oh! I have a few books that I defeniatly think will not bore you! These books were great, and all three of them I have set aside to read again sometime in the future, that's how much I enjoyed them =) Okay the first one is called Contest by Matthew Reilly. There is no The in the title, it's just Contest! =) I finished this book in two days, I just couldn't put it down! It was too good! It has a really big plot twist that you find out fiarly quickly. This books is just action packed, and it also gets pretty creppy and suspenseful! The second book is called Riptide by Catherine Coulter. I didn't finish it as fast as Contest, but it doesn't mean I liked it any less. This book has it all...suspense, thrills, action, mystery, it even threw in some humor. I was actually laughing out loud at some parts of it :) And it has a couple of twists and surprises at the end =P The third book is called Crazy For You, but Jennifer Crusie. This is pretty different from the first 2 I recommended. It isn't as action packed and suspenseful as they are, but it still a very enjoyable book! With very well written characters and it's just a very smartyly written book. One more book I'm going to mention is called Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston. I really really enjoyed this book. I think it is a really unique, very well written novel. It has some action in it, but there is also some parts that are really just talking, and not very exciting. I still enjoyed all of this book, but I know some people really prfer non stop action and suspense! =P This book defeniatly has it's moments in those areas, but it also has it's slow (but still good-to me) moments. So check this one out if you want to also! :) If you want me to give you the synopsis' of these books just let me know and I will be glad to do it! :)

why not that will be great, and if you like suspense then read "triple" by Ken follet you will really like this book. it is based on Iraq and Egypt cold war in nuclear domination.

Okay, Contest first then =P It's about an ordinary man who is forced to participate in a deadly contest against his will. He is brought to a huge library, and there he is told about the contest. There are 6 other contestants, and the game ends when only one of them is left alive. I'm not going to tell you the big plot twist, don't wanna give away that surprise =P But you find out quickly. Okay now Riptide: The NY Govenor's speechwriter is being stalked by an unknown person. They called her and told her to stop sleeping with the govenor. But she isn't sleeping with him, never has. But the phone calls keep coming. The police stop believing her after a stalker murders an innocent NY citizen. Then, the governor is shot-so the woman goes to her home town of Maine to hide from her stalker, and the NY police. Then a stranger shows up in Maine, and she doesn't know if she can trust him or not. Crazy For You (i'm gonna copy this one from the back of the book, easier that way lol): "Quinn McKenzie has always lived what she calls a "beige" life. She's dating the worlds nicest guy, she has a good job as a high schol art teacher, she's surrounded by family and friends who rely on her, and shes bored to the point of insanity. But when Quinn decides to change her life by adopting a stray dog over everyones objections, everything begins to spiral out of control. Now she's copping with dog-napping, breaking and entering, seduction, sabatoge, stalking, more secrets than she really wants to know, and two men who are suddenly crazy...for her. -- the end lol. When I first read tha back cover I thought this book sounded pretty strange lol. But it was like...10 cents at a garage sale by my sisters house so I got it. And it is surprisingly a very good book! :) Tyrranosaur Canyon is basically like a treasure hunt novel. Except they are looking for dino bones of like, the largest dinosaur that ever lived. One guy has some stuff that is going to help him find it, other people are trying to kill him to get to it. It's actually a really good book, nothing like I expected.

Hey you should go for Sidney Sheldon's "if tomorrow comes" OR "Sky is falling"....both are good ones....Otherwise if you are lookin for a love story den you should go for Erich Segal's "Love Story"...another one which i am looking forward is "one night at call center"...Have you read that??
