TG, I like it all. I am a voracious reader and if I like an author I plow through all their books. Charlaine Harris is a particular favorite of mine and that was my intro to the vampire genre. I can only do a few at a time and then i need to do something else. John Lescroart, James Patterson, Janet Evanovich...the list goes on. I have a friend who is a librarian so I get lists and lists of stuff to read. Heeheehee.

Oh, I love the Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum books!!! A friend put me onto them and they are delicious. I'm crazy about the grandmother - makes me laugh so much!!!

The kids got their mom the Twilight books (all 4 hardback) for Christmas. She finished all of them a week ago and can not wait tell the next book comes out.

The next book was leaked and she has it on her website. She talked about not finishing it at all but it looks like she will.

GB, how sweet of you to cater to your wife's interests. While she's on a vampire kick, why not get her to watch vampire movies? The old Vincent Price Dracula movies, Love at First Bite, I am Legend, the Blade movies of Wesley Snipes, etc. That way you can watch them together too. Anyway, just a suggestion :-)

But the series is finished. Everything wrapped all neat and tidy. Is the next book about one of the other characters?

Fishers Mom, have you read them all? And the Plum Lucky short stories? I love Janet Evanovich and I laugh out loud reading them. (So I try to read them only in private!)

We're seriously hijacking this thread, sorry GB. I'm off to start a favorites thread. Let me know what MrsGB thinks of Sookie etc.

Thanks guys.

Chopstix, she hardly has time for movies and when she does she falls asleep before they are through LOL. I guess that is what 2 little kids do to her. She reads when she has spare time, but it is a few minute here and a few there. She would not be able to do that with movies.

I love all the suggestions guys, thanks!

No clue, I am not much into them. Here is a couple links to her site and a little info about it. By the looks of it there is another named "Midnight Sun"

I don't think I would get into the Twilight series. After reading the whole Harry Potter series many times over, I started with Terry Brooks and the Sword of Shannara. I am now on the 6th or 7th book of Terry's and I absolutely LOVE his writing.
