-The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini-anything by Cecelia Ahern :) check PS I love you, Where Rainbows End (aka Love, Rosie or Rosie Dunne) and If you could see me now.-Veronika Decides to Die by Paolo Coelho, the first half is useless but it gets better!-Life of Pi by Yann Martel-Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth GilbertI guess you probably know most of them if not all, but they are all that I could think of beside Classics :)get well soon xx
have you already read the books from Stieg Larsson? (the Girl with the dragon tattoo, the girl who played with fire...) It's called the Milenium edition. the first book was already filmed and hits theaters soon. For more romantic I also like Nicholas Sparks, Marc Levy.I ordered another Jodie Picoult the last days, I read my sisters keeper couple month ago and it was really heart moving. And in about ten days the new Dan Brown - The lost Symbol will be released. Hope there is something you like....All the best and get well soon
Ahh!!The Elegance of the HedgehogThe History of Love by Nicole KraussExtremely loud and incredibly close (If you haven't read it)The unbearable lightness of being by Milan Kundera (This is on top of my favorite books list!!)
As Jess suggested: Eat, Pray, Love. I personally believe every woman should read this book. I absolutely love it. Also, you get carried away by her travels so hopefully it will help you forget you are stuck and bored (although it might make you want to travel too...).I personally love the classics, especially F. Scott Fitzgerald. Tender is the Night is a favorite of mine.The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath. It's not necessarily the best cheer-me-up book, but I still think it's a great book.When I'm stuck somewhere (like on a long flight/in an airport, etc.), I like to read girly books. I recently finished one by Candace Bushnell (author of Sex and the City) called One Fifth Avenue. It was a fun book...and, blogging becomes central to part of the plot!I hope you find something among everyone's suggestions that takes you away from your boredom!!
Oh wow...I have far too many that I would list!Um...how about...--Life of Pi--something inspirational (I can see that Eat, Pray, Love is a common suggestion)--A Prayer for Owen Meany OR The Cider House Rules (John Irving is, in my opinion, great)--something by George Orwell--or you could always revert back to awesome easy reads, like "Tales of Beedle the Bard" :)
Hello!!!!Interesting new design for your blog! A book I recently read and suggested to a fellow Chica was Gotham Diaries. I will have a review of it on my blog in a day or so!Hope you are well and feeling better!Smooches,Sassy Chica
I just finished "Life of Pi" and recommend it. I am also a huge David Sedaris fan. I love to read right before bed and Sedaris is light and makes me laugh :)
White OleanderInvisible Monsters (and whatever other Chuck Palahniuk you can get your hands on)The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NighttimeHouse of Leaves (if you're feeling ambitious, and have two free months to get through it)
I enjoy works by Maeve Binchy (esp. The Glass Lake) and Phillipa Gregory (The Other Boleyn Girl- much better than the film)
- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger- The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver- Can you keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsela- Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I concur with the Chuck Palahniuk recommendation, sans Snuff. You can probably scrap Pygmy too. I read a lot of memoir. I would suggest My Lobotomy by Howard Dully. Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs by Chuck Klosterman, Killing Yourself to Live by Chuck Klosterman, Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel, I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolf, 1984, The Trial, A Brave New World, any Jean Paul Sartre, and for brain candy: Jodi Piccoult.
