I am getting ready to go on vacation and am looking for a good beach book. I usually like historical fiction. Some books I have liked so far are Dan Brown's Angels and Demons and the DaVinci Code. Can anyone reccommed a book they they enjoyed? Dont let my interests limit you, I'm trying to read all kinds of stuff this summer, so list all your favorite books and I'll pledge to at least try them. :) Thanks in advance!

I think Joanne Fluke is good beach reading. Very light murder mysteries, but without all the gore and stuff.

Right now I am alternating between a Perry Mason book and a book called Trick or Treat. They are both reall good and I've read them several times before. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I would suggest anything from James Patterson and Dean Koontz. To give you a name of a book would be little them both cause all of their works are good. I have only read a one of Koontz and it kept me in the book i was just mad i only had one. I'm starting on the Patterson and i like the tv show that has come from his books The Ladie's murder club on abc; check it out. They both have mystery and on the edge of your seat. Go to the book story and see what they have.

Vampire Chronicles - The Vampire Chronicles written by Anne Rice
I really enjoy all Anne Rice books. All of her novels are a good read especially the Vampire chronicles and her books about witches. I mostly read abut the paranormal, witches, vampires, cults, horror...I am not on the sweet books..I like also books of Stephen King. Try starting yourself with the vampire chronicles I assure you you will enjoy every minute of it.

Well I just fired up Geis of the Gargoyle by Piers Anthony, sort of fantasy with some tiny touches of sci-fi. Part of a series of books he did a long while back. Just finished Jim Butcher's Small Favor and well, trying to to go on a destructive rampage brought on by anxiety whilst I await the next one. ;p

I'm a big fan of the classics at the mo. They're actually very good and readable. Jane Austen especially has very good books, like pride and prejudice. I'm rading Charles Dicken's Our Mutual Friend at the mo. It's very good, hilarious in places, but it is rather thick so taking me a while to get thru!

Right now I am reading ESCAPE, by Carolyn Jessop about a woman who escaped from the FLDS cult with her 8 children, and who has since appeared on news and talk shows all over North America. It's an absolutely fantastic book.

I am reading Drums of Change by Janette Oke. I would recommend any of her books. She is the author of the Love Comes Softly series of books that are the basis for the movie series directed by Michael Landon Jr.

Currently I'm reading a biography of the famous director Alfred Hitchcock. I have only seen two of his films, partly because they were before my time. The book is called It's Only a Movie. I'm very surprised how fascinating it is. I don't usually read a whole lot of biographies, but I'm glad I picked this one up. It's rather entertaining.

I am re-reading some V.C Andrews books. I found and bought the 4 books of the Hudson series so I am reading them again. I had every book she had written but most were destroyed when the hurricanes hit us in Florida back in 2004, so I was glad I found them. I also like to read the books written by John Grisham, Dean Koontz, Stephen King and others. I like to find and buy books by the old masters also. I re-read Shakespeare often and it gets better and more understandable with each reading. Anywhere is a good place to read a play by Shakespeare.

I haven't really had time to read all that much lately with my finals coming up, but I'm reading Succubus On Top by Richelle Mead. I read the first book Succubus Blues and her other book Vampire Academy. I really love her books. She really captures romance and supernatural. I can never get enough of reading them and am always on the edge of seat to find out just what will be happening next.

I'm reading "The Heritage of Shannara: The Scions of Shannara" I don't know what to expect though, I only just started it. I still don't know what will happen because the story is just building up..

I love pretty much any book Chuck Palahniuk has ever written. I'm currently about halfway through Rant, but I have also read Invisible Monsters, Choke, Lullaby, and another one, but the name escapes me right now. Another author I love is James Frey (A Million Little Pieces | My Friend Leonard). He came under fire after people found out his books weren't real, but I still find them wildly entertaining. Hope this helps! Send me a message if you read any of those and would like to discuss!

We just finished the Grapes of Wrath in my English class. The ending sucked, but it was a pretty good book over all. I enjoyed books like Blood and Chocolate. Random books. xD
