  • I'm reading an AWESOME book for the third time....it's called The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber...(Michel not Michael) it's about a Victorian Age prostitute named Sugar and how she rose from being a pretty common street whore to a governess in the house of the man she was.....servicing....it's about alot more than that but that is the main plot....it's REALLY good and it gives you a picture of what England was like in that age.

  • My favorite is George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series (first book: A Game of Thrones). But it's fantasy, so you have to like the genre. I also love Orson Scott Card's new Pathfinder (young adult sci-fi/fantasy).

    I've got others, but it depends on what you like to read as to whether I think you'll enjoy them as much as I have. :)

  • I just read "Dog On It" by Spencer Quinn - the narrator is a dog! I loved it. I don't usually go for detective/mystery type books, which this was, but the dog's voice hooked me. EXCELLENT book imo.
