Misery and tommyknockers are my favorite Stephen King books.

I used to read a lot when I was younger.  I should start again, maybe once the snow starts flying.

I am currently reading, Unspeakable, by Sandra Brown.

Synopsis

Carl Herbold is a cold-blooded psychopath who has just escaped the penitentiary where he was serving a life sentence. Bent on revenge, he's going back to where he began--Blewer County, Texas...
Born deaf, lately widowed, Anna Corbett fights to keep the ranch that is her son's birthright, unaware that she is at the center of Herbold's horrific scheme--and that her world of self-imposed isolation is about to explode...
Drifter Jack Sawyer arrives at Anna's ranch asking for work, hoping to protect the innocent woman and her son from Herbold's rage. But Sawyer can't outrun the secrets that stalk him--or the day of reckoning awaiting them all...

Really good book, a page turner.  Smiley

29 A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini

Just finished this one - really good book. It's all about the women in Afghanistan and what they go through with all the conflict there. Also describes their cultural and religious practices.

That list is for panty-waists if it starts with Harry Potter and Twilight. Ha Ha Ha

Who made that stupid list? No one with any intellect or respect for world
literature, I'll wager.

Quite a few on that list are NY Times Bestsellers. I tried to get "The Other Boleyn Girl" at the library, but they didn't have any available copies.  Tongue
