Who loves to Read???

Recommended Posts

I got roped into reading the Twilight books from a couple of coworkers! They were good though :) I also read all of the Emily Giffen (Giffin?) books (Something Borrowed) which was great chic-lit. It was similiar to Jennifer Wiener (who I adore).

I loved this book! I keep hearing she may be continuing this story line with a few more books and I really hope so, I love the characters! Frankly at this point I just want her to write another book, I really like the way she tells stories.

I totally agree. Whenever people ask me what type of books I read I think I scare them a bit, because I really do read a bit of everything, I can't be tied down to one genre. Fiction, non-fiction, biography, romance, horror, you name it, I've read it. I even find myself in the children's section on a regular basis, because the books coming out are just fascinating.

About the only type I haven't tackled is Western, but I haven't crossed it off the possibilities list, you just never know.

Jennifer Weiner- it is LAUGH OUT LOUD chick lit. When I read "Good In Bed" I could not stop laughing. JPitts - I loved Something Borrowed & Something Blue. Twilight was definitely a guilty pleasure too :)
