    i LOVE Phillipa Gregory's series of books. She wrote The Other Boleyn Girl, which was subsequently made into a movie. The books are much better and the plots are sooooo scandalous! Juicy, juicy books!! They are all historical fictions based on the Elizabethan time. I've also read The Boleyn Inheritance...great book!

      I'm kinda a freak when it comes to my books I like the Anita Blake searies by Laural K Hammilton; basicly trashy romance novals with vampires and ware-animals hehe

      V.C. Andrews, her books are kinda twisted with weird events like the guy the main charater is dateing turns out to be her brother kind of stuff...

      Though right now I'm reading a book someone said on this site "saving your marrage before it starts" really really good points to think about when getting married

      Though now I want to read the Something Borrowed searies but the first one is not on the kindal yet... but the second one is :/ booo

        One really great book I've read recently was Scar Tissue by Anthony Keidis. Lead singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's a book on his life. It was interesting to say the least. Made me feel very greatful for the life I've had!!

          I love Emily Giffen and Sophia Kinsella.

          I just finished American Wife by Curtis Steinfeld. Interesting fiction based loosely on the life of a former first lady. Good read and a page turner.

Dont worry I didnt just ruin the story, but it is an amazing read.
            Oh I've heard about this--it actually happened to two girls from an Indiana school (which is the state I'm from). It was like a van or something from their school that wrecked...crazy story!

              We use to have a book club on MDC. It was fun and then it faded off when I think people got a little busy and so noone discussed the books after we read it. If anyone is still interested I would love to do it again. I think we read some great books. And I am still reading 4 -5 books a week. And would love to discuss them with people.

                  I have yet to read & see the movie but I have heard from several friends (who have seen & read it) that they disliked the movie but love the books! I've just heard that they left things out of the movie or something like that!
