I'm still reading The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley.

That's a tough question Ellen but here are some of my favourites: Louise Penny, Gillian Flynn, P.D. James, Faye Kellerman, James Patterson, Maeve Binchy, Linda Castillo, and Sarah Addison Allen and of course Janet Evanovich is a guilty pleasure. I'm also looking forward to Pallisades Park by Alan Brennert. I loved Molokai and Honolulu so I have high hopes for this one.

the only sarah addison allen book i have read is garden spells. when i was in washington i found the girl who chased the moon and bought it. then i found the sugar queen on paperbackswap. so, i have those to look forward to soon. although i heard the sugar queen was not as good as garden spells. what did you think of it?

Ellen,

The Sugar Queen was the first book of hers that I read and it made me look forward to her other books. I think you will like it.

I finished The Orchid House or (Hothouse Flower) by Lucinda Riley and I'm going to start A Bad Day For Sorry by Sophie Littlefield.

Right now I'm reading a short book for practical purposes -- Sacred Bridges: Making Lasting Connections Between Older Youth and the Church by Mike Ratliff. :smileylol:

 

After that I'm going to read Snow Falling on Cedars.

I'm in absolute hog heaven; my local library just started offering ebook loans! I signed up Saturday and it's been almost as much fun to scroll through the offerings as it is to read! No more worrying about returning books and I can pick out books in the middle of the night -- Yee haw! LOL

Let's see... I just finished The Lilac Bus by Maeve Binchy, one of the few of her's I hadn't read... and New York to Dallas by J D Robb. Just started Strawberry Shortcake Murders by Joanne Fluke; I wanted the first one in that series, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, but it wasn't available, so I've got it on digital hold.

Oh gosh...I've got a bunch of go to authors... J D Robb, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Debbie Macomber and Lisa Jackson are just a few.

The list on Books to Read this Summer Instead of 50 Shades of Grey inspired me to re-read Fathers and Sons by Turgenev for the first time in decades. It's a very good translation and it's easy to follow, but the small print is hard on my eyes, so it might take a while to finish it. I might read it in shorter sessions and get another book at the library to read late at night.

I'm about to start Deadlocked, by Charlaine Harris. I love this series, lol. 

My go to author.... Stephen King. Just about everything Stephen King writes is very good. Even the few not so good ones are better than most writers of that genre. Okay, I have to add a few more, lol.  Kate White, Dan Simmons, Dan Brown and Charlotte Harris.
