I just finished reading My Sister's Keeper and liked it. Can anyone recommend another good book by this author? Are there any other great books (drama/romance) you'd suggest?????

I loved her book The Pact and have read many books by her. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I love this author! Whenever I need to choose a new book and can't find one I want, I just choose one from her b/c I know I won't be disappointed. I have read about 6 of her books I must say that each one has been great. I need a new book now that I have finished the final Harry Potter book (sigh) and will prob. just go to the book store and pick up one of hers.

I've read all of her books except the one about the Amish girl-- blanking on the title now but it was a lifetime movie.

Every one of her books is excellent-- I read her most recent one (Nineteen Minutes) in less than two days. It's about a high school shooting and it's told from the perspective of a lot of different people in the town. I like her because even though she writes about some controversial stuff , she never seems to be choosing a side.

As far as other good books, I don't read many other books in the drama or romance genre... more of a mystery fan myself. But Maeve Binchy is pretty good-- she writes about Ireland and gets really into the back stories of her characters.

Nineteen Minutes. I read it about one week before the Virginia Tech shootings. It was eerie. In the book, she gets into the head of a tortured soul who does a school shooting. I thought it was a very important book for teachers to read...all those little episodes of teasing and "minor" bullying that we see every day, and the tragic results.

I have enjoyed many of her books. My Sister's Keeper is one of the best books I have ever read. I couldn't wait to get to school to talk about it, especially the ending, with the teacher who loaned me the book! I am trying to get my sister to read it so we can talk about it!

I read My Sister's Keeper earlier this summer and could not put it down! I also cried my eyes out!!

I have Vanishing Acts sitting beside me, waiting for me to read it. I just don't know if I can take another tear-jerker this summer. I also read The Memory Keeper's Daughter -- AWESOME as well-- and cried way too long over it!

I have read every book she's written and loved them all!! As many people mentioned, "Nineteen Minutes" is really good! My favorite thing bout this author is her ability to make me see things from a different perspective. I can't wait to read her next book!

I am reading My Sister's Keeper right now! I just picked it up from the library today and am half way through. I have had a hard time finding a good book lately, but I am really into this one.

I also like Vanishing Act and The Pact. I started My Sister's Keeper on the plane to Chicago and finished it before our long weekend was over. I couldn't read fast enough!

Honestly, you can't go wrong with her books. I read Nineteen Minutes first and was hooked. I am working my way through them all. I like her legal drama ones best. Nineteen Minutes and My Sister's Keeper (talk about a surprise ending!) are IMO her best ones.

I also like to read Patricia Cornwall (Dr. Kay Scarpetta set especially!), Sandra Brown, Debbie Macomber, and Linda Lael Miller (all 3 are romance/suspense writers). Have you read any of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich? HILARIOUS!

Second Glance last week. My first from Jodi P and it was different than other books I've read. I don't know whether I liked it or not.

I,too, have read many of her books. I loved Nineteen Minutes... She is an incredible writer!

With so many to choose from you really can't go wrong...

But I did have to admit I hated Tenth Circle. THat was just strange...

I just finished Salem Falls which was very good. She is one of my favorite authors. I really enjoy her style of writing. IMO, My Sister's Keeper is her best book. I've also read The Tenth Circle. I tried reading Keeping Faith but I couldn't get into it. Happy reading!

Books on CD, tape

If you ride any distance in the care alone, I urge you to try listening to some of these books in the car. I am near the end of The Tenth Circle right now. It is a way to do two things at once when you are really busy. I always have one book going in the car and another on the tape player for when I walk (for exercise). I just have to make sure they aren't too much alike.
