My favorite author of the moment is Jodi Picoult. Her books are easy to read but are usually about serious topics. Anyone else reading her books?
The only two I wasn't so fond of were Mercy and Salem Falls. Other than that, SOOO good!

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella is pretty good too.
Aside from the chick-lit though, anything by Jeffrey Deaver is good too. The Coffin Dancer and A Maiden's Grave are two of my favourites.

i read a few jodi picoult, but i feel like they are all the same. best picoult was 'my sister's keeper'. same thing w/ anita shreve - read one if you want to read a good book, read more than one if you want to read the same thing all over again. best anita shreve - a wedding in december.
i read eat, pray, love...i think you either love it or hate it. i loved the part about italy, but was bored throughout the rest.
i'm a huge fan of anything augusten burroughs (running w/ scissors, esp - movie was terrible, but book was great), david sedaris (naked - laughed so hard i fell out of my chair), chuck palaniuk and douglas coupland, if you have a sick sense of humor. i also loved the book 'water for elephants' by sara gruen.
currently i'm reading 'when you are engulfed in flames' by david sedaris.
oh, and if you are really sick like me, read 'a dirty job' and/or 'lamb' by christopher moore. in lamb, you find out why jews eat chinese food on christmas, lol.
Amy Tan also writes good beach reads.
