I realized that after I named my kids Jessica and Jonathan. If you can believe it, I actually thought they were kind of unusual at the time. WHAT WAS I THINKING?

I love Heather Graham's Vampire series. I like that her vampires are really, really good "guys". Even the werewolf is terrific! I love books that carry on with characters from previous stories.

Y'all have fun reading!!!




I love that series too, in fact anything by Heather Graham I'll read.

Re: New Authors

I really love to read romances! It's hard to find new good authors. Stephanie Meyers Twilight Saga is absolutley AMAZING! It's definiatly not your typical historical romance but i think that everyone should read her books. The Host which is also by Stephanie is also a really good book. Don't pass it by because of the sceince fiction part. It has a lot to do with the love between many characters. Perfect by Judith McNaught (I know she's not new but people should definaltly read it)  is the perfect romance book. I loved every page of it! I hope that helps a little bit, i know i only gave 1 newer author and another older 1 but they're really great books!

Re: New Authors

My 14-year-old granddaughter told me that Twilight was the BEST book she ever read and I should read it!  I was impressed that she read a book with 600 pages! I thought....do I really want to read a book about teen romance? BUT, being a 65-year-old grandmother who wanted to see what a 14 year-old thinks is good now days, I started reading it.  I have a VERY smart granddaughter!!!  I LOVED the book so much, I bought the next 2 and read those.  Couldn't wait 'til Breaking Dawn came out! I know the book is for "teens", but this "teen at heart" loved the series so far.  Hope BD has a good ending.

 

I bought The Host and enjoyed it SO much!  I don't know what it is, but 

Stephenie Meyer's stories just grab your attention and are very interesing.

 

I also discovered another author I like.....Nicholas Evans.  I read The Smoke Jumper.  I recommend it highly.  I loved the story very much.

Re: New Authors

Hi ReadsAlot2,

I also love Nicholas Evans Smoke Jumper I've read several of his and enjoyed them very much. I have a lot of friends who read the Twilight Series but I wasn't convinced that I (a mature woman) would care for a teen read I think you've just convinced me to try it. I love paranormal romance and fantasy and 600 pages doesn't faze me since one of my favorite authors Diana Gabaldon is very wordy in her Outlander series.

Thanks for the recommendation.
