My favourite one by Jodi Picoult is Keeping Faith but I also liked The Pact and My Sisters Keeper. Plain Truth is really good too.

I'm currently reading Jeffrey Archer, False Impression, it's actually set around the time of 9/11, but it's 7 different things that happen, that are all related in a weird way, half way through and so far brilliant.

Still reading that Yorkshire Ripper one. It goes into so much detail about everyone involved and I'm still only halfway through. Next puchase (on Friday) is Season Of The Witch. Thanks to Jon for bringing it to our attention, it's right up my street. And Natasha is very nice too (according to the lovely reply she left me on myspace).

*EDIT* Can I just recommend In Cold Blood to everyone? Takes a few chapters to get into but it's well worth it.

I love Sophie Kinsella's books, I've read all of the Shopaholics (apart from the brand new one) so many times and Can you keep a secret is really good too.    

Why are people embarrassed about chick lit? I'm not the most avid reader of it but I think a lot of it is still really good story telling.

don't know why people are embarrassed, I think alot of people think you are not really intelligent if you read chick lit but thats not the case reading is about enjoying the book aswell
