The Shack, 90 Minutes in Heaven, The Host.I like reading Amish fiction by Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, and Cindy Woodsmall.
What kind of books does she enjoy reading? I like mysteries and I read Sue Grafton. She has a great series.
'The Picture of Dorian Gray' - Oscar Wilde, 'A Year in High Heels', 'Something Borrowed', 'Eat Pray Love'.Have fun reading!http://fab.typepad.com/brunette
The Red Tent by Anita Diamante. I don't think I really enjoyed ANY book for about 6 months after I read that one.
The Last Lecture... I am about to start Nineteen Minutes. I love Lori Wick, so if she wants something great to read, I definitely recommend Lori Wick books, especially Bamboo&Lace. She is a Christian author.
Eat Pray Love, Those Who Save Us, The Thirteenth Tale
Karen Kingsbury!! There are series:) Best books in the world. Enjoy!
Eat, Pray, Love; The Art of Racing in the Rain (especially if she's an animal lover); A Thousand Splendid Suns; The Memory Keeper's Daughter; The Time-Traveller's Wife; Between, Georgia; The Kite Runner; anything by Jodi Picoult will be quick summer reading, too.(I'm an English teacher, so I have tons of books I could suggest! Let me know if you/she needs more!)
Good suggestions, I may have to choose some and start reading again.
Anything Jodi Picoult! She is amazing! Nineteen Minutes, My Sisters Keeper, The Pact..heck they are all good!!!
"Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" by Emily Griffin,"3 Weeks with My Brother" Nicholas Sparks, "Redeeming Love" - Can't remember the author but SO good!!!
Redeeming Love - Francine Rivers...in fact, all her books are wonderful.I came across your blog by another blog of another blog...funny how that happens. :-)May the Lord's blessings be abundant on this day!
I loved Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and she has a three book series that is call Mark of the Loins. When I started reading them I couldn't put them down.
I'll also recommend The Red Tent and Redeeming Love. Some other favorites that haven't been mentioned yet - P.S. I Love You (by Cecelia Ahern); Love, Rose (Ahern); and I have heard that Three Cups of Tea and Water for Elephants are great, though I haven't read those yet.
I'm hooked on Susan Elizabeth Philips right now! Good romance novels!
I enjoy anything by Jodi Picoult, Emily Giffen, Cecilia Ahern,and Sarah Dessen. As you can see, I love Chick lit.
If she's looking for something a little more in depth, but still an awesome read, try "The Case For Christ" by Lee Strobel. It's unbelieveable!
Oops! My computer went a little haywire there. It was a great book, but I didn't mean to force it on you! :)
Please tell her to read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. It's a classic and it's magical. :)
Totally agree...anything by Jodi Picoult is great! Also...something funny, there is a series by Janet Evanach (can't remember how to spell her last name, yikes!), but the 1st book in the series is One For the Money. Seriously...laugh out loud. Hope you're having a great day! Erika
Big Miracle in a Small townThe one year book of HOPEThe OathThe ShackMistaken Identity5 people you meet in Heaven
I love Jodi Picoult, Barbara Delinsky, and Janet Evanovich (sp?) Jodi Picoult writes about topics that will get you thinking. Barbara Delinsky is romance. No smut...Janet writes the Stephanie Plum series. She is hysterical!
Jodi Picoult is good but it will probably make you cry.Janet Evanovich is great for a light easy read but yet super fun! A little mystery,romance and a hysterical (sp?) grandma!!! SHe will love this author!!
I highly recommend anything by Harlan Coben...he is amazing. Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series is so funny too. Dianne Chamberlin's the Secret life of CeeCee Wilkes....very good too.
Janet Evanovich's series is hilarious! Once you start you are hooked! I have to agree with Val...the grandma is awesome!
The Language of God by Francis Collins. I actually wrote about it in my blog a few weeks ago. It's about how Collins reconciles faith and science.
For Christian authors, I LOVE Beverly Lewis (Amish fiction) and Lori Wick.One of my favorite books of all time is "Joseph" by Terri Fivash. It's a fictionalized account of the story of Joseph, and because the author is a historian, you almost start thinking it actually could have happened the way she describes. Richard Paul Evans is another good author.Nicholas Sparks is good as well.If she likes chick lit, Sophie Kinsella is fantastic. There will be some mild cussing, but it's usually not too bad. Plus, her books are hysterical.
Not sure what kind of read she's looking for, but I like light easy beach reads for the summer. If that's the case...The Janet Evanovich Series "One for the Money", "Two for the Dough" etc.Emily Giffin has some great ones "Something Borrowed", "Something Blue" "Baby Proof", and "Love the One You're With"I also like "Water for Elephants."
I'm about to read Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult. I've also got Bitter is the new Black on hold along with Resilience by Elizabeth Edwards and The Genorosity (sp?) Factor.I'll second The Red Tent though it's a great book. I've also read Eat, Pray, Love. It was a pretty good book as well but not as good as The Red Tent.Have a great day!
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Just getting into Colleen Cobble- good mystery/a litte romance/ Christian author.I love Karen Kingsbury too!
An excellent book I just finished is "The Same Kind of Different As Me". You can get it at Family Chr. Bookstores. A true story - fantastic!Books by Tracie Peterson - excellent too
Most of my suggestions have already been taken: A Thousand Splendid SunsThe Kite RunnerThe Memory Keeper's DaughterMiddlesexPs. I love youMarley & MeThe Patron Saint of Liars The Beekeepers Apprentice (and following books about Mary Russell)All of the Harry Potter's
I have to agree - anything by Jodi Picoult will not disappoint! I would start with "My Sister's Keeper"...the ending will blow you away!Other that I LOVE: The Shack, The Thirteenth Tale, Memoirs of a Geisha, and my second all-time favorite book is Life of Pi. Life of Pi will affect you in ways you never imagined and it will stay with you until you read it again and again! And you can never go wrong with a re-reading of To Kill a Mockingbird!
ANY OF THE JODI PICOULT books are fantastic!! Also Karen Kingsbury is good.A friend and follower in Las VegasTiffany Cox
ANYTHING by Brock and Bodie Thoene...(several series of historical fiction (The A.D. Chronicles, the Zion Chronicles), ANYTHING by Francine Rivers, ANYTHING by Beverly Lewis, The Night trilogy by Elie Wiesel (holocaust survivor), the Mitford series by Jan Karon. For really really light reading....The Tale of Despereaux! Not the dumbed down little movie version but the original book. My kids and I have read it several times. It's a great story! :)

I'd absolutely suggest The Friday Night Knitting Club, and it's sequel Knit Two. Good summer reads b/c they're just enjoyable relaxing books. I loved them.
Memoirs of a Geisha, Out of the Shadows is a great suspense Christian thriller, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is my favorite, I have heard the Kite Runner is great, Secret Life of Bees.
Oh and I thought of two more: My Sister's Keeper and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night
Karen Kingsbury - once you start reading them you can't put them down.
I just finished reading The Apothecary's Daughter & Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen. Both excellent reads! I'm not usually into 19th c. England, but these are worth it.
The laugh that could and did change the world by Dan Wright. AWESOME!
These is My Words, Sarah's Quilt and the Star Garden is a trilogy that I love and will read over and over. It is about a girl/woman in the Arizona territories at the turn of the century (1900s).

I'm so glad so many people posted their favorite books...I can't wait to go visit the used bookstore and get some of them! I would recommend anything by Kristin Billerbeck. She is a Christian "ChickLit" author. I love ALL of her books. She also has a blog: http://girlygirl.typepad.com/girly_girl/
Anything by Nicholas Sparks or Kristin Hannah!!
The Pilgrim's Progress. SO great!
Anything Karen Kingsbury keeps me glued. Lori Wick is also good.
Haha, yeah I'm not into Twilight either. How about "My Sister's Keeper," by Jodi Picoult? I read it a few years ago and it was amazing. Just recently I found out they're making a movie with Camron Diaz and Abigail Breslen. But tell her to read the book first, because you know how it is -- the books are usually significantly better than the movie.
Secret Life of Bees, Mermaid Chair, The Kindness of Strangers, The book of Bright Ideas, Molokai, Strong For Potatoes, The Bean Trees, Leaving Mother Lake, the Mitford series
I'm reading Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels. They are very funny and suck you in!
