  • I'm into the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich - start with One for the Money - very addicting and quick reads!

  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

    It's science fiction-y so you have to be in the mood for that, but still a pretty quick read and it's one of my faves!

  • Jane Eyre, it is the best classic every. I think that everyone should read it. It is one of the only books that I could not put down.

  • My favorite author is Meave Binchy. She is a writer from Dublin, Ireland. She tells stories that are about the people in a community and how each others lives all intertwine. They are an easy read. Light a Penny Candle, Echoes and The Beech Tree are my favorite. Each chapter describes a character and voices their opinion of the issue discussed in the book. It is amazing that by the end of the book, you will know each character.

  • Working through a bunch of James Patterson. Read "Honeymoon" on Monday, it was fabulous... finished "The Beach House" last night, equally as good!

  • My favorite book is 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' by Betty Smith. It's a REALLY good book.

    But really good one - 'She's Come Undone' by Wally Lamb

    Or 'Valley of the Dolls' is a really good book. It's a classic. LOL

  • You opened a can of worms

    1. Secret Daughter Shilpi Gowda
    2. Nefertiti/The Heretic Queen/Cleopatra's Daughter Michelle Moran
    3. The Time Traveller's Wife Audrey Niffenegger
    3. The Pillars of the Earth/World Without End Ken Follett
    4. Innocent Traitor/The Lady Elizabeth Alison Weir
    5. The Other Boleyn Girl/The White Queen/The Boleyn Inheritance Philippa Gregory
    5. The Lady in the Tower Alison Weir
    How's that? I am a bit of a Historical Fiction (or non too) reader.
