hi! I am new here, this is my first post.
I am a fast reader and my tastes are evolving in terms of what I like.
I would love to find some new books to sink my teeth into!
I used to read Nora Roberts, Joy Fielding, Tami Hoag.
I love the chick lit Sophie Kinsellas, and the Emily Giffins.
I started buying books from recommended lists. I have loved The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and the sequel. The Thirteenth Tale, The Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Society . I just read Still Alice (did not love it as much) Time Traveller's Wife. What can I curl up and really get into? Thanks so much.

Wow it sounds like you have a varied interest in several genres.
Here are some authors I like
Jayne Ann Krentz
Hank Phillipi Ryan
Dorathea Benton Frank
Most of these are general fiction authors with a tendency to have a romantic feel to them, some are straight romance and some are straight mysteries.
I hope I was of some help to you.

An author who I think does not get enough press- and has a new book out ... Rebecca Wells - Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood start with that one, then read Little Altars Everywhere - in tha order. That's not the order she wrote them, but it really works to read them that way.
Her new book is
which I haven't yet read.

How about Janet Evanovich? (One for the Money is the first in the series). Very good through about 9 or so!!! Just fun, light mysteries/romance.
For cozy mysteries, I'd recommend Elizabeth Peters--both her Vicky Bliss and Amelia Peabody series. VERY fun and funny.

Allow me to recommend my novel,
In Consequences, readers are taken on a journey into the lives of a down-low husband, his wife, his lovers, and a cast of others who are affected, whether directly or indirectly, by the HIV virus. The story is fiction but the reality of HIV is fact, and the reality is that each year there are thousands of new cases diagnosed-most of those new cases being women of color and minority. It has to end; and it has to end where it begins-with each one of us.

Hi. I would love to recommend my latest Novel, Office Affairs by Caramel Vixen.
If you love romance with spicy intimate scenes. If you have a thing for main characters who are depicted to resemble real women, the average American woman, instead of fantasy stick size -2's (no offense to those who are) then Office Affairs, is the book for you.
