I just finished reading "House Rules" by Jodi Picoult.  It's the story of a single mom with 2 sons, the oldest of whom has Aspergers and is accused of murder.  It's told from 5 different perspectives - the mom, both sons, the lawyer and the detective.  Great read!

You know, it's been a long time since I read anything fun and off the topic of autism. Or Tourette Syndrome. Or cancer. Or mental disorders in general, and my husband suggested I read something just for me, so I picked up "I've Got Your Number," from the library.  It's very light, Sophie Kinsella chick-lit. I liked her books "Shopaholic," then the sequels not so much, but I have to say this was a fun, quick read.  I enjoyed it.

This year I've read the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy and the Hunger Games trilogy. I read them both in a week. Very good. I'm not a big romance person-I'm more of an action/mystery type person, but if romance fits in there, I'll take it.

A friend recommended that one too me. I've not read anything of hers.

I like Dean Koontz. I think there's a new book to the Odd Thomas series. "Odd Thomas" is my favorite.
