  • All the Twilight Saga books. I know a lot of people think its retarded...but I think that those are the people who havent read the books. The books are amazing..very well written. I love those books!!! Way better than the movies.

  • What Happy People Know by the guy who runs the Life Enhancement Program at Canyon Ranch. Brilliant!!

    Everything Terry Pratchett has ever written (sci-fi/fantasy spoof comedies)

  • Reading Prospect Park West by Amy Sohn. I just finished Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby (so hilarious and a quick read) and Nurtureshock (non-fiction, kind of boring but all about raising kids).

  • Actually, the Twilight books ARE retarded and yes, I've read them...

    Anyway, some good lit:

    "The Pillars of the Earth" (Ken Follett)
    "World Without End" (sequel, Ken Follett)
    "Labyrinth" (Kate Mosse)
    "Shogun" (James Clavell)
    "Interview With The Vampire"/"The Vampire Lestat" (Anne Rice...anything by her, actually)
    Anything by Bernard Cornwell, Jack London, Jane Austin, the Bronte sisters, Juliet Marillier, and Steinbeck
    "The Art of Racing in the Rain" (forget the author at the moment)
    "The Godfather" (Mario Puzo)
    "The Thorn Birds" by Collen McCullough (her "First Man in Rome" series is really good too)
    Terry Pratchett, Garth Nix, Steven Erikson, Michael Criton
