    isn't she the one who wrote the "Confessions of a Shopaholic" series? I only read the "Shopaholic and Baby" one, but it was great! It had a blurb from "Remember Me" at the end of it, looked really interesting!

    If you can, try looking up "Anatomy of the Spirit" by Dr Caroline Myss. It was a great read and kind of gets you to look inwards for things. A friend bought it for me while I was recovering from a surgery and it was great!

    Janet Street Porter "life's too F**king short" Is quite uplifting and funny. Can't beat a bit of Marian Keyes for nice girly reading too, but stay away from this charming man, it's quite dark xx

    Cheers ladies... Im going to go to whsmiths and have a look...

    ive never read the shopaholic series although loads of ppl have recommended them!

    Tyff is that book hard to read..? My concentration levels are really at an all time low at the moment... the title sounds as though it would be quite hard to follow?!?

    Yes! :)

    I would also recommend The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith. Lovely, light reads - lots of fun.

    i LOVE reading and i must say i agree with you saying they sounded young, i thought they sounded really common... the kind of wording/writing/speech you would expect from the shameless show type people :rofl: kerry katonas books were more so like that too! doesn't stop me from buying them though :rofl:

    not sure if you like chic lit/light reads your original post made me think of self help books :rotfl: i am a chic lit whore :rofl: i have looooads of books! if you want any of the s.k books i could lend you some (haven't got them all)? i haven't read them yet... but there no rush on reading them at all if you want toborrow them foryour hols, would save you some money! if you want to lend i can send them to you if you pm me your address, i can sendthem off tomorow.

    also... jane fellon/fallon (forget whather name is, heard she's ricky gervais wife?) 'forgetting mathew' fab fab fab! i loved it, and alot of people i know who like chic lit reads liked it too.

    surprised nobody has mentioned cecelia ahren (SP?) i liked if you could see me now, was hard to get into a first so confusing i was like whaaat? then when i got past first few pages it was fun. ps. i love you, is as you are proballyaware a bit of a weepy but is super super feel good and makes you really appreciate people!

    also, nicolas sparks ('the notebook' writer... which is an effing fab film!) has many books, all fab, all give you them warm tummy tickles.

    also 'ex boyfriends handbook' by matt somebody or other omfg. did i lol at that book! it was so peep showesque (ch 4 tv series) was hilarious!!

    so sorry i forgot names/spellings i have and have read so many books that remember all namesis hard work! :lol: or mebbe it's just the infamous preg brain :p

    xXx
