Favorite books of 2008

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

Happy reading!
