Best book you ever read?

I love reading ... but recently have been looking for a real page-turner!! Been disappointed in the last couple books I've tried reading.
I like authors such as: Sidney Sheldon, James Patterson, Stephen King, Koontz, etc.... (I also liked the "Hunger Games" books!)

  • One of my all time favorite books is Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. I read it as a teen, and still to this day thoroughly enjoy reading it.
    Another favorite is Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. A classic!
    And of course, anything by Stephen King!

  • ooh, I thought of another one:
    The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer ~ I must warn you, it is sad, and disturbing, but wow it is an UH-MAZING read! He has I think 3 other books that follow the first one. True story about himself. Great one!
