    I read two of Kristin Hannah's books and liked them both. the most recent was firefly lane, and i also read true colors. also good chick lit, and they are quick to read

      I loveee to read!! I'm addicted to James Patterson, however I got twilight for Christmas, and normally I'm not at all into those books but they were AMAZING!

      I just read The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks, He is the same guy who wrote The Notebook!!! Anybody in love with that book or movie, hasssss to read the wedding :)

        here's a little book update for you guys. This is just going to be easiest for me to list them by how many stars I gave them on goodreads.com (it's awesome! check it out) Keep in mind I rarely give a book 5 stars.

        5 STARS
        the host - stephenie meyer
        summer sisters - judy blume
        the book thief - markus zusak

        4 STARS
        prep - curtis sittenfeld (the beginning of this book gets 5 stars!)
        the sweetness at the bottom of the pie - alan bradley
        garden spells - sarah addison allen
        the thirteenth tale - diane setterfield
        sarah's key - tatiana de rosnay

        Okay, what have you been reading lately?

          I am reading Wally Lamb's The Hour I First Believed. Almost finished...very interesting book about Columbine and the after effects. Next on the list is Jodi Piccoult's The Pact.

                      Hi ladies!
                      Glad I found this thread!

                      Just finished two books by Martha Southgate that were really great (not chick-lit)
                      Third Girl from the left
                      The Fall of Rome

                      The fall of rome was fabulous! the other was a great read, very racially charged though. Super well written.

                      Also just finished a fun read called The Sweet Potato Queens First Big Ass Novel. It's definitely chick lit and had me laughing out loud.
