    I recommend The Time Travellers Wife byt Audrey Niffeniger(spelling??)

    Had me in tears and very involving i thought. Sounds quite sci-fi but its not.

    Most enjoyable

    If fiction isnt grabbing you at the moment - maybe think about something different?

    Here is a brilliant book - i think when you are going through weight loss - many people reflect on their whole lives and how they can improve other areas also...

    I love the Number 1 Lady Detective series of books by Alastair McCall Smith. I read six of them when I was hospitalised last year with my gallstones. They kept me going! They are easy to read and have a lovely gentle humour. You may have seen the TV version of the first book which was screened over the Easter weekend. It was the last production of Anthony Mingella before his untimely death. The books are even more special to me as they are set in Botswana and I spent the early part of the 2000's living over there. It is a wonderful country full of wonderful people - but more of that another time! Get reading!

    OOOhh The Shining is a brilliant read, and so is Stand By Me, both by Stephen King and much better than the films.

    Oh nearly forgot, I've just finished The Green Mile by Stephen King, had me in tears, loved it

    I LOVE STEPHEN KING!!! He isnt for everyone though. I dont think his books are scarey, freaky sometimes.

    I have Blaze and it was an ok read, it pays hommmage to Of Mice and Men , Not a "proper" stephen king book though

    My sisters keeper is another good book, forget the author however.

    I must admit I'm a Patricia Cornwall fan - although not so keen on Blowfly!

    If you like detective stories try Sue Graftons alphabet stories starting with A is for Alibi. They all feature a woman PI who is young and fun living in California getting into all sorts of trouble.

    If you like thrillers then Mary Higgins Clark is good.

    The Terry Pratchett Discworld novels are amazing, I get lost in my imagination from the first page to the last every time.

    Dashed good question Jeeves!
    :rotflmao: You so crack me up :rotflmao:

    Back to the books:-

    Jonathan Kellerman (thrillers)
    Jodi Picout, author of My Sister's Keeper amongst others - really thought provoking books. Fab stories which I find really question your individual opinions on the topics covered.
    Nora Roberts - fantasy/romance (Vampires/Spirits/Ghosts/Witches)
    to name but a few authors!

    Patricia Cornwall used to be really good but I did not enjoy the last couple of 'Kay Scarpetta' novels. Could not put the first few down until finished though;)



    Don't know if you have tried your local library. Ours has 'surprise' books wrapped in brown paper (just for fattothin)! It has saved me heaps of money.

    Minette Walters is always a good read, there are usually a few of her books knocking round in charity shops. They are the crime drama but english so not featuring cheesy american female cops who all weight 120lbs....
    Also I've just read the Glass books of the dream eaters which is good and definately something different!
