Rich Dating. (Rich Idiot series)
If you want something easy, a little bit rude and very real that provides some of the most hideous dating stories ever... You might like this!
Bridget Jones does rich idiots!

Will Moss says: said you might like a 'romance' - in which case I can't recommend highly enough 'Love and Summer' by William Trevor - a great writer on top form

How about 'Every 4 Minutes'? It's unusual and moving, sad and uplifting. I think you'll enjoy it.

Just bought The Obituarist. So far, so good.

I read Shadow of the Wind. A really good read. It got to the point where I couldn't put it down, even reading into the small hours of the morning!

Blood Sisters by Barbara Keating......bit of romance, bit of murder, brilliant story line and there are 2 follows on books to it if you want to carry on the story.

Not a good idea, if you check this thread you will notice that a previous self-promo has been deemed 'unhelpful' by other contributors and there is a reason for it - see the 'Important Announcement'.

Can I recommend 'Beautiful Disaster' by Jamie McGuire (think spelt right)... not 50 shades 'naughty' but well written and fantastic depth to the characters. Probably for the younger age bracket. I'll look up your suggestion now :)

If you enjoy a good modern romantic read, try anything by Nicholas Sparks. Absolutely beautifully written books with emotionally charged characters, and you can never usually forecast the ending due to a bit of a twist/thriller thrown in for good measure. I would probably start with the more well known like 'The Notebook' or 'Dear John' but I've read them all... amazing pageturners and very readable. 'Message in a Bottle' had a profound effect on me as I read this first, then I fell in love with the author. However for true romance I agree with Mr R A Llewellyn, you can't beat the classics: 'Pride & Prejudice', 'Jane Eyre', etc. Happy reading!!

Just finished reading Mortality by Christopher Hitchens and Skin by Roald Dahl. I found them very good.

Thanks everyone. Im checking out all the suggestions as we speak. If the ladies on here like 50 shades etc then try ' insufferable proximity ' by z. stefani. Its such an amazing book and very well written :) i cant actually find a book that compares to it. If anyones read it and knows any that can top this please let me know.

Paul, please read previous post in a thread. Amazon only allow self-promo in the MOA Forum as explained in the 'Important Announcement from Amazon'. Mr. R. A. Llewellyn Brown may have mentioned his above but he also joined in the discussion by recommending plenty of other titles. Just dumping a link for your own book is likely to upset people in these discussion threads and your post could well be deleted by Amazon.

There is also Nicci French (husband and wife team), most of them are standalone thrillers but they have also started a series with Blue Monday and Tuesday's Gone. Also have you read the novels by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - Shadow of the Wind, Angel's Game and Prisoner of Heaven? Gothic thrillers set in Barcelona that emphasise the importance and power of books and reading, wonderful stories.

The Apothecary's Apprentice and The Snorg are real crackers.

Have you tried any of the Scandi crime thrillers? Jo Nesbo, Arnaldur Indridason, Yrsa Sigurdardottir, Johan Theorin, Hakan Nesser, Karin Fossum, Karin Alvetegen to name a few, also the French author Fred Vargas, she is definitely underrated in the UK, intriguing plots with humour and some quirky characters.

If you like thrillers, try Andrew Kaufman, if you like a medical aspect, try The Trial by Ryan Butcher. I've read other good thrillers, but can't remember off the top of my head

Janet Evanovich does a good series of books about a female bounty hunter - the first one is called One for the Money. She also wrote a few standalone ones which are easy fluffy reads.
