I feel silly, I reread favorite romances. When I was a child I escaped into reading to stay calm. My mother learned to shove a book at me to have me cope. My go to calm book is ransom by Julie Harwood. My other faves are just the sexiest my alive by Julie James. My latest is lady luck by Kristin Higgins.
Otherwise I love James Patterson serial killer books and the Jack Ryan hooks. What a contrast serial killers and romance.
Not to be forgotten is early Steven king.
sorry post on my tablet

All Agatha Christie mysteries!
I have a complete library of her books. I began collecting when I was 12....that was 51 years ago!

'Started Early, Took my Dog' by Kate Atkinson- actually all her books... Good thriller-y types
Also Stieg Larsson Trilogy
And The Gingerbread House
And 'Filth' by Irvine Welsh
They're all good reads

Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
and my all time favorite and read many, many times:
River God by Wilbur Smith
If you have any interest in ancient Egypt, I cannot recommend this book enough. Its sequel The Seventh Scroll is also terrific.
OMG Gypsy, how did I forget "Mists" and the "River God" series?!!
LOVE those books!!!

Anything by Stephen King.
And Gone With The Wind. The relationship stuff resonates much more as an adult (I read it for the first time when I was 10). Scarlett needed IC DESPERATELY.
For chick lit that's well written, Marian Keyes.
Oh, and the In Death series by JD Robb (Nora Roberts).

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
ME: 54 BS
HIM: 61 WH
Married: 28 years
in R 3.5 years and it's working but he is putting 200% into it (as he should) to make it right again.
The truth hurts, but I have never seen it cause the pain that lies do.

Last Lecture was beautiful.
I did not think I would like Pillars/Earth but... LOVED IT! Poisonwood Bible - every sentence is beautiful.
I am going home to We are Water by Wally Lamb. His book, I Know this much is True was incredible.
Dad bought me, A Tree Grows Brooklyn....a treasure!

Anyone a Jane Austen fan?
I can never get enough of Pride and Prejudice or any of her other novels. I also love reading continuing stories that other authors have done with the same characters. Mr. Darcy's Daughters, Death Comes to Pemberley, etc.
I'm the same with all the movies. Play. Repeat. Play. Though after DDay I'm having a hard time with love...

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. I saw him at a book signing and he autographed my copy. They had just cast the mini-series and I told him I could not see Robert Duval as Gus. I was wrong.
