    What other authors do u like? I love chick lit sort of stuff so any marian Keyes (reading anyone anyone out there? now) Jane green and Melanie labrooy are also favorites of mine in this style. Less chick litish I re-read the shark net all the time, (I think by Shane Drewe or something similar...) little coffee shop of Kabul, eat pray love, the slap all brilliant. Please others share great books- I'm a read-a-holic!!!

    I loved the George RR Martin series, I like the girl who kicked the hornets nest, twilight (I like series...) I hated 50 shades of Grey and thought the life of Pi was fairly ordinary... Does that help?! Lol

    Sorry its robert Drewe for Shark net!

    I'm with PP. Not a fan of 50 shades... I love mills n boon n while 50 shades was more 'raunchy' n explicit, it was about as well written.., disappointing considering the hype! Was hooked on the twilight series though, an easy read

    My favourite books are the Belgariad Series and it's follow on, The Mallorean by David Eddings. There are 10 books in total. It's a fantasy series.

    Hmmm...

    I liked The Hunger Games trilogy most recently.

    A few of my favourites are:

    Candy girl by Diablo Cody. It's a little bit risqué in some ways. Diablo Cody is the writer of the movie 'Juno'. This book chronicles her year as a stripper. I loved it!

    The Red Dahlia by Lynda La Plante. My favourite book of all times - a crime thriller. A bit gory I guess in the descriptions of the crime scenes, but SO brilliant!! I couldn't put it down, and must've read it 4 times.

    I love all the Harry Potter books, but I'm allowed to, I'm a teacher. LOL.

    The Bronze horseman - Paulina Simons, the book thief - Marcus Zusak (i think is the author), Jessica - Bryce Courtney, the happiest refugee - Ahn Do, any Mitch Albom book, Sarah's Key - Tatiana ?, Mao's last dancer, guernsey literary and potato peel pie society, any of Kate Morton's books (the forgotten garden is the best one), the hunger games (book 1 is brilliant, book 2 ok, book 3 fair). I could go on and on, I love books.
