I have read all but two of her books, and really think i'm addicted.

I have really gotten back into reading this past year, and have read countless books from a wide range of authors, (i don't have children, hence lots of spare time) So years ago i read my sisters keeper that was the first, and the only one that has taken me a while to read was tenth circle, and i have just finshed 19 minutes, which i loved.

I so sad that two more books and it will all end, also so sad that these books really make me sad and think about the issues and the people within the stories for days after, although in my opninion that makes a good book, does anyone else, read books quickly, and also love reading jodi picoult?

I enjoyed them to start with, but they all go the same way and end with a court case so I stopped reading them.

I enjoyed her to start with as well, then they all get a bit samey...court drama, and nearly identical characters in each book.

well i always mix it up a little bit, read a but of picoult, a bit of koomson, real life stories, really loving reading at the moment, just about to start fatal storm

I gave up when a male teacher ended up with a pupil's bra in his pocket-it was innocent, but he really should have known better-it was no wonder he lost his job and had a court case!

ah well each to their own, and all that, i just really like her style and that is clearly samey samey, but addictive to me

Plain Truth is fab... as is My Sister's Keeper (to be read BEFORE seeing the film, imo)

I love picoult, koomson, kinsella... all the girlie stuff!

JohnDory Tue 14-Jul-09 14:47:36

Really enjoyed Plain Truth and Change of Heart. Will be reading 19 Minutes soon which i got from our local church shop for £1- bargain!

Love Jodi Picoult books, and Kinsella and Koomson, much be something about these authors that appeal to the same people - Am just trying to finish My sisters keeper so I can watch it at the cinema

Makingchanges Tue 14-Jul-09 15:07:18

I do find though I have to check if I'm not sure if I've got them as they do kinda merge abit when you are reading the back

cookielove Tue 14-Jul-09 20:33:32

i also love all said authors, and have read all that is available at the moment from them

I love her books, I'm currently reading Mercy, which I don't think is as good as some of hers.

I really enjoyed My Sister's Keeper and Plain Truth.

cookielove Tue 14-Jul-09 21:33:23

yes actually i loved plain truth to

alicecrail Tue 14-Jul-09 21:35:29

I find i read them very quickly and for 'trash' they do really make me think about stuff that i wouldn't day to day (iyswim?)

Wanderingsheep Tue 14-Jul-09 21:43:31

I am half-way through "My Sister's Keeper" at the moment as I wanted to read it before I saw the film. I am quite enjoying it, although my taste in books is usually what others would call crap!

cookielove Tue 14-Jul-09 22:11:22

oh i'm so glad others like her to,

GossipMonger Tue 14-Jul-09 22:13:27

I hate her with a passion!

Love Kinsella who also writes under the name MadeleineWickham and her books are great too.

cookielove Tue 14-Jul-09 22:16:45

oooh that is handy to know as i love kinsella, oh, how can you hate her?

I'm reading My Sister's Keeper, and I find the switching between narrators is clever and a great way to show everybody's perspective but each time they switch it jolts me and I don't actually find it 'unputdownable'.
I have a child with sn and I've found it quite sccary reading the mother's perspective, because I know to a degree I put my sn child first because he has more needs, and I do wonder how far I would go in the monther's situation.

I was actualyl wondering what else she has written, as I would like to read some more of hers.

My Sister's Keeper was the first Jodi Picoult I read. Also enjoyed Plain Truth but found they all blended into one after a bit.

Love Sophie Kinsella (am waiting for my local library to get her latest book in - am 21st on the reservation list!)

Looked up Koomson and found I have read one of hers - may try some others as well smile

alicecrail Thu 16-Jul-09 10:52:30

I have read: Plain truth, Second glance and Change of heart. Although they are not particularly original and all have the same sort of story/background they are so addictive and i know that i will enjoy any of her books, without having to read the back, which when you are wrestling with a feral toddler in the library is a definite bonus!

LovelyRita - what is the book called?
