BEST READS EVER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD

Hey Janey, all three of Stieg Larsson's books were great, but three will be all there are. :(

 

When you have finished those, try John Burdett's Bangkok 8 and the sequels: Bangkok Tattoo and Bangkok Haunts. They'll keep you up nights too!

I read a lot and a few of those books I have read and enjoy. The other I will get and share with you, recently I read "The curse of the Blessings" and "White Fire " by Mitchell Chefitz. Both books are great, and the stories burrow into our soul, and stay there.

 

Hugs,

I love Jodi Picoult's books. She has several I've read, but the one that comes to mind is "My Sister's Keeper". It was also made into a movie, but I felt the book was way better than the movie.

Hi Enjoy,

 

I have read three of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books so far. I was very surprised how great they were. Since they are so short and easy, and fun, I was always disappointed when the stories ended so soon. I wanted them to go on and on!


Warm Hugs,

Hi Patty,

 

The book had a different ending than the movie did in "My Sister's Keeper". I won't say anymore in case anybody would like to read and/or watch. Take care :bye:

Shelley- I guess that my tolerance for unpleasant or violent books has gone down. Right now I have one book that is non-fiction and I happen to know the history of the story. I read up to the point I knew it was going to be sad and have not been able finish in months.

What we need is a list of uplifting books that can be counted on to make a person feel better.

 

Surprisingly though, I ordered a DVD called Destinations, which is a Japanese film about death from a funeral perspective- I actually enjoyed it. It was gentle and insightful and not depressing to me. Go figure............
