The Time Traveler's Wife!!
Oh! It's amazing! I've shed a lifetime supply of tears on that book, and it's been worth every drop. It's a great mix of adventure, drama, romance, comedy, oh! It's amazing.
Teen Crushes: Harry Potter and Twilight.
Do I really need to explain HP? Come on.. lol.
Twilight! Eek, I AM a fan girl. Yes, I would love nothing more than to be Bella Swan and all that jazz, but in actually, it's a good YA book. The characterization is clever, the plot makes your heart race, and the content gets really cute to vicious. I enjoy the books immensely.
Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey - fantastic. Confusing as hell, but still, magnificent. Finishing it feels like an accomplishment, like you've just solved a puzzle. Which, essentially, you have (through the characters). Palahniuk is amazing. I have a new fetish for blank fiction and dark humor.
Can't go wrong with Crichton. :)
(btw, I'm new. Can't you tell?)
