Newbie book worm :)

Hello everyone. I just stumbled across this board about a month ago and I figured I'd introduce myself Smile I'm so excited to have found this board!! My husband isn't a reader so there really isn't anyone to chat with in my house about books. I just finished The Other Boleyn Girl which I couldn't put down! I loved it! Does anyone have any suggestions on page turners that I should check out. I've got Twilight on hold at the library but I'm looking for something else until it comes in Biggrin

What kind of books do you like? YA books? Fantasy? Sci-fi? Romance?

Hey Carly! Glad to have you join in over here. I liked the Vampire Academy series, recently. Twilight series is awesome. Now that it is June, our new selection is Midwives by Chris Bohjalian. For me it was a page turner. It kept me reading well into the night and I didn't want to put it down when I first read it.

Check out our What are You Reading thread (lots and lots of ideas on it!)

Welcome. :wavehello:

If you like historical fiction, our last month's book club book was Pope Joan, which I really enjoyed.

Also, Sharon Kay Penman has some awesome historical fiction about British kings.

Phillipa Gregory {The Other Boelyn Girl} is my absolute favorite author and I have read just about everything from her! I just finished "The Boelyn Inheritance"

I would recommend the "Wideacre" trilogy from her. They are her first books and she paints the picture so beautifully.

I am sure that you will enjoy her as well!

I've decided to take a little break from her and give another author a chance, so I've picked up the first in the Sookie Stackhouse series {Tru Blood}. So far, so good!

Happy reading and let us know what you pick up next!
