I've read The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult (and most of her other books).   You'll have to let us know what you think of it. I'm just about to start her latest book, the one with "19 minutes" in the title.

"This Book Will Save Your Life" by A.M.Homes.

PROBABLY the best book I will read all year. Quirky tale about a man whose life is so regimented that he has lost track of all he values and whose life is transformed by a mysterious crippling pain which causes him to end up at the ER, and then to a chance encounter with a Doughnut maker who helps him change , and perhaps save, his life. Some laugh out loud moments in a book that COULD become a classic. It has already been compared to "Catch-22" and "Catcher in the rye".

I'm currently reading Persuasion by jane Austen (trying to broaden my intellectual horizons), and Deception point by Dan Brown. I can't seem to get into that like all of the other Dan Brown books though- he is my favourite author at the moment. I think the two best books I've ever read are The Da Vinci Code by dan Brown, and Don't Wake Me at Doyles by Maura Murphy- about an Irish woman who moved with her husband and 9 children to Birmingham, and basically her life story. It's very interesting and also kind of apt for me, being of Irish descent and coming from Birmingham. I don't think anyone else will have read that though as it's not that well known I don't think. I've also read recently A Child Called it by dave Pelzer and The Little Prisoner by Jane Elliot- both about children who were abused by their parents.

I found The Tenth Circle quite hard too .... not one of her better books. Have just finished "Nineteen Minutes" - recommended and, like many of her books, there's a twist at the end!

I finished the 6th Target, by James Patterson, it was fab, as normal.

Just starting 'Close' by Martina Cole, not sure how it's gonna pan out as her last few have been poor, so we'll see.

Will let you all know.

I enjoyed Tenth Circle but not as much as The Pact, it was a bit strange in places looking forward to Nineteen Minutes. I also have Perfect Match by Jodi to read Have you read that?

Recently finished Nevewhere by Neil Gaiman (fantastic read).
Just started Patricia Cornwell's At Risk.  Haven't made my mind up about it yet.
 
Between those I took my regular monthly dose of Spiderman, Batman, Superman, and X-Men comic books.  They were great fun as usual.
(Yes, I am 40 and still read comics) Embarrassed

Lisa, I've read all of Jodi Picoult's books. The only one I didn't enjoy was The Tenth Circle. She's got a few more coming out this year. Jodi Picoult is also on Gloria Hunningford's programme early tomorrow (Sunday), BBC1.
