ITA! I'm such a bookworm, I can't believe I didn't find this before now. I've been taking notes like mad so I can find some of these titles on my next visit to the library.

I'm just about to start "Exile" by Richard North Patterson. I'm looking forward to it - I usually like his books, although usually when summer hits I prefer something a little lighter. Any good "chick lit" out there? I do like there to be an actual story involved, not just total froth!!

Well for chick lit...nothing beats good old Sophie Kinsella (shopaholic)...the "Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants" books by Ann Brashares...I like Belinda Jones (I'm reading "The Paradise Room" right now)...

I'm sure I have tons of other chic lit books buried in my boxes in the store room somewhere that I can't remember

I've read Sophie Kinsella before but I've never tried Belinda Jones - adding her to the list, thanks!

She's one of my favorites too. I've enjoyed all of her books that I have read and I agree that she is always very thought provoking. When I'm done, I always want to find someone to discuss it with My Sister's Keeper is one I've recommended to lots of people because it really makes you wonder what you would do if faced with a similar situation.

I am reading Mercy by Jodi Picoult. I don't know if I really like it but I have to finish it before I start a new one. I first read My Sisters Keeper and I have not cried so hard as what I did in the end. I went to work the next day with my eyes all puffy.

I cried for 2 days after reading this book. It was such a fantastic book.

I kept telling DH you must read this book. He finally tells me 'Are u kidding? Do u think I'm going to read a book that has u in such a wreck.'--LOL Had to laugh a little when I thought ouf it like that.

I also liked Vanishing Acts by Jodi. It's about a girl who has lived w/ her father since she was 4 and was always told her mom died in an accident. Fast Foward to when she's in her 30s and she finds out her dad kidnapped her.

I am going to finish Vanishing Acts today. I found myself crying at such odd times reading this book. I can't wait to get to my space where I can read. I love this book.

Default Mysteries - American Cozies

Lately I've been on a mystery kick - the quickie kind that's in a series. Like the scrapbooking mysteries by Laura Childs, the card making mysteries by Elizabeth Bright, Death on Demand series by Carolyn Hart.

These are not very deep or thought provoking, but sometimes a fun read nonetheless.

Default My Sister's Keeper

This was such a great book! It was chosen for our "One county, one book" program we have in our (upstate) NY county. There were several copies at all the branch libraries, discussion groups were formed, etc. We were even fortunate enough to have Ms. Picoult come to our area for a free (to the public) presentation this spring! I read in our local paper that there were over 1,000 people in attendance. Unfortunately, I was not one of them. It was a very though provoking book, for sure. - Annette

I just finished "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" which was great but not quite as wonderful as I had expected. I am now 1/2 though "Water for Elephants" and it is FABULOUS!

Well...I just discovered this board so I don't know if I'll get killed for saying this or not...I just finished reading Dear John by Nicholas Sparks and they're all the same! I of course HAD to finish the book, but when it was over I was like...wow...that was a HUGE waste of time! lol, I'm about to start a mystery series by Kathy Herman called THe Baxter Series. I've never read anything by her, but I'll be honest, the books looked a lot like the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson and I LOVED those!
Oh, I'll also edit my previous statement, I really like The Guardian by N.S.

I just got this Evanovich book. I love, love, love her. Her books are so funny. I've just finished the 6th Target. If I would stay off the computer I would have more time to read. Next to stamping it's my favorite thing to do.

I'm actually reading two books right now, which is odd for me as I usually only have one going at a time. One, What We Keep by Elizabeth Berg, is of the annoying trade size that doesn't fit very well in a purse or shoulder bag, so I am reading that at home. The other is a rom com by Shirley Jump, Married by Morning.

I took "Water for Elephants" on a recent weekend away and I LOVED it. A great book! Then I needed another book and had a limited selection at the local Shop-Ko. I chose "The Memory Keeper's Daughter"! It was OK, but same here: not as good as I thought it would be.
You will love the end of "Water for Elephants".

Well, finished it last week and started Gone With the Wind. I enjoyed Vanishing Acts quite a bit, it leaves you thinking and while I like to read to have closure, I didn't mind the way it ended. I'm going to try another one of her books.

You will love the end of "Water for Elephants".
OMGosh did I ever...it was great! Since I finished it, I've read "Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Picoult and "The 6th Target" by James Patterson.

Nineteen Minutes was amazing....I couldn't put it down. Makes you furious and breaks your heart at the same time.

The 6th Target was...well it was a Patterson book, lol. Took me all of 3 hours to finish it. Not thought provoking, but a fun read. Kind of like going to a decent movie, lol.

wow so glad I found this site, started back reading again, and reading a new book every 2 days. Now I have a huge list of books to read thanks to you ladies.

Someone mentioned earlier they read books about abuse/homiced. And don't know why they can read such books as these. I also read these kinds of books. not sure why either.

I just got done reading the books . Don't Scream and The year of Fog. both were very great reads.

Don't scream was about 5 girls from collage. All in a sorority group. Something happens to 1 of the girls and now each one is paying for it. Great read.

The year of the fog. Great read. So sad. Since things like this hapen all the time. Even though it was a fictional book. Could very well as be a non fictional book. I never do this but had to on this one. It was almost too disturbing for me to the point where I couldn't read it anymore because it invlolved a little girl. So I cheated and looked to the back of the book for a good ending to only keep reading it. Still a very sad ending but I can understand why it happened that way.

I have the book "Nineteen Minutes" in my wish list at Amazon and have been debating whather I am up for that kind of read this summer. I have a feeling it will take a lot out of me. I usually read very light books.
I am really into escapism for reading! After reading all of your comments I may go on and get it. I know I will be consumed....can't put it down.
I bought a Jane Green book yesterday at B & N. I enjoy her books, again the escapism.

I'm about halfway through Kay Hooper's SLEEPING WITH FEAR. Bit of a spooky premise: it opens as the heroine wakes up with a splitting headache and no memory of the past three weeks of her life.

I thought I would go ahead and post that now since I will have my head in a book for the next....oh...however long it takes to finish it and will not be taking time out to post! Happy reading to you all!

I'm working my way through Jane Green's Swapping Lives. I'm on about page 160 or so and it's first getting interesting enough to keep my attention. This is my "house book". I also have a no-brainer "purse book" that I carry with me all the time. Something I can pick up and read a page at a time without losing much of the story. Right now my purse book is Paul Reiser's Babyhood. It's hilarious!

I just finished reading My Sister's Keeper. It was GREAT! I will definitely look for more of Jodi Picoult's books.

I just finished HP7! Wowza!!! I felt I HAD to get through it as soon as possible so I wouldn't accidentally find out what happens through spoilers which seem to be everywhere, including the local paper. You ladies are safe though, I'll never tell

Loved it, loved it! Quite the HP week for me since I saw the new movie on Monday night too.

I had been re-reading HP6, but when I picked up my copy of HP7 yesterday, I had to read that all the way through - finished it this morning! Now, I'll probably go back and re-read the whole series again to see if I can pick up on some of the details that I obviously missed the first couple of times I read them.

Yup, that's my plan too - and I want to re-read HP7 because I read it so fast, I KNOW I missed out on a lot of details......

Default I'm re-reading the Chronicles of Narnia. I'm on the

second book that was also made into a movie: "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". I like these books better than Harry Potter because the stories are happier in my opinion. Also, I read that J.K. Rowling got inspiration for her books from The Chronicles of Narnia.
