Erica I thought vanishing acts and second glance were better than the 10th circle. Ive never heard of Wonder Women or falling to earth! I LOVE JODI PICCOULT BOOKS!


message 2: by Ruth (new)

Ruth i've only read two, but found them very readable and interesting, with lots of ideas for discussion. ruth


message 3: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger Falling To Earth is NOT a Jodi Picoult book. It was thought to be for a long time but after looking around for it forever I started looking into it. I verified with Picoult that the book was not written. The manuscript was stolen and the contract dissolved.


message 4: by Andrea (new)

Andrea I love her books. I just finished reading my 12th book by her Handle with Care. It was good. Just as all of her other books have been. It was not a favorite of mine. I love all of her books and I plan to eventually read the other four books too!


message 5: by Jayla (new)

Jayla This book is so wonderful..I love it with all my heart. I cried at the end of it. It was truely amazing it kept me focused.

Which one?


message 7: by ♥BookGeek♥ (new)

♥BookGeek♥ Drop dead Gogeous in not a Jodi Picoult book...


message 8: by Robyn (new)

Robyn Loved Nineteen Minutes. One of her best. :)


message 9: by Sanhita (new)

Sanhita I have read one My Sister's Keeper and am reading Mercy currently. I find her plots very different and novel and the style of writing very gripping!! Shall try to get rest of the books and read!!


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

I think she should get some kind of award for My Sister's Keeper.


message 11: by Morgan (new)

Morgan F Robyn wrote: "Loved Nineteen Minutes. One of her best. :)"

I agree. It was the first of hers I read, and so far the best. I've nearly read all her books by now, with the exception of Mercy and Keeping Faith.


message 12: by Jo (new)

Jo I have read all of Jodi Picoult books with the exception of " Wonder Woman " and enjoyed everyone of them. She has a new one due out in March.

message 13: by Deana (new)

Deana Young Love to hate "My Sister's Keeper" -- actually want to email Picoult and tell her I hated the ending. But love her writing -- so comfortable and draws you in. I fight sleep trying to read to the end of the next chapter, the next page, the next sentence, the next word. Love her books and her twists and turns. I am HOOKED!


message 14: by Jo (new)

Jo Has any one read "Wonder Woman" ? It didn't look to be as interesting as her other books , which I loved.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

LOVED Handle with Care. THE BEST BOOK!!!!


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

i am currently reading House rules, her new book. ITS AMAZING!!

Movie ending is much better!


message 18: by Sara (new)

Sara Q8 i have read my sisters's keeper i loved it
iam wondreing what is the next book to read


message 19: by Marissa (new)

Marissa Lily wrote: "LOVED Handle with Care. THE BEST BOOK!!!!"

I enjoyed Handle with Care but it was too much like My Sister's Keeper (which I love, love, loved) I get worried sometimes that she'll become like a Danielle Steele, coming out with a new book like every 2 months lol.. I hope not because I've read almost all her books and she's fantastic.

As for my faves, I would say My Sister's Keeper because it's the first I read but Salem Falls and the Pact are both awesome.. So is 19 Minutes and Harvesting the Heart lmao I love almost all the books.. I hated Mercy and The Tenth Circle though


message 20: by Ala (new)

Ala So far I've only read three of her books.

My sisters keeper, The Pact & Nineteen minutes.

My favorite one is probably Nineteen minutes.

The reason why is because every time you begin to thing Peter was in the right, an angry and upset parent stands up and says something to make you think again. A writer who can play devil's advocate to her own characters is a gifted writer indeed. :)


message 21: by Chloe (new)

Chloe Apparently, the last eight books aren't exactly Jodi's.


message 22: by NJ (new)

NJ I find it weird that some of the books in this list are not even written by Jodi Picoult.

agreed!i cry for every jodi picoult i read!


message 24: by Shacoria (new)

Shacoria Jodi Picoult did not write "The Lovely Bones" or any of the books listed as 24-27. Why are they even on this list?

People fail to read what the list is about. I have even been guilty of this on other lists. Only someone with library status can delete them.

I've noticed it on other lists too. It's so weird. I see 'twilight' and 'harry potter' on just about every list even lists that they don't belong on like 'best books for pre-schoolers'


message 27: by Lily (new)

Lily i loved my sisters keeper, nineteen minutes, keeping faith and sing you home. The pact was my least favourite picoult book but I really want to read change of heart. Why are there alot of books on the list that picoult hasn't even written?


message 28: by Jen (new)

Jen I created this list a few years ago and have no idea how other NON Jodi Picoult written books got on the list. I am having trouble finding out how to edit the list so I can remove some of the books...very annoying. I hope to get it figured out soon.

I got rid of all the non-Picoult books for you. =)


message 30: by Jen (new)

Jen Thank you!!


message 31: by Cipi (new)

Cipi LOBEL IT'S AMAZING HOW THIS AUTHOR MANAGES TO GIVE EACH OF HER BOOKS A DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALITY. EACH BOOK IS GUT WRENCHING, BRINGS YOU COMPLETELY INTO THE STORY, YET DIFFERENT. MANY AUTHORS ARE SO PREDICTABLE, BUT NOT JODI. IT'S A PLEASURE TO FIND A NEW ONE ON THE SHELF!


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

But there is almost always a court case which gets tiresome for me.


message 33: by Marie (new)

Marie My Sisters keeper was the first and best of the JP books I have read.


message 34: by Jo Marie (new)

Jo Marie My ultimate favourite books of hers are Second Glance and Perfect Match.. And I also love all her other novels that tackle about motherhood.. I am a mother so I can't help but be affected with the stories :)


message 35: by Teri (new)

message 36: by Claudia (new)

Claudia Mosey I just finished LONE WOLF,loved the story,and learned alot abt wolves!


message 37: by Katrina (new)

Katrina Lynn So far I have read Handle with Care, Perfect Match, and Change of Heart. I couldn't pick a favorite if my life depended on it!!!!!!! I love her style of writing but more the depth of what she writes about!!! I'm now on to Mercy!!! I doubt I'll be disappointed!!!!

Second Glance is my favorite!

Beth Mosier It's hard to vote because I loved them ALL!


message 40: by Theresa (new)

Theresa I've Read "Change of Heart", My Sister's Keeper, Lone Wolf, and am now reading "Nineteen Minutes". I'm saving judgement for after I've read more of her brilliant, and thought-provoking books! I plan to read them ALL!

message 42: by Alexa (new)

Alexa My favorite was definitely House Rules. It was amazing.


message 43: by Sue (new)

Sue Harshbarger I really like Jodi's books, my favorite so far has been Vanishing Acts.


message 44: by Teri (new)

Teri My favorite so far.... is Handle With care, I fell in love with little Willow on page 1!!


message 45: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Handle with care is by far my favorite book so far. It kept you reading right up until the last page, in which everything changes. I cried like a baby!!


message 46: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Chase Jodi is one of my favorite authors! My favorites so far have been The Pact and Nineteen Minutes

I removed them. People are always adding books to lists that should not be there. I have even done it myself when half asleep. Please let me know if you see any more.


message 48: by Rhoda (new)

Rhoda Miller I Love Jodi Piccoult books. My goal is to read them all - I am well on the way. MY favorite is the Storyteller.


message 49: by Emma (new)

Emma Stevenson I have loved all of her books that i've read- my favorites have been Tenth Circle, Nineteen Minutes and Plain Truth. I just discovered Plain Truth is a movie and it was very similar to the storyline of the book.


message 50: by Lisette (new)

Lisette I absolutely love Jodi Picoult's books! So far my favorite is The Pact, but I also really enjoyed My Sister's Keeper and Nineteen Minutes!
