book club? ya right!

i have never been a big reader. i kind of go through little spurts of reading and then i won't see the inside of a book for months. 
i wish i was better! 


i am currently going through one of those rare times that i am actually interested in reading!! go me! but i am almost done with the novel i have been tackling for the past 3 years. okay, come on...i don't read THAT slow! i have read other books during that time but this particular book was rather hard to get through. obviously. but i was determined to finally finish it & move on.

so for all your book worms out there, do you have any good novels that you just loved??? i'm not into sci fi or fantasy, sorry i only got through the first harry potter. i love girly books, mysteries, historical ones or basically anything with a good story that will catch my attention early on!

help me out!! i would love to be introduced to new authors or books that i would probably never find on my own.

  1. I like to read quite a bit and love most girly books. Try either one of these two authors. I have loved just about everything they have written.
    Maeve Binchy or Nick Hornby
    Good Luck.

  2. Have you read Safe Haven yet? I wanted to read it before I saw the movie, so I just started the book a few days ago. Love it so far!

    1. I have not read Safe Haven, but I have been dying to see the movie. Maybe i'll read it first. Good idea :)

  3. I second the Nick Hornby nomination and although you don't like fantasy/sci-fi (and really neither do I) give Margret Atwood a try. Her books are usually about some non-existant society that may have some strange elements, but they are an interesting way of looking at people, which I know you like.

  4. Oh man, I have to REALLY love a book to finish it. I am not a book worm, that's for sure. There have been a few books, though, that have grabbed me straight from the beginning! Precious few :)

  5. Oh, I love reading so I am chocked full of suggestions! Anything by Jodi Picoult is fabulous, she's a favorite of mine. I also loved Gone Girl, The Fault in Our Stars, This is How You Lose Her and Crazy Sad True Love Story. All great!

  6. You have to read Gone Girl! It gets your attention right from the beginning and I couldn't put it down! It's one of the best books I've read this year.

    I've had the same problem recently. I love reading but can never find the time to finish any books...

  8. Jodi Picoult is an amazing author, I've read My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, & Sing You Home - WARNING: they can be a real tear jerker!
    I'm also a romantic sap so I love anything by Nicholas Sparks (:
    Water for Elephants was great too, & Emily Giffin has a serious out that I really enjoy; Something Borrowed & Something Blue are the ones that I have read but I can't wait to read the next couple.

    Hope you find something you can enjoy!

  10. "The Book Thief" is absolutely amazing. If you haven't read that, hop to it. :) And "Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson is also great. It's one of my favorites.

  11. The most girly novels I read were by Sophie Kinsella (the one that wrote the Shopoholic searies =))) ) Her books are hilarious, interesting and very easy to ready =))))
    Nicholas Sparks is always a great choice for girls =)))))))))))))
    I'm totally in love with Tony Parsons' book "Starting over" =))) To me it was fantastic!!! =)))
    I also loved Charlie St.Cloud by Ben Sherwood
    Aaaaaaand... at the moment I'm reading a book by Marc Levy and he's good too =))))
