White Oleander by Janet Fitch
I was a Teenage Fairy by F.L. Block
ShopGirl by Steve Martin
My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews

When my mom was alive, she couldn't wait for the next Dean Koontz book to come out, and I wasn't really into that kind of reading.

Recently I've read 2 of his books, and am working on a 3rd.
The way he writes is so very descriptive, and the novels are so intense.

Velocity, The Husband, and I'm working on Intensity

Also, this other book I picked up is called Missing Mom, it's kind of a 'self-help' kind of book. It's about a young woman who loses her mother (is is quite young herself) and how she never dealt with her mothers death until several years later. (which is the same thing i'm going thru now)

I am sure I'll think of some more. I am talking on the phone with my best friend right now, and I can't think.

I heard so much positive feedback on the ShopGirl but haven't yet still read it. Thank you for reminding about this book! Does somebody else who is passionate reader occur confused being asked about favorite/ most recent book? For some reason in such cases my mind goes blank( Though, my favorite book at the moment is Shantaram and I am going to read the second part and have someone to write my essay for cheap.

My favorite book is "Gone with the wind". I read it so many times! Especially during my pregnancy. This book and characters give me real strength!
