Hi Jol77,

Did you like the book or the movie Twilight better?  I liked the book but I am excited to see New Moon.  Dakota Fanning is supposed to play the part of Jane.  She's a great actress.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I definately liked the books better than the movie. The movie is missing so much. I can't wait to see New Moon too. I am hoping it's better on so many levels.. which of course, it probably won't be cuz I've got high hopes for it. lol

Eat, Pray, and Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (A)

I recently read this book because of this list and because a friend of mine suggested it. I loved it in a different way than the Twilight series of course, they are completely different books, but for me, it's still an A! My husband died October 2007 and I wish I could take a year off from my normal life and travel and relearn who I am like she did. I have two kids though and that is completely not possible. It was nice to experience her story though through this book.

Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield gets a HUGE A+++++ from me. It is one of the best books I have read in a very long time.

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccoult gets a B+. The ending suprised me though. I did cry while reading it many times.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer A+ love the whole series

Shopaholic Abroad by Sophie Kinsella  A-I love the Shopaholic series. The movie was not like the books at all. read the book, it is much better.
