Hey nerdy girl, I love the Scarpetta series too, except I always end up reading them out of order which is frustrating. As far as good girly books, I loved "The Secret Life of Bees." But be prepared to cry. Also "Where the Heart is".. soooo much better than the movie, also a sad book. I read about 2 books a week. I make time even though I have a 2-year-old and an 8-week-old and usually end up staying up late. I think I would go crazy w/out my books. Usually I read mystery/suspense/thriller books. Then if hubby works late I have to triple-check the locks and stay awake 'til he comes home.

I just tried a Nora Roberts book. I threw it away. It was "Midnight Bayou" and I'm sorry, I do not want to read about a young mother getting attacked in her daughter's nursery. That is SICK. I do NOT recommend her!!

Uh-oh, I'm reading Nora Roberts right now. I'm halfway through and I like it. That book does sound creepy though.

Thanks for starting this thread, Brittany. I love reading and am always looking for new recommendations. I would recommend "The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant. It takes place in biblical times and has a lot to do with pregnancy and childbirth (the red tent is where the women would give birth). Also, I loved "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" - you will gain such good insight into what life is like for an autistic child (but yet, it is entertaining too). Also liked Life of Pi, and I LOVE the Lord of the Rings - pure magic.

yay, I didn't think this thread would have a big turn out haha. Thanks for all your recommendations ladies, I can't wait to start reading!!

Don't judge all of Nora Roberts writing on that one book. Most of her harcover books have a little more edge to them. Blue Smoke was one I had a hard time getting through b/c it was all about fires and it had some disturbing stuff, but the story was still really good.

austinsmom, its funny I completely disagree with you. I am a huge Anne Rice fan. Not so much the Vampire Chronicles but The Witching Hour series, Cry to Heaven, and Blood and Gold. But I hated the Beauty books.


austinsmom - January 23

Thats ok Miriam if you did not like the beauty series. I remember when I read the first one I was totally shocked cause I did not know anne rice wrote such books but once I read one I had to read them all.......I found them quite t_tilating. I on the other hand did not like the vampire chronicles either and the others do not strike my memory so while they might have been good they were not good enough for me to remember them.


Miriam - January 23

Just goes to show that every person has a completely different concept of t_tilating.

This thread is such a great idea! The last book I got to read was "The Joy Luck Club" by Amy Tan and it was really amazing, and I can appreciate it because I have a daughter myself. Anne Rice is my FAVORITE author. My favorite of hers is "Cry to Heaven" and I just started "The Feast of All Saints." I do admit the Beauty series is a guilty pleasure of mine. She wrote therm under Anne Roclaire (sp?). If you like the Beauty series I suggest you read "Exit to Eden" which was also written under that name I think. The movie industry butchered the book by making it a comedy with Rosie O'Donnell, but its really not a comedy at all. While its VERY racy it is one of the greatest love stories I have ever read.
