I finished Rebecca a few hours ago, and started A walk to remember, I read it a few years ago in Dutch but now I have it in English.

The Constant Princess by Phillipa Gregory. It was really good; most of what I knew about Katherine of Aragon was from her later years, so it was interesting to read about her as a young woman.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I just finished the Twilight series and was in the mood for more vampires. This is much creepier than Twilight, but I like it. It's a slower read so I can savor it. *shiver*

Does an audiobook count?
I heard much about Twilight, and I found it online, I finished it and am now listening to New Moon. I wanted to 'read' the book before seeing the movie, so I was glad I found it so fast.

I've got my hands on Cherry Adair's books about T-FLAC counter terrorist force. Hot stuff. Operatives who are wizards.

I just finished American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. I didn't like her other book, Prep, but I thought this one was very good.

Now I am starting Robinson Crusoe for my mother/son book club.

I just finished reading Nappily Ever After and Nappily Married by Trisha Thomas. I agree with the previous comment by missmonie; they're good chick lit but a little bit raunchy at times. I've started reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.

Beautiful Boy by David Sheff.

Its about his son's drug addiction. I wanted to read it sooner but I waited for the paperback edition to come out. I can not put this book down. Seriously. My grades are suffering.

I love the Twilight series! I came into it late and read it all in about a week.

Just finished reading Frankenstein by Dean Koontz. I read book 2 and realized he hasn't released book 3 yet! Come on Koontz baby!

I read A Thousand Splendid Suns this summer and agree that it was an unbelievably good book. I'm currently about 20 pages from finishing Angela's Ashes. It's also really good. I'd highly recommend both books.

I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I did! I'm reading Parallel Worlds by Michio Kaku next.

Totally! I say that only because most of my books are audio books. I don't have much time to sit and read. But, I can listen to one a week while driving or at work. Luckily, I can follow the story and do what needs to be done.


I'm currently listening to Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston. It's ok. Not as good as some of his other books I've listened to.

Next up is Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters.
