A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving.

If you like biography, William Manchester's biography of Winston Churchill.

William Schirer's autobiography.

Thank you everyone for all the recommendations! I'll definitely have to print out this thread and take it to the library with me.

I was told to read the Twilight series. I'm not one for fantasy or vampires and books geared to the teenager. But, my dd had the first book and I read it. I was hooked. Excellent series I do say.

I really enjoyed the Twilight series also and it actually got my daughter to read (not easy to do)!

There is a series of books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child that are mysteries with serious creep factor. Haven't read the first one, Still Life With Crows, but The Cabinet of Curiosities and Brimstone are good. I'm about to start Dance of Death, which has some lots of potential, from the looks of it.

I think Nora Roberts has a doppelganger, no one can write so many books so fast.

Thanks again for all the recommendations! This is awesome!


@ Shawna--I see you live in Athol. Are you completely snowed in so that all you can do is sit and knit all day long?

Iris Johansen is another of my favorite authors. I got started on her Eve Duncan series and couldn't put them down. Ditto on Twighlight and Nora Robert's vampire trilogy, Key trilogy and Signs of Seven trilogy!

I love the JD Robb (nora roberts) "in death" books. I don't like romance at all but these are great detective stories.

Harlen Coben is wonderful, especially his "Myron Bolitar" series.

I also love the Douglas Preston/Lincoln Childs books. Their FBI character is awesome. "Still Life with Crows" is great!

Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series is really good too.

Nelson Demille is also a favorit of mine, I have read all of his.

David Baldacci: The Camel Club, The Collectors and Stone Cold are all GREAT!

Last but not least I just finished "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" and I am still reeling from it. Very powerful book.
