Sooo many…….I LOVE books. Wuthering Heights is my all time fave. Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I just read The Night Circus and loved it. I also loved Cutting for Stone. Anything by Chuck Palahniuk is a win for me…Margaret Atwood too…and Scarlett Thomas and Mary Roach.

a book that really had an impact on me in the last couple years is called Brother, I’m Dying.. it’s a true story. and if you’re okay with shedding a few tears go for it!

The Little Prince is my favorite book ever. It’s little but I love it. Every message in it is important.

oh man is this the post for me.  first of all, I’m soooo thrilled that someone said the secret of nimh.  it’s for kids, but it’s really cool (nerd alert).  this goes without saying, but if you haven’t read harry potter, read them immediately.  i can even send you the audiobooks if you want.  if you like short stories/ethnic stories i recommend jhumpa lahiri – she has two or three I think, all of which are good.  Kite runner and a thousand splendid suns are good.  If you want something a little more on the edge of your seat, the hunger game series is borderline young adult, but well written enough to be worth it.  if you wantt somethign more educational, shakespeare: who was he is about how a man other than william shakespeare is thought to be the real author.

Here’s a combo of my favorite books and recent good reads:

-A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

-Jane Eyre

-Because It Feels Good: A Woman’s Guide to Sexual Pleasure (nothing earth shattering learned, but it was written like I was talking to a friend adn so empowering!)

-pretty much anything ever by Margaret Atwood (especially Oryx & Crake, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Surfacing) or Joyce Carol Oates (especially Faithless: Tales of Transgression, We Were The Mulvaneys, Sourland, and I Am No One You Know)

-The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (best book of last year!)

The Power of One -Bryce Courtenay

It sound like a self-help book, but it’s an amazing novel that takes place in South Africa during the 1930s-1940s. It is epic. I try to read it every few years.

It was adapted into a movie with Morgan Freeman as one of the leads. The movie can’t possible cover all the ground that the book does, but its very good. They also added a girlfriend in the movie. 🙂

The book: http://www.amazon.com/Power-One-Novel-Bryce-Courtenay/dp/034541005X

I LOVED The Hunger Games trilogy. I was on a cruise and couldn’t put it down, reading it through for the second time. Just amazing.

The Help was also very good and gripping, a bit less intense.
