    These all sound great. Sorry i can't contribute, the last thing i read was a textbook and before that Harry Potter. Can't wait to read again for pleasure!
  • One of my favourite books is "The Alchemist" I have read it twice and everytime I read it I discover something new about myself. I love it !!
  • I'm a big fan of Jody Picoult. I've read everything she's published. They all focus on taboo issues that make you think "what would i do".

    if you like to read about WWII and the holocaust, you can't beat Sarah's Key, there is a movie coming out about it and The Help was just as awesome! can't wait for that movie. Unbroken is another good one.

    The Hunger Games trilogy. It's a must-read.

    Just starting this. WOOT.

    I like anything by Jodi Picoult, but most recently I read House Rules, and it was awesome!

    Also, the author Mitch Albom has done some amazing work.. if you haven't read "The Five People You Meet In Heaven," GET ON IT!!! My favorite book. I read it over and over and over and.... well you get the point.
  • I'm working on the Dune series right now, I never realized how much I like sci-fi fiction until I started them :3 I'm usually more of a fantasy genre gal :)

    A couple of good fantasy series: The Sword of Truth series & the Howls Moving Castle series <3 Addictive! The former is way more serious than the latter, it's kind of nice having different things to read for different moods hehe

    What is it about? I've seen it all over but never actually looked to see what it's about.
    Heaven is For Real, A Prayer for Owen Meany (takes a while to get into but so worth it :smile: ), Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, and my all time favorite The Outsiders.

    Ever read any Elie Wiesel? He's an excellent Holocaust/post-Holocaust writer.

    Water For Elephants was amazing! I finished it within 2 days because I couldn't put it down. Right now I'm reading some Beatles biographies and a Ted Williams autobiography. Where The Heart Is was a great book, very similar to the movie and I can't decide which I liked more lol.

    A few classics I always enjoy reading are Catcher In The Rye, 1984, and Animal Farm.
