    Thoroughbred series by Johanna Campbell(I think the earlier ones are the best)
    Percy Jackson and the Olympian series by Rick Riordan
    Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
    The House of Night series by PC and Kirstin Cast
    Jake, Reinvented
    Black for Remembrance by Carlene Thompson
    The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix

    And books by the authors Sarah Dessen
    And books by the author Jodi Piccoult (sp?)

    I know a lot of the first ones are more for kids, but sometimes you just have to take a step back from reality.

    And if you can survive it. Try reading The Scarlet Letter.

    I'll think of more later.

    Yes, I love the Thoroughbred series. Unfortunately they don't sell it anymore in stores (in Alberta anyway...) which really sucks! I also agree with tempest that the earlier ones #1-22 are the best.

    Here are some authors that I like write good books:

    Nicholas Evans (wrote the Horse Whisperer)
    Robin Cook
    Michael Palmer
    Tess Gerritsen
    (these 3 authors above write medical whodunits)
    Paulo Coelho... his books are very interesting and refereshing. Pretty philosophical deliberation about deep issues like meaning of life, put in a concrete stories.

    Their are a lot of good books I know. Read all of the Alex Hawke Series Books By Ted Bell. They are a adult read and you can't stop reading the book once you start. I don't do romance though sorry. But try those books you will really enjoy it.
