    Now that I have recovered from sickness:sick: and I am not as tired as I have been during the last weeks I want (have to) start reading again.

    Can anyone recommend a good book? I enjoyed reading books like Watermelon (and all other ones from Marian Keyes), but I also do not mind a good Thriller.

    I read all sorts from trashy novels to thrillers. I also love Jodi Piccoult but my favourite author at the moment is Kathy Reichs she write books that are similar to the TV series Silent Witness. They have made her books into a Sky One series called Bones but it's not as good as the books.
    I just finished reading Gloria Hunifords Book a bout her dauhter Caron Keating's battle with Breast cancer, it was really moving.I sobbed about 5 times.

    I love Sophie Kinsella with all the Shopoholic series Becky Bloomwood.

    I have all of Marion keyes,adore books like this and I think Jane Green is Fab!

    I have all the books by Gordon Smith -Layla he is quite good~~
    I have every book by Virginia Andrews and biographies I love too

    I was made to read Tolkien and Dickens as a child so veer away from those and for that reason cannot get into books like Harry Potter (I know strange!)

    Just reading Gina Ford-Contented baby book and have to say is very good but we will see.

    Sorry Itend to read cult fiction and philosophy, Ilike heavy going reads normally that fuck with my head and leave me thinking.

    But if I want a lighthearted read I love Ben Eltons books, sooo funny and clever the man is a genius that well reserches his subjects and twists real life into parody and mocks pretty much all conventions.

    For a girly read opt for Incocevable, is was made into a film called 'maybe baby' a few years ago, and its about a couple trying for a baby and lots of bizzare things happening along the way, lots of tears and laughter.

    I like Jodi Piccoult too, that seems unanimous!

    I like biographies too, just reading Helen Rollinson at the mo and just finished Gordon Ramsay's which was really good. Didn't realise he'd had such a tough upbringing. I can recommend Boy George and Bob Monkhouse for celebrities plus David Pelzer's series of biographies starting with A Boy Called It were totally heartwrenching reading.

    Yvanne, I've got a copy of Keeping Faith. I'll see how much it'll cost to send (it's quite weighty, might be mega bucks!) and if you PM me your address I send it out to you.

    Flowers in the Attic. I loved that! Must have been years ago I read it.
