Who loves to Read???

I, too, adore reading. I cannot wait to go to Mexico to plop myself on a beach and get caught up on my reading. Here are my favourites

the Glass Castle- incredible- it has a few mentions on here, but is just so good it deserves another

Maeve Binchy- just about anything by her- her new one Heart and Soul was wonderful but honestly they are all great

Jennifer Weiner

Harry Potter series

Rebecca wells (Divine Secrets of the Ya ya sisterhood and others)

Peter Mayle (for travel lovers)

A trip to the beach

Malcolm Gladwell (non-fiction)

Freakonomics (non-fiction)

Lorna Landvik

and so many more....

Ive read every single one of the Sweet Potato Queen books, they are my favorite hands down. Although DH says I cant read them in bed any more because I keep awake because I am laughing so hard

I am so glad I found this thread! I LOVE to read, and I am so excited to start reading everyone's suggestions! I just finished Tuesdays With Morrie and was very moved by it. I can't believe I never read it until now! And someone mentioned The Alchemist, which was also a fantastic novel I recently finished.

 

I was also very excited to see how many of you like Vampire novels! Sometimes when I tell people I read them, I get funny looks!! Has anyone read The Vampire Huntress Series by LA Banks? Its 14 books long, and I loved them all! I have read Twilight and New Moon, and took a break to start the Anita Blake series by Laurell K Hamiliton, which is kinda starting off slow for me, but its a long series, so I'll stay with it for awhile. And I will get back to the Twilight books too!

 

I also LOVE Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. Its such a funny and easy read, great for the summer months! I have also read the Harry Potter series many times, its my happy place!!!

 

Please keep sharing ladies! I love getting new ideas!!

Anita Blake is awesome! It does start off slow. But I do warn you she has alot and I mean ALOT of sex in her books. At the beginning she doesn't but boy does it pick up. So if you don't mind that then you're good. Her other series Merry Gentry is also great. Its not vampires it's faires. Sounds really weird and childish but so not!

Thanks Calia! I don't mind sex at all! Actually the LA Banks series could be considered Erotic, so I'm use to it in Vampire books. My FI loved LA Banks (probably because of the sex), so he's been disappointed with Anita Blake. But I'll tell him to keep plugging along, it'll get better! LOL

I don't think I've ever read a Fairy book, I'll have to check it out!!!

    • 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
