I'm not feeling the 50 shades of gray or vampire anything.  I like easy to read fictions that are fun or a book that leaves you feeling good in the end.  I also like thrillers.  I also enjoy some romance (not the mommy porn stuff).  haha

I'm sure that this isn't helping.  haha

Any suggestions?

Tess Gerritsen created the characters Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles, that are now featured in the series on TNT. Maybe you can check out her stuff.

I just finished "Dalek I Loved You," a memoir of a British journalist who was a young Dr. Who fan.

Anything by Janet Evanovich or Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Those are 2 of my favorite authors. Although one of my favorite books is Memoirs of a Geisha.

Maybe the Bridget Jones Diary books?  I love those.

Boy's life by Robert Mccammon. Definitely not to be confused with this boys life. My dh and I both consider boys life to be our favorite book. We have been through several copies of this book because when we loan it out it's loved so much they don't want to return it. I highly suggest you check it out. If you do please let me know what you think.

The year is 1964. On a cold spring morning before the sun, Cory Mackenson is accompanying his father on his milk delivery route. Without warning a car appears in the road before them and plunges into a lake some say is bottomless. Cory's father makes a desperate attempt to save the driver, but instead comes face-to-face with a vision that will haunt and torment him: a dead man handcuffed to the steering wheel, naked and savagely beaten, a copper wire knotted around his neck. The lake's depths claim the car and the corpse, but the murderer's work is unfinished as, from that moment, both Cory and his father begin searching for the truth.

The small town of Zephyr, Alabama, has been an idyllic home for Cory and his friends. But now, the murder of an unknown man who lies in the dark lake, his tortured soul crying out for justice, causes Cory's life to explode into a kaleidoscope of clues and deepening puzzles. His quest to understand the forces of good and evil at work in his hometown leads him through a maze of dangers and fascinations: the vicious Blaycock clan, who defend their nefarious backwoods trades with the barrels of their guns; a secret assembly of men united by racial hatred; a one-hundred-six-year-old black woman named the Lady who conjures snakes and hears voices of the dead; a reptilian thing that swims in the belly of a river; and a bicycle with a golden eye.

As Cory searches for a killer, he learns more about the meaning of both life and death. A single green feather leads him deeper into the mystery, and soon he realizes not only his life, but the sanity of his father may hang in the balance.

Welcome to the imagination of Robert R. McCammon, the New York Times bestselling author who now takes us on a whirlwind voyage into the realm where innocence and evil are on a collision course. Boy's Life is a tour de force of magic and wonder, a journey that is at once joyful, unrelentingly mysterious, and hauntingly poignant.

I am always up for a good Stephen King or Dean Koontz book any day. And for romance I pick or Danielle Steele or Nora Roberts.

 I really liked the Nora Roberts trilogy that's set in the Chesapeke Bay area of MD. Forget the titles off-hand. . .

And the Hunger Games trilogy is worth the read.
