Haven't read the rest of the thread, but the topic caught my attention. Try Phillipa Gregory's first book Wideacre.

I just finished it. I have managed 3 hours sleep the last 2 nights to read it.

It takes a lot to shock me. I was appalled, and I adored every second of it. It's the first in a series. Signing off now to start #2.

ETA: I'd also highly recommend the Niccolo and/or Lymond series by Dorothy Dunnett. Spent a lot of nights greeting the dawn with those books.

Oh! Oh!! And also, K.J. Parker. It's a pseudonym. You'll love and hate the characters all at the same time. Either start with the Engineer's Trilogy, or start with The Company. I'm never sure who I'll adore and who I'll hate by the last page. Sometimes it's the same person for both.

It's pure fluff, but I've been up until 2:00 the last few nights with Marian Keyes' The Brightest Star in the Sky.

I just finished The Hunger Games trilogy and WOW they are excellent. I know they're marketed as "teen" fiction but there is nothing sparkly or silly about them. I highly recommend this series!

I've managed to get in a little more reading than usual over the past few months. (I used to read a lot more.)

Timeline (Michael Crichton) was a page-turner (time travel into medieval France.) Ted Dekker's Circle trilogy is pretty good, and so is THR3E--sort of a psychological thriller.

I'm reading one called The Thirteenth Tale right now about a novelist who finally decides to tell the truth about her background, and loved on called Blue Bells of Scotland, another time travel/ historical fiction to medieval Scotland.

Me: free of the secrets and lies!!!

I second The girl with the dragon tatoo and the other two books by this author. I did find the first one a little hard to get into at first, but mainly because of where it is set I think.

Loved them though, sad that the author died and there will be no more.

I am currently re reading Stephanie Plum books, they are light, quick and entertaining, sometimes laugh out loud funny.

If you like thrillers try

Karen Slaughter
Tess Gerritsen

I'm reading "Bright Shiny Morning" by James Frey.

I like it because it revolves around several characters, with each chapter shifting from one character's story to the next.

It's almost like a collection of short stories, but they all are connected by the fact that it all takes place in Los Angeles.

The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner.

This is the first novel of hers I have read but I love. I have to force myself not to read the entire thing.

I think it is a page turner.

In life, much of what one grieves one never had.

I am a big fan of Harlan Coben - I stay up to all hours of the night reading his books.

"No Second Chance" was the first one I read and I almost read it in one sitting...
