@MacFaniam24: No problem. The Dexter books are good, too. I had never seen the show but kept hearing everyone rave about it, so I figured the books would be even better. I haven’t been disappointed so far.

I loved The Help!  Not really in your genre but it was so good!

I love the Stephanie Plum books by Janey Evanovich.  They make me literally LOL.

@.twist.: I’ve been on Goodreads for a few years now and I love it!

I also use NoveList to help find new books…most libraries subscribe to the database and you can log in from home using your library card #.  It’s a pretty cool reader’s advisory tool 🙂

I love the entire “..in death” series by JD Robb – Nora Roberts’ pseudonym. 

Also, recently finished up “Something borrowed”.  My interest was piqued by the movie of the same title.

I agree with MissAsB, I LOVE the stephanie plum book! I have read them all at least twice.  Right now I am reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett- it is AMAZING!  I can’t put it down!

I’ve read 2 lately by Lisa Scottoline.  Look Again and Think Twice.  Currently reading Room by Emma Donoghue.  Also very good.

I love the Stephanie Plum series.  They are very entertaining and fun to read. I also love the Scarpetta books by Patricia Cornwell.  Another lighter but interesting series is the Elm Creek Quilt series by Jennifer Chiaverini.  I don’t quilt, but the books are interesting to me.  I love a good series!

Another one of my go-to favorites is the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen.  Those usually have suspense, mystery, and romance all into one. 

I just started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books (True Blood).  Not really my thing, but my sister in law really wants me to read them and since I read a lot, I figured why not.

@.twist.@amanda06: I really wanted to like the Dexter books, but I read the first one and I just could not get into it.  I love the show though.  Do they get better after the first one?
