I just started reading it too. After finishing about 220 pages it's still boring. I hope I can finish it soon. I still have three James Patterson books on my shelf as well as Inkheart from Cornelia Funke. As I enjoyed Harry Potter so much I will try with another children's book.

Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew. If you think your tiny yard is too small to harvest a varied crop of veggies, think again! I have a big yard and I'm using this method - much less water usage and easier to maintain. Vertical growing for tomatoes and squash!

Void Moon by Michael Connelly. I literally could not put it down until I finished it.

Okay, just finished *Promise me* by Harlan Coben. At first it was a little bit boring but in the end it got better and better. I also have to recommend Greg Iles, I just love his books. I also enjoyed Patricia Cornwell's "Kay Scarpetta" series.

Can anybody recommend something like that?!

I also took some of the books which were mentioned here on my wishlist on amazone. With my next order I will have some of them. Thanks in advance.

I'm also a Patricia Cornwell fan, seems to be overdue for a new book?

I see you've mentioned James Patterson, you might also enjoy:

Kathy Reichs
Linda Fairstein
Lisa Scottoline
J A Jance
to name a few.

I'm reading the new Harry Potter book, but also loved The Kite Runner, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and The DaVinci Code.

Have you read any of Janet Evanovich's books? I just finished Lean Mean Thirteenand just like the twelve that proceeded it laughed all the way through it. If you want a funny, light reading, type of book give her a try.

I just finished Water for Elephants. It was so good I couldn't put it down. Also reread Fahrenheit 451. I've started I am not myself these days a memoir by Armistead Maupin and again A Tale of Two Cities

I just finished and very much enjoyed " The Testament of Gideon Mack" and am currently reading "The Alchemist's daughter " , well written and enjoyable but not that absorbing, and I am also ready Arthur Miller's autobiography "Timebends" and re-reading Simon Schama's "History of Britain" ( both absolutely fantastic).

Next on my list is a book called "Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman's Skiff" by Rosemary Mahoney. I saw it reviewed in an article called "Beach Books with Brain" in More Magazine. I've been reading "typical beach books" all summer, so I'm ready for something that will grab me but also have some substance.
