    I'm going to sub and hopefully this is still going when I am free of MS and can get back into a normal life, including reading!

    Love the idea, will come back soon with my three suggestions, after I decide which book I want to read.

    this book is a little bit Miss Phryne Fisher, and a little bit Mortal Instruments. I loved all the 20's slang and fashion, and loved the supernatural elements. A real page turner and despite its length, really only seems like the introduction to a much much bigger story.

    Just Between us by various authors
    http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...ust-between-us
    A collection of short stories by well loved Australian women writers on female friendships. A topic that is endlessly fascinating and really not explored very much.

    the Ocean at the end of the lane by Neil Gaiman
    http://www.amazon.com/The-Ocean-End-.../dp/0062255657

    Neil Gaiman is a master story teller and writes modern fables better than most. I am not a fan of fantasy but I am a huge fan of Neil Gaiman. This is a creepy, creepy book. It reminds me of Coraline- the concept of parents not really being parents but malevolent forces. Gaiman also writes children really well I think.
    Oh this sounds like fun! I'll join in.

    You can read any of the previously recommended books? I thought at first it was just the one before you.

    Im a bit picky about what I read, I only get into certain genres. But I read ALOT.

    I'm an adult who mostly reads young adult books. hehe.

    I've looked at the Diviners a few times but wasn't sure if I'd get into it. You make it sound good though.

    But I've been wanting to get Into Neil Gaiman's stuff too. The Ocean... Sounds good!

    I might end up reading both.

    I'll have to think of some recommendations.

    Yes by all means read any of the previous suggestions!
    MM I went back and read the acknowledgements and it made me giigle too. I always read them to see who the author name drops. Can be very interesting to see who people thank. Candace Bushnell thanks her good friend Brett Easton Ellis in Sex and the City.

    @MothersMilk I've just started 'Quiet'- I had it on reserve at the library but forgot to pick it up and had to reserve it again anyway I'm only a few chapters in, but so far I'm loving it. When I was working in child care I could never understand the obsession with trying to 'encourage' the introverted kids to constantly play with the other kids. I always thought we should just let them be.
