1) Meg Cabot. She is very much a "girly" author. I have read Queen of Babble, Boy Meets Girl, Every Boys Got One, Size 12 Is Not Fat and have recently finished Size 14 Is Not Fat Either. The books are hilarious. Shout out to my friend, Ashley, who has gotten me addicted!
2) Ted Dekker. He is a Christian fiction author that writes thrillers. I've read Showdown, House, Obsessed and my favorite is Three. Three came out in movie form also and is really good! He does a fantastic job of tying in the book at the end to religion.
3) Karen Kingsbury - I've just started my first novel of hers...Redemption. I've heard of her books from Ashley and Kristin F. I'm only half way through this first one, and I can barely put it down!! She is also a Christian fiction writer. If you like fiction, read this!!!
So, does anyone have any other suggestions? I'm always looking for a good book!
