Suggestions, please

My goal this year is to read 20-30 books. I enjoy reading, but I have to really like the book in order to want to read. In the past year, I have read all the books on my "to read" list. I have run out of books to read. I have tried picking up books off the best seller shelf, but most of them don't interest me. Please let me know if you have any suggestions of good books.

It really depends on what type of books you like. I have found that I love all of Jodi Picoult's books, especially "My Sisters Keeper". I also recently read, "The Tea Rose", by Jennifer Donnelly, which was very good. Read up on some reviews for them and hopefully you like them enough to go a buy them.

I'm NOT a novel girl so i don't know if this will interest you. One of my favorite books is "Believing Christ" by Bro. Robinson. It is not to long and for me it's a good read. It literally changed my life and shrank insecurities. The sequel is also great "Following Christ"

"Tell no one" by Harlan Coben is good. It's a mystery, but it's kind of 'dirty.' Not sure if you're into that sort of thing. It's kind of weird reading about a romance mixed in with a murder mystery... but the mystery part of his books makes it impossible for me to put down. He's got some books that involve this "sports guy" (I think he's a scout or something). Anyway, I don't like the ones that he's in. I think that's because of my lack of interest in sports.

I'm trying to think of more. I spent three years in a bookstore and I'm really picky about what I read

I recommend anything by Wally Lamb or John Irving. My favorite John Irving is The World According to Garp and A Widow for One Year.

Right now I'm almost done with two books, A New Earth (not sure if you'd like this one, it's hard to "get on board" with) and a potty-training book. I'm also at the beginning of Women & Money by Suze Orman. I suggest that one - lots of good stuff in there.

Memoirs of a Geisha is also very good, if you haven't read it yet.

I am partial to historical novels, so if that interests you, I can suggest lots of titles. If you haven't read Jane Austen's books, I would highly recommend those. Start with Pride and Predjudice, cause I'm going to have a P&P watching party soon!
