    Water for Elephants
    My Sisters Keeper (apparently there are 2 titled this - get the murder mystery one, let me find the author for you.)
    I also just bought "The Hunger Games" because my mom and cousin were reading it. I can't wait to start it.

    Just finished a military book called Vino in Vo by Krissy Kreuger.

    Other suggestions:
    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (the name is ridiculous but it is an EXCELLENT book)
    Goodnight, Beautiful - Dorothy Koomson
    Swan Song - Robert McCammon
    A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini

    If you like Young Adult books, the Immortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is good.

    I read Water for Elephants a few months back and watched the movie last week. I have to say, they did a fairly good job. I don't think Reese and Robert had any chemistry at all...but other than that, they did a good job following the book.

    Sorry for the thread jack
