I'm curious as to if anyone has found some good titles they want to recommend.

:smile:
On my vaca last week I read:

Girls in White Dresses - Jennifer Close
Remarkable Creatures - Tracy Chevalier (same author of Girl with the Pearl Earring...actually anything by her!!)
The Crossfire Series - Sylvia Day (think 50 Shades but more intense :really: and actually well written)
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.

All I'm reading right now are RV living books, but last week I read Freakonomics, and before that I was sucked into the Rona Jaffe books. And I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and a couple chick books by Jen Lancaster.

I read a lot.

I just finished reading SuperFreakanomics by Dubner & Levitt. If you like interesting observations that are fact driven then this is the book for you. It's an easy read.

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.

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 :yay:

That's it...heading to the library this weekend. She sounds like just my kind of author :lol:
