    Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris is awesome. So much insight!

    I am reading 14th Deadly Sin by James Patterson at the moment, love these books. Have read 1 to 13 and they were all good!!
    Love Patricia Cornwell books too. Just read her latest one, took me a while to get into it and then couldn't put it down. Was a bit dissapointed by the ending though. I do have to say her last few haven't been anywhere near as good.

    A book called 'Out' by Natsuo Kirino.

    ... And so began my love affair with grotesque Japanese crime fiction

    For those that enjoyed the hunger games; the maze runner series follows a similiar style and is excellent. I read all three books in about 3 weeks (pre kids i probably would have read them in less than a week). Lots of late nights knowing i would be sorry the next day but i HAD to keep reading.

    Goodnight beautiful by Dorothy koomson is perhaps my favourite book.

    Tarnished gold by VC Andews ( pretty much anything by VC andrews is excellent)

    'The accident' and 'malice' and 'the gift' all by danielle steel.

    As others have said paulina simmons books, Tully, red leaves and the girl in times sqaure in particular.

    I bought this one day after hearing rave reviews about it but didn't love it. Might have to dig it out and give it a go.

    Looks like I will be going to the library with a good list of books to pick from this time. Usually I end up borrowing heaps for the kids but nothing for me because I have no idea of what is good.

    I think this one is situational for me. It might depend where you're "at" in the world.

    I read Love Song again recently (Alex Miller) and this time it didn't move me to my core like it did the first time. I remember finishing it and bawling my eyes out in a motel room in Beechworth on my own feeling so hopelessly sad after finishing it.
    This time I was a bit "meh".

    @Cat74 I really adore The Wheel of Time. I was reading the sixth book when I had DS and haven't got back around to it. I'm scared I will have forgotten everything, although I think from memory he does a good job of recapping earlier books. I kind of tune out during all the long descriptive passages because I have no visual imagination and I don't get a mental image so it just bores me, but otherwise...wow!
