The book I am reading now is "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" by JK Rowling. Next I will be reading the book "B is for Burglar" by Sue Grafton. In the near future I am plaining on reading every fiction book by Stephen King and Suzanne Collins. I think those books would be a good read not only for myself, but maybe for you as well.
24 girls in 7 days by Alex Bradley Spoiled by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan The Great Hamster Massacre by Katie Davies My Invented Life by Lauren Bjorkman Get Well Soon by Julie Halpern HappyFace by Stephen Emond All these books are rated "YA" (Young Adult) Which means they are for preteen girls (just the one I said)
To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite. I love all of the classics, but I also love a lot of the current stuff, Hunger Games, Harry Potter series, Twilight Series, Davinci Code series, anything by Patricia Cornwell and John Grisham. I typically read 25-30 books a year.
I just read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton for the first time and I loved it. It?s a classic for good reason. But don't take my word for it. You should consider reading an online plot summary to see if it piques your interest. A great site that I use a lot is called The Plot Spot. They have a lot of great plot summaries and I know that Ethan Frome is included. http://theplotspot.net/BookPages/Ethan-Frome/Ethan-Frome.html
