As a book lover, I am always looking for great book recommendations. Currently I am on a fiction feast, but am open to some suggestions. I have to bring some ideas to my book group this week so any suggestions you have are welcome. If you can provide a little synopsis, all the better!!

What's on your MUST-READ list??

Well, you can start with "The Alchemist" by Paolo Coelho. Then there's "The Greatest Salesman in the World" by Og Mandino. Then there's Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Oh I love Paolo Coelho. I am so into his works such as Veronika Decides to Die and Eleven Minutes.

Hey, I've read 11 Minutes and love it too! It's realistic and very insightful, for mature readersn only.

I have yet to read Veronika Decides to Die. Heard there's a movie version of it starring Sarah Michelle Gellar

I am currently reading Pretty Little Liars - Flawless. It is a series of young adult novels by Sara Shepard. It has a TV series too. The series follows the lives of four girls Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily  whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison. Three years later, they begin receiving various messages from someone using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets.

I'm on a leadership kick, and next on my list is "Thriving on Chaos" by Tom Peters.  Haven't read any of his work yet and I'm looking forward to it.  Besides, with 3 small kids running around the house the title sold me right away!

And there's another one I totally dig.

Try reading "Making Friends" by Andrew Matthews. It's a sensible read on human relationships, especially with keeping friends, and very easy to read, plus, with his own drawings and illustrations, too!

I thought that it's for kids, but no, it's good for all ages. Anybody can relate to it. Very practical and insightful

I would recommend Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child for good well-written thrillers.  They have a series based on an eccentric and brilliant FBI agent that are very good. They co-author those books together and also write separately.  They are for entertainment purposes only though.  I loved Les Miserables by Victor Hugo but it may not be what you are looking for.   If you consider science fiction as a possibility then one of the greatest series ever written is the Foundation trilogy by Issac Asimov.  Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card is also one you might want to consider.  It is very fast paced with characters that you will care about. It is usually loved by anyone that reads it.
