What do you guys think of Jodi Picoult's books? I have read quite a few of her books and I found them captivating. It was hard for me to put her books down. Please share your thoughts. :)

i found them really captivating also, the first book I read was My sister's keeper, my sister recommended the book to me, and I love Jodi picoult from there.. I recently read vanishing acts and 19 minutes, and I also love it both. The twists in her stories are amazing and will leave you dumbfounded. Plus her books are cheap! hehe. =)

The first I read was Vanishing Acts. I agree with you. For some reason, her books are cheaper than most! :P But they have more quality in it than other expensive books. I guess it's in the publishing company who prints her books. It's very very good reading for such a price.

I have only read one of her books, "Plain Truth". I really enjoyed it and feel the author did a lot of research in order to write this book. I have every intention of reading more of her stories. I really want to see the movie "My Sister's Keeper" which will be coming out soon, though I would prefer to read the book first. Movies aren't as good as books and once having seen a movie I tend not to read the book afterwards. Jodi Picoult is an amazing author and look forward to many more reads from her.

I have read "My Sister's Keeper" and I liked it very much. I think it was one of her best. I really want to see the movie too although I also believe movies can never actually top the book. But who knows? Maybe it'll be different. Try reading "Keeping Faith". It's also an excellent read.

The genre is called domestic fiction. I think her books are great. I just finished her new one, "Handle with Care". I think she's a really good writer who gets to your heart!

So now I know which genre she belongs to. :) I plan on buying that one soon! I just finished "Change of Heart". She's one of my favorite authors actually.

I have been an avid reader since I was a kid but I can honestly say that I've never heard of Jodi Picoult....what genre does she write in?

It's hard to say which genre she writes in as her books have very different story lines. All have a twist to them though and that's what makes her works very captivating. Some have a love stories as minor stories but aren't really the point of the book. All of her books though seem to deal with moral issues/ethics that not many of us encounter but still happen in other people's lives.
