    The book thief - Marcus Zurscak (not sure on the spelling)
    Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
    Wicked- The life and times of the wicked witch of the west - author has escaped me right at this moment
    And then I have my favourites that I re-read all the time- the Harry potter series, the hunger games series etc. good for when I want a comfortable old favourite and no challenges.

    I'd love to read this. I saw the mini series and I quite liked it even though I had to endure that annoying woman whose name escapes me at the moment. Gah.

    For me...

    The virgin reading of each Harry Potter book.

    The Time Traveller's Wife.

    The Girl in Times Square, and Tully by Paullina Symons

    Anything by Christopher Pike when I was in school

    Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian

    Carrie by Stephen King

    I hate the Da Vinci Code but can never put it down. He can't write for cr@p but gee I love the plot.

    Early Sookie Stackhouse

    Anything John Marsden

    Meh. I remember reading. It was awesome :-)

    Memoirs of a Geisha. Awesome book.

    Also, Night at the Viper Room, the biography of River Phoenix's life. It was such a sad read.

    Almost anything by Bryce Courtney.
    My dirty little secret addiction is to Jackie Collins books lol (don't judge me I know they are trash lol)
    Enid Blyton Books particularly "The Magic Faraway Tree" & "The wishing chair" I read to DD at night before bed and usually keep reading after shes asleep lol.
    And one book that I read when I was young, maybe 13 or 14 was "The diary of a street kid"
    The first time reading it I didn't understand it fully then reread (several times since) in my more adult years and it hits home because of the reality of it.
    Also the diary of a call girl series and The girl with the dragon tattoo trilogy.

    I read alot lol.

    It is number 2 of a series of 3. I loved it and could not put it down.
    Me too! I did maybe perhaps skim through the rather detailed list of exactly which IKEA items she bought, though. That went for over two pages from memory?!
