    I just cannot stop reading Maeve binchy. Whenever I finish one, another appears somehow. She one of the greatest writers! Anyone ever read one? Pure enjoyment, inexplicably personal...
    Lol I won't (hopefully) I just get so distracted by Hay Day. I really do need to catch up on my reading though. Oh and you can tell I don't read much because I have no idea what most people are talking about on this thread (authors & books), well besides Stephen King but that's about it....

    Don't feel that way! There are soooooo many authors out there...I just happened to stumble upon Binchey. I usually go to used book sales and look for anything interesting...it's hit or miss but when I find a good author, I can't get enough! Loved the hunger games too.

    Oh yes there are great books out there. I have SO many free ebooks on my kindle from authors ive never heard of and they actually turned out to be great along with many others that I've purchased. I really enjoyed the hunger games also. Lol books seem so strange to me now, I should think about reading more. Gotta catch up on my Pretty Little Liars but its so different than the show & it gets confusing lol.

    I went through a Japanese phase...top picks are "the nightingale floor". Amazing & I think it's a trilogy...another is "along the takaido road". Of course the classic "shogun". All three are great reads. (If u are interested in a great book that takes place in China, gotta read "the good earth"!!)

    as as for what I'm reading now...anything by Maeve Binchey that I can get my hands on...one of the most amazing modern writers!!
    Have only just seen this! forgot about this thread if I'm honest :P I'll have to have a look for those books Neen

    I'm reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern its brilliant!

    AMAZING author...stories about realistic people that usually take place in Ireland (where my sis lives so I feel closer to her when I read them) although one I read took place in a small fishing village in Greece. I recomend silver lake & the copper beech- so good! She has an amazing ability to create characters that you instantly care about. I hate those books where you're like...who is that again? You know?

    Yes, I have Whitethorn Woods, and have read Tara Road, but not Copper Beech or Silver Lake. I also have Quentins, which has characters from both Whitethorn Woods and Tara Road in it. I've also read Circle of Friends.

    I have almost every book Nora Lofts wrote, 34 in all in my library. She wrote a couple of trilogies that are just brilliant. Keep an eye out for her books if you go to secondhand book shops or fairs. I just love everything she wrote.

    Since getting my ipad mini, i find real books a hassle, and so have been mainly reading free books, but will look up Copper Beech and Silver Lake and see how much they cost, seeing as you recommend them.
