  • The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber is one of my favorites....it's about a Victorian age prostitute who works her way up society until she becomes a governess in a very wealthy man's house....it's REALLY good

  • I loved "The Other Boleyn Girl" About Henry the 8th and his wives.
    I just read the Tina Fey book "Bossy Pants" Very good and funny.
    "Water for Elephants" is great.
    "Memoirs of a Geisha" is great.

    That's all I can think of right now.

  • Anything by Nicholas Sparks is great! All of his books are love stories and they are so easy to get in to...I never want them to end! Also, I really, really enjoyed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. They are more action/mystery type books. If you can get through the first 4 chapters of the first book, you will be hooked until the end!

  • The Hunger Games (3 book series) It starts out slow, but I swear it gets interesting! My own mother, who is 55, read it!

  • im into bernard cornwell right now.. he writes a lot of books about historical fiction.. he's got a king arthur series that is probably the most likely out look of king arthur among many other series.

    then there is s.m. sterling who writes the change series which is apocalyptic.

    them swan song... and the decent are some other faves of mine..

    matt braun writes good westerns..

    pm me if you want further descriptions on any.
