I am looking for a new book to read, and haven't found anything that has piqued my interest yet. What suggestions can you make? I tend to prefer romance & fiction books for women, but any good story can usually keep me intrigued.

I am currently reading "Sweet Revenge" by Fern Michaels. It is a series but I love it. I even got my sister to read it & she is not into ;"women type books".

I've read some Fern Michaels books, but haven't seen this one. Do you know the names of the other books in the series? I might be interested in checking this one out. Thanks!

Hi! I read Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella. I really liked it. I think her writing is great, very humorous but with great story telling flair. I started to read The Undomestic Goddess but just ran out of time! LOL I'm still trying to finish The Devil Wears Prada, too. I can just picture Meryl Streep as the evil Miranda Priestly! LOL

I haven't read that yet, but I actually just heard about it from another friend. It sounds really good, for something light to read quick. I'll look into it asap, maybe it will be my next read. Thanks!

Sophie Kinsella is one of my fave authors. Needless to say, the Shopaholic is one of my fave books. I've also read Can You Keep a Secret. That book is way too fascinating. I was really glued to my seat! I can't wait to get my hands on another Sophie Kinsella masterpiece.

I've read that book, too! So nice, don't you think so? It's definitely a tearjerker! Take it from a certified crybaby... hahaha... I believe those who believe in soulmates will find this book promising.

Believe it or not, I haven't ready Message in a Bottle. I have read many of the other Nicholas Sparks books though. I know there is another new one out, so I was thinking about checking that one out soon. But it would be nice to check this one out too, since it seems to be a great book and I've seen the movie already. I usually like to read a book before I see a movie though. Hmm.

Sometimes I read a romance also. Unfortunately I find most of them dull. The plot is very much alike, the heroine gets into trouble, the hero comes to rescue her... Anyway, there is one I liked: 'Remember when' by Judith McNaught. As for Nora Roberts, the first trilogie I read was quite OK: 'Daring to dream', 'Holding the dream' and 'Finding the dream', and so is the second one: 'Born in fire', 'Born in ice' and 'Born in shame'. Her others are full ghosts, witches etc., a bit too much for me. A little of ghosts/telepathy is in 'Born in shame' also but not so much it would get boring. Both ladies I mentioned are sometimes quite witty, that's because I can forgive Nora Roberts a ghost or two...

I have found that I really like the Nora Roberts trilogies. They are usually quick reads for me, and almost anything she writes can keep my interest.

I would suggest, the Christmas Shoes, The Christmas Wish and the Christmas Blessing for this time of year. I try to read them again each Christmas. They are short reads and remind me of the reason for the season. Also, Nicholas Sparks new book just came out. I have started it, but it is unusually slow getting my attention.

Believe it or not, I haven't read any of those yet. I'll have to look into them, thanks! Let me know how the Nicholas Sparks book turns out!

The last book I read was How to Be Lost by Amanda Eyre Ward. I finished it in 2 days because I got so into it (which usually happens). It is about a woman looking for her sister that went missing 15 years before when she was 5. She deals with her mother dying and her sister having a baby and losing her own job and then driving to Montana to look for her long lost sister. It was very interesting.

That sounds like a very interesting book, thanks for the recommendation! I haven't ready any books by this author, but obviously worth looking into.

The last book I read was Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. Very good book. It's a prequel to The Da Vinci Code. If you prefer romance books I'd suggest the Donovan series by Nora Roberts. The first book is called Charmed I believe. Very good series that I have reread a few times.

Have you ever read Janet Evanovich? She was a romance novelist but changed her style. I love her series starting with "One for the Money". She has others out too, I think I have read all hers now. You'll LOVE them if you have never read her work.

I have just finished reading 'Halfway Home'. It is written by Ronan Tynan, a member of the enormously popular Irish Tenors. In it, he shares his moving life story - so amazing you may find it hard to believe, of overcoming adversity and attaining world success in several different fields. Diagnosed with lower limb disability at birth, he had his limbs amputated when he was only twenty years old and within a couple of months he was climbing the stairs of his college dormitory, and within a year he was winning races in the Paralympic Games. This is just some of his achievements, there are a lot more mentioned in the book. He is a really remarkable man and can sometimes be very funny. I was sorry when I got to the end of this book, as I enjoyed it so much that I wanted it to go on. I certainly hope he writes another one with his continuing life story.

Let me see... have you read The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks? It brought tears to my eyes; it's a very touching and romantic story. Plus, it has a given a twist to romantic stories. It took me no less than a week to finish it!
