  1. I noticed in Barnes and Noble yesterday that they had a big display for "House of Leaves". They've come up with a new fancy edition..fyi.
  2. What did you think? It was one of my favorite books by Picoult. After that I felt like there was a little too much of a pattern to them. But, I really enjoyed that one. I really liked it. My favorite is still "My sister's keeper'...that one just pulled me in so much..couldn't turn the pages fast enough. (I still have quite a few of her books to read yet..agree she does have a pattern to her writing but still enjoy her books so much).
  3. Just finished "The Pact" by Jodi Picoult Starting "Critical Conditions" by Stephen White
  4. Just finished "Carrie Pilby" (red dress ink) by Caren Lissner. One of the more insightful chick lit books that I've read...it's about a quirky genius type with lousy social skills.
  5. I loved that!I don't know why they don't film Rendell's work, that would make a great movie!In an interview once, she said Bette Midler once optioned THE KILLING DOLL, but nothing came of that.Another author I met told me Rendell's books don't seem that popular in the U.S.I don't get that; she reminds me very much of P.D. James whose work is frequently filmed and always sells very well.I hadn't heard about this author until recently . I went to Borders to check her out and they only had a very few of the large, trade paperbacks. Luckily, I did find a ton of her books at a used bookstore that I frequent.
  6. I'm not sure if any of you guys have read this book "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen. I've been reading alot of buzz about it on the internet..it's supposed to be very good.
  7. That was a nice story..good to hear she's classy.The Lovely Bones truly touched me.
  8. Just finished "To Doon with Deat" by Ruth Rendell
  9. Just finished "Lucia,Lucia" by Adriana Trigiani..loved it
  10. Thanks to all who participate in this thread..I get so many ideas.
  11. Just finished "Armageddon" by Lehaye/Jenkins
  12. The cover of that books keeps haunting me when I go to the bookstore. I'll be a pile of mush if I ever read it.
  13. Just finished "Stolen Lives: 20 years in a desert prison" by Malika Oufkir. Amazing story.
  14. Do you read crime thriller/mystery type books? I'm not sure if read mass market type writers. John Sanford "Prey" books are exellent (Rules of Prey is the first). Karen Slaughter's series (Blindsighted is the first) and Tess Gerritsen's series (The Surgeon is the first) are very good. I also enjoy James Patterson. I know people complain that he is total lightweight but I love his Alex Cross leading man. The Cross book are super fast reads. Have you tried any of them? They can be graphic type books not sure if you read those (Funny these type books don't bother me but horror vampire books..I can't handle ).
  15. Finished "A Sight for Sore Eyes" by Ruth Rendell. The author takes her time setting up the characters..very creepy. I had never read her before.
