Another great reading list - this is my first week at Thursday 13 and I now have a long list of books to check out.

Water for Elephants is a great book. My recent favorites include The Help, The Puzzle King, and the Girl Who Fell From the Sky.

I find this list interesting, I have not read any of the books listed here! I should probably start with Sick Puppy because I remember seeing it somewhere, either here around the house or in one of my favorite secondhand bookshops.

Thanks! :)

I love to read, but I have not read any of those books. I love Dean Koontz, Sidney Shelton & Mary Higgins-Clark. I recently read Plan B by Pastor Pete Wilson & that was a very good book.

I have only read a few of these books, my favourite one being The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. That book would probably be one of the most brilliant books I have ever read!

Thanks for sharing your list-I will see if I can find some of them for our Spring vacation.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I LOVED Lamb! I woke my hubs up numerous times laughing so hard. Have you listened to it on audio? It's even funnier. It's very hard for me to pick a favorite but I will say Manchester House by Donald Kirch is my favorite in the horror genre!
