      i don't typically read chick lit (sometimes too sappy for me!), but i love love LOVE sarah strohmeyer! her characters are always sassy and hilarious! my recent fave by her is "sweet love".. it doesn't hurt that it has a cupcake on the front!

      i usually read david baldacci books (just finished the camel club series) and i LOVE dan brown. i'm so glad he's finally releasing a new book this fall.. it's about time!!

        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 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??
