Hi Ladies,
I am a teacher and I like to catch up on my reading over the summer months, as much as I can with a 15 month old by my side. Anyway I have just finished a the last book of my favorite author and I am looking for some other suggustions of authors that may be simliar to Nicholas Sparks, who wrote The Notebook and Message in the Bottle, which are just a few of the more well known books. Or even just any good books anyone has read recently, you know in all your spare time I am sure you all have :) Thanks for any recommendations.

I would like to suggest my book: "Has Anyone Seen My Daisy?". It's the story of my life and you will see why as you read it. It's a mother's story. It is available on (I think they have the best price) though it is listed with Target, Walmart, Barnes and Noble. My name is Peggy O'Conor. I hope you will enjoy it.

I'm reading James Patterson's Sundays at Tiffany's and am enjoying it. James Patterson is nice to read with a little one because his chapters are a couple of pages long so it is easy to pick up and put down when necessary.

Like another poster mentioned, the book "Water for Elephants" is an AWESOME book!!

A few others that I recently read that were great:

"Lottery" by Patricia Wood. Very heartwarming.
"No Time for Goodbye" by Linwood Barclay. One of the best books I have ever read.

I am an avid reader and I love anything written by:

Jodi Picoult
Joy Fielding
Nicci French
Elin Hilderbrand
Cathy Lamb
Jane Green
Emily Griffin
Jennifer Weiner
Michelle Richmond
Joshilyn Jackson

Hope this helps!

Anything by Jane Green or Jennifer Weiner. I also like the Stephanie Plum mysteries by Janet Evanovich (One for the Money is the first one).

I've heard that Eat, Pray, Love is an excellent read.

I just finished The Friday Night Knitting Club. It was really good. Not sure who the author is but I think it's Kate....something :-)
