Hi All
I posted a thread on the BOOK link on here but no-one appears to reply!

So thought i'd post one on here too!

Anyone reccommend any good books - I like oldy fash one's wiv bit hardship and poverty but not into Catherine Cookson or Josephine Cox.
Especially love Lesley Pearse but I've read all of hers - also love Dilly Court but again read hers.

I also love a bit of drama/crime - read all of Martine Coles and Mandesue Hellers.

Am also parshall to a bit of chick lit - read all of Jill Mansells, Cecelia Aherns and Cathy Kellys.

Please please help me - hate being without a good read x

I LOVE Lesley Pearce! If you like that kind of stuff try The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. Also would recommend Marley and Me, totally different but such a lovely book :D It's about a dog.

The Island is Victoria Hislop I think. I like crime and especially the
J D Robb bookes all titled ".... in death" and set in 2050 but not scifi just how you could easily see it could be.

Hope you find something, pity we can't do a book exchange I must have about 6000 oops

Harlan Coben is great, have read all of his. Lisa Jewell good chick lit, 'Love reading' is a good site to help you choose what to read x

Sophie Kinsella is good chick lit - the shopaholic series is great!
If you go to fantasticfiction.com and type in the name of an author, it will list all the books by them. Near the bottom of the page it suggests people who are similar to the author you are looking at!

Just an additional thought, if you are like me and go through books like there is no tomorrow, try bookmooch.com as you can send books out to other people, and take their books too!
