Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - just read it and adored it!
The Witching Hour - not for the story, but for its descriptions of New Orleans
Magician - my favourite since i was 11 or so!
Anything by Terry Pratchett - I've read them all so many time I can flick them popen to any page and go from there...
Life is too important to be taken seriously!

dead centre is by Robin Bowles. she also wrote a book a few years ago about the jaidyn leskie mourder. i am really enjoying it and im convinced that bradley murdoch didnt do it. the story jsut doesnt fit it! and i am going to read another peter falconio book called bloodstain after i have finished dead centre. its from a different author but it will probably show two different points of view.

agreeing with above - Midnight in the Garden of GOod and Evil is great!

Also much love to Catch 22, The Kite Runner, Valley of the Dolls and 1984.

I like reading psychological thrillers too, my favourite authors are Jonathan Kellerman and Jeffrey Deaver...


And I'm a closet lover of romance novels.. :oops:

Yay for Midnight. I'm so happy everyone likes it as much as I do!

Valley of the Dolls, I've heard from many it's a good one, I've been meaning to check it out...
