Can I join in?
I loved the babysitters club, SVH, Anne of green gables- I actually downloaded all of the Anne books and reread them last year, stayed up late to do that!
I've also just read a few of the Billabong series, by an Australian author, Mary Grant Bruce (another childhood book) really hard to get a hold of them though!
I don't think I have read many of the books you guys are talking about, I really enjoyed Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult, actually most of her books (especially the earlier ones) I have enjoyed. PS I love you, that was so incredibly sad, a few others by that author were ok too
I'm having a total mind blank atm about what books I've read lately hehehehehe I'll have to go put my thinking cap on!

Welcome! Of course you can join. The idea I think is just to get lots of recommendations and chat about books. Sounds like you enjoy a bit of chick lit so would probably enjoy a lot of the books many of us mentioned. I've gone across a few genres though with game of thrones etc.

Thanks grin
I have been meaning to get to game of thrones. And the hunger games too. You're right, love chick lit, I call it light fluff hehehehe
I will pretty much read anything and everything except poetry! Love a good romance novel or crime novel. Anything by Michael Connelly is fantastic- I highly recommend his Harry Bosch series.
Crochet Mumma welcome to our book chatting!

I too love Jodi Picoult! She is one of my favourite authors! I actually didn't like 'Leaving time' though...I just found it so slow! But I like pretty much all of her other books. Well, actually I didn't like 'Lone Wolf' either..

I love hunger games series too! I really didn't think it would be my thing, but a friend insisted I read it and I was hooked!
Thanks Mummsy smile

I thought the ending in Leaving time was mind blowing, and I thought lone wolf was a little slow. She seems to really get into the subject she is focusing on, a little too in-depth though on some occasions! I could not get into the one about the heart transplant at all. There were a few books of hers around that time which I just gave up on after a few chapters. And I hate doing that!

Oh we all like different things! I really liked the heart transplant one!

I just couldn't cope with all the elphant references in 'leaving time'!!! If someone wants to do a spoiler for me that be great... smile I THINK I generally know the twist but...

I loved 'nineteen minutes' and 'the storyteller'. I thought the storyteller was brilliant. I think 'perfect match' was one of the first books I read of her and it stayed with me for so long afterwards.

I liked Leaving Time. But I couldn't figure out how I didn't foresee the end - it seemed so obvious!!

As for being slow I think I read it after a book that was very emotionally taxing so it was a good reprieve IYKWIM.

Just finished Let Her Go ... enjoyed it and like Fractured it seemed to leave me thinking about a lot that wasn't in the story. smile

Started the Mothers Group so give me a day or two and I will report back on that one!

I enjoyed 'let it go' I want Dawn Barker to write some more books!!

Ooo yes! Let us know what you think of Mothers Group! It was a while ago I read it, but found it interesting! Misskel recommended it! Oh Misskel! She would love this thread!!
Literally just finished Bellagrand - Paullina Simons.

For any Bronze Horseman fans this is like a prequel. It started a bit slow but wow it got really good! Now I want to pick up The Bronze Horseman and read it again. Except it's on the other side of the house and everyone is asleep so maybe another time! Lol

I should add my what's next list here and see if anyone has read any of them smile ... some of them are form recommendations that I got from here but I can't remember which ones they were.


You should do that, maybe it would give us all idea's too smile
Just finished Mothers Group. I clearly didn't read the blurb what it was about as didnt realise there would be a tragic accident.
In "real life" I doubt they'd all be friends but it was fiction after all!

Ok I need a new book now... Open to suggestions! smile
Just remembered an old fav of mine. White Oleander by Janet Finch. Have you ladies read that? It's not too long and is a good read!!

I'm ready Dorothy Koomson - Rose Petal Beach now. About 40% through it. I can't put it down when I start reading but at the same time I don't feel like much has happened. I do like her writing style though.

Have downloaded one called end of eternity (freebie!) first of a 4 book series so will see how that goes

Steph - yeah there's a lot of story before it all comes together smile
