Just thought I'd share some of my favorite books of 2008. I read a lot (about 2 books a week) so people are always asking me what I'm reading. Here's some ideas if your looking for some good books:
The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger- long but worth it
Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen- LOVED this book. I highly recommend it!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini - I also liked A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author
The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
Promise Not to Tell by Jennifer McMahon
Unaccustomed Earth, Interpreter of Maladies, and The Namesake all by Jhumpa Lahiri- All three of these books are worth reading. She is a fantastic author!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Skeletons at the Feast & Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian- both are great books by the author of Midwives ( which is a great book as well)
Loving Frank byNancy Horan- fictionalized version of the true story of Frank Lloyd Wright's mistress.
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
The Senator's Wife by Sue Miller
Somebody Else's Daughter by Elizabeth Brundage- The Doctor's Wife is also a good one by this author.
Breaking Her Fall by Stephen Goodwin
Rush Home Road by Lori Lansens
