    If you like historical fiction, Brock and Bodie Thoene (husband and wife) write some great books. Most of their books are in series. The one I liked the best is the series called The Zion Covenant. I think there are eight or nine books in the series. It's all about the years leading up to WWII.

    If you like illusions about Amerie don't bother. If you want to understand us better, indespensible reading.

    The Hurricane Sisters & Folly Beach - both by Dorothy Benton Frank (excellent beach reads, all her books take place in South Carolina/Low Country/Charleston, center around strong females and family, etc. I'm obsessed with SC after vacationing there once. I wanna be a southern belle. I plan on picking up more from her)

    Earlier this summer I picked up Dark Places and Sharp Objects, both by Gillian Flynn who wrote Gone Girl. Her books are obsessive. Plus they made a movie out of Dark Places that will be out soon/2016.

    I read Dark Places and liked it but I haven't read Sharp Objects. I've read the Crossfire series and Girls in White Dresses also. I just got done with Paper Towns by John Green and wasn't a fan at all. Remarkable Creaturs and the beach series sound good. I might give them a try. Thanks!!

    Jen Lancaster is one of my all time favorites. I don't know if I've ever laughed at a book like I do at hers.

    ah. good thing you mentioned Paper Towns. I was mulling over that one but I think I'll go ahead and skip it. But I strongly suggest Tracy Chevalier if you like fiction with a little history. Never been disappointed in any of her books

    She's hilarious! I've read Bitter is the New Black and Such a Pretty Fat. Both are very good.

    I just started Blind Man's Bluff about US submarine service beginning after WWII.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?
