My favorite book is I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb. I've read it three times. He also wrote She's Come Undone which is another of my favorites.

My favorite author is Janet Evanovich.

She writes the "Stephanie Plum" series. It's about this character Stephanie Plum who gets fired from her job selling lingerie & she goes to work for her cousin as a Bounty Hunter. She has NO EXPERIENCE being a bounty hunter, so of course she goes through some really funny, crazy things in getting her marks. Not only that, her family is plain crazy, her grandmother is a loon. I have NEVER laughed so hard as I did when reading these books, I just love them & I love how Evanovich wrote them, it really gets you in to the books.

I'm really into E. Lynn Harris right now. I've read a few of his books and I enjoyed them.

I have actually read all of the Chronicles of Narnia at least 5 times each, I love the world that C.S. Lewis created!
I've also read the original 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' quite a few times, very dark yet very entertaining. Looking forward to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie that is in production.

What did you think of Alice herself Micky? She'd be rather difficult to tell a story to
