It was much different from Twilight, and I didnt think I would like it, but I LOVED it. Even more than Twilght *gasp*

I heard from someone that all her books are good and that she has a lot more?

Sarah Strohmeyer eh? I'll have to check her out cuz I as well only like the funny chicklit.

I like Dan Brown too - Did you see Angels and Demons? - They totally changed it!!!

I just finished "Vanishing." Very good one too. I love Jodi Picoult. "19 minutes" is a powerful one too. I cried.


I loved "the Other Boleyn Girl." I read that on the honeymoon. It was WAY better than the movie.

I really want to read 19 minutes!~ That was the next one on my list by her. I'll definitely pick that up.
Right now I'm reading Emily Giffin Something Borrowed. I also bought Something Blue.

I also have had The Host in my hand a few times, and wondered what it would be like. Have to add that to my list of 'To Reads'

I also wanna check out that site. Thanks for sharing about it!!

I just started reading Jodi Picoult....I bought My Sister's Keeper and I cried! It was so good!!! (I heard the movie has a different ending than the book, so i don't even think i will see the movie). Her writing style is amazing....she has some one-liners that really make you think.

I just bought 19 Minutes and I can't put it down! I am tempted to take a week off in AUgust and read all her books! I heard "The Pact" is good too....

 

Emily Giffin is another one of my fave's....I didn't like Baby Proof as much as Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Love The One You're WIth is also very good....AND she has a new book coming out next Spring called The Heart of The Matter. Can't wait for that one!

 

Some of my other fave authors are: Jeffrey Deaver (the BEST mystery/crime writer IMO), Harlan Coben, Michael Connelly, Nicholas Sparks, James Patterson.

I just finished Something Borrowed, and now just started Something Blue. Really liked the first, and so far like the 2nd.

Jodi Picoult's The Pact is awesome!!! I have 19 minutes to read after Something Blue lol

I too LOVE Jeffrey Deaver!

I just finished reading 19 Minutes, and I have to say I wasn't crazy about it...The story line is really good and I definitely found it sad, but I HATED the ending!!!

 

I am now reading The Tenth Circle (any thoughts??) by Jodi Picoult and The Pact is next on my list...

I'm giving this thread a BUMP....I am in need of a new book as we're taking one last vacation before summer is truly over *sob*

 

Here are a few i have finished in the last month or so:

 

-19 Minutes

-My Sister's Keeper

-The Tenth Circle (hated this btw)

And I'm just about finished Salem Falls....

 

I like Jodi Picoult, chick lit and mystery/drama/court room stuff.

 

Any ideas??

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
