I recently read White Oleander by Janet Fitch. It was simply amazing!

Some of my favorite books though are The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns both by Khaled Hosseini - HIGHLY rec'd if you haven't read them yet!

White Oleander seems really interesting.

thank you. :)

It's a really good movie, in my opinion. But I'm biased because I'm absolutely in love with Diane Kruger.

lol, no. I watch far too much TV to be bothered to record every episode I watch. Are you doing it?

I read "The Reader" last year, and I agree, it's really, really good.

thanks. :)

I find it so strange though, the way Reichs writes Brennan's character and the way we see her on the show.

thank you. :D

Hmm...recs. What genre is your fav??
jessica: dk .:. tell me you love medrftngwy on January 3rd, 2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
but there are so many I love!

um... I love stuff about Victorian England, or things like Jodi Picoult's novels.

and memoirs like "sickened" and "when the piano stops" are always really intersting things to read.

how about your favorites? maybe I can give those a try. :)

Have you read "A Great and Terrible Beauty" and the other two books n the trilogy?They're set in Victorian England, and they're good (I haven't had the chance to read the last one, but I'm assuming it's good). My favs are Harry Potter, which I'm assuming you've read, "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel" (by Susannah Clarke), "Howl's Moving Castle" by Diana Wynne Jones, anything by Jane Austen, "Jane Eyre," "The Thief Lord", the "Inkheart" trilogy, "Franny and Zoeey".....okay, I guess that's more than enough, isn't it?? Sorry, you brought up books and I got carried away.

thank you thank you thank you. :D

If you liked sickened and you haven't already read it, ugly by constance briscoe is really good and there's also a similar book called a piece of cake by cupcake brown.
