I love to read. I actually eat books. When I am on a book binge I can read a dozen books a month. I've been to the library 4 times in the last 2 weeks. Once I get started I just can't read enough. It is a nice escape and it is relaxing.
I like romance novels (like Nicholas Sparks) or funny lighthearted novels (Jennifer Weiner) and books that are a little edgier and tackle deeper issues (Jodi Picoult - my current fave).
I have been pretty limited in my knowledge of good authors. Like I said Picoult is my newest obsession and I have read almost all of her books, or have them on hold at the library. She was recommended to me last year when I put out a request for suggested authors. If you haven't read one of her books...run, don't walk to the library and try one out. They are very intricate and moving. Love them.
But now I am running out of books by my usual authors and need some new ideas. I don't like to read mysteries or fantasy. It just can't capture my interest - or scares the bejeezees out of me. I tend to really like books about relationship between people - not necessarily romance, but more about relationships than "issues". If that makes sense.
So how about you? Who is on your MUST read list?
