|Vanishing acts |
by Picoult, Jodi, 1966-
This was my first Picoult novel and really was a challenge, but once I got into it, I thought it was fantastic and new I wanted more. I have read so much of her stuff. posted Apr 22, 2009 at 9:44PM
by Tracy, P. J.
Superb Minnesota Mother-Daughter writing team. This is the first in the series. I met Tracy (the daughter) at a Christmas party and she is just terrific. I highly recommend any of their titles, they have been very exciting for me to read! posted Apr 22, 2009 at 9:40PM
|The tenth circle |
by Picoult, Jodi, 1966-
This book seemed so real to me it was almost uncomfortable. I love the way Picoult makes us relate with each position/character in the story. It isn't as powerful in other books as it is in this novel. Wow, she does a great job with this. posted Apr 22, 2009 at 9:39PM
|Aunt Dimity's death |
by Atherton, Nancy
I just loved this book. It was adorable, witty and edgy enough to make me want to never put it down! posted Apr 22, 2009 at 9:37PM
by Sebold, Alice
Wow! This book is amazing. I was hooked by the first sentence! Alice is so bold and heroic to write something this true and uncomfortable in a way that makes every reader hang on and embrace the discomfort and own the problem. posted Mar 28, 2009 at 1:15AM
|Compromising positions |
by Isaacs, Susan, 1943-
This book is terrific! It really makes you think of the definition of a good relationship, what defines your self-assurance and how your partner/marital sex-life effects your life. posted Mar 28, 2009 at 1:14AM
|The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency |
by Alexander McCall Smith
Thanks to Kim B for turning me on to more books in this series! They are terrific. posted Sep 21, 2008 at 6:58PM

|Fun new authors I am checking out (8 titles)
This is a list of great, fun books that are new to me and I am exploring different authors and wanted to share the ones that I find the most amusing.
|Terrific books (2 titles)
All are books I 'could not put down'. Lucky, by Alice Sebold is amazing about a rape. Susan Isaacs is a terrific writer and her book Compromising Positions I could not put down. There are so few books like this I wanted to make sure mine are all on this list. :)
|Good Mystery/Suspense novels (10 titles)
I love a good mystery/suspense novel, not just the crime/thrillers, but novels that speak about ordinary lives and the mysteries within. Jodi Picoult is a great example.
|Charming Books (15 titles)
Books with great, colorful characters and funny anecdotes.
