no clue.  I guess just look for contemporary authors that are similar to what you like that has been written within 5 years  or go to the past and look into more classics.

My favorite author is V.C. Andrews.  I just finished reading the classic Dracula book.  It was pretty good.  Also, Shutter Island was a great book.

Have you read the Harry Potter series? I re-read them recently and LOVE these books even more now than when I was younger.

I'm reading Dracula right now and really enjoying it. I read jane eyre and wuthering heights last year and they were both fabulous (especially jane eyre). Have you read rebecca by daphne dumaurier? That's one of my absolute favorites. Similar to it, but still unique enough, is the contemporary novel the lamp.
