    I love Jemima J - By Jane Green...

    It's an easy read - not too deep about a chick transforming her unhealthy lifestyle ... I reread it often for inspiration.

    The Great Gatsby - set in the 1920s it's about a man who throws lavish parties and a couple who are part of the social elite. Don't mind my crap description I'm running on coffee this morning but this book is a classic and I've read it over and over. I love it.

    To Kill A Mockingbird - 3 kids in the south learn some hard lessons about life and the world and discover the good in people that they least expect. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. So amazing. Good old movie too!

    Oh I love this book, and have read it several times since I first had it in high school English.I'm hoping the movie doesn't ruin it.

    The Red Tent - Anita Diamant

    If you're familiar with the Old Testament. It's the story of Jacobs 4 wives, life of women in those times and the women's perspective of the story (not from a religious POV). It's about sisterhood, motherhood... definitely one of my all time favourite books.

    I know this much is true - Wally Lamb

    It IS long, but not boring.
    Can't really describe what it's about - twin brothers, one has schizophrenia. It's about them, their life, their family/history etc. Both mine and hubbys favourite book.
    (I also LOVED 'she's come undone' by Wally. It's a much shorter read. I was so impressed by his ability to write a female narrative so well).

    Also, the power of one - Bryce Courtenay. I've read it about 13000 times. (and the subsequent books). It's set in south Africa. It's such a wonderful book.

    Off to look up some of these other books you guys recommended.
