    I’d go for the Secret, Slaughterhouse-Five and On Writing (especially helpful if you do English Literature or Creative writing – he really hits the basics home!) P.S. Thanks for the post you left on my new blog! Totally agree with you about having to read Breaking Dawn anyway 🙂

    Please read Slaughterhouse Five, The Other Queen or Rosewater and Soda Bread – only because they’re on my TBR list and I want to know whether they’re gonna be good 😉

      I’ve read The Other Queen and Rosewater and Soda Bread now, maybe I’ll tackle Slaughterhouse Five next! I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for helping me choose!

    oooh i didn’t see On Writing…that book’s fab – and I’m not a Stephen King fan.

    Are You There Vodka really cracked me up but even I, as open minded as I like to think I am, found myself cringing at some of the stuff Chelsea Handler will just blurt out. Perhaps I am more prudish than I thought? LOL

    Emma by Jane Austen; there’s a reason it’s a classic and it’s unlike the others you’ve read recently. I always like to mix it up.

    Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri definitely! It’s one of the best books I’ve read in recent years. It’s one of the five fiction titles selected by NY Times as best books of 2008. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
    I’m also a fan of Belle. She’s one of my favorite fictional characters. I’m a book and movie lover and write about them in my blog. You’re welcome to stop by. Thanks for a wonderful book blog you have here!

    One Thousand White Women was fantastic!!! I didn’t much care for the Lovely Bones. But I have loved pretty much all of Larry McLurty books.
