You will probably get all sorts of responses. It depends what kinds of books you like -- romance, mystery, science-fiction, biographies, informational, etc. Try "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer (with additional books in the series "New Moon" and "Eclipse"). It's a big hit with almost every woman I know.
I could go on and on. Instead I'll recommend the website GoodReads.Com to you. You can add friends and get all kinds of information on any book out there.

I just discovered a new author with a wonderful series - Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. "One for the Money", "Two for the Dough" etc on up to 13 now. They are funny, light reading.

I just read The Lost Boys from Sudan - a true story of young Sudanese boys (thousands of boys) who were forced from their villages due to war in the 1990s. It is written by three of the boys - who are now men living in the U.S. It is a great story.
I am currently reading Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Lives of Boys. I have a little boy and I am an elementary teacher. I am finding the book facinating in both respects...and learning a lot!

I LOVE John Irving,and I have read almost all of his books--"A Prayer for Owen Meany" is my favorite, but I loved all of them. They all start out sort of slow, but stick with them--they're worth it!

I to would suggest th "Twilight" series, by Stephanie Meyer. They will surprise you. I am normally a mystery reader. I would normally find nothing interesting about vampires. My cousin, who is addicted to them, wanted me to read them so bad that she bought me all three books so that I would feel bad if I didn't read them.
I would also suggest the "Til the boys come home" series, by Jerry Borrowman. I am just starting the 4th and final book in that one. They take place during WWI and WWII. They are about some families from Idaho, Utah, and England and how the wars affect them. The families didn't really exist, but the things around them did. The author did a lot of research to get all his historical stuff accurate.

I also absolutely love to read. My favorite author is Karen Marie Moning. If you like romance novels she has an awesome highlander series. She also has another amazing series out now. Her first 2 books in it are Darkfever, and Bloodfever with Faefever coming this fall. They are not quite so much romance, and are a little bit darker books with vampires and other cool fictional creatures, which I like. Just depends on your taste. I've never been able to put down one of her books! Happy Reading! :D

If you like cookbooks then you may like this read.
Nourishing Traditions by: Sally Fallon
Very different than other cookbooks. A fun and interesting book. I learned so much from it.

I love to read and really like books that take me completely out of my life - futuristic, vampires, mystery. If you like Nora Roberts, but are looking for a bit "more" check out her other series written under the name J.D. Robb. It's a great series set in 2058 + about a female homicide detective, her cases and her life. I have read every one of them (too many to count) and gotten several other people hooked on them as well. The "Shopaholic" series is good as well - if a little slow to start. Oh, and the Dirk Pitt books by Clive Cussler are great adventure stories!
