Code. I read those really fast, they were very interesting and I was hooked immediately.

  • Haha ... teampalmer4 ... great minds think alike!! LOL.

    Answer by ap9902 at 4:38 PM on Jun. 2, 2009

  • I agree with teampalmer4 and ap9902. Jodi Picoult is great! i just read Handle with Care and it was amazing.
    Other great titles...Marley and Me, The Host, Twilight Series, Prayers for Sale, Angels and Demons, Memoirs of a Geisha, Firefly Lane, A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Kite Runner, The Secret Life of Bees, The Undomestic Goddess, The Friday Night Knitting Club, Barefoot, Little Earthquakes, Good Grief and The Bright Side of name a few. Jenny McCarthy's books Belly Laughs and Baby Laughs are pretty darn hysterical too. LOL
    I LOVE to case you couldn't tell. :)

  • oops, sorry, saw that you said NOT to say Twilight...sorry.

    The Host is also by Stephenie Meyer and it was phenomenal
